PRYOR, OK — Today, heavy metal fans across the nation heard the news they’ve been hoping for from The House Of Hair nationally-syndicated radio host and Twisted Sister frontman, Dee Snider!
“It is my distinct pleasure to announce that Twisted Sister will once again be involved with a show that will go down in history. Twisted has just been confirmed as the headliner for the ROCKLAHOMA Festival on Sunday July 15th,” Snider said during his weekly radio show. “Rocklahoma will go down as one of the most momentous concerts of all time.”
Twisted Sister’s ROCKLAHOMA appearance is the band’s only announced North American show for 2007. Twisted Sister will perform full on with costume, make-up and all five original members – Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Mark “The Animal” Mendoza, Eddie “Fingers” Ojeda and AJ Pero.
There are 22 House of Hair bands that will appear at ROCKLAHOMA, the largest rock festival of its kind to ever be organized.
To date, ROCKLAHOMA’s three-day line-up includes:
Friday July 13, 2007
Saturday July 14, 2007
Enuff Z Nuff
Sunday July 15, 2007
“When I tell you that this will be the most incredible line-up ever, you have to believe me. Check it out. Over three days, you’ll have the chance to see so many bands that your head might explode — like that dude in the Judas Priest video,” Snider said, making reference to the 1982 Judas Priest video for “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin.”
Twisted Sister is known for extravagant makeup and shock tactics, as well as for the rebellious mood of their heavy metal music. The band formed in New York in 1976 and played primarily in clubs. The 1984 release of the Twisted Sister’s third album, “Stay Hungry,” brought the band international fame. Videos for the album’s hit singles, “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock” ran constantly on MTV. “Stay Hungry” sold more than 2 million copies by the summer of ’85 and went on to sell more than 3 million copies in the following years. In late 1985, Twisted Sister released their fourth album, “Come Out and Play,” which went gold. Over a span of 30 years, the band released over a dozen albums, including “A Twisted Christmas” in 2006.
Although rumors have been circulating about whether or not band members might retire Twisted Sister, Snider recently put an end to those rumors by discussing ROCKLAHOMA.
“On the Twisted Sister retirement front: Ain’t happening,” he said. “We’re strappin’ on the spandex one more time.
