Part of AEG Live’s World’s Loudest Month, Rocklahoma 2013 was a rousing success, bringing together tens of thousands of hard rock fans and scores of bands. Emceed by That Metal Show’s Eddie Trunk, for three days and nights Pryor, Oklahoma became the epicenter of hard rock. Headliners included Guns N’ Roses, Alice In Chains, and Korn, along with hard rock and metal favorites Ratt, Papa Roach, Bullet For My Valentine, Dokken, Hollywood Undead and many others. And as a special treat for fans of classic rock, Cheap Trick played an amazing set Sunday night, hitting fan favorite after fan favorite.
TheyWillRockYou.com was on the scene, catching up with old friends and making new ones in what was a whirlwind of a weekend. We are happy to report that hard rock is thriving – the classic/established bands are cranking out new work, and there’s a generation of up-and-coming bands ready to take up the mantle. We’ve started to post coverage, and will continue to do so over the coming days, giving you a front row seat to Steel Panther, Cheap Trick, Bullet For My Valentine, Skillet, Halestorm, Papa Roach, Ratt, and Lynam.
In the meantime, check out our photo gallery below for a taste of what a Rocklahoma weekend is like!
