ROCK
ON THE RANGE

is celebrating its Fifth Anniversary!  America’s premier destination rock
festival–May 21-22 at
Columbus Crew Stadium in
Columbus, Ohio–will
feature a spectacular lineup of rock heavyweights including A Perfect Circle (first
performance of 2011),
Avenged Sevenfold
, Disturbed,
Korn, Stone Sour
and Staind
(first performance in two years).  The unforgettable weekend will also be
highlighted by performances from Danzig,
Hollywood Undead,
Bullet For My
Valentine
, Black
Label Society
and Alter
Bridge
. In addition, Juliya
of Fuse TV
will return as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event.

“Three
years ago my other band Ashes Divide was fortunate enough to play Rock On
The Range as a support act; to return to the same festival and headline
this year with A Perfect Circle is truly an honor,” says Billy Howerdel of
A Perfect Circle.

“We are
honored that Rock On The Range has asked us be one of the headliners,” says M
Shadows of Avenged
Sevenfold
. “Not only is it an amazing show to be apart of, but
it holds a deep spot in our hearts. Rock On The Range was the last American
show we played with our best friend and drummer, The Rev. We are looking
forward to continuing his legacy of rock n roll insanity that night! See you
all there.”

 

“If you
suffer from stimulus overload, the fifth anniversary of Rock On The Range may
be too much for you,” quips Del
Williams
, co-executive
producer
of the event for Right Arm Entertainment
“Virtually all of the bands that make up the top of the Active Rock charts are
performing at America’s biggest Rock festival.   When you look at the
acts on the bill, and think of the massive list of songs that live in the body
of that lineup, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with excitement.”

 

The ROCK ON THE RANGE
celebration will start early on Friday
night, May 20
with the nation’s biggest pre-festival Anniversary Party
at the venue, featuring performances from two of the world’s craziest throwback
rock artists–Steel
Panther
and Lez
Zeppelin
.  Best of all, your ticket to the Anniversary
Party will be absolutely FREE
with every ROCK
ON THE RANGE
weekend ticket purchase!

 

“It seems
like only yesterday that we created this vision for an active rock festival in
the heartland, but it’s actually been five years now.” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer
of the event for AEG
Live
.  “If it weren’t for the loyal fan base of active
rock fans, the ‘Rangers,’ Rock On The Range would still just be an idea on the
back of a napkin!  We can’t think of a better way to say ‘thank you’ then
to throw a big FREE party for everyone!  It will be a night of unmatched
celebration!”
