Rock Gone Wild canceled


Abe Vigoda (Celebrate) With bands on the bill like Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Dokken, Saxon and many other band's from the 80's, Rock Gone Wild won't be taking place. Promoter's downgraded the show to a smaller venue, added a ticket layaway plan, and slashed ticket prices, but that still wasn't enough to keep the four day festival afloat. Official word is expected shortly, but Natalie Wild (one of the organizers and listed as administrator of the fest's forum) says, "Official RGW press release will be posted today (August 6th). Please understand that we have to wait for our legal department to advise how to move forward. Someone is going to pay for this, and it won't be the fans or me, not two weeks out. Not after every penny of my life savings has gone into this, NOT when everything has been paid for. I don't think anyone can feel what I'm feeling right now."

Diamond Jo's casino notified RGW promoter's yesterday that the event would not be allowed to take place on casino grounds. At this point, it would take a miracle to get a new site and setup in 10 days.

More info as it becomes available.
