Guitar Hero Van Halen Is Coming


April 21, 2009

Rock Gone Wild, America’s newest and most diverse rock festival, announces seven new additions to its already impressive line-up. Modern rockers Saving Abel will share the stage with 80’s rock legends Dokken, LA Guns (featuring Phil Lewis), Black N’ Blue and the chainsaw wielding, whiskey soaked rockers from Jackyl. Sinners Sunday wouldn’t be complete without an appearance from California based metal gods Armored Saint and the bad boys of the South, Texas Hippie Coalition.

Rock Gone Wild is scheduled to take place August 20-23 at the Freedom Park Festival Grounds in Algona, Iowa. Tickets are available now at or by calling 1-888-677-8877.
