America’s premiere rock festival, Rock on the Range, is back for its second year after a hugely successful inaugural sold out show in 2007, and it’s bigger than ever.
Presented by Right Arm Entertainment, AEG LIVE and the Columbus Crew Stadium, the multi-stage music and lifestyle event has expanded to two days in order to meet the tremendous demand for tickets and will take place on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18 at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH. The lineup for this nationally renowned festival centrally located in the heart of the country includes the debut of the newly reunited Stone Temple Pilots, marking the group’s first performance together in over seven years.
“The time that we’re about to spend together is a true celebration,” says Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo about the band’s upcoming performance.
In addition, Rock on the Range 2008 will feature some of the biggest names in rock, including: Kid Rock, 3 Doors Down, Disturbed, Staind, Papa Roach, Seether, Serj Tankian, Flyleaf, Shinedown, Killswitch Engage, Finger Eleven, Alter Bridge, Filter, Theory of a Dead Man, Sevendust, Default, 10 Years, Bobaflex, Red, Airbourne, Black Tide, Revelation Theory, Ashes Divide, Drive A and more.
This year’s two-day event will feature 28 bands on two stages, an expanded festival village, state of the art main stage LED screens, enhanced main stage and second stage sound and light systems, dynamic new merchandise (T-shirts, hats, hoodies) and an expanded main stage field area for fans who purchase Field General Admission Tickets.
