Day One Concert Highlights From Rocklahoma 2012- Slash, Chevelle, Red, Creed And More! [PHOTOS]
Friday: Day one (05-25-12) of Rocklahoma 2012 has come and gone. The hang overs and ringing ears however will endure for the rest of the ‘Memorial Day’ weekend. I know, I know…“About damn time Critter!”
I wanted to get these pictures up sooner but it’s been crazy as hell with all the non-stop live music from the three the stages, band interviews, partying and just hangin’ out with everyone here at Rocklahoma.
From the bands, promoters, road crews, vendors and fans these are some of the coolest people around. I’d like to thank Chamie McCurry, Kirstyn Schwartz and the rest of the AEG Live wrecking crew for their hospitality and for putting one one hell of a festival!
Every year Rocklahoma just keep getting better and better. This year was no exception, truly they’ve out done themselves yet again!
The first day of Rocklahoma we saw an incredible line-up from the Main stage with Adelita’s Way, Cavo returned to the festival this year, Chevelle kicked ass! They can make a s#!t load of noise for just three guys. Slash delivered a rockin’ set playing everything from his solo efforts, Guns N’ Roses and even Velvet Revolver! Headlining Friday night we saw Creed who are currently reunited and touring the states and I’m sure over seas this Summer. Every band from the Main stage gave 110% They set the mood and atmosphere of what to expect from the rest of the weekend.
On the ‘Hard Rock’ stage kicking off this year’s festival Beneath pounded the crowd with an adrenaline fueled set of hard rock and metal that created a frenzied and immediate reaction, the pit kicked off and no one in ear shot could stand still. Janus took the stage next followed by Redlight King who lead a huge sing-a-long to their hit single ‘Bullet In My Hand’ . Red kept the crowd going and had a kick ass set, P.O.D. dominated the ‘Hard Rock’ stage! They became the topic of discussion all evening and delivered a stand out performance that everyone was talking about. One of the best shows I’ve ever seen by them. Eve To Adam closed out the ‘Hard Rock’ stage but not before thoroughly rockin’ out with their signature retro meets modern sound. Including a totally bad ass cover of Alice Cooper’s ‘School’s Out’.
FRIDAY: DAY ONE CONCERT HIGHLIGHTS FROM ROCKLAHOMA 2012
Having concert A.D.D. I’ll do my best to get Saturday’s photos up from day two of Rocklahoma, hopefully sometime later this afternoon. We’ve got some great concert pictures of Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Trivium, New Medicine, Volbeat and more! I’ll continue posting and sharing what I can when I can. Our coverage of this year’s mega three day, three stage live music festival will more than likely spill into next week!
You can check out what we have so far, all the interviews and photos right here. Looking forward to day three of Rocklahoma 2012 with Hellyeah, Chickenfoot, Queensryche and all the other kick ass bands who made the trip to Pryor, OK. to this year’s event.
