Set times for Welcome To Rockville have been made public, and the set-up and scheduling this year, are just about perfect. This year’s event will unfold over three stages, packed with blistering rock ‘n roll on Saturday and Sunday, April 29th and 30th.
Fort Rock, the sister festival to Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, has set the dates and lineup for 2017. Similar to Rockville, Fort Rock will see Def Leppard headline Saturday, with Soundgarden headlining Sunday evening. Other featured acts include a reunited A Perfect Circle, The Offspring, Mastodon, and Chevelle. The fifth annual show sponsored by Monster Energy Drink will be held on April 29th and 30th at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, FL.
We’ll keep this one short and sweet. Def Leppard continues to put out new rock ‘n roll that matters. Their newer music is comfortably reminiscent, but with a fresh feel. They are buoyed by the fact that in this their fourth decade of rock, they are still touring and playing with virtually the original lineup.
Welcome To Rockville Lineup Announced for 2017 Event
Earlier today, the long-awaited 2017 lineup announcement for Welcome To Rockville was released. This year’s featured bands include a few legendary artists and a slew of up and coming acts. Early bird tickets go on sale Tuesday, December 6th for the April 29th and 30th event at Jacksonville’s Metropolitan Park.
Legendary UK rockers, Def Leppard have just announce a huge tour that will bring the popular rockers to Orlando on two separate occasions. They embark on the tour with a headlining appearance at the inaugural Moonstone Festival at The Central Florida Fairgrounds, before embarking on a 50 city tour that finds them playing with some special guests.
The inaugural Moonstone Festival just kicked it up a notch. Already boasting KISS, Def Leppard, The Flaming Lips and Kansas, today the Orlando-based festival announced a slew of exciting new acts. Read on for the highlight acts, but simply put, this is shaping into one hell of a special event.
The inaugural Moonstone Music Festival is starting to shape up its lineup and the early details are enticing. Rock legends KISS will headline night one, on April 30th, while Def Leppard closes out the May 1st schedule.
This is a classic rock show absolutely worth seeing. Def Leppard will be playing Orlando’s Amway Center on Saturday, January 30th in support of their recently announced new studio album. They’ll be joined by Styx and Tesla, making this an excellent triple bill.
And unlike so many classic bands touring today with tenuous links to the line-ups from their glory days – these line-ups are laced with original members!
