JACKYL has replaced THIN LIZZY on the billing of the third annual Rocklahoma festival, set to take place July 9-12, 2009 on the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma.
Director of Operations Dave Giencke states, "After THIN LIZZY's cancellation, we wanted to bring in a band that has consistently been one of the fan favorites! JACKYL's energy and stage presence is like no other band who has ever performed at Rocklahoma and they promise to step up even more!"
Frontman Jesse James Dupree added: "I was equally disappointed that THIN LIZZY cancelled their tour. I am a huge fan of theirs and wanted to make it down to Rocklahoma see them perform. Since I was going to be there anyway and there's an open slot, it made sense to have JACKYL perform."
The third annual Rocklahoma will have over ninety bands on four stages.
