Report: Iowa's Diamond Jo Casino Says 'No' To ROCK GONE WILD

Cole Mathisen of KIMT — a CBS affiliate television station serving Mason City, Iowa; Rochester, Minnesota; and Austin, Minnesota — reports: The future of a major rock festival is uncertain.

The general manager of Diamond Jo Casino in Worth County tells us they're not allowing Rock Gone Wild to happen on any of the casino's licensed grounds.

Promoters are planning to issue a press release at 4:00 p.m. on Friday. They were hoping for a crowd of ten thousand people, now they’re working with lawyers to come up with a plan.

We talked to several of the management companies who oversee some of the headlining acts. Some believe the event is still on while others think it's all but dead.

Hundreds of people who had bought tickets to see major acts are wondering what will happen to their money; others living in Worth County invested a lot more.

Among the bands that were scheduled to appear at Rock Gone Wild were SAXON, JACKYL, WARRANT, TWISTED SISTER, SKID ROW, LITA FORD, DOKKEN, GREAT WHITE, KIX, L.A. GUNS (featuring Phil Lewis), CANDLEBOX and SEVENDUST.
