ROCKLAHOMA Brings Music And Money To Pryor

July 16, 2007 reports: It's back to the '80s for thousands of rock fans in Oklahoma as Rocklahoma wrapped up Sunday. A total of 24 bands played throughout the weekend and organizers say they think about 110,000 people attended the first-ever event. [NOTE: Online estimates have put the attendance at around 30-35,000.]

Fans and organizers are calling Rocklahoma a big success for everyone involved. Huge crowds showed up in Pryor for one thing: the music. But Rocklahoma isn't just about music it's also good for the area.

As bands take the stage and music fills the air fans like 12-year-old Kevin Langley get a chance to rock out.

Kevin says, "It's awesome... especially Friday and Saturday with VINCE NEIL and POISON and RATT. It's awesome... because I never thought so many people would come to Pryor."

All united by the music but from so many different places. Organizers say the turnout has been phenomenal and that they've sold tickets in all 50 states.
