The debut event from Rockstar Mayhem producers John Reese and the Creative Artists Agency. Sponsor-driven hard rock in the sheds is a reliable product and one these producers, along with Live Nation, have down to a science.
Outlook: Hard rock in the summer is a winner, and this lineup will resonate with headbangers. But competition could be fierce, with Mayhem, the Cool Tour and a resurrected Ozzfest. Another factor: This is a late-summer tour and the kids could be a little tapped out.
