Here are some fun quotes from people playing it:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We try to listen to our fans and they’ve been saying for years that we should play at Rock On The Range,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Nikki Sixx of MÃƒÂ¶tley CrÃƒÂ¼e. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We’re really excited to play one of America’s great rock festivals.Ã¢â‚¬Â
SlipknotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Corey Taylor says, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Being asked to headline Rock on the Range is an absolute pleasure! Columbus, Ohio has always been very good to us. The line-up looks great; the shows look fantastic. And I personally think it will be an absolute blast for everyone. See you in May!Ã¢â‚¬Â
