Gee, that festival’s a mouthful, isn’t it? This year’s third annual MTS Rock On The Range Canada will be going down August 20 at Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Alice In Chains are headlining. Maybe they’ll play some new shit for the fine folks of Manitoba; by the way…this was that big concert announcement the band teased last week — was it really worth teasing?
Others on the bill include Evanescence (marking the band’s first live performance of the year), Sum 41, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Hinder, Anberlin and more. Wonder who will be playing bass for 5FDP in August?
I have a killer headache right now. Having a hard time typing. So, after the jump, you’ll find a generic quote from a member of one of the bands playing…as taken from the press release I got this morning about the fest.
“It’s always extra special when we can headline in a city where we’ve never been,” says Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains. “I’m pretty sure this will be our first gig ever in Winnipeg, and MTS Rock On The Range Canada is the perfect show for us play. We can’t wait.”
