Even though the line up of Soundwave Revolution boasts some of the biggest names in rock and metal, from Alice Cooper to Hole to the Sisters of Mercy and Van Halen fronted by David Lee Roth himself, rumours are spreading that wait, there’s more. Like a set of free steak knives, it appears that the festival is set to offer punters a bonus!
Promoter AJ Maddah has used his trusty Twitter account to let fans and media know that he’s cooking up something saying mysteriously “I’d like to sincerely apologise to the SW staff, production team, site managers, etc. I may have just added another stage to #swREVOLUTION”. When prompted by a twitter follower to reveal whether this meant more bands or longer sets, Maddah replied “Hopefully both. Let’s see how the production pukes react to this news.”
Now you’d think that with 60 bands confirmed for the line up and with such a calibre of headliners, you wouldn’t need any more acts for a festival that will surely sell out within minutes of it going on sale, but it looks like Soundwave Touring might be giving us more!
