Celebrating its 5th anniversary, this year's Rock on the Range music festival will be held May 21-22 in Columbus, Ohio. Headlining the two-day bash will be A Perfect Circle, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Korn, Stone Sour, and Staind. The weekend will also see scorching performances from Alter Bridge, Black Label Society, and Bullet For My Valentine, among others, and will be hosted by Fuse TV's Juliya.
"We are honored that Rock On The Range has asked us be one of the headliners," says M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold. "Not only is it an amazing show to be apart of, but it holds a deep spot in our hearts. Rock On The Range was the last American show we played with our best friend and drummer, The Rev. We are looking forward to continuing his legacy of rock n roll insanity that night! See you all there."
The Rock on the Range celebration will start early on Friday night, May 20 with the nation's biggest pre-festival Anniversary Party at the venue, featuring performances from two of the world's craziest throwback rock artists--Steel Panther and Lez Zeppelin.
