Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor remarks, “It’s been way too long since Slipknot has played ROTR…five years is too long. We’re coming back with a new album and a new show. It’ll feel good to headline again. Everyone, prepare for hell…”
Judas Priest also released a statement about bringing their 40th anniversary tour to the fest: “Rock on the Range brings the Priest back to the USA! We can’t wait to unleash our metal maniacs #priestfamily once more with our ongoing 40th anniversary ‘Redeemer of Souls’ World Tour.”
Ben Burnley of Breaking Benjamin says, “We’re very excited to be back and playing Rock on the Range. It was an honor to be a part of the very first ROTR back in ‘07 and we’re grateful to return to be a part of this amazing rock n roll event.”
