This year’s Welcome to Rockville, the start of what is billed as the World’s Loudest Month, is a mixed bag of artists providing something for everyone. Saturday’s headliners is Soundgarden who is touring to promote their 25th, yes 25th, anniversary of their smash 1991 album Badmotorfinger. The special release of the anniversary collection will include the original album, unreleased studio tunes, live recordings and much more. The Offspring, just an all-around fun band, admit it, you sing “Pretty Fly For a White Guy” in the car, Pierce the Veil, The Pretty Reckless, and Alter Bridge also perform.
Sunday’s headliner is none other than the iconic hit makers Def Leppard. This show is sure to be a sell-out, and a bucket list show for many. They will be joined in the line-up by Welcome to Rockville veterans Papa Roach, In This Moment ( I predict a cross over duet performance between them), Chevelle, Seether, and new comers to the show Cover Your Tracks and Fire From the Gods. A much anticipated Motionless in White will also be appearing.
