After revealing Mastodon will be headlining Saturday night at Bloodstock, the organizers have wasted no time at all by confirming that their Friday night headliner will be the mighty Twisted Sister. Anyone who was there in 2010 when they stepped up to stand in for Heaven and Hell, following the passing of Ronnie James Dio will know how special an announcement this is.
This will be the only UK show on the band’s Farewell 1976 – 2016 tour, so it will be the last chance for fans to catch the band live in the UK, as they are set to call it a day after the untimely passing of their drummer AJ Pero earlier this year.
Guitarist Jay Jay French comments: “Our journey in the UK that began in Wrexham in 1982, ends with Bloodstock 2016! Without the recognition that we received from our UK fans, the world would never have known nor would we ever have reached our 40 year milestone!”
