Having devoted Friday to tribute bands in 2012, this time Right Arm Entertainment, AEG Live and Crew Stadium are slotting three days of top-tier mega-decibel delights.  Announcing a lineup that almost stretches into thunderous infinity, ROTR will also play host to Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Bullet For My Valentine, Lamb Of God, Skillet, Buckcherry, Halestorm, Hollywood Undead, All That Remains, Steel Panther, Sevendust and tons more.

“Our Goal with ROTR is to constantly create new and interesting ways to expand the event and give even more value to our fans,” Joe Litvag, co-executive producer from AEG Live, said.  “In 2013, we’ve added a comedy tent within the site that will be curated by The Funny Bone comedy club.  Having a slate of incredible, up-and-coming comedians to riff on the rock experience will be a great change of pace for the weekend.

“The site layout is also changing dramatically in 2013 to create better event flow, to add more interactive fan activity to the festival, and to allow even more people to experience the higher caliber of talent on the second stage this year.”

With daily lineups yet to be announced, ROTR is talking ticket deals.  Specifically, the special limited offer, pre-sale weekend tickets for stadium general admission starting at $89.50 (plus fees) and going on sale Jan. 30 and running until Jan. 31.  ROTR will also put a limited number of stadium general admission “4-ticket packs” up for sale the same day, to be available while supplies last.
