Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains says: “We are looking forward to returning to Rock On The Range as a headliner and rocking out with all of you. Bring It!”

Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows adds: “Rock On The Range is the undisputed champion of American rock festivals. The team over there has done an incredible job of curating a potent mix of all the types of rock’n’roll that any fan could ask for.

“It’s an honour to play at the top of the bill, and we cannot wait to see everyone in May.”

Executive producer for Rock On The Range Gary Spivack says that after this year’s epic lineup which featured Metallica and Korn, they “had to deliver” in 2018.

He continues: “We have one of the only shows from Tool in 2018 – a band the Rangers have been wanting for years – and also having A Perfect Circle on the same festival is something special.

“Adding Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, Godsmack, and the special returns of Stone Sour and Stone Temple Pilots only builds on that excitement. We can’t wait for May.”

Tickets for Rock On The Range 2018 are available through the festival’s website.
