Last month or so, we revealed the leaked lineup for the 2015 Rockstar Mayhem Festival which wasn’t made official, but it was lineup that we were hoping was true. Well all of your hopes and dreams were answered today when the organizers behind the festival made it official with headliners King Diamond and Slayer with Hellyeah and The Devil Wears Prada on the main stage. Whitechapel will headline the Victory Records stage along with Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice. Tickets will go on sale April 17 at 10 AM your local time with some festival dates participating in a promotion where Lawn general admission tickets will be available for $19.99 for the first 72 hours. Kerry King of Slayer commented on the tour saying, “I don’t know if third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States- NEVER has Mayhem been more evil. DON’T FUCKIN’ MISS IT.” Heavyy Metal legend King Diamond also commented saying, “This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage – it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I’m not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around “Dreams of Horror”. The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You’re all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!” This is definitely going to be one summer tour that you definitely do not want to miss especially if you are a fan of either King Diamond or Slayer. Festival creators John Reese and Kevin Lyman stated, “It has been eight years and it feels like it started just yesterday. We are so excited about this year’s lineup and having the mighty Slayer back in support of a new album. In addition, the first time for King Diamond and HELLYEAH will be awesome, as well as The Devil Wears Prada’s first time on the Main Stage.  The Victory Stage has amazing bands and will play throughout the day.  Heavy music is thriving in America and we are excited to be  a part of it.”
