The lord of horror himself has been announced for Bloodstock Open Air 2015! That’s right, none other than Rob Zombie himself has been confirmed as BOA 2015’s second headline act, joining Dutch symphonic metallers Within Temptation at the top of the bill for next year. An infrequent visitor to these shores, with only two Download appearances and one tour in the last decade, this appearance at Bloodstock marks Rob Zombie’s first UK headline festival appearance. Anyone who has experienced the Rob Zombie live show in the flesh knows it’s guaranteed to be one hell of a show! Rob and his band John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish will be bringing their full production to Catton Hall so the closing night of Bloodstock 2015 promises to be extra special.
The one and only Rob Zombie himself had this to say about the news he’ll be headlining England’s premier “proper” metal festival:
“I am so ready to get on a plane, and get my ass over to merry ol’ England for BLOODSTOCK. We’ve had some of the best shows of our lives over there and can’t wait to add this to the list. Besides, it’s called ‘BLOODSTOCK’ so how could it not be bloody fucking fun?”
