The 2011 ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL wrapped up its bludgeoning streak through the country last week, but before the fest was finished, several of this year’s festival artists took to the mainstage in Dallas, TX to perform a special tribute to Dimebag Darrell by performing Pantera’s ‘Walk’. A video of the performance can be viewed at the official ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL YouTube page now!
Numerous artists on this year’s fest took the time to thank the fans and festival team in a brand new video that can be viewed at the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL YouTube page. More words of praise and thanks can be viewed below:
“The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL was even more rad than I thought it would be! I got turned on to killer new bands, rediscovered legendary older bands, and played to the hands down best fans on the planet,” states Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin. “From the producers of the whole event down to the carpenters, everything was handled with professionalism and care, making a drama-free environment that was a pleasure to be a part of.”
“The critically acclaimed ‘tour of the summer,’ the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL 2011, was quite an enigma to me when we first were approached with the idea,” adds Megadeth vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine. “But lemme tell ya, it became real clear that we had made a brilliant decision! I was honored to play for John Reese and whole ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL team.”
“The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL was certainly a touring highlight for me in the seven years I have been in Megadeth,” states Megadeth drummer Shawn Drover. “So many fantastic bands, amazing crowds every night and the overall positive vibes both on and off stage between bands, crews and the entire festival staff will be something I will remember for life.”
“What an amazing summer on the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL! A huge thanks to John Reese and everyone involved for creating such a band friendly atmosphere for metal and hard rock,” adds Machine Head drummer Dave McClain. “Machine Head are honored to have been a part of it for the second time and we hope there’s more in the future!”
