“In celebrating our 40th anniversary and our farewell to live performing, we are bringing our ’40 & F–k It’ worldwide farewell tour one last time to the area that created us!”

The three-day weekend festival will also feature Ace Frehley, Monster Magnet, Fuel, Tom Keifer’s Cinderella, Dokken, Overkill, Texas Hippie Coalition, Doro, Four By Fate, Killcode, Jester and American Angel.

“So many more bands to be announced that your head will spin!,” adds Twisted Sister. “Plan on spending a 3-day weekend with us! Details on which days each band will be playing will be announced soon!”

Twisted Sister will wrap up their live career this year with a series of appearances at rock and metal festivals in Europe and Canada this summer starting June 10 at Sweden Rock.

Drummer Mike Portnoy will join the group for the shows after sitting in for some 2015 dates following the passing of AJ Pero at the age of 55 from a heart attack while playing on tour with Adrenaline Mob last year.
