Yes, you read that headline correctly. Extreme are the second headliner of Ramblin' Man Fair and will join ZZ Top for what will be one of the highlights of the summer.

Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt said:

"There will always be a special place for the UK in our hearts. Way before 'More Than Words' hit around the world, The UK was Getting The Funk Out. Recognizing Extreme as a rock band first and foremost has and will always connect us. Cannot wait to rock with you at Ramblin' Man!!!"

Gary Cherone added:

"We are honoured to be headlining the Ramblin’ Man Fair. Extreme has always had a special relationship with the UK fans and we look forward to a great night."

Rival Sons have also been added to the bill and will headline the new 'Groove Rider' Stage, hot on the heels of their currently critically acclaimed tour support with Black Sabbath.

Also playing Ramblin' Man will be the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band and Colour Of Noise.

The festival organisers have promised more announcements to come shortly.

Last week we stated that the classic line-up of Dokken, Don Dokken, George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and 'Wild' Mick Brown, would be appearing at Ramblin' Man but we have now been informed by the band that this is not the case. The Dokken line-up at Ramblin' Man will be Don Dokken, Wild Mick Brown, Jon Levin and Chris McCarvill.

Occasionally, reliable sources are not totally reliable and we apologise for any disappointment you may have experienced. Having said that, this current line-up of Dokken is more than worthy of carrying the name and we look forward to welcoming them to England and enjoying what is sure to be a memorable performance by a superb band.
