Band: Ghost on stage at Rocklahoma 2018

One of the best shows at Rocklahoma 2018 was by the band Ghost. We’ve been fans for a long time, but this was our first chance to see them perform live. They have a cool and unique style, mixing theater and heavy metal. Their music is catchy and kind of spooky. Finally getting to see them live was really exciting and made us like them even more.

Beyond the music, Rocklahoma offers various additional activities to enhance the overall experience. Attendees can enjoy a captivating car show, participate in a thrilling tattoo contest, and witness an awe-inspiring fireworks display. It’s a fantastic opportunity for rock enthusiasts to connect with fellow fans, immerse themselves in the music, and create lasting memories of a good time.
