Blink-182, Cheap Trick join 2011 Voodoo lineup

Posted By Google on Wed, Jun 29, 2011 at 1:27 PM

In the seemingly infinite saga for the full 2011 Voodoo Experience lineup, a few additions were made over the weekend and this week — legendary Kinks frontman Ray Davies, video artist Mike Relm, New Orleans revelers Morning 40 Federation, and '70s power-pop stars Cheap Trick, known for the killer live album At Budokan, mega-hits "I Want You to Want Me" and "Surrender" (and their cover of Big Star's "In the Street" for That '70s Show).

Announced today: pop-punk icons Blink-182, who recently reunited and are playing only one festival gig this year. The trio (Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker) slumped around following their 2003 self-titled fifth album, with various solo projects and spin-offs — making nowhere a dent compared to the success of the goofball SoCal pop-punk of Blink-182.

Also added: Voodoo announced Dr. John & the Lower 911, recent Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee and eternally treasured, vocabularity possessified New Orleans demi god.

Follow Voodoo on Facebook and Twitter for updates — tons of fans are none too happy about the lineup-rollout process.
