What a lineup! Bring your earplugs. Beer, wine and mixed drinks will be sold to those with a valid ID. Others playing you may like are Pig Destroyer, Body Count, Demon Hunter, and Whores. Surprisingly, looks like almost all bands are all-male, even the Whores.

July 14–16
Toyota Park

"Chicago Open Air 2017 Lineup
KISS: Since 1973, Paul “Starchild” Stanley and Gene “The Demon” Simmons have rock and rolled all nite, partied every day, and maybe taken the occasional cat nap as leaders of the fire-breathing, Rock of Roll Hall of Fame–inducted KISS. Expect costumes, pyrotechnics, extreme tongue gestures, feats of anti-gravity, and to “Shout It Out Loud” as you take up residency in “Detroit Rock City.”

Rob Zombie: The former lead singer of industrial pioneers White Zombie struck out on his own with several landmark horror-inspired albums, including Hellbilly Deluxe. His love of the macabre extends not only to the shock-rock props, set-pieces, and projections of his live show, but to a successful film career as well—he’s directed a Halloween remake, The Devil’s Rejects, and 31.

Anthrax: Fueled by the punishing guitar of raccoon-bearded band-leader Scott Ian, these thrashers have been running strong since 1981 with breakneck classics such as “Caught in a Mosh” and “Antisocial.”

Korn: Perhaps the most successful nü-metal band of all time, with two Grammy awards and over 35 million albums sold, Jonathan Davis and company treat audiences to classic favorites and new hits.

Godsmack: These post-grunge rockers shroud hits such as “Keep Away,” “Awake,” and “Voodoo” in angst and occult imagery.

Seether: This alternative-metal act from South Africa hit the U.S. airwaves in 2002 with “Fine Again” and hasn’t stopped since, churning out angst-filled #1 hits including “Broken,” “Remedy,” and “Fake It.”

Ozzy Osbourne: A man who needs no introduction. Osbourne, the former Black Sabbath frontman, is the progenitor of heavy-metal living and the archetype for frontman antics. The king of the perfect heavy-metal pitch (none of that histrionic screaming that the younger kids do) found an unlikely early influence in soul singers Sam and Dave.

Slayer: Named No. 6 on MTV’s list of Top 100 Metal Bands of all time, Slayer’s iconic vicious speed metal sound is at its best on albums like Reign of Blood and Christ Illusion, which was banned in certain countries."
