Hard Rock Hell is pleased to announce the final line up for this year's 2012 Edition, with more last minute ch ch ch Changes than David Bowie as Ace Frehley cancels for the second year running - this time failing to produce a doctor's certificate, or to give a proper reason.
His slot on the bill has been warmly handed to Californian rockers Ugly Kid Joe who jumped at the opportunity and for HRH to make for an even more exhilarating line up.
