DNA Entertainment Networks have finally confirmed the headliners for Rock In India 2010. Sure, we told you some time ago that American boy band Backstreet Boys were lined up as top billing for the annual event that in the past has seen acts like Iron Maiden (2009) and Megadeth (2008) perform. But you weren’t convinced. Who headlines an event called “Rock In India” with a boy band right? Speculation was rife. Was this a joke campaign? Could the real headliners be Judas Priest and Dream Theater? Bon Jovi even? That ever changing Wikipedia page didn’t help either.

To put all doubts to rest, the Rock In India 2010 headliners are in fact the Backstreet Boys and Richard Marx, as announced on the event’s official website. Here’s the entire list of acts performing

New Delhi – Saturday, Feb 20
Backstreet Boys
Richard Marx
Prime Circle
Jayce Lewis
Swarathma
Indigo Children

Bangalore – Monday, Feb 22
Backstreet Boys
Richard Marx
Prime Circle
Jayce Lewis
Swarathma

UPDATE: Kolkata alternative act Five Little Indians have been added to the Bangalore lineup and the date for the Bangalore gig has been changed to Sunday, Feb 21.

That’s right, as we sneaked into our last post about the event, homeboys Indigo Children and Swarathma will open for these pop giants. Ticket details for the gigs have also emerged.

So there folks. We’re going to try our darndest to be at one of these gigs. Eternal kvlt beckons. What say you?
