Yup! I've asked for a refund as it just won't be practical - but I might go to Nottingham instead as it kinda ties in with some other plans I already have.

Re: Helloween 2020

I couldn't make either of the original dates, but I can do now. Small silver linings and all that...

Re: Cheap Trick UK shows 2021

Bristol for me! Only a casual fan really, but saw them a couple of years ago with Def Leppard and thought they were great fun live

Orphaned Land, London, 22/11/2020

Just the one UK show as part of a larger European tour, at the Dome on Sunday 22nd November 2020.

Whether this actually goes ahead remains to be seen, but I will certainly be picking up a ticket. They were fantastic at BOA in 2018!

Re: Incoming In Flames May UK dates

ULU a tiny venue for them, saw behemoth there about 12 years ago These are all pretty tiny venues for them. Last year they packed out the SWX in Bristol and are returning to the Thekla which is considerably smaller. They are doing quite a few UK shows though, so maybe they're doing more smaller sho...

Conception

The recently reformed prog metal act are yet to schedule any UK shows, so Bloodstock might be a good shout? A European headline tour is planned for Spring 2020, so I assume they'll do a few festivals afterwards.

Re: BOA 2019: Rate the bands

Little concerned with Vicky`s Twitter is going somewhat overboard that Parkway Drive`s 2019 Bloodstock set was the best show ever?? It's getting a bit tedious isn't it? Barely any of the other bands have had a look in. I didn't watch PWD, but the general consensuses seems to be that they were not m...

Re: BOA 2019: Rate the bands

Queensryche - so glad they finally got to play and really enjoyed them. I did find the set list a little odd (with so many old tracks) and there wasn't a lot of movement from the band, but La Torre's vocals were incredible. They were my joint set of the weekend, so its sad to see that so many other...

Re: BOA 2019: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

Actually I should add smoking in general to my 'bads'. It just seems that there is nowhere you can stand anywhere in the main festival site without someone next to you immediately lighting up a cigarette. This obviously isn't too bad outside (although I still find it annoying), but in the tents it c...

Re: BOA 2019: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

Good: - All of the bands that I was looking forward to were at least 'good', with many being much better than that. My top three sets were from Queensryche, Dee Snider, and Sabaton - Discovering a few new bands which I shall check out further in due course - The fact it took me about 10 minutes from...

Blind River 6/10 - Decent heavy blues rock Rotting Christ 4/10 - Enjoyed them somewhat last time they played, but did nothing for me at all on Thursday Incite 2/10 - Bellowing with the worst guitar tone I heard all weekend Control the Storm 6/10 - Thought all the pyro was a bit much for so early on ...

Re: Dimmu Borgir cancel

That's a shame, was interested to see their set.

I wonder what they'll do about that slot? I personally wouldn't mind Queensr├┐che and Dee Snider both playing for slightly longer to make up for Dimmu not being there.

Fifth Angel

Recently reformed traditional US prog/power metal band who have just released their first album since 1989. Not sure if they plan to tour the album or not, but I like to see them at Bloodstock! Possibly either a very early Main Stage slot of a decent-ish Sophie Stage slot. https://www.youtube.com/wa...
