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: 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: coronavirus and its effects on the economy of Metal

It is unlikely that most accommodation or transportation companies are going to be flexible enough to let people move their hotel bookings etc. around to suit re-arranged dates either

Re: Grand Magus UK & IRE Tour 2020

The band have said they're finishing the UK portion of the tour but aren't carrying on into the rest of Europe.

Re: coronavirus and its effects on the economy of Metal

Well one things for sure, when/if things return to normal there will be a hell of a lot of gigs to go to :lol: The worry I have is that it won't be possible to reschedule all of the tours that will inevitably be cancelled due to a lack of available venues, and those that do manage to get squeezed i...

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...

Re: Primal Fear + Freedom Call - London - 25/09/20

Got my ticket and hotel for this :)

Never seen Primal Fear before, but have been a casual fan for a good number of years, and Freedom Call were great fun the time I saw them in 2018 so this should be a top night!

Re: Whitesnake, Foreigner & Europe UK Tour 2020

Whitesnake are one of my favourite bands of all time so I have been waiting for this announcement! Ticket for the O2 Arena booked :) All three bands will be great despite the fact Foreigner have been playing the same songs over and over since Kelly Hansen took over as vocalist.

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: Grand Magus UK & IRE Tour 2020

I agree about their set lengths. I wouldn't travel that far to see them, but as they're playing in Bristol and the ticket was cheap I thought it was worth a little trip up there.
