Re: Next Announcement

What makes it odder is seeing other types of bands from the US play around here, to about 100 if they're lucky - LA Guns, Enuff Z Nuff, Bang Tango, Love Hate - all play in places like Evesham, Buckley, Hull, year in year out... I'm sure I've seen Jizzy Pearl sing for 3 of those 4 bands :lol: In ter...

Re: Next Announcement

I managed to have a good chat with Brainstorm when I saw them in Paris last year and specifically asked them about them never playing the UK.... not even a one off London show. They bluntly replied that no one would take on the gig. Lack of interest from promoters despite the band trying. It’s worr...

Re: Next Announcement

Don't blame them really. Don't know what Rock City was like but the Manchester Blind Guardian show at the Ritz wasn't particularly busy. They didn't even open the upstairs section which I think is the only gig I've been to there where that's happened. That happens quite often - I've been in there w...

Re: Next Announcement

Its a mixed bag but some, not just Power Metal but other, lets say more trad metal bands do alright that don't seem to get any festival recognition: Visigoth and Bewitcher got a good crowd in Manchester, much more than I was expecting. Fates Warning had a decent turnout at the Underworld. Threshold ...

Re: Next Announcement

I'm hearing rumours about Poison being a possibility. Anyone heard these rumours? What would you all say to some glam metal/rock? Can't really see it - they've not played here since early 90s and I think they've only done 1 gig in Europe in that time. They're on the Leppard/Crue stadium tour which ...

Re: Next Announcement

Still don't think MF are big enough for a headliner - if they can't re-book Behemoth (who may have already been booked for 2021 festivals) I reckon it'll be Trivium..

Re: The Meaning of Metal

Somewhat fallen off the radar, but Atomic Rooster had hit singles and were on ToTP in 70/71 (Tomorrow Night #12, Devils Answer #4).

Easy to forget Grand Funk aswell - no hit singles or albums but filled the Albert Hall and headlined Hyde Park - so Sin Is A Good Man's Brother should be in there.

Re: Next Announcement

The Ramblin Man fest put some comments up about Download and Glastonbury - big fests have infrastructure things like Motorway junction closures/diversions to sort months in advance with organisations that may be on shut down, Glastonbury would have started to build its wall by now, can't do it with ...

Re: Next Announcement

Video just posted on Instagram that an announcement of some kind is imminent... As for cancellation vs postponement - seems like in the uk you can get a refund if an eve t is postponed. Not sure about the mainland, but HRH is based on Ibiza. I think you also pay them direct and not through a third p...

Re: Next Announcement

[code][/code] Sadly I can't see BOA going ahead this year. It all really depends on the spread of the virus and if any of the headliners are able to come. I thinks personally once we hit may and things are peaking they may have to make the difficult decision to cancel. I'm 50/50 in terms of optimism...

Re: Coronavirus

Since the counting began, the new coronovirus has increased the normal number of deaths (1,643 per day) in the UK by about 0.9%, and that's assuming it was the main factor in all the deaths attributed to it. The increase for Italy is, very approximately, 12.8%. One of the big issues in Italy is tha...
