Re: Next Announcement

Quite interested in going now they've booked Mercyful Fate, particularly seeing as how they seem to have dropped off the Wacken line up for 2021 (which I have a ticket for). There are at least three main stage bands each day I'm interested in seeing at BOA this year (Fri: Dark Tranquillity, Sacred R...

Re: Next Announcement

Usual laughable requests on Facebook. A few people have already said, without any hint of sarcasm, that they hope it's Maiden, Ozzy or Rammstein :rolleyes:

Re: Next Announcement

I can't see how this will work for metal bands. I've watched a few live streams from the likes of Frank Turner and Levellers singer Mark Chadwick, where they sit with an acoustic guitar in their front room, banter and sing songs. But a metal band...I can't see it. Even if they play from a stage or s...

Re: Next Announcement

I know, but it took them something like 25 years to get round to that sort of tour so I'm considering that to be an anomaly rather than anything regular. Wasn't one of the indoor Bloodstocks their first ever UK show? That took them about 15 years to get round to doing. Because both Blind Guardian a...

The last time Blind Guardian toured the UK they also played Nottingham, Manchester and Glasgow.

Re: Next Announcement

Metal Days even raised this in relation to possible refunds for tickets in the event of cancellation. Since it has now been cancelled I'm not sure if they're sticking to this or not, no announcements have been made, but obviously it went down like a lead balloon. 'Every ticket buyer accepted our T&a...

Re: Next Announcement

I'm no expert but I think some of the problems with insurance would be that they don't cover pandemics? It's one of those things which appear in the small print alongside 'acts of God' that people just presume will never actually happen.

Re: Next Announcement

Apparently there's an announcement about Wacken being called off later today. All the German media have announced no large gatherings until September at the earliest. I'm sure we'll follow suit.

Re: Next Announcement

I like Priest but I just can't get excited about seeing them without either KK or Tipton. It's as if the heart has been ripped out of them, like Maiden carrying on without Murray and Harris. Behemoth I can take or leave too. After a good start it's gone a bit pear shaped for me again, only Sacred Re...

Re: Rate The Bands - Results!

Yeah Motorhead were definitely the worst. Slayer were great both times and Ghost were fantastic.
