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.

Another terrible announcement. What a disappointment the 20th anniversary has proven to be!

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.

Re: Next Announcement

I imagine that Manowar are right out of contention already now ? They've never been in contention, their demands are way beyond what Bloodstock could afford or even want to bow down to. From Simon Hall's social media posts it's reasonable to presume the two have spoken before but got nowhere near a...

Re: Next Announcement

But you could put it the other way. Which band has songs that people know? I would probably know all of Metal Churches songs but wouldn't know one of Tesseract's. Would Rainbow headline? They've not released an album since the year dot. When was the last album anyone bought by the Scorpions? I have...
