I just thought of another! Borknagar! However, they play so infrequently (usually london, natch) I'm not surprised I haven't seen them.

Good news then, playing HRH Vikings in Sheffield in November(?)

Without just spamming out Thrash bands I'll stick to the bigger names :lol:

Aerosmith and AC/DC spring to mind; ticking Aerosmith off the list in July but would jump at the chance to see AC/DC as well. Know full well both will be a shadow of their former selves but to see all those classics by the bands that made them is something I want to see.

That is good news! I can't tell if their on Sat or (harder to attend) Sunday though.

I would watch both of the above, but they are actually quite down the pecking order of my favourite 70's bands.

Ah, now that appears to be the catch, I think they're the Sunday headliner
