Hmm just had a look on their Facebook, they've posted a status reassuring everyone they will be playing Bloodstock "either as free men or wanted men" :eyes: Tbh I'm curious about how Bloodstock will tackle the firearms aspect, particularly with the increased security. Is it real or fake firearms they use on stage?

Edit: Just did a quick google and found that the guns are fake, wonder if they'll be allowed them...

They do know it's up to boarder controls not Bloodstock as to whether their band and their props are allowed into the country right? I get it's macho posturing but wow :lol:

Also, I'm no legal expert, but I've watched enough movies to know that if you're a wanted man, you'll want to lay low for awhile, turning up onstage as advertised at a festival isn't what I would have in mind :P

He won't be able to fly out the US let alone get it the airport here. They'll either have to play without him or cancel, again.

I'd be interested to know if BOA are in talks with anyone to replace King810 should they be unable to attend. There's nothing on the Sophie that'd suit jumping up to fill the slot (like they did with Avatar when Graveyard's flight was delayed). Bump up Havok, Winterfylleth & Fallujah then have Florence Black open? Could just put Xentrix in the King slot and have 4 thrash bands in a row...

I'd guess they would make an exception in terms of bands being big enough for the main stage as this late in the day it would just be whoever can actually do it on such short notice

Which member is it? If it's the singer or guitarist that's pretty much a guaranteed cancellation, bass player or drummer there is a chance of replacing them.

Or just put Battle Beast in King's slot and let Wind Rose headline the Thursday, gives the main stage more variety, and BB are way too big to be playing the Thursday night anyway.

Wouldn't that mean they get a shorter set and piss off people coming on Thursday mainly to see them?

It is their guitarist. IIRC they only have one guitar too.

Pull a band from Friday and give Blind Guardian a 2h set.

Honestly I think the gimmick of being big hard men with their guns is what makes them popular, I could see their audiences vanishing if they stopped carrying.
