To be fair if they can afford Alice Cooper or Slayer i'm pretty sure they're ok on Rob Zombie.

I wouldn't think Slayer are all that expensive if you consider the size of venues they normally play, couple that with the statements Lombardo made about Slayer undervaluing themselves to agents.

I agree with Cooper though, but then you have to consider he was booked alongside a non-exclusive machine head and behemoth, rob zombie this year would be booked alongside an exclusive within tempation and (i dream) judas priest :p

Is Rob Zombie that big a deal now? Not heard anything from him for years as he seems to be spending most of his time ruining old horror movie franchises.

If they weren't that expensive i'd imagine the festival would have had them sooner. As for the issue's Lombardo stated on his quitting the band about $4m going to the agents and so on for any fiscal year...well that money isn't coming from nowhere and with sales quite low in todays climate you can be pretty sure a good chunk of that is tour profits.

When you consider the venue costs, support band costs, roadcrew cost for a full crew featuring an FOH team, a monitor guy, a tour manager, lighting guy(s), merch people, drum tech, guitar tech(s), general roadies and then drivers, tour bus hire, flights/ferries, security...and then consider the label and management companies both take a cut as do accountants and then finally the band members themselves (after which Bostaph gets paid a salary) if they're still making over $4.4m as Lombardo states they're either playing virtually every night of the year or they're extremely well paid for the shows they do. Even with merch sales making up a chunk of it you're likely not making that kind of money in 12 months unless you're touring for a decent amount.

Regardless of Machine Head being non-exclusive Machine Head are surely not a cheap band to book although i suspect Behemoth probably were. And to be honest i doubt Within Temptation are an expensive band to book baring in mind that beyond that one Arena date they've played they're mostly playing to similar sized crowds as the ones that Behemoth are on their current tour...although Priest are surely expensive and likely more so since they've cut back on dates.

There's no easy way to answer it, in the past 5 years he's done 2 festival appearances and 2 tours. This year he was just under headliner at Download...to a very weak line up. The year before he was headlining the second stage. His first UK tour in the last 5 years was purely academies. But his second was a joint arena tour...however Marilyn Manson was closing the shows every night.

I never see much of his merchandise at shows and i don't know anyone who has bought anything he's released in over a decade now...but then i only know a bunch of people in one area of the country.



Giving it a bit of thought since my last post i'm convinced Zombie is not cheap to book but at the same time i don't think that he's too expensive for bloodstock by any means even with Priest on the bill.

Reckon they'd both be expensive - unlike the 'big in Europe' metal bands, both can tour the outdoor sheds in America during the summer, so any Euro fest would have to compete with that - presumably no-one stumped up enough for Priest's British Steel anniversary shows to come over here. They're popularity as a live draw has also shrunk - the first chance to see them back with Halford had two sold out nights at the Apollo, last tour just one.

Not fussed about any of them, but it is a good mix of music. I wonder where they are going to sit on the bill?

That'll do me

Cannibal Corpse are unadulterated shite, but Ihsahn is great and so long as Sepultura throw in a few classics they'll be good too

Not fucking Sepultura. Biggest waste of a slot imaginable. Cannibal Corpse and Ihsahn are not bad though.

But they are three recent repeats. :rolleyes:

I'd watch 2 out of the 3 but still nothing to get me to say that I MUST get a ticket.

As if we needed further proof that the organizers have heard of even less bands than most of the people who post on their Facebook page,we get this-three bands who seem to be over here all the time and all of which have played the fest before in the last 5 years.Nothing particularly wrong with the actual quality of the bands themselves but for God's sake the bookers really need a bit more imagination.
