Rumours

Postby Andy (Dr Sin) » Thu Aug 21, 2014 8:06 am

Surprised no ones started the rumours thread yet.

Can't help buy notice the amount of attention Edguy are getting on Facebook from Simon Hall. Could be me reading too much into it, but I hope could be a sign...?

It's also the next decent sized gig at Queens Hall in Nuneaton, Simon's local stomping ground. :yes:

It could mean anything of course, but I would hope for something a little more inspired.

What constitutes a rumour?


Virtually everyone I speak too or see posts from online seems to be of the thought process that Judas Priest may headline next year.


It is literally just people though who heard it from people, who heard it from people whom in turn heard it from people etc etc.

Has anyone ever noticed whether the videos played constantly on the big screens have ANY correlation to bands booked the following year ?

I remember Doro being played heavily one year but can't remember if that preceded the year she played ?

Edguy's dreadful tiger video (although I love the band) was played on repeat this time around, but they have played so often (especially if you include Avantasia in 2013) that another booking will be a repeat too many in my eyes.

It starts off with the normal 'They linked this' or 'This person let it slip that...', 'Hey look, this band have reformed'.

You get the idea, just keep it as sensible as possible & have some fun. It always goes off track though. :lol: :P

I would imagine someone has tried to keep track, & by using that logic you've got Edguy, Sonata Arctica for starters & whoever that silly thrash band was with the crap video. (I lost interest after Friday if I'm honest)

Ah yes that's them. Gama Bomb, Municipal Waste wannabes. Yeah they're as good a bet as any I suppose.

Decent, or even half decent Thrash (was only the video that was crap) usually goes down well early in the day. Bring 'em in I say, as they haven't played before.

Well they usually play Tankard quite a lot.........

I think it's just because the festival is sponsored by Nuclear Blast.

Fair enough. Dear festival organisers/bookers, Nuclear Blast have more bands on their books than the repeat 5-6 we seem to get every other year. Please take an extensive look at the bands and give us some off the forum wish list .....
