Hopefully. It'd be amazing to see everyone lose their shit if they announced Priest at the end of Twisted Sister

Pretty sure it won't be Priest, Vicky was still urging people to hassle their twitter feed a week or two back, she wouldn't be bothering with that if they were already booked!

Unless that was a deliberate obfuscation. Kinda surprised Priest haven't headlined yet, actually.

(although I doubt it) unless Priest were on the fence about playing as they were unsure if DL or BOA were more appropriate for them and the twitter messages were a way of nudging Priest over the line for BOA.

Hanowar are going to return to English shores and headline the Saturday and Sunday, slaying all those who worship false metal. Alice Cooper can headline Friday.

For the glory of true metal!

Haha same, weak friday but strong sat and sun, can see it being something like this.
My predictions are - ffdp - Nightwish - Judas Priest (want to say them but like every year not sure if we'll ever get JP) can definately see Ghost either subbing or maybe headline the friday. Inflames too
