Perhaps they'll go full Sonisphere and have a book of condolence and a site-wide 2 minutes silence.

There was some mention of some kind of tribute to Vinnie in the last Q&A session.

Last year it sold out on 30th July and capacity's been upped to 18K this year so reasonable to expect it to take a little longer.


Last year they weren't spamming on every social media page every week to say they're close to selling out. They've been doing it for at least 3 months.

I bet they thought Priest alone would have sold the extra few thousand tickets, unfortunately for them the majority of the lineup is terrible this year.

Looks like it may not sell out this year. Noticed on the last Q&A session tickets selling out was not mentioned like the previous ones. Not that I am complaining, but seems like ticket sales may have slowed down towards the end.

I could be entirely wrong and it will be announced today it has sold out, which would not surprise me with my history of predictions.

Said on the last Facebook Live around lunchtime, but they'll probably go for as late as they think they can get away with
