I like Howard but Jamey is so shit I'll probably still give the whole thing a miss.

The unannounced guest is Howard Jones for the third time :P

Good thing there are a few dates before the BOA show, I'll look up the set and see if it's worth my time, if Howard only appears on like 1 song then that'll be a big kick in the teeth, like others have said, guy has a great voice.

The unannounced guest is Vinnie Paul.

Actually it probably was supposed to be.

On that (depressing) note, you think there will be some kind of tribute thing for him this year?

Doubt there'll be anything official but wouldn't surprise me if a few bands made reference to him.

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.

Bloodstock just tweeted the times are "coming very soon" and plugged the app so expecting them on there first again.

Wonder if they'll actually bother to say what films they are showing at 10.30 :lol:
