The problem with solo/side projects is that there's no correlation between size of main band and the draw of the singer, particularly if it's a one off with no history - Vince Neil couldn't fill JBs in Dudley when Crue were in arenas, I saw Duff McCagen play to 50 people with a side band - although Bruce has hardly done a jazz rock odyssey or gone Prog, his solo albums each sold less than the previous one, even when he was back in Maiden - put him on and there will be eejits telling for Run To The Hills

I don't think JP will deter them from announcing bands at the fest; they would have to announce them at some point anyway and making good announcements at the fest encourages people to buy their tickets for next year before they leave I guess. Maybe they will hold off on the announcement until Saturday/Sunday night though if it is someone smaller like Sabaton.

Improving the Jager stage is a good shout and would be very much welcomed. Although I seem to recall Vicky and Adam saying that it could be something that would make the fans really happy in the podcast...

I don't know, if you advertise or announce it like "we got you JP, now we've gotten you the voice of Maiden" I imagine that'll go down well; especially if you got him as a sub. I'm just throwing my 2 cents in here though, as much as I'd like it to happen I can't see it happening.

I can see a new lineup of gym gear and the return of the an expanded strongman comp being announced at BOA for next year......

Sabaton or Immortal being announced at the festival. With Five Finger Death Punch and Slayer being announced later in the year.

No way will they expand, they haven't even sold out this year yet with Priest headlining, despite telling everyone for the last 2 months they're close to selling out.

I've a feeling that quite a few people are waiting for day tickets to go on sale. I know some who are just popping down on the Friday and then sodding off as the rest is mostly shite.


You'll probably also get some wanting to come to Download Sunday and not be interested in the rest.

After the hellfest announcement I'm think Manowar will headline and be announced at this years' festival. Slayer wouldn't surprise me either

So Hellfest have just announced Manowar, Slayer and Carcass for next year! :o I guess that means Slayer and Carcass are possibilities for BOA but how about Manowar? Too expensive?

Let’s hope Slayer do Download as a farewell instead.

And here come all the tedious Manowar rumours the for next 6 months or so
