Thanks for the tip. I'll send it to her. :D

But it's OK to have it on the official forum? :?

It was posted in the Bloodstock Metal Forum 666 which Vicky is an active member in so she's probably seen it already :eyes:

There was a time when the organisers paid attention to what was said on the forum. I suspect those days are long gone and none of the key players read anything here any more.

Too big for the Thursday compared to the typical bands, maybe even as a Sophie headliner on the other days - Dee has headlined Steelhouse as a solo act which brings in around 6000 people

Is it wrong my thought was he was one of my bingo picks rather than liking him as an act? :lol:

Unless they play Wheels through Denim in full (and they've already done Denim in full) or a by request set I'm struggling to think what they could do special

I think it was Daath, I have a copy of their second album that has a tour date sticker on the front listing Bloodstock. They were never actually announced for the festival and it didn't happen.

Opeth have quite a few Euro tour dates in late spring/early summer, might make them more likely for DL instead?
