few rumours going around. Announcement tomorrow
And then I'll go to that.
few rumours on efestivals. Apparently, not sold enough tickets. Efestivals twitter says a major festival to be cancelled tomorrow, and the efestival guy had some 'bad' sonisphere news.
More fuel to the fire...
i don't care how many great songs Queen had nor how great Kiss are, they're just not for me
2 reasons not to cancel Sonisphere:
1) it's right before my birthday
2) it's on my birthday
I hope they'll take these points into consideration prior to making any hasty decisions.
go to download
I only wanted to go for the Sunday anyway. The rest of the weekend is pretty week, notably Queen & Adam Lambert. In fact, I only really want to see Faith No More, Refused and Andrew WK. The rest of the festival can do one.
They belong on any festival.
forgot they were playing.
...how did they expect to sell tickets fast? Below KISS on the Friday is Within Temptation and Wolfmother. Playing before Queen on Saturday is Evanescence and The Darkness. This might have been a sell out in 2003.
Sunday is an incredible day so if I knew that was happening and I wasn't there, I'd be furious
(although i'm not a festival organiser/promoter). Maybe should have announced line up earlier?
well, it's being reported by the BBC and there a statement on Queens website now apparently: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/17536642
A band who already headlined Download when their reformation was actually something to get excited about/a ticket shifter, a band replacing one of the all-time great frontmen with an American Idol reject and Kiss, who don't really have the pull that the big metal acts like Metallica have. When the undercard is pretty weak as well then you're always going to be in real trouble.
