Re: Sonisphere 2017

After all the talk of GnR, Metallica, etc, if Download end up with Linkin Park, Blink and SOAD that's hilarious. Also, if Kili can't put together Sonisphere with 3 headliners that outdo that effort there's something seriously wrong! :) that announcement makes SOAD, LP and blink look pretty stellar ...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

looks like it wont be greenday for download or sonisphere, as they at BST

still think the best chance sonisphere has for coming back next year is to book maiden , i know lots of folks will say what they will say if they do book them but i would rather that than no festival

lets just hope

Re: Sonisphere 2016

i take it guns and roses still haven't been announced for any UK fests or have i missed something i'm sure if sonisphere was a dead duck they would have said , the fact they haven't and the silence suggests to me they are still working on it , last year they said when it was over with the last irons...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

if those dates are correct and sonisphere has AC/DC do they need to announce before christmas , after all they only have 60,000 tickets to sell and if they had GnR as well then better hit the phones the day the tickets go on sale !!!! i'm more optimistic than i was yesterday also the mid july dates ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

well that's encouraging however if i were AC/DC i would do my own show at knebworth if offered could always do both ( waits for walnut ...........)

if this was the case would explain why we have had to wait with silence from kili

crossing fingers in case but its a wait and see moment i think

Re: Sonisphere 2016

i might be mistaken but last year i'm sure they were saying we are working on it before confirming just before Christmas that it wasn't going ahead maybe they are staying silent because of the backlash last year , if they are not going ahead they would have said or will say as soon as they know its ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

I think we may not have a festival to go to next year which pains me. the optimist in me thinks we could still be on IF and its a really large IF they have nabbed GnR and Muse, those two would mean it would sell out all 60,000 tickets even if it was announced in January but i can't see it , and the ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Got a feeling we're going to get Def Leppard, RHCP and Linkin Park though. that would suit me :D shame about SOAD though but if they play soni with maiden in 2017 then that's shaping up to be a decent weekend already :lol: on a different note.......... stone roses playing the etihad stadium 17th/18...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

i would wait and see what happens with sonisphere first , its not like we are surprised that maiden are there , if anything it might mean we get them in 2017 !! which would be good if the festival could go ahead this year without them and then again next year to end the world tour for book of souls ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

As for G'n'R if they do festivals first they're are going to do a Motley Crue, people will turn up and see them this year, remember how shot Axl is as a singer and not bother seeing them again, a "once is enough" kind of situation. No doubt sell like crazy but it'll damage their reputatio...

I would have thought that if they get the opportunity to announce before download and have a ticket shifting headliner they will do. its quite tantalizing waiting to see who we might get. you have probably all already seen this from January, interesting quote from Mrs Lytton Cobbold also some nice p...
