Not really worth £200 plus travel but the chance to finally see the Offspring, TWISTED SISTER, Sepultura and AEROSMITH is one heck of a draw
Secret act then. My thoughts are it being Machine Head and their late year tour being announced the same weekend. Especially with their small tour thing.

Yeah, I think it has to be a UK band. People on the DLF are saying Lamb of God, which seems nuts to me. That band is flat broke since Randy Blythe got caught assassinating Polish bannermen - no way would they schlep over to the UK for a secret set. They're going to be grabbing every big payday they can. They have to. Machine Head is an outside possibility, but the club tour is probably going to cost them a fair wedge. Unlikely that they'd compound that by flying over specially for what's surely going to be a reduced-fee type deal. I think BFMV is a safe bet.
