EoDM and Parkway Drive are the only two bands I'd make any sort of effort to see.

Seen RHCP at festivals and their own tour... it's not the greatest.

Spent £180 on 2000 Trees and ATG tickets on Friday, and after their first announcements I don't think I'll be selling either. Even if Sonisphere happened it'd need to be frakking massive to get me to buy tickets for it as well.

For me it would have to be later in the summer (at least the end of July). I just wouldn't have the funds if it was one payday after Download. I don't even know why we're bothering to discuss this though, it's not happening, no way :lol:

Oh are they?! Maybe I wouldn't watch them then. Lol. Drunken singalong would be good though.
It's February so I'm seriously doubting it now, think I was blinded by hope before. But where the hell is the confirmation team Soni?!?!

Im booked up to go to NOS Alive in Portugal in July so on the very unlikely event it goes ahead I'd hope for end of July/August.

Anyone else hitting up Euro events this Summer?

I still want to drive to Rock Werchter some time but that requires A: me having money and B: me knowing other people who want to go, neither of which seem particularly likely right now. Maybe next year.

Me and my partner are off on holiday at the start of July, booked it last week, so if Soni is on; hoping it's end of July/ August.

If not thinking about Boomtown, Y Not or BOA.

In other news, Rockavaria's long awaited announcement is Suicidal Tendencies, Gutterdamerung, Prime Circle, Serum 114, The Shrine, Inter Arma.

Needless to say the people who have tickets for Rockavaria are frakking pissed off. Also rumours that Rock im Revier might be down-scaled or cancelled.

They are shockingly dull live.

Saw them at Leeds Festival one time and they were shite. Though I'm not a big fan anyway. Some of my friends saw am at a stadium show and said they were much better.

Is it my imagination or has the Soni UK website just changed CMS? If so, would this indicate it's not dead, and work is being done on it?

I think we would need more than that to suggest anything at this stage of the game.

Kili Live are called something else now - MyTickets or something? So any changes are probably to reflect that.

Anyone feel like asking Team Soni on Twitter? I wouldn't expect a reply but no harm asking I guess?

I am just so disappointed that they think it's ok to treat their fans like this. It actually disgusts me a bit. I hope they're reading this because that would be at least having some interest in the constantly decreasing circle of fans they have left.

i agree. if they don't want to make any official statements at this point then thats fine and we have to appreciate that and hope that they would tell us when they possibly can (which i feel is slightly late in the day now but I still haven't given up completely yet - yes, I'm a mug) but i don't agree with the blatantly ignoring people. if you have twenty people on the Facebook page asking exactly the same question, ten times a day then fine, they can't respond to every single one. buy even if they acknowledged one. Us fans are pretty good, especially on social media and if someone asks something already answered then someone would link to the reply at least. Same on twitter. I know i've said it before but the cryptic posts and replies that don't actually say anything drive me crazy lol

Apparently The weekend of the 9-10 July has been booked up by a country fair. Ramblin Man is the 22-2
4.

Realistically that only leaves the 15-17 July or 26-28 July or August as viable slots for Soni.

The Soni UK site is still a Wordpress site but it now looks like it has been broken, abandoned or is having content shifted around.
Bit of a mess.

Can't get on any of the Euro Sonisphere site's. My Virus scanner doesn't like them.
