I figure we're not going to hear about next year either, so might as well plan for a possible 10 year anniversary.

So, what do you think the chances of us all being in a field at Knebworth in two years time are?

Other than Iron Maiden and/or Metallica headlining (as is tradition), who else ?

I wish they would just say if it was dead in the water and they weren't going to attempt anymore.

I'd say the chances of us being at Knebworth in 2 years time are slimmer than the chances of us being in the same field next year.

At the risk of sounding like Mr Bear, if BMTH really did get bumped for Aerosmith on the basis it was a farewell tour, that's 1 DL headliner already in the bag for 2018. My guess is Metallica will be there as well (as LN kept their dates to this side of Xmas so they could claim a DL exclusive in 2018).

That's one slot left at DL with Slipknot, Linkin Park, Avenged, Judas Priest, Def Leppard all likely to be touring. That's in addition to Maiden, who have been known to finish a touring cycle which included UK dates at Soni the following year, and BSC who will be next to step up to headliner.

I could quite easily see:
DL- Metallica, LP, BMTH
Soni - Maiden, Slipknot, Leppard (or BSC)

Sure others will be in the mix too - Ozzy's already looking at releasing solo stuff next year isn't he?
