This KIND OF makes sense...

Placebo announcing Monday. Likely for Soni. Have worked with Bowie in the past. Could sub with him headlining.
NIN 24/25 May
SONISPHERE 2014
Alt Fest 2014
Anathema September 18
Carcass September 19
Dragonforce September 20

If it was Bowie's 'last ever show' it would sell out before the tickets are put on sale, 4 realz. You could have no other bands and you'd have to wait in a field over the weekend just to see him, it'd still sell out.

Very true, I think people are dreaming and they will be the one's who will be the most upset when it turns out to be Blink 182 etc

Pretty much. David Bowie or AC/DC aren't going to happen, if they do, I'll eat my hat. Queen are the biggest band we can get and Im not too sure we will.

Pendulum played at the Download heavy metal festival last year, and Skrillex has been booked for this year's other big metal festival, Sonisphere.

Guns N Roses rumoured to be playing a gig in France in June now...along with the long rumoured Polish gig also in June. With Kiss looking less likely could it be GNR, QUEEN and Faith No More?

I may be completely wrong (so forgive me if i am) but i've read (can't remember if it was on here (don't really fancy trailing through all the pages) or elsewhere on the internet) that RUSH have said that they are going to be playing Sonisphere or High Voltage this year. Now according to the High Voltage facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HighVoltageFest?sk=wall (second story down)
someone has said that High Voltage is not happening this year. If this is true could we have a confimed band for Sonisphere?

Nah, they said they were in talks with some UK festivals, doesn't mean they will definitely be at either though, they were in talks with DOwnload too.

They aren't impossible, but there's nothing to suggest the talks came to anything postive as they've yet to reveal any touring plans :\ Think someone on here said Alex Lifeson said they wouldn't be back in the UK till 2013 too, so if not this year, maybe next :)

I posted a link from a Rush fansite that said the new album is complete, or nearly complete, and that they'd be touring in the summer.

Yeah but they've still yet to announce any actual details, it didn't say anything to suggest it'd be a Euro tour either, did it?

No. There was an article last year saying they wanted to do European festivals and they were on Scuzz, but that show means nothing now.

High Voltage isn't necessarily cancelled, I think it's being bought by someone else, hence the delay.
