Alestorm

Postby PurpleDemon » Tue Mar 06, 2012 1:12 am




So, the big question. As psyched as I am that these guys are back, can they cut it on Saturn? I frakking hope so, but Bohemia just worked last year, I was expecting them to be back there, if at all.

Must admit I am surprised to see them on Saturn but then the tent was packed last year. The tour they have just done was also pretty much sold out, although it must be said most of them were smallish venues. Must say though I am really excited to be seeing them for the third time, I love these guys and really hope they can pull off the big stage :)

So Gojira then Alestorm opening Saturday main stages...

I'm not quite sure how Pirate Metal will go down at midday, but I'm pretty sure I'll be there to see it.

They were fabulous in Bohemia last year so hopefully then can pull it off on the main stage too.



Upcoming Gigs:
Protest the Hero
Meshuggah/Animals as Leaders

Well if they have the same amount of bands on each stage, surely Saturn would have to go first?

I know Richard Cheese was first last year and he was on Saturn.

I'm pretty sure it was Sylosis, Richard Cheese, Architects.

either way, most if not all of the time, there's one more band on Apollo, so that starts first
