    Nice, hopefully some shows to the EU mainland will be added as well :)

    Are you going to visit any shows in 2012 gnoff, outside Sweden ones I mean?

    Out of the ones mentioned so far, probably not.
    Hammerfest would be the only possible one for me.
    Wacken I don't go to anymore, too darn big

    Depends on what other shows and festivals they announce if I'll travel to see them next year.


    As for non-AA I'm going on the next 70k cruise from Miami to Grand Caymans end of January.

    not yet :wave:


    I hope for more Swedish dates too, but I think they will try and focus a lot on festivals this year.

    Perhaps they'll turn up for Copenhell?

    Hope they'll be at Copenhell because I'm going there nonetheless :)

    So far the program looks sweet with Slayer and Korpiklaani & many more of course. Going to be great

    As of the festival website, Amon Amarth will play Getaway

    http://www.getawayrock.se/festival/nyheter/tunga-namn-till-getaway-rock-festival/

    They lie on their page though:
    Ghost och Amon Amarth gör sina enda festivalspelningar i Sverige 2012 på Getaway Rock Festival.
    Translates sort of into "Ghost and Amon Amarth play their only festival gig in Sweden 2012 at Getaway Rock Festival"

    AA is signed for House of Metal in Umeå in March.

    I also hope hope hope they will play Metaltown and Sweden Rock Festival, still hope they will sign up for Rockstad Falun too.


    My one BIG issue with this annoucnement is that I've thought about going to Getaway before, but had decided not to this year since Manowar is playing and I do not ever want to support anything that has with Manowar to do.
    Might have to break my own rules on this one though, since I want to see AA more than once in 2012.

    well Gnoff, things did not pan out as planned this time around :( so that leaves the above noted SA dates as the only chance for me at least to see AA in 2012, Chile and Uruguay are places I'd like to go to one of those times

    Only dates that would work for me are the two last ones in Mexico over Easter.

    Actually not too expensive if I look at booking a return trip to Guadalajara, but might be a bit far to travel though :p

    Mexico City sounds good, let me look into airfare when I get back into town, it's a weekend so that would work for me

    speaking of Mexico I'll be right across the river from there at Big Bend NP for the next few days :)
