    Is it too early to begin speculating on the 2019 roster?

    Call me a sucker, but did you guys catch the two tweets posted tonight by Glenn?

    One had to do with Ayreon Universe. The other had to do with the 2019 draft roster.

    Can I make the leap of paired association and say we might have Ayreon at the 2019 festival? Ayreon has never played a ProgPower festival, and I know a lot of people would love to see them.

    Just saying..

    It's never too early to speculate. However, I still think Ayreon has no chance until Glenn wins the lottery....

    Had no idea they were so pricey. Oh well.

    Then I'll add another one. Sunburst. Didn't make it last year because of visa issues. Could 2019 be their year??

    Ayreon = 0% chance.

    Personally, I would like Black Fate over Sunburst just because of the bigger catalog. Maybe have Black Fate play the festival and have Sunburst play a show similar to what Lords of Black did Saturday morning last year since there is a decent amount of overlap roster wise for those bands

    I'd definitely dig Caligula's Horse, Hemina or Hibria.

    Some bands that I hope are on the 2019 roster: Demons & Wizards, Riot V, Rebellion, Witherfall and also Overkill or Savage Messiah make a return appearance :headbang:

    Is it too soon to bring back Jon Oliva's Pain (or Savatage)?

    Jon Schafer has been vocal about going into the studio for a new Demons and Wizards album. Thus, if he wants to do some live shows with this project, PPUSA would make sense.

    I'd also love to see Accept, as I've never seen them live. I caught Dirkschneider last year, and it would be great to see the current lineup of Accept as well.

    I was hoping that the Helloween Pumpkins United lineup would be a special treat for this year, but perhaps next year might be possible.

    And Annihilator would be awesome, but I doubt it since Jeff Waters & co never really tour outside of Canada and Europe. Same thing with Saga.

    Here is something interesting I just found on Jon Oliva's forum. "In a recent interview, original Savatage drummer Steve 'Doc' Wacholz hinted that the legendary metal band will reunite once again for a tour next year (2018)." Could it be Glenn will get Savatage to close PPUSA XX ??? I'm not sure being nailed in a coffin and buried could keep me away from that performance.

    At this point we could craft an amazing roster of just Aussies. Travel costs would be...something else, though. CH and Hemina are high on my want list from down under, though.

    I'm going to just go ahead and hope that you left out some of what you'd consider insignificant digits on that decimal zero. Cause there's no risk in it for me to keep that non-zero hope alive.
