    None of these bands would get me to go again, but there's still 33 to go.

    www.70000tons.com

    The wait is over! 70000TONS OF METAL, The World's Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival welcomes the first 7 out of 40 scheduled bands for 2012 aboard:

    Eluveitie
    Grave Digger
    My Dying Bride
    Pestilence
    Stratovarius
    Therion
    Tristania

    And as a tradition, we will make our first scheduled port call in Finland. Sailors... prepare your wish-lists!

    Definitely a good start. Looking forward to hear the rest of the bands.

    Oh, I am tempted. That is a very good start. I've been thinking lately that I cannot let another chance to see Grave Digger go by. Sure, they aren't the oldest band around, but the clock isn't moving backwards for any of us.

    I am kind of hoping they may do a few US dates like Raven and Gamma Ray did last time after the cruise.

    Same here - I'll splurge for the cruise if I have to, but if Grave Digger comes back to NY again, I'm there. I regret missing the one-off they did in January '08. Not to mention not being able to attend Raven playing right in my backyard this past February (stupid car! arrrgh).

    Raven was amazing live. They played like they were still in thier 20's and in front of 20,000 people. Great to see a band still be enthusiastic after decades.

    This along with ProgPower has become one of my yearly chances to splurge and blow all my money. I can't wait, its already off to a good start.

    That's AWESOME! I'll be tempted yet again. Grave Digger and My Dying Bride alone would get me there if I have moolah by then. Haha. It would be better though if they did shows in Chicago around that time though.

    Great stuff, I'm on board again for sure as soon as they'll take my money. I'd happily pay double the price of what I did last year. I think Nightwish and Alestorm will be on as well, don't know any other bands confirmed yet.

    Yeah, I heard rumors of Nightwish and Amorphis. So far it's looking good.

    School killed this for me this year. I'm going to do everything I can to go next year. Looking good so far.

    I couldn't do it this year, missed Rage and so many others, that will not be easily lived down since I already couldn't make it to their performance at PP a few years back. I wasn't going to click on this thread, but now I did and I'm depressed, since the amazing utopia of floating heavy metal will be amazing again and I probably won't be able to go........... :mad:

    I also heard that Iced Earth and Blind Guardian and strong rumor of Demon's and Wizards. My source isnt that good but who knows.

    I'd be surprised if there wasn't. Schaffer was hammered and telling everyone within earshot that he wanted to do it, and Schaffer/Hansi/Kai looked to be all having fun together on stage.

    Grave Digger and My Dying Bride alone would more than warrant the trip for me.
    Everything else would be gravy...........

    Sigh.... Don't think I could talk the wife into letting me spend the money to do this.

    I thought Therion wasn't going to play in the US again. Or does it not count being on water?

    Dude I swear, it boggles my mind that this is hard stuff to get for some people. If the $$ is right, it doesn't matter where the band will play. Therion would play in Oprah's butthole if they got enough money to do so. It's not rocket science.

    But the last few tours they did, the money sucked and the conditions sucked. Thus, no more US shows.
