    I originally did plan to go again this year, but have gone and bought a guitar rig instead, so next year is looking very likely. Hopefully I can fill some of the gaps in my list then!

    Right, I can't believe I forgot W.A.S.P. and I completely forgot how desperate I was to see Immortal until you brought this thread back to haunt us.:lol:

    Still, I doubt I'll be making Immortal for the price they want, I'm incredibly broke this month (thanks Iron Maiden :D). But I'm really, really looking forward to seeing Blackie and the boys in April!:kickass:

    How much are they charging for Immortal? The W.A.S.P. show isn't exactly cheap either!

    True but Immortal is $70, too much for a band formed in the 90s. They are black metal legends I ranked them high because they've made some ripper albums but music of my teenage years gets my money, at my age and on my income $1200 (Maiden & W.A.S.P. expenses) is enough to fork out in one year for concerts.

    Iron Maiden, Immortal and Sonata Arctica for shits and giggles.

    I'll be seeing all of them this year. Maiden last month, Immortal this month and SA at Wacken later on.

    Also add Turbonegro to that list.

    Yessir!

    Loved Dream Theater. :worship:

    Immortal in a few days. :headbang:

    I didnt see Maiden and I know I'll be kicking my own ass for all time.

    No Dimmu Borgir on the cards it seems but that is very possible what with a flood of black metal bands happening. Mayhem are coming, and Emperor a big maybe.



    I'm not on the site too often, my tastes changed a whole lot. My new must see bands are:

    Meshuggah
    Necrophagist
    Martyr

    A working holiday to Canada was on the cards for me late last year with some friends but their plan fell thru and they are now in a legal battle to get their money back from the job agency. Luckily I didnt pour my money through, but had we gone up there I would have seen Martyr, Meshuggah, Dimmu Borgir, Symphony X... Ah what might have been. :cry:

    Damn, you missed Maiden! How?!

    Dimmu will probably come; everyone else is coming!

    If Carcass and At the Gates can tour I'll happily get hit by a truck and know that most of my musical goals have been achieved.

    Yeah.

    Factors of cost, interstate travel, the tix selling out mega fast, no one to go with and share costs, other shows to spend my money on all added up to me missing Maiden. I know a fair few people who went and then couldnt afford Dream Theater. I'd take Dream Theater over Maiden anyhow.

    I remembered this thread the other night after watching At the Gates, and thought it worth revisiting.

    I've now seen Carcass and At the Gates. I never thought that would happen. There's now no band that I'm dying to see, but haven't. Still, I'd actually rather not get hit by a truck.

    As I posted many years ago in this thread, the only band left that I feel I need to see before I die is Rush, but I'll be seeing them in Amsterdam and Cologne next year.

    No one else after that... kind of sad. Might have to revisit this and think of some.

    If you can manage the timing, Sweden Rock would be the place to see Rush next year.

    I thought that about Bucko also. :(

    My main one now (after seeing Sabbath at Download this year) is Depeche Mode, who i travelled to London to see in 09 but the show was postponed due to Dave Gahan's cancer. This will be rectified next July in Belgium!

    Yeah, looked into doing that but funds will be lacking, unfortunately, especially when it comes to accommodation. Extra special annoyed because KISS are headlining one of the days too.

    You know, I've been thinking about this and I think I've seen every band on my bucket list.

    There's a few which would be nice to see, and a few which would have been great to see back in their prime but they're sort of past it now, but of my big ones which would be Maiden, Duran Duran, Kim Wilde, Priest, Psuedo Echo, Dio fronted Sabbath (and Dio solo), Queensryche, Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica, I've managed to see them all over the years, and a lot of others that were nice to tick off like Ozzy, Alice, Twisted Sister, Motorhead, Gamma Ray, etc.

    I reckon Depeche Mode would be pretty damn good to see though! Joey fronted Anthrax and Blind Guardian are the only two that come to mind that I'm keen to see metal-wise these days, although I'm pretty keen to see the Todd La Torre fronted Queensryche now too - nice to see some smiling faces behind the guitars and drum kit for the first time in ages. :)
