    After reading the interesting feedback on Glenn's little poll, I would be interested to know if anyone who is expecting less bands with longer sets...who exaclty you are expecting to see at prog power 3.0 play longer?

    personally, since Glenn hasn't mentioned any bands, I'd like to see what everyone's expecting him to pick! should we create a betting pool on this?
    :D

    Hhhmm - well besides the almost certain Blind Guardian, I find it gets a bit difficult.

    Threshold - would appear to have a good chance as they are well-liked and are on Inside Out. Otherwise Arena would be a good choice if Clive Nolan can tear himself away from his other projects for long enough.

    Pain of Salvation - since they didn't play the last one, I guess that they are in with a chance of a return - and once again it would be very popular - and probably a slightly different audience to that who would come for Threshold.

    Edguy - unless they somewhere else in the States first. Toby is a friend of Hansi too, isn't he?

    Agent Steel or Jag Panzer - a little something for the American Power metal fans.

    Digital Ruin/Reading Zero/Persephone's Dream - another band which hangs around the PM board. American Prog/Prog-Metal.

    Andromeda/Wolverine/Another swedish outfit - have to fit another swedish band in somewhere.

    Freedom Call/Falconner/Lost Horizon/Silent Farce - must be a Euro Power metal representative

    Event - something for the Tech Metallers

    For sure there will be
    - At least 1 German band
    - At least 1 Swedish band
    - At least 1 USA band
    - someone to fill the Randy 'Mullet' coven role of chief prick

    less likely:
    Savatage - already play the States

    Labyrinth - a fave of Harv's, but damn awkward buggers to deal with, I've heard.

    Rhapsody - LOL! By time fall rolls around they'll have broken up.

    Another Italian band - will consider it but flounce off in disgust when not given headlining slot.

    Royal Hunt - they would announce their participation and then pull out with weeks to spare claiming that their management hadn't made the necessary arrangements for their travel/equipment.

    bah - that's all I can come up with right now.

    That would be a killer lineup, one that would again make me seriously consider making flight arrangements behind my parents' back :) Blind Guardian and Pain Of Salvation would make great headliners, and from what I've heard Threshold is awesome live. Andromeda would also be an excellent choice, especially since everyone is eagerly anticipating the new album with the new singer. And all of the US bands, or the Perp residents, you mentioned are deserving of much greater attention, I've featured them in my recommendations column on multiple occasions.

    I;d pay to see The Tiles or Ice Age for Prog Rock

    If we couldn't have Rhapsody I'd settle for Thy Majestie or Stormwind.


    How about Brainstorm, Angra, Evergrey (again), Silent Force or DC Cooper

    Oh and then there's Savatage, Jag Panzer, Iced Earth.

    Some relatively unknown bands I'd like to see are of course Katagory V or a band from Argentina called Damnation whose EP Another Life is one of the best I've heard in a long time (check out thier site at http://www.geocities.com/arkana67 )

    That's my two cents and change:)

    My hopes are for any or all of the following:

    Vanden Plas
    Andromeda
    Vanishing Point
    Poverty's No Crime
    Reading Zero
    Shadow Gallery(HAHAHAHAHAHAHA)
    Silent Force(or just DC Cooper performing with whomever)
    Silent Exile(from Canada, save on travel! hehe)
    Labyrinth



    Who is this "Blind Guardian" anyway?? hehe

    Actually, my hope is just to stay awake for the whole thing...... :)

    Glenn has done a great job of getting a variety of types of bands. Power, prog, technical, etc. I hope that continues. I'd like to see at least one band in the following categories:

    Prog Metal
    Power Metal
    Female vocals
    Good Death metal vocals
    Technical Metal
    When Hell Freezes Over

    With that said, here's who I would like to see in those categories:

    Prog Metal - Pain Of Salvation
    Power Metal - Blind Guardian
    Female vocals - Nightwish
    Good Death metal vocals - Opeth
    Technical Metal - Gordian Knot, Spastic Ink and/or Watchtower
    When Hell Freezes Over - Shadow Gallery

    Other bands that would be interesting would include DC Cooper, Wolverine, Stonehenge, Green Carnation, Novembre, Edenbridge, Within Temptation, Gamma Ray, Edguy, Dreams Of Sanity.

    Glenn has had so many awesome bands at the first two PP's that my list of "bands I'd love to see but probably never will" is much shorter now!

    But hell, even if Glenn booked a band playing Backstreet Boys covers in 7/8 I'll be there for sure.

    Thanks for that little plug John!:D
    ...how would that be!

    Jag Panzer would be awsome (You already know I LOVE those guys!)
    Angra & Silent Force are in my wish list to see live as well.

    there are SO MANY damn good bands out there that fit the bill...it would be hard for me NOT to enjoy who is invited! I'm just looking forward to the whole deal..including the "family reunion" aspect of it! :lol: The bands are only 50% of it for me...it's the crazy prog/power metal fans like myself that attend that make it just as fun!

    Progmetal - Pain Of Salvation, or if they're not available Andromeda or Threshold
    Powermetal - Blind Guardian
    Female vocals - After Forever
    Good DM vocals - Besides the obvious choice of Opeth, I don't know of anyone who has growls and can strictly and comfortably fit into the prog requirement :)
    Technical metal: again, I think everyone covered it...
    When hell freezes over: Crimson Glory with original lineup
    Prog rock: The Flower Kings or Porcupine Tree
    Unsigned: Reading Zero, Dysrythmia, Strange Land

    Kez: excellent choices.

    My list of bands I'd love to see perform are as follows -

    Nightwish
    Angra
    Stratovarius
    Sonata Artica
    Rhapsody
    Edguy
    Balance Of Power
    Superior

    (I wasn't at 2.0 so I missed BOP and SUperior)

    Of course Symphony X, BG, Threshold, Helloween, Nevermore, Children Of Bodom, Zero Hour, PoS, and Kamelot would be cool also ;)

    I definitely hope Blind Guardian will come. They simply rule!
    Apart from that I would also love to see:

    Grave Digger
    Vanden Plas
    Shadow Gallery
    Nightwish
    Children of Bodom (not likely)
    Brainstorm
    Rage
    Elegy
    Iced Earth
    etc......
    There are so many great bands to chose from. I just hope that there won't be a band like Nightingale this time (not really power nor prog metal)

    Oh man, we (our group from Phoenix) really enjoyed Nightingale last year. It may not be easily categorized, but they're good. We picked up "I" because of their performance.
