Hey guys, I just saw the lineup, and have to say... I'm utterly disappointed. Last year was my first ProgPower show. I drove 10+ hours from Indiana to get there, and it was probably the best concert I've ever been too. Blind Guardian, Angra, Edguy, Gamma Ray, Pain Of Salvation. *drools from thinking about it* It was obvious that this years show would pale in comparison, but ever since ProgPower III, when Jon Schaffer and Richard Christy (whom I talked too) were there, it seemed a given IE would be at ProgPower IV. I would say, the last 4 or 5 months, everyone I know was 99% certain Iced Earth would be at ProgPower, but I still had my doubts. I decided that, if IE indeed was at PPIV, I would go, and if not, it would depend on the lineup. I have to say, this lineup does absolutely NOTHING for me. Symphony X is eh, and Evergrey sounded okay from what we heard between sets last year, but I'm not about to shell out several hundred dollars for a lineup that I feel is not good in any way. I'm still completely shocked that IE isn't there, and even more shocked that Ion Vein isn't. I thought they were a lock, but I guess not. To all you going, have fun. The show is a blast, but this year, I just can't justify spending money when I don't like a single band on the list. I hope you'll be mature enough not to flame me for my opinion, but I guess think of it this way... This means 3 or 4 extra tickets that I won't be buying now, that you guys can get. One more thing... Glenn - You do an amazing job man. I'm sorry that I won't be going this year, but hey, you can't please everyone. Keep up the great work, and hopefully I'll see you guys all at ProgPower V.
