Got 4. \m/
Excellent, thanks for info. Tickets for Thursday purchased. Sorry if I misconstrued the BWBK/Gromen thing...glad it's all good with you guys.
my thoughts also...
THANK YOU! Four more tickets sold. Going both nights. Bucket list of bands to see just got WAAAAY smaller thanks to this INCREDIBLE four day weekend! Thank you Glenn and Jen!
This is a silly comment. This is a full blown U.S. tour in which Nightwish picked the opener long after I signed them. You should know the facts before you make assumptions.
Didn't make any assumptions and I understood that. I think you read more into my comment than I meant to imply. It is cool you got a major tour to stop at ProgPower. It just doesn't happen to be my thing, that's all.
You must have checked in the wrong place. This is not an *open* forum. This is a private forum that I pay for and maintain as an extension of my business. Yes, I do allow constructive criticism and negative comments if I believe they are warranted. I also have no problem with folks expressing their disappointment because of the band choices. You can't win them all.
However, I draw the line at thinking you can say whatever you want around here without consequence. That didn't work out too well for Ascension, Benmech, etc and I didn't lose any sleep.
So this is a genuine question...Glenn you say that Nightwish will sell out without ProgPower....but why would a local person be excited to see Nightwish and NOT want to go to ProgPower? And my reverse question is the same for TheLongshot....why would you not be into Nightwish/Kamelot but be into the lineup that weekend? How could someone who loves Imaginarium not love Beyond the Bridge (as an opener example?) How could a Kamelot fan not love Kingcrow? They both start with the letter "K"! Okay, last one was a joke, since I am "giddy" with excitement about the WHOLE line up.
Maybe TheLongshot has already seen NW and Kamelot a million times...then that I would understand. I'm really curious how people view the crossover-ness (look I made up a word!) from a Nightwish concert to a ProgPower weekend. It's not like NW/Kamelot and then Toby Keith for instance!
Yay! It'll be good to see you again! We wave when we drive by your part of the world, usually stupidly late at night.
Ranking TheLongshot with BenMech and Ascension is hardly fair. The guy just states he doesn't like it, he doesn't go on to state that he doesn't like it, that it sucks, why it sucks, and then go on to personally insult anyone who actually likes whatever he doesn't like, unlike the other two. He's not railing about the declining quality of the fest, unlike some folks have (who are no longer here,) he's not telling everyone that they suck for LIKING this lineup, he's not calling anyone yes-men/women, or accusing us all of "sucking on Glenn's Trombone" like BenMech did...all in all, TheLongshot is hardly being a dick about things just because he's not excited about them.
What are the chances either band will do a signing? I've got tix for both nights, and have fond memories of when NW came for the first time.
I doubt it this time around as this is a regular tour stop for them as opposed to a festival appearance.
To answer both questions, just because you are a fan of one band doesn't make you fan of the genre, and vice-versa. I have seen Kamelot multiple times, and despite being a huge fan of Conception and Khan, I could never get into Kamelot. They just didn't click for me.
Thanks. You said it better than I ever could. On that note, I'll bow out of this thread so I'm not viewed as thread crapping. For those who love this, enjoy.
Got tix...rockin' it Wed. & Thurs. Cool!
He said his peace. I replied without deleting his reply to my wife. I even told him I understood his disappoinment. We are both big boys and can handle the discussion in a grown up way.
However, I strongly explained this is not an open forum and showed the door to those that thought it was.
There is no need to continue this discussion. Period.
Don't think I've seen this mentioned, but is this going to be like an Evergrey/Vanden Plas deal where both bands are playing headlining sets?
Does the May 5 date also include Center Stage box office?
Nope. This is a Nightwish tour stop with Kamelot as the supporting act.
It does indeed (whenever they open up that day).
