    I know that there is so much that you do to make the sausage, and for that I am truly grateful. I just enjoy every tasty morsel of that magnificent sausage that you create every single year.

    For me, this sounds like an upgrade for I found ReinXeed a bit limited in range, but either way a good band drops out and is replaced by another good band.

    Thanks Glenn!!!

    Honestly I definitely prefer Reinxeed, but I'm not going to complain since it was their doing. I take it they haven't responded yet?

    As for Divinity Compromised, they don't do it for me but if others are excited for them, then it's good for the festival.

    From ReinXeed's twitter:

    @ReinXeeds: We are very sorry to announce our cancellation of @ProgPowerUSA and all other shows and festivals in 2013.

    Talk about vague. Almost seems like it might be a health thing, but then I question that if he's still doing another show.

    It's just hard when this happens. Imagine buying 100 copies of their releases to find they are not coming.

    It sounds like burnout, but it's hard to read too much into the semantics of something that's written by someone for whom English probably isn't a first language. I was looking forward to them as some fun, cheesy power metal, but Divinity Compromised sound very promising...it's a shitty situation for all involved, but Glenn seems to have a knack for making the absolute best of a bad hand.

    I am also looking forward to the replacement - definitely feel bad for all the ReinXeed fans (and I was looking forward to see their set), but after hearing this it seems to be more to my liking.

    Glenn with another rabbit out of his hat FTW!

    Damn! I was really looking forward to that (not to mention the possibility of Tommy and Pellek doing a collaboration).

    Wow, I never even thought about how cancellations impact the vendors!! That sucks, to say the least!

    After hearing Divinity Compromised on Progpalace radio a few months ago, I've been hooked. I like ReinXeed ok, but wasn't necessarily looking forward to seeing them, so this is a most welcome line-up change for me. Definitely looking forward to seeing Divinity Compromised, especially after reading about their live performances being good as well. Unfortunate that late cancellations have such a ripple effect to the vendors.

    I was looking forward to seeing and meeting Tommy. I am equally looking forward to Divinity Compromised.

    Cheers Glenn.

    Okay - I am a pretty obnoxious Glenn Fanboy, but even I have stopped short of sausage references!

    It simply would NOT be Progpower without a band cancelling due to circumstances beyond the Promoter's control. I am waiting for an assclown to say the event should compensate with TWO bands to replace ReinXeed...

    Glenn's professionalism at handling these situations is impressive.

    Not sure if you're kidding about that or not, and I'm seriously curious to ask this but - do you normally buy that much product for when the bands are playing and do you really sell that much? That sure sounds like an awful lot of units to move in one weekend even if they were playing!

    edit: nvm I see what u did there lololol.

    Yeah, word, when I put 4 funny wacky icons at the end of a post, you know I'm cutting up, in this case giggling at a certain 'high volume' guy. :lol:
