    There was a lot of talk a few years back because those types of bands never really used to tour the States. Metalheads were hungry for 'folk metal' bands to come through the US but, with a few exceptions, they were never really on many tours. So, when the first Paganfest was announced, with a lineup full of those bands, people had reason to talk. There's no reason to talk now that it's normal and commonplace.

    I actually felt the same way. I don't get why those bands are still pulling people in, but they are.

    I think you guys are getting the wrong idea by my comments....
    I am not dissing any of these bands.....
    I think dcowboys said it best.
    When PAganfest first came around, it was the first full tour to feature these types of bands.
    It is indeed more commonplace now.

    No, I didn't.
    Though why would I know this? LOL.......

    Anyhow....well.....good.. I guess that speaks to the demand for such bands which should in turn mean this tour should do well........

    It's probably got something to do with the fact that the shows are fun as fuck. It's almost more theater than music.

    Argh. Does anyone more connected than me know if this is the case for the NYC show? Nothing says sold out but live nation also has no tickets. Was so looking forward to it :(

    Sigh... well I guess I will pick up my tickets to the Turisas/Firewind show right now, just in case. Not at all used to shows selling out in advance, but I guess it is a good sign.

    Why would anyone pay to see Trollfest?

    It's a trollfest on these forums daily! :Spin:

    I would go to the Oakland show, but it is on the same night as Doro/Sister Sin. I hate scheduling conflicts.

    Have you seen Doro before? You know what, it doesn't matter. Doro trumps all.

    I haven't seen her in over a decade, and she is more pleasant to look at than the guys in Tuisas and Firewind. Plus, I've never seen Sister Sin. Easy choice.

    I'm on the fence about it.
