    I guess that's fair. His inability to hear the audience was starting to get annoying though :lol:


    A perfect occasion for drinking the last drops out of your beer(s) and look for the beer guy-flag.

    Have been @ beergarden but didn't see anybody wearing a 70kton shirt except myself.

    Awesome festival as every year. Eläkeläiset ruled! - already ordered the 2012 tickets.

    The only bad event : Broke my leg during the very last mud fight of the festival. But - was worth it :headbanger:

    Wacken 2012:

    Nine bands confirmed:

    Amon Amarth
    Axel Rudi Pell
    Cradle Of Filth
    Forbidden
    Gamma Ray
    HammerFall
    Ministry
    Scorpions
    U.D.O.

    Wacken always start with good announcements and then lose it in the end. Out of those 9 I will probably see 7-8.

    And it's apparently going to be the scorpions last festival show ever. I think I'll go again next year.

    No, this is still the same tour. They announced their retirement and then said that they were going out on a 3 year world tour.

    In the newspaper has been written they are going to prepare themself for a special Wacken show. I hope, noe "Wind Of Changes", "Holliday",... instead more songs from "In Trance", "Virgin Killer" and "Taken By Force".

    And they shouldn't forget to invite Michael Schenker and Ulli Jon Roth :shred:

    That would be awesome! Although I really like Wind of Change, Holiday I can live without. Seeing Uli play In Trance, We'll Burn The Sky, Virgin Killer and Sails Of Charon was fucking MAGICAL on the boat. I can't imagine if they had the original lineup at Wacken...oh man. It's apparently going to be a "best of" show so hopefully that means old and new.

    Hmm I completely missed this topic before Wacken. Met some people who were on the cruise this year on Thursday though as I was wearing my 70K shirt that day. Well, I'll do some better reading on here next time.
