6/29 Weyburn SK @ Crescent Point Place


Seriously? I can at least understand Gibbons, AB, I suppose, since it's pretty close to Edmonton... but Weyburn has a population of 10,000 and is over 100km from the nearest major city. WTF? What a weird choice of a location for a tour like this.

Volbeat is headlining, and I just have one question:



Who the hell is Volbeat?

NO IL! WHAT THE HELL.

I'm dying to see Volbeat.

What the actual fuck?

I get the Volbeat/Iced Earth connection. That makes sense to me since they are friends. But what the fuck is Hellyeah doing on there?


That said I will be there.

To be honest Hellyeah made more sense to me since in the US Volbeat has been doing a lot of festivals with more hard rock/radio bands


Hoping it comes nearby though, Iced Earth and Volbeat sounds fun

Doesn't make sense at all. I don't think I can remember of anything ever happening in Weyburn. I'd go see this show if it wasn't way the fuck out in the middle of no where like this. Kinda pisses me off since I had to miss Iced Earth when they were in Stoon and Volbeat was fun to see at Gigantour.

I'd hit this up if it was coming close to me. I always get a kick out of odd pairings.

So... IE are opening for a band that's been shit since their 3rd album and has been shit live since day one, and a band that's simply been shit?

Yeah, that's worth spending time and money on.

A band whose gimmick was pretty great for 2 albums, ran out of ideas from the third one onwards, have been dull ever since but everyone woke the fuck up at that point and jumped on the bandwagon.

They're basically the Ghost of 5 years ago, picked up late.

I'm not gonna lie, some things you say are really amusing.

This. Especially considering he openly enjoys Fozzy.

While that is very valid, that's not even the ticker (as I'm sure you know).

So many incorrect things were said in that statement, although my favorite was that they are the Ghost of five years ago. Even taking aside musical comparisons (which I certainly hope were never meant to be mentioned), they have such minuscule similarities. Talk about a stretch.

I might go to this and show up late just to see Volbeat. This is definitely a big WTF lineup (the Hellyeah/Clutch pairing was a lot more confusing to me than this though).

I don't like Iced Earth that much...and they're the best band on the bill.

Wow, hope I can go to this. Amazing lineup. Hellyeah will probably play new songs and Volbeat is always a pleasure to see live plus I have never seen Iced Earth so this should be an amazing show.

I'm very confused as to how Volbeat suck now. They haven't changed their sound at all. They sound the same as they ever have. AC/DC and Slayer have done that for decades and not many seem to mind. Why does it matter if Volbeat sounds the same?

I get not liking that style of music, but to say the first couple albums are anything better then the newest album is pretty :lol:'able, since it's the same damn album with one song containing vocals from Barney of Napalm Death

The tour is coming to The Paramount in Huntington, NY. Hopefully I can make it.

He's right. Volbeat is nothing more than Load/Reload with annoying vocals. I was glad to discover I wasn't the only one who can't stand them.

And because of Barney's singing it's worth buying?

I think you missed my point. Volbeat haven't sold out or done anything different then the first album. Its basically the same damn thing. Barney just sings on one song. And people on youtube who are new Volbeat fans bash the hell out of that song for that reason. It would sound just like Volbeat without him.

So yeah....I just got word I'm interviewing Iced Earth at The Myth in Maplewood, MN June 26th. It will most likely be Stu, Jon, or both!

I'm on cloud motherfucking 9 right now!

That song is awesome. :lol: Mille from Kreator is on one of their songs, too.
