I wouldn't kill off festival tours just because of the downfall of Mayhem and Metal Alliance. It does seem like "underground" bands who would rather put together things on their own terms are doing...

Wait, I am wrong. Eluveitie played Royale with Wintersun... how could I forget that? I had a contact lens knocked out of my eye that night.

I think the same can be said for Eluveitie as well. Both have played Cambridge (Epica did Middle East on the tour Simone missed, Eluveitie did Sinclair last year after it was moved from Royale) but...

Agreed on both counts.

I actually got my tix to the Amaranthe show through Jess and Chad. Small world.

I was at this show (no shame!).

The show had 4 local openers upstairs followed by Santa Cruz, I Prevail, and then Amaranthe downstairs. Probably only about 500-600 people there, which was a bit...

I agree with the popularity thing but it is a bit unusual to see a quality 2 Euroband tour and no one else latching on for the ride to warm things up.

Could be space for locals too perhaps...

The Euro version of this also had Scar Symmetry. I'm guessing they'll be taking out 1-2 more here as well.

Fair point, but they had a 75 minute slot (10:45-midnight) and they ended up playing for less than an hour, so something else happened. Whether or not it was other bands starting late or they took...

Royale is such a weird venue for metal, it's almost too nice inside, but every show I've seen there has been a blast. ATG sounded amazing and were having a blast.

Ditto on the Vallenfyre singer...

"April Rain" was in Delain's set, it may have been third or fourth. And yes, Charlotte can sing. She's one of the best live vocalists in the genre.

Clearly there won't be a night that's as ridiculously packed as the Saturday night w/Metallica was last year, but this is about as diverse a heavy music fest will get in North America.

I'll split the difference. 60 minutes is a bit short, 75 minutes seems fair for an intense headlining set for a "heavy" "veteran" band. That is usually 14-16 songs for most. 60 minutes as a...

I'm shocked Sinclair is that small. It feels bigger than that. That capacity makes it smaller than the middle east downstairs (something like 660).

Valid point, there are lots of ways to get to...

Not that big a drop. Royale holds about 800 for shows, Sinclair about 650. If it got pushed to Palladium upstairs or a Brighton venue, that would be a very bad sign.

I'm actually kinda happy -...
