So … I am happy.
They came with the requisite burger king vouchers, random paraphernalia, sample CV (which I will talk about later this week), and our new WOA t-shirts.
I normally hate wearing t-shirts with swear words on them, but I make an exception for this.
Today’s announcement confirms Ozzy Osbourne as the Night to Remember headliner on the Thursday night. Not too exciting for me, I must admit, as we saw Ozzy at Rock2Wgtn a couple of years ago, but nevertheless, the general Wacken excitedness is in the air.
In other metal festival announcements, Blind Guardian just confirmed for 70,000 Tons of Metal, making the four-day cruise the best festival lineup of 2011 so far. CDH has to work for his old man that week, but he said I could go if I wanted. Am seriously tempted, but with most of the cheap cabins gone, it’s probably better to save my money …
I wanna know, who’s got tickets to what shows / festivals lined up for the end of this year or 2011? A lot of people say we’re mental for booking tickets so far in advance, but, it’s not like we just take a few days off work and drive an hour out of town, like some lucky Germans I might mention. It’s a lot of planning and saving to get back to Europe, and I’m really hoping we’ll be able to stay for a good long while this time.
Peace, love and heavy fucking metal
