TS was scheduled to headline... but news from Austria, SLAYER are the new Headliner on 2-nd night, so TS will go on before Slayer

I'M THERE ... just wanted to know if they'll play full set?

SEE YOU THERE MF's

Well, that kind of sucks. I should stop getting tickets for festivals way ahead when the festivals are not playing fair. Looking at last year's time table though hopefully we get at least 75 mins of Twisted Sister. Considering that Slayer rarely plays over 80 minutes that should be possible.

I kinda have pity for Slayer now... going after Twisted... hahah... That will be funny.

TS blew Slayer off in Wacken (the Reunion concert DVD)

I'm a little bummed about that too….but oh well.
So far, it looks like Twisted is still headlining all the others except for Montreal (Slayer headlines again. poor guys) and in Spain, Manowar is technically the headliner but it's the after-midnight spot, so…… yeah. Twisted to headline Spain. I used to like Manowar but now they can suck it.

Ow cool... Maybe Dee and Joey from Manowar can now talk after all these years about the fight that was going to happen 30 years ago :D hahah

BTW, Terry, what about Austria?
Do you know if they'll play the whole set?

Don't see that happening, lol!

As for Austria….you know as much as I do re: the set. I usually don't find out how long the set is until the day of the show, and the setlist (aside from being top secret) can change even during the show itself at the band's discretion. I'm sure it will be a good time for all--I'm crossing my fingers that they'll leave "I Am, I'm Me" on the setlist-- favorite song!

Well to me a great band is a great band, There are always peeps out there that think shity bands are good and poor taste etc etc . Not saying the other band is shity or not but we know awesome here on the board and yea Twisted to me should definitely be headlining.Promoters can be ass holes as im sure we all can agree on , but at least we can go see this really amazing band-- well I could if money wasnt getting in the way of my lifestyle.

To me a good example is American Idol who I heard Jay say wasnt his favorite to say the least. I hate that show and couldnt agree more but look how popular that shit was or is what ever, just goes to show the old colloquialism about the good boys dont always get what they deserve --- hey at least we know better when it comes to a band like TS

After much consideration (originally flying from UK to Holland for 'Into the Grave' with Megadeth headlining but thought fuck you Mustaine after their cancelling Europe but still playing Canada) my change of plan means I'm going to the Alcatraz festival in Belgium instead to see Twisted Sister who are headlining the saturday night there.

Fuck me but it would be so much less travelling for me if TS actually did a proper show in (central) England instead!!

I went to see Twisted in Barcelona on Saturday. Manowar were the headliners but Twisted played before them at around midnight and I simply left after that and they were the headliners for me. Kind of sucks as there were some tech issues before Twisted start and it looked as they had to cut some songs to fill in the spot they had at the BCN festival
