Blind Guardian festivals 2012?

#1 Post by Alpha Penguin » 09 Aug 2011 05:25

Hello all!

I hope this is worthy of a new topic, but I'm curious as to whether or not Blind Guardian does festival shows every summer? I missed Wacken this year and next year it is 99.9% certain they won't play Wacken haha! It's my dream to see a BG festival show in Germany. Do any of you know the likelihood that BG will headline festivals next year? Or if it would be more worth it to wait for another Coburg type festival? I see in interviews there is talk of a Nightfall in Middle Earth festival w/orchestra being talked about (though my hunch is that is some years away lol!)
How can we take it away from someone who has no right--no right to control the divine!!

Hello there!
According to this site it is possible that they'll headline the Rock in Concert Open Air in Weismain (that's about 40 km from Coburg).
Not really a Blind Guardian Open Air, but still an amazing and rather small festival.

Blind Guardian confirmed as Headliner of Rock am Härtsfeldsee!
Well, it's not an open air - it's takes place in a tent - but it would be worth to see them there.
It seems that they're going to play really at a lot of festivals this summer.
Any ideas which festival will be next? Rock in Concert Open Air (my absolute dream, this festival rocked!)? Summer Breeze (they MUST have a genius band like BG on their 15th anniversary...)? Summer's End (To revive somehow the old days, when they still played at youth centres?)?

Uh...ooohh. Well..., I, ehm, already knew that, uh. I just wanted to test you ;).
But do they play at other German festivals this year?
Or only RaH and Metalfest (West)?

nothing's confirmed so far, as far as I know. But may well be, Bang Your Head, Rock Hard or maybe even finally at SummerBreeze, those might be likely candidates.

Come on Bard's, it's time to update the 2012 tour calender!
I'm considering Power Prog & Metal Fest 2012, but it would be nice if they'd come to Forces of Metal in Holland!

and another one here http://www.garage-sb.de/news/article/blind-guardian/

08.06.2012 GER, Saarbrücken - Garage

Obviously there is something not right cause there are two dates at 7.6.2012 and two dates at 08.06.2012, but I think we will get the official dates on the mainpage soon.
Also the 2012 dates are printed on the Santa Guardian shirts that were available at the last 4 concerts,maybe someone who bought one could compare the dates with these...
welcome to the show
and welcome to...

Thanks, this clears up some dates, but I guess the date for Pratteln has to be 09.06.2012 and I hope you made another typo with the 03.06.2012 dates ...
...or maybe the band got some clones for Xmas :wink:
