This is probably the funniest thread in the whole forum, and I am glad this circus band continues its endless backtracking! Here is the most finalest tour!

"The tour will be bigger than ever, featuring orchestra and choir, Viking reenactors, stunning visuals and a powerful set list full of immortal classics."

Sooo... 150€ for a standard ticket then, without supporting acts and an hour late? That is, if they play at all...

In all honesty tho, it's maddening to me how low this band has fallen. They were always bordering on self parody, but up until "Triumph of Steel" they were able to compensate this with awesome music. They got gradually worse from this point on, but i think the straw that broke the camel's back was the bad reception of "Gods Of War". They cancelled the whole arc of viking concept albums that was planned, "Lord of Steel" was a terrible album cashing in on people's nostalgia, and their gigs became passionless, bloated auto-fellatio sessions. Almost like they lost all their artistic ambition somewhere around 2005-2007 and just stay together to milk their fanatic fanbase.
Sadly, i fell for that strategy myself and payed around 90€ for gig when i was still part of said fanbase. I had great fun at the time, but in retrospect it was middling at best, and i would never pay so much money for something like this again.

We ever figure out if the pedophile was convicted or not?

Last I heard, no.

It was almost two years ago he was originally charged.

I guess maybe him not being convicted (yet) may be due to COVID-19, but I'm not 100% sure.

A 3 to 4 year "Final Battle" tour, just to turn back around and now do an even more expensive 40 year anniversary tour. What a joke. This one will probably run 5 years and at the end they'll come out and say they're doing an even bigger 45 year anniversary tour.

I think that person a few pages back was right, we'll never see those promised Final Battle EP #2 and #3. Why would they release them now that the tour is over and they've moved onto another tour?

This is KISS level, and without the back catalogue to support an endless series of farewell tours :lol:

Someone is obviously broke, maybe storming off at Hellfest and putting on half-arsed shows the rest of the time doesn't pay the bills ?

No idea. I can't even fathom what Joey is planning here anymore. By this point literally half of this band's existence has been one gigantic parade of insanity.

Sounds like a decent distraction during the 173 minute hi hat solo.
