And, fewer than normal repeats from the 2011 cruise in 2019, to have them on the lineup for 2020?Pellaz wrote: ↑Thu Sep 27, 2018 3:59 pm--Which brings up an interesting point. If Andy wants to have a knockdown blowout 10th anniversary lineup, then either he'll have to "scale back" the band offerings for this year, or opt to break his unpublished and unofficial rule and allow repeats in 2020.
If 2019's lineup ends up being a little "average," this might explain why.
Last three cruises we've had 7, 5 and 6 repeats from 2011. This year at almost the halfway point we only have 2. It would be a pretty big deal, for example, if 2011 veterans Blind Guardian and Iced Earth came back in 2020, along with for instance a special Demons & Wizards set. Or if 2011 veterans Amon Amarth finally returned in 2020.
