    Because we've been left waiting so long, I just bought the daughter her first car with money that would have enabled me to pay for a cabin in full.

    So now that I can't really afford to do that until my next pay, I expect an announcement tomorrow :P

    I just bought a new car too. I’m now something less than 100% likely to go. Not sure how less. For last year’s lineup, I probably wouldn’t now.

    Well tonight is Slayer's last show in North America so hopefully we hear some news pretty SOON if the rumor/guess of them being on board is true. I don't really care if slayer is on or not. Almost vote no so Andy has more money for other bands. But regardless I just want to hear so some news!

    They just posted today "We're almost there, sailors!"

    Which kinda pisses me off because it's so cryptic. But whatever, maybe it is Slayer and a band I don't even like has been holding up announcements for 3 months. That'd make me as a sailor so happy.. :roll:

    When they finally announce the first bands, it’s going to be like Randy Marsh when he finally got the internet back:

    Me, too. I'm about to be "out of position" for almost two weeks due to DragonCon and ProgPower USA. Not without net access per se, but it will be...hectic and slow. And during DragonCon all of downtown Atlanta's net access is overwhelmed by 85,000 geeks. Myself included. :lol:

    If I'm slow to "smoke" the victims when they inevitably die here, well...there ya go.

    Looks like SLAYER wanted one more day to dominate the news with their press release this morning, so the winner will be Ti7aNiC tomorrow.

    King said: “we want to assure our fans that we'll be on the road through 2019 and will get to as many places around the world as possible to make it easier for everyone to come and see us one last time”.
    What easier way to reach 75 countries at once than our boat? “As many places as possible”...

    That, and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES getting the boot, plus the “We’re almost there” comment makes the probability of it happening shoot up geometrically for me.

    If the announcement happens tomorrow it means that SLAYER would dominate the music news for 2 days in a row, that’s accrued mindshare, and in marketing this is spelled “mind$hare” :trashdrink:

    I also think there will be a second heavy-hitter, as I don’t think that SLAYER alone justifies the “you’re going to shit your pants” comments 70000tons have been saying.
    I’m still hoping for JUDAS PRIEST but both at the same time seems a bit much, so I’ll guess LAMB OF GOD, which have been touring with SLAYER all year.
    And DIMMU BORGIR as the 3rd headliner.

    I actually agree with this - but I dream of Judas Priest. I've had a beer with Bruce Dickinson a few years back, and now the #1 metalhead I want to meet is Rob Halford. A guy can dream.

    All very big misses for me.

    Slayer seems incredibly unlikely. I discussed this possibility briefly with some survivors at Powerglove last week, and they all agreed that Slayer would be a bad boat band anyway. They couldn't do their stage show, and it would attract a set of boat virgins that might dampen the overall atmosphere.

    I could see a couple of more "modern" heavy hitters for the headliners. I don't see Dimmu, but maybe Amon Amarth and/or Gojira? And one "classic" band... Of which I don't know many. DTA?

    I really hope that it is not Slayer we are waiting for. Not because I don't like them, there are always enough good bands on board and some that are less my taste, that's part of the concept.
    But I think this would make it extra hard for a newbie like me to snatch a cabin. There would surely be a lot of Slayer fans trying to be on the boat just for them.

    ProgPower will announce its entire lineup for September of 2019 next week, for both the pre-party and the main festival. Just sayin.

    From the Slayer fans that I saw in June, most of them would be completely clueless about most 70k bands. Slayer is a classic metal band that is world renowned. Even the biggest 70k bands for the most part are relatively unknown in a mainstream arena.

    Wait until you see the "5 Months" announcement. It's the best looking announcement yet. It's gonna blow you out of the water. There's never been a "5 Months" announcement equal to the one you're getting in just 2 DAYS!!!!!

    Even if I have been quiet for age, I am still reading messages on the forum :D

    As a lot of us, I am totally disappointed by the silence of the 70K team, except the social media people who keep posting some same answers for months on FB. It's looks that they listen us but not hear us, they don't care that we have, for the people outside the US mostly, to book flights and save a lot of money :bitch:

    I had to change my plans for 2019 thanks of the silence of 70K, I have now the money to pay the cruise fully in one payment, but I have to save more money for the other holiday in 2019. It could be useful to know how I have to save actually, if I have to be totally strict in my expenses or not.

    I know that a lot of people think that the cruise will take place, but my question is: am I the only one who have doubts? There are far too many weird things, as the 2 last recap videos not done, the survivors ask videos not posted, the mega thread not created and I don't know what more :oops: That make think that there's probably a very serious trouble somewhere in the 70K team. I hope I am wrong, of course and I am trying to keep a thin positive attitude, but I have actually more and more difficulties to stay positive :roll:

    If they don’t announce SLAYER tomorrow, I think the whole “they have to wait for SLAYER” theory falls flat, because their press release clearly opened the door for that.

    All I have left in my bag of snake oil theories for the delay is that the big announcement is in fact MEGADETH, and Dave misspoke when he mentioned a cruise in 2019 (some news outlets report this interview as a cruise AND a boot camp thing in Europe).
    Then the theory would be that Dave wants to green light all or most of the bands, and Andy is scrambling to book them, in which case the announcements date is unbounded.

    We’ll know tomorrow, since a FB post is overdue. If it’s a bullshit post, then yes, the one after that will be the dreaded “5 months” post.

    IMO no single band or group of bands could justify UMC pissing at us for two months the way they did.
    I'm just exploring the narrative they've been feeding us on FB, that something big is coming.

    What else would they say? 'Sailors, we know it's being a long wait, and what's coming next is not such a big deal anyway'.

    Remember, they're just the social media guys, at this point they probably don't know shit either, they're just doing their job, which is trying to keep the community stoked.

    The longer time passes without any news, the less they seems to be succeeding at that.
    6 hours ago, they posted a barrage of comments such as "imminently", "pronto", and "But we are soooooo close! Seriously!!!"
    Why can't they give a fucking date? Tell us something like September XX, and everybody will stop bitching.

    I wonder what would have happened without FB, and just radio silence on this forum from Andy since February, if you ignore the #SurvivorsAsk posts (which stopped in June).
    Even Tweeter is only getting a fraction of the FB reposts now.

There are far too many weird things, as the 2 last recap videos not done, the survivors ask videos not posted, the mega thread not created and I don't know what more :oops: That make think that there's probably a very serious trouble somewhere in the 70K team. I hope I am wrong, of course and I am trying to keep a thin positive attitude, but I have actually more and more difficulties to stay positive :roll:


    I'm not worried at all. The cruise will happen 100%. We are a cash cow for RCCL. And - I'm not saying Andy is rolling in it - but I certainly believe UMC is a lot better off financially than everyone in here seems to think. Andy clearly chartered the Independence for 2019 years beforehand, and has indicated that he has something special in store for 2020.

    As well, it'd be a stupid business if they had to completely sell out in order to profit; there's a break-even somewhere. I can guarantee you that UCM is not hurting for money or investments. But, that being said, even after 30 years Wacken isn't making the organizers rich - as they always reinvest the profits back into the festival itself. UMC is likely doing the same, but looking to expand - not just focusing on 70000tons. Andy made it clear in the press conference that UMC is also working towards a European cruise that won't be under the 70000 Tons Of Metal moniker. To me, it just sounds like UMC has a lot on their plate (70K, "something special" 2020, Barge II?, a European cruise?). And finally, we all know Andy and that UCM is quite secretive.

    As for recap videos day 3 & 4, there's just so many variables as to why we don't have them we'll likely never know what happened. Maybe UCM simply lost their video editor and just haven't put the time in to find a replacement employee. Maybe a new UMC website is on the way that will tie all their cruises together. Maybe Disturbed is asking for too much money.

    The megathread literally takes two seconds to make, so I see no reason to be concerned about that; just because it was done ahead of time in the past does not mean it needs to be that way moving forward.

    Everything is fine. I'll see you all on the boat (but probably not the Aussie's at this rate).

    Correct. I'll be furious at this rate if I don't get to hear the Greatest Hit of Disturbed on broad in 2019.

    This is the most likely course of action. It just upsets me progressively more every year how little UMC seems to care about us getting information.

    Thankfully, the Canadian dollar has at least not been getting any worse. I've been reminded that the odds of me getting a key MDM band are HIGH, so I'll probably be drawn to book as long as there's a damn announcement before October. Though the AUD slipping makes it unlikely I'll get to see all my Aussie friends which is sad :(
