    This is all in fun but just wondering what you thought was the most pointless moment of 2019?

    For me, as much as I ADORE Delain, I thought given that they only had 45 minute sets, to do an extended drum and guitar solo was POINTLESS!

    Also even though I only caught one Kamelot set, looks like they did their usual amount of time wasting with solos, singalongs etc.

    Save it for your headlining shows people!!
    Kamelot pulled that crap in 2017 too. I was running around like a madwoman trying to catch their set so was utterly pissed that they did a shortened headliner with all manner of filler.

    Note to bands reading this: DO NOT DO THIS. Please.

    And the sad thing is, Kamelot KNOWS better.
    When they played ProgPower USA many years ago, they opened with what is still IMHO the best -- and better yet, CONCISE -- intro in the history of the festival. They started with a recording of "The Might of Rome" from the Gladiator soundtrack, faded it out just as the awesome crescendo finished (instead of letting the song finish, which would have been a waste of 90 seconds), and then went right into "The Fourth Legacy." No filler, just perfect.

    Kalmah's jokes are a national treasure. I hope he does more next time. :mrgreen:
    ANYTHING to break up the monotony of all this metal, right?
