    I'd be very surprised if Moonsorrow or Death Angel get less minutes than Scar Symmetry or Mors Principium Est.

    Yeah but I'd love it if they did. Though realistically MPE and SS are both getting 45. Much as I want more.

    The only reason to announce a headliner at the last minute would be to get more people in the habit of booking in the spring/summer, before much of the lineup is announced - the "trust me, it's going to be awesome" factor. Announcing Amon Amarth at the last minute might not do much for ticket sales this year (which really don't need much of a boost anyway), but could mean more people pull the trigger early next year.

    I suspect if that was a practical strategy more promoters would use it. But promoters almost exclusively do the opposite and finalize their lineups, and at very least their headliners, many months before the event and often before tickets even go on sale. As for ticket sales not needing a boost, I would disagree. Every day the boat doesn't sell out he's losing interest on his money, as well as having the financial uncertainty that comes with not knowing how many tickets are going to be sold when all is said and done.

    Remember Wintersun was announced the day before sail for whatever reason, no a minor add. Not sure the rhyme or reason behind it, but then this is Andy we are talking about. I am sure there was a reason, but I certainly don't know what it was...or if that same reasoning would apply to Amon Amarth

    Yup, that's the excuse they gave. IIRC, he was actually just REALLY hungover and couldn't play, so they bumped the set to later in the night.

    Thank you! Allthough you forgot Gojira from that list, so according to this we would not be missing any more 60 minute bands, just one headliner and rest of them 45 min bands.

    All fair points. However, as you point out, they're not really equal. Also, I could see how things might have come together last minute with a band like Wintersun. Amon Amarth generally plans their schedule 18 months in advance. So if they are on the boat, it's been a done deal for a long while. To just sit on that info would seem incredibly strange.

    UPDATED - added Gojira, a definite 60 minute-er. And Nightmare a definite 45.

    EDIT - moved Scar Symmetry to the 45 minute list, and GSO is a definite 45 minuter.

    Here is my take based on historical evidence for those bands that have been on before, and my own judgement for the first-timers.

    Anthrax
    Testament

    60 MINUTES

    Suffocation
    Kamelot
    Amorphis

    Annihilator
    Grave Digger
    Nile
    Haggard
    Arch Enemy
    Devildriver
    Uli Jon Roth
    Amaranthe
    Marduk
    Mors Principium Est
    Gojira

    45 MINUTES
    Death Angel (they got 60 minutes in 2011 but one 45min and one 60min in 2014)
    Equilibrium
    Kalmah
    Stuck Mojo
    Powerglove
    Dying Fetus
    Cruachan
    Omnium Gatherum
    Draconian
    Saltatio Mortis
    Xandria
    Revocation
    Stam1na
    Moonsorrow
    Unleashed
    Serenity
    Orden Ogan
    Demolition Hammer
    Vreid
    Pain
    Grave
    Psycroptic
    Avatarium
    Misery Loves Co
    Cattle Decapitation
    Nightmare
    Scar Symmetry
    Ghost Ship Octavius

    Nightmare is most likely a 45 minute set as well.

    We're all sort of coming to the consensus that Amon Amarth isn't getting announced, so if we take them out of the picture, who gets the 3rd headline slot? Gojira maybe? I still sort of think Grave Digger, to make up for them missing their 2015 pool deck set.

    Headliners and when they were announced. Interesting that the 2 latest headliners announced are the same band - VENOM. Announced with 57 days to go for 2015 and 40 days to go for 2012.

    2011
    90 min. - Blind Guardian (26 Oct), Saxon (25 Feb)
    75 min. - Amon Amarth (18 Dec 2009), Testament (26 April)

    2012
    90 min. - Nightwish (24 Jun), Venom (10 Dec)
    75 min. - Children of Bodom (16 Oct)

    2013
    75 min. - Helloween (26 Sep), Rage & Lingua Mortis Orchestra (13 Jul)

    2014
    75 min. - Fear Factory (6 Apr), Symphony X (2 Apr)

    2015
    75 min. - Apocalyptica (22 Mar), Blind Guardian (15 Mar), Venom (26 Nov)

    Could be Grave Digger.

    Purely on Last.fm stats - Devildriver and Testament have the most 'listens' after Arch Enemy and Anthrax.

    And Testament and Kamelot have the most likes on facebook after Anthrax and Arch Enemy.

    Given those stats and the fact that they got a 75 minute set in 2011, my money would be on Testament.

    Scar Symmetry is 45, but they'll probably play 2 completely different sets.
    The infamous LOLLIPOP

    70K 2011, 70K 2012, BTH 2012, 70K 2013, 70K 2014, 70K 2015, 70K 2016, 70K 2017

    Thanks for the research.

    As for your set length analysis, it looks like a fairly strong projection. Moonsorrow is the one that would surprise me if they only got 45 minutes.

    I'm pretty sure that they only got 45 minutes when they played the cruise years back. I don't feel like they've gotten much bigger since then. I'd be happy for them to have a longer set.

    Moonsorrow did have 45 minutes in 2012. I really wish they would play longer... they have a lot of material and it's all composed of very long songs. I feel like 45 minutes is almost pointless for them.

    EDIT - moved Scar Symmetry to the 45 minute list, and GSO is a definite 45 minuter.

    Here is my take based on historical evidence for those bands that have been on before, and my own judgement for the first-timers.

    Nightmare
    Scar Symmetry
    Ghost Ship Octavius


    You really think an hour for MPE, huh? That would surprise me, considering a band like Insomnium only got 45 last year.

    I really think we should consider that Gojira might get 75. There is such an enormous buzz around that band right now. Their shows have all been PACKED.

    Yeah I would guess MPE 45 and Death Angel 60. The only reason they only got 45 for that one set was cus everyone had to shorten their sets that day to make the schedule work. But, that's just my guessing.

    I think Gojira is a pretty good bet for the third headliner, but I'd put Kamelot in the running as well. Last time they played a 60 min. set, but that was in 2012, touring Poetry for the Poisoned. That was their weakest and worst-received record since Siege Perilous IMO, and they were in the middle of a protracted split with vocalist Roy Khan, with Fabio from ROF guesting as their singer on 70k. Since then they have released 2 strong, well received comeback records and established a strong new vocalist who fucking kills it live. Compared to say, Arch Enemy, they have a much better narrative for moving from the 60 to the 75 min. slot, and they are in the top ten most requested bands. And at least in Calgary, Canada, they play equivalent sized venues to Anthrax and Testament, though I'm not sure how they compare worldwide.

    Gojira is a pretty good bet too, especially with two grammy nominations, but they are pretty young for a headliner. My impression is that most 70k headliners have deeper back catalogues than Gojira's 6 LP's.

    Of course, the absence of a clear third headliner could indicate the late arrival of a certain group of Wrathful Norsemen, though such a late announcement would be peculiar. With all due respect to the impressive influence of Anthrax and Testament, Amon Amarth would be the biggest band on the boat in 2017 and to announce them so late would be very illogical. That said, 70k announcements are legendarily illogical so I get why we aren't quite counting them out yet.

    Oh I think Amon Amarth are definitely a possibility. My theory is that Andy planned on announcing them in the first 20 bands or so, but when he saw the cruise was selling so well, I think he MAY (or may not, who knows... it's Andy we're talking about :roll: ) have kept AA for a surprise à-la-Wintersun in 2015.

    That might also totally be wishful thinking! :lol:

    Gojira are definitely a candidate for a 75 minute slot. They ranked higher than Anthrax on the lineup for Download 2016.

Much like everyone else, I have my fingers crossed for that Amon Amarth announcement. However, as the days pass, that just seems less and less realistic. As a promoter, you pay a band like Amon Amarth to drive ticket sales. But with the cruise setting sail in 35 days, what impact on ticket sales would they even have?


    The only reason to announce a headliner at the last minute would be to get more people in the habit of booking in the spring/summer, before much of the lineup is announced - the "trust me, it's going to be awesome" factor. Announcing Amon Amarth at the last minute might not do much for ticket sales this year (which really don't need much of a boost anyway), but could mean more people pull the trigger early next year.


    ^^Exactly this.^^ If it happens, - for years to come people will discuss the lineup which might not be hugely enthralling but someone will say 'Remember that year that Amon Amarth were the last to be announced. get your tickets early!!"

    Personally I'm convinced it'll be John Cena. - He's always the surprise last announcement.

    If we went for Last.fm number of listeners, our 20 "top" bands would be VERY surprising (to me).
    For comparison, Amon Amarth has 542641 listeners.

    That gives us 3 x 75 minutes, 16 x 60 minutes, 37 x 45 minutes.

    If we are to be the same as 2016 then we can expect 1 x 60 minutes and 3 x 45 minutes.

    So either the final act will be a 60 minute-er, or they will be big enough to replace Gojira for the 3rd 75 minute slot.

    Just to swerve the marks. Right when they think Daniel Bryan is the 30th entrant, out comes Cena. Wait, we're not fantasy booking the rumble?

    The fact that he saved it until the end suggests it's the latter, but I'm trying to apply logic to Andy's decisions and should really know better.

    Exactly.
    Overkill and Candlemass are candidates for the last 60mn slot, but not very good ones.
    Waiting till the end to announce Overkill when you already announced Anthrax, Testament and Death Angel makes no sense.
    Waiting till the end to announce Candlemass when it's been leaked in August would be so... anticlimatic.
    I'm guessing it's going to be even more anticlimatic, either Striker or Grand Magus.

    Isn't he still out with his shoulder injury though? If he doesn't return, then Undertaker will probably win to set up his final match. But in reality, we know this will happen:

    People did the math and if his recovery went well, being back in time for the Rumble is possible.
