70K 2018 Rumours and Predictions Thread

by Pellaz » Wed May 31, 2017 12:27 pm

Thanks to bodomdragon for pointing out in the wishlist thread that we were missing this thread for next year, and it's always fun to speculate. Heck, at least a few of our predictions here will probably come true! :twisted:

Here's the first one, cross-posted:

bodomdragon wrote:Gloryhammer and Civil War just announced a european tour which will take place along January until the 27th. Very convenient dates, they could do the cruise right after that.


....and we're off to the races! :headbanger:

Adding in those from 2017 that didn't end up on the lineup, removing those that did and those rumours that were more of the 'because they are touring around the time of the cruise' rumours:

Aborted - were asked twice (Barge & 2014) but could not make it before. They keep Jan-Feb free to be able to do it.
Accept - one member was on other than the Victory guys to check out the boat previously and see if they wanna do it

Morgoth - told a cruiser they would be on broad for 2016
Primordial - told a cruiser they would be on broad for 2016

Did an interviewed with one of the Metal Church guys a few days. They love doing cruises.

I believe Alan blogged about this last year and said it was very unlikely Primordial would do a cruise again.

We can probably put Gojira on here, hey? Would have played if not for the family emergency, seemed to feel really bad about not being able to at the last minute this year.

I'm detecting a whole lot of potential "win" in that post, Statsman. :beerbang:

Also: Scale the Summit -- responded today on Facebook when I mentioned 70K 2018 with "We would love to do it!"
I'm sure they're not everyone's thing and they could easily play Cruise to the Edge instead, but I like 'em, damnit. :twisted:

Yes, absolutely. If I were Andy I'd announce them in the first batch. (But, as we know, no-one is Andy...except maybe Andy. :lol: )

I could be totally wrong, but I kind of feel like that was a bogus excuse. We already know that the Nile excuse was bogus. They didn't play because Dallas had exited the band, and they weren't ready to announce it yet. Either way, Gojira has absolutely exploded in the past year, and I feel they have probably outgrown this event.

What kind of dicks do you have to be to fake your brother being in mortal peril to get out of playing a metal cruise that people bought tickets solely to see you play on?

I get that... it's just odd. People said that this has happened several times where bands drop last minute, and it seems like the same exact excuse is given, and even phrased the same way. There was no statement from Gojira, and it seemed like they remained pretty active on social media and playing shows like nothing was wrong around that time. Again, maybe I'm totally wrong.

So bands frequently agree to play a cruise, then claim that a member's brother is in mortal peril to avoid playing it?

There was no statement from Gojira, and it seemed like they remained pretty active on social media and playing shows like nothing was wrong around that time. Again, maybe I'm totally wrong.


Umm....yeah.

According to reports at the time (and I think Gojira DID release a statement at the time, anyone remember?), they were concerned about performing on a cruise on a ship halfway across the world from Europe with no quick or easy way to return in case they needed to get back in a hurry. With good reason: it's difficult (and expensive) to evac from a ship at sea by helicopter, and sometimes it's physically impossible due to distance.
Performing shows in Europe would not have that problem since, if needed, they could get to their ailing relative's bedside within hours.
FWIW, I think that's totally understandable, and I'd love to see them get a second chance at 70K.

Knowing a bit about the Gojira guys, I really don't believe in a bogus excuse at all. That's one of the very last bands I see doing this.

Thanks Pellaz

I would add
- that NeObliviscaris want to play cruise. They were very disappointed Andy did not ask them in 2016 when they were on tour in Florida

- Also VADER wants to come back

- and Immolation

I'm quite certain they did, or at least that Andy released one for them. That's why I'm quite certain it's family. Lemme see if I can go on a forums dive at least.

EDIT: Gojira didn't make a post on their facebook page, so I guess the band can't confirm or deny such things, but here's the post Andy made.

Andy wrote:Sailors! This is your Skipper speaking. Unfortunately, I have some bad news to share with you.

GOJIRA will not be joining us onbroad next week. This is due to a serious medical issue of a very close family member that requires them to get back home at a moment's notice should the situation get worse. This is possible while they are on tour in their home country, but not while they are on a ship at Sea at the other end of the world. I am sure I speak for all of us when I send this message to France: Nous souhaitons de tout cœur beaucoup de force et de confiance, ainsi qu'un bon rétablissement!


Still though, if that's the excuse the Skipper gives for a band that backs out last minute because they're divas, he needs to stop doing that. I'd much rather a band say "nah we're too big for our britches" than lie about someone they care about being really sick.

And I'm also adding, the Duplantier brothers lost their mother last year (or two years ago, can't remember exactly). So the chances of them using a serious medical condition as an excuse not to come is close to zero, this is not something they're going to play with lightly.

One of the Battle Beast guys recently told me it would be a dream come true for them to play on 70K. That doesn't mean anything, of course. Andy books who he wants to book.

There might be more -- or less -- to that story, but....yeah. No question they'd like to play and I'd love it if they could. They're from Australia, though, so it wouldn't be something Andy or NeO could do lightly. Maybe schedule a US tour using the 70K dates as an anchor? They were SPLENDID when they headlined here; really great show and a bigger crowd than I'd expected.

I can't speak to the leak, as I have no knowledge of that. I did an interview with Kurdt Vanderhoof a few weeks back, where he said they loved doing the cruise in 2013 and would be open to returning.

Statsman copied an old rumors list from the prior year. His note about Metal Church would have been from 2016 lineup speculation and referring to the 2015 cruise. If I remember correctly, the actual leak would have been in 2014, during the leadup to the 2015 cruise. Bravewords posted that Metal Church was to be on the cruise before any announcement from UMC. Band members had the date/information posted on their social media when that article came out. Then the prior vocalist (Ronny Munroe) left the band. All information disappeared & they ended up not being onbroad. In 2016, they were booked during the same time-frame for the MORC.

Dirkschneider recently released 2018 North American tour dates. They start on February 23, 2018. They still have availability during the dates of the cruise.

'One of the Battle Beast guys recently told me it would be a dream come true for them to play on 70K.'

That would literally make it for me. The other bands could be Duran Duran and Bay City Rollers and I'd still be happy.

Ok I'm new here. Thinking about coming to 70k this year with my wife. Have few things to ask and want to give my list.
1. How much will it be for 2 good drinkers?
2. Do the bands run 24 hours?
3. Is it as easy as it looks in the video's?

wish list
At The Gates, Broken Hope, Carcass, Dimmu Borgir, Exodus, Fatal Aggression, Flotsam And Jetsam, Grave, Hypocrisy, Kreator, Lizzy Borden, Morgoth, Nevermore Reunion, Sacred Reich, Testament, Venom, Wednesday 13, Death Angel, Dark Angel, Hirax,

1. I believe it is like $6-7 a beer, that sound right to everyone?

2. Close. The last show typically goes on at around 5:00am, and shows start back up at 10:00am, so there is about a 4 hour break in the action (Though there is karaoke going on during that time if just want to keep going)

3. Absolutely. Once you get on board, aside from money for drinks and merch, everything else is taken care of and included for the most part. Once your on board, just decide who you want to see and show up at the right time and place, and there it is. Using my un-offical Phone/Android app on board will help with that part (70K Bands). The only show that gets remotely 'too crowded to see' would be the Jamming with Waters all star jam...but even this has never been a huge issue if you want to see it.

I've seen griping on CruiseCritic that Royal has increased their alcohol prices fleetwide...probably to encourage people to buy one of their drink packages...so prices for us might be a bit higher in 2018. Naturally, WE don't get those packages during 70K. (They'd go broke. :lol: )

Back in March, 70K asked who was on our wishlist via Twitter. I responded with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, and the band replied with "Stay Tuned." So they are a possibility for 2018. :D

Grey Skies Fallen posted on Facebook about 70K... now, they might just be thinking about attending as fans, but they're an amazing band who'd do great onbroad, and who somehow still fit the Cripper award category despite existing since the 90s (just criminally unknown)

Freedom Call would like to be back (Lars told me in February, when I met them at Pratteln, that he was jealous when he knew that I was back from the cruise :lol: )
Few members of Derdian told me that it would be a dream for them to be on the ship, but still waiting even I request them since 2012, before my first cruise :cry:
Veonity would also like to be there :deathhorns:

So Havok just posted on FB that they're not on this year, but they want to be on. While I'm not as into their current album as I hoped I'd be, I'd still love to help out in that endeavor. :P

And in all actuality, maybe they're on but had to cover their asses? Because what they posted was just the 70k Tons logo. The other info came as a reply to somebody asking if they're on.
