Starting to think that sonisphere may end up being cancelled this year.

I love fnm and know they could fill a headline slot. And while they have one new song, hardly think you can call that new material.

I just find whole under exposed over booked discussion funny. An overbooked band (who sells tickets consistently) is considered a boring booking while an under booked act (having ridden out the initial reunion hype) is considered a good booking.

I don't think it's about good or bad bookings, but if you've been going to festivals for a few years or more, the bands that are over-exposed do get a bit boring, at least I feel that way, and I'm sure I'm not alone.

And one new song, is new material...how can you say new material isn't well, new material? And I doubt it's all they have or all they'll have by next Summer. As for the riding out the reunion hype, well that may be true, but they're still a massive and much loved act, especially amongst the rock crowd, and if anything the reunion probably opened them up to some whole new fans. So the fact that they've not done much gig-wise recently definitely doesn't make it a boring booking in any respects...

They've only played one new song. Not many bands play more than 1 or 2 unreleased songs. Assuming the album comes out this summer, which it's supposed to, I imagine they'd play a fair number off that, and round it out with a load of hits. No problem.

I've been looking for ages for new FNM album news, is the new album due out this summer? (Thats not meant in a disingenuous way) :)

This whole conversation is speculative on the basis that FNM have been booked and are playing. :)

I heard they were going to discuss it after phase 1 of the reunion tour. But didn't hear anything beyond that.

can't see them letting download get this far without having something big. evanescence, papa roach and loads of others could play yet.

If Papa Roach and Evanescence are their big bands then they really should cancel Soni this year!

Didn't FNM Play in the UK in 2010 at all? They headlined EXIT that year....missed the world cup final to watch them!

Didn't do any UK shows in 2010, no. Just the few shows in 2009 and Sonisphere in 2012 ;)

Motley Crue could be a good shout - they would have appeared on Download's bill by now i would have thought.

Just seen that there has been a link on a Twitter account and the line that will be announced is:-

Green Day

Queen

Faith No More

Robert Plant

Opeth

Slash

Offsping

Billy Idol

My Passion

As I Lay Dying

Killing Joke

Seether

What a load of utter pish!!! I certainly won't be going if this is the case. Queen are no better than a second headliner at best. Without Freddy it's a complete waste of time. After two brilliant years, this is a massive disappointment!!!

So are Billy Idol and Killing Joke is likely to be one of the third stage headliners

Three headliners rumoured there are still a possibility though.

Are you sure you are not mixing up Billy Talent and Billy Idol?

Does it mean Slash can't do Soni though? He's not headlining main although heading 2nd might rule him out.

My understanding re: slash was yet again he was in line to play Sonisphere but Download nabbed him for a 2nd time. I have a feeling (which was the issue in 2010) Soni wanted exclusitivity and perhaps Download didn't and he was offered both Reading and Download instead of just Sonisphere? So it could be the bands in the leak are a tad out of date, but I think it's more likely to be bullshit. But saying Queen are no better than a second stage headliner at best is just stupid imo...it's QUEEN (albeit without Freddie which lessens their draw, but it's still Queen and without freddie they still sold out arenas and stadiums with ease)
