Just confirmed for Wacken Open Air as well.
Yeah, got 5 hours left to decide on going, haha.
I will catch the show at Copenhell, as I'm going to that every year anyways.
Leaning heavily towards seeing them at Copenhell over Wacken... Never been to Denmark yet, and I think that would be a better Fate set to see out of the two. My hope is that maybe Michael Denner will even make an appearance, being on the home turf and all. No tickets on sale as of yet, will be checking frequently; how much are they usually?
Copenhell will start to sell tickets in October. I don't know the exact date yet. I don't know about price, as the prices have inflated heavily over the last few years. My guess would be 200$ for the 3 day pass. More if you need camping, but as it is so close to Copenhagen many people actually go home/go to hostels.
That's a big part of the appeal to me - I've never been to Copenhagen, and I'd love to stay in town and see the city, instead of camping out in a middle of nowhere for 3 days. I've been to Germany several times, and going again for Keep It True in April, and it'd be great to travel to a new place. Also, as I'm saying, to see Mercyful Fate in Denmark would be ace.
Wacken is most certainly the better deal if that's what you're after.
$200 for a fest pass isn't bad. Maryland Deathfest is $250. Wacken's, like, 230 Euros. Yeah, there's a buttload of bands, but also 75 000 people tent camping in a fucking field, and I really just want to see Mercyful Fate and hate camping :D
I would also expect either Sweden Rock (Awesome festival) or Hellfest (never been) to book Mercyful Fate.
I also heard Barcelona.
As for Denner, I've seen him make an appearance at a few shows with the King here, so it's not impossible. But yeah, it's always a treat to watch KD at home.
Those are my principal draws - first night of the comeback, home show, Denner. That's why I'd rather see the CopenHell show.
Cool!!! Let me know if you decide to go for Copenhell, and want to meet up and say hi :-)
