Blog: When Festival Bookings Go Bad 2
Yesterday we brought you Daphne & Celeste and 50 Cent at Reading and today it’s all about My Chemical Romance and Lethal Bizzle at Download! We fear for Bjorn Again at Sonisphere!
We love Lethal B around these parts. He came in to chat to us on the Hammer podcast about his (at the time) upcoming Download performance and we broke it to him that he might have piss thrown at him. It’s fair to say he’s had happier moments.
Here’s how his entrance was greeted when he hit the stage at Donington. We just hope he stayed urine-free.
No strangers to being bottled, My Chemical Romance took a bit of a pasting when they hit the stage at Reading in ’06. At Reading, they’re a little bit more forgiving than we are at Download though, aren’t they?
They are if you look at this shaky footage of the opening 16 seconds of MCR’s Download headline performance in 2007. Ouch.
Sonisphere will be headlined by Metallica and Linkin Park and will take place on August 1st – 2nd at Knebworth. Also on the bill will be Heaven & Hell, Nine Inch Nails, Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Alice In Chains, Mastodon, Anthrax, Airbourne, Corey Taylor and Killing Joke.
