Post My fellow shreed connoisseurs, feel my pain!!
I really have to vent about this.

For the last two years, a major promoter in India has organised a hard rock/metal festival called Rock n' India which is a day long festival consisting of some of the biggest Indian rock bands headlined by a major international band. The first year had Machine Head and Megadeth. Last year was headlined by Iron Maiden. Both concerts were hugely successful as metal is HUGE in India (think South America, but more starved for major concerts). So we all had high hopes this year. And it was announced a couple of days ago that the headliners this year would be... wait for it... the Backstreet Boys!! Ahhhh!!!

If there are good opening bands who cares. Rock out all day and leave when Backstreet hits the stage.

At gigs like this, it's the headliner whom absolutely everyone comes to see. So these tickets are quite expensive and, living in Bangalore, I do get to see all the major Indian bands for less than one fifth the price of this ticket.

Well, one good thing about this is that they've decided to have the festival in Delhi this year as opposed to Bangalore like the last two. I think that's a sound decision because Bangalore is definitely the metal capital of India. People here would have gladly bought the most expensive tickets in their thousands to come and burn the place down.

What can one say? I'd love to see the Backstreet Boys! Those vocal harmonies are amazing! Come on man, no metal band can pull off such amazing lines with their voices like the BSB! :twisted: But really, I feel for ya man! I'm here for you! :)

Are you disappointed cause it's a rock show and BSB is headlining or just cause it's BSB? Cause I think they're pretty awesome, it'd suck though if it's a rock show and they're the main dudes cause they're not rock at all.

I'm pissed off that they're headlining what should be a hard rock/metal festival (or at least has been that way for the last couple of years). I have no problem with BSB coming and performing here (why should I). They're not my cup of tea at the best of times, but as headliners of a festival like this. I think that's unforgiveable!
