Ihsahn at ProgPower USA!
I've lurked this board for a long time, and swear I had an account, but couldn't find it, so made a new one because I know that Ihsahn has gotten a bit of love around these parts. Anyhow, I've been going to ProgPower USA for years, and while very disappointed that Arcturus won't be there, I'm very satisfied at the replacement. If you've never been to the fest before, its simply one of the best out there.
Ihsahn replaces Arcturus at ProgPower USA XII Festival
Former EMPEROR frontman, Ihsahn has been confirmed to replace Arcturus at this year’s edition of the annual progressive & power metal festival held in Atlanta, GA September 2011.
Arcturus have issued the following statement regarding their cancellation:
“Arcturus still suffer from hibernation sickness, and due to outdated parts we deeply regret to inform you: We are canceling Progpower USA. This lack of maintenance is entirely our own fault, and sincere apologies go out to the promoter and all ticket holders, especially those of you who had planned to travel far..”
ProgPower USA Promoter, Glenn Harveston, adds:
“I have no idea what the hell that statement means. I’m not going to try and figure it out either, as I have wasted enough time and effort on that “band” already. In the meantime, I would like to personally thank Ihsahn for taking the slot. His professionalism in this situation is greatly appreciated.”
Confirmed bands for ProgPower USA XII:
Evergrey (Playing “In Search of Truth” in its entirety exclusively)
While Heaven Wept
**U.S. exclusive appearances
Ticket and show information can be found at the ProgPower USA web site.
