I think I'd probably pick the same as you, sans Thunder, they aren't bad but I'm not exactly a fan.

Though "New" Thin Lizzy is a real letdown, only two of the original members, and obviously no Philo.

I'm not expecting much from Lizzy, but it's one of the few bands going that my mrs will know some of the tunes. So gotta see them

Saturday - Amplifier, Caravan, Anathema, Electric Wizard

Sunday - Neurosis, and maybe a bit of DT

You should definitely watch Amplifier, they're great.

GRAVEYARD!

Don't miss 'em.

Fender Jaguar
Morley PVO +
TC Polytune
Fulltone Ultimate Octave
Boss DS2
Blackstar HT-40
Digitech Timebender
TC Trinity

All of the ones you chose save for Queensryche + Michael Monroe and Electric Wizard
EDIT: Also Michael Schenker

They are the highlighted ones which I will be seeing. There's plenty of gaps that I'm hoping to get good suggestions for. So thanks for yours

To the guy who said amplifier, I saw them in Download '06, I seem to remember they were good.

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Fair enough!

Just saying, that music taste is so individual, that my suggestions might not be of any use to you really. :P

Too bad you picked Thunder, Triggerfinger is amazing beyond words.
Tell me who's that writin'...
#19
Electric Wizard is the only one out of those that I actually like.

I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"
#28
Oh lord. Priest, Lizzy, Queensyrche, Dream Theater, Electric Wizard, Sylosis, Neurosis.

Same here, although I've never heard thunder before.
#31
I've seen Thunder loads of times and (in my opinion) they're brilliant live. The Drummer is a nutter!!!!!!
#32
as long as you see Electric Wizard, none of the other bands even matter.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#33
On Saturday i'd go see Thin Lizzy.
Only Thin Lizzy. I don't like any of the other bands playing that day D:

Sunday i'd see Jethro Tull.
Then leave. Nothing else interests me.
