I'm extremely surprised to hear it's due to ticket sales. I mean Queen / Kiss / Faith No More? Even Marilyn Manson? That's a varied lineup that would usually pull a crowd.

Cunt biscuits. Only recently booked my flights and everything. Well since those Ryanair pricks aren't in the business of changing/refunding flights does anyone know of anything decent on in London that weekend?

Was so psyched to see FNM again. Sad

I'm seriously worried about what this means for the two Mastodon warm-up shows in the Academy. Was at Sonisphere last year and it was brilliant. Don't think the headline acts were really up to it. Bought my tickets for Download, only show in town this year.
