Brand New at Bamboozle 2012: Truth or Rumor?
I’m seeing a lot of sites reporting that Brand New, along with 19 other acts that no one cares about, have been added to the 2012 lineup for Bamboozle. The festival’s website has no mention of it yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s complete bullshit. No mention is being made of which day they are added, but if it’s Saturday, I am super psyched about this news. Odds are they would be added to Friday night since as of now the highlights are the fading in popularity Incubus and dubstep star Skrillex. Sunday has Bon Jovi as the closer, but not much else going on, leaving it as a possibility there also. Saturday is already pretty stacked, so not sure how this addition would benefit ticket sales for the 3-day festival set for May 18th – 20th in Asbury Park, NJ. I’ll be a salty dog if they’re playing any night other than Saturday because my one day pass is already purchased. Hopefully the full confirmation or complete denial of this news will come out tomorrow. Until then, the suspense is killing me.
UPDATE: Here is a full list of the “rumored” additions to this year’s Bamboozle. Other than Brand New, not a single one of these is exciting to me, although I am sure people will be happy about Less Than Jake and maybe Buckcherry. Some sites are saying BN will be Sunday, which would crush my hopes, but make tons of sense. Fingers still crossed for Saturday.
