I don't know why this struck me the other day. I guess I had just played a song by the band or something.  Anyways, especially around festival season you get many different possible lineups. The band in question in this blog was the very first we began talking to, but their tour ended up going a different way.

Now let's remember that at the 2015 Big Purple Party we had Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, In This Moment, All That Remains, We Are Harlot, Crobot and Upon A Burning Body.

The whole festival almost had a different flavor because the initial co-headliner was supposed to be the legendary...Judas Priest.

No matter what you're into, it would have been a treat to have the leather legends on hand. Well, hopefully we'll get 'em next time. Also, I don't know if I mentioned it before, but the initial headliner for the 34th annual FMX Birthday Bash was Godsmack.
