NORDIC FEST 2010 - Deliverance update & more program updates

Postby XeNoMoRpH » Mon Oct 25, 2010 14:29

Unfortunately, Jimmy P. Brown from Deliverance has been hindered to come to Norway due to passport problems. He will be replaced on stage by Eli Prinsen (the Sacrificed) in addition to a Norwegian session-guitarplayer.

[i]UPDATE:
You can read the official statement from Jimmy here - http://untombed.com/?p=958

Also, the program on http://www.nordicfest.no has been updated with times when each band plays.

There is NO WAY you can have Deliverance perform without Jimmy. Jimmy IS Deliverance. You can have a Deliverance cover band or whatever but no Jimmy = no Deliverance.

i didn't think it was possible to not come to norway because of passport problems..? o_O whenever i travel i always feel like we're the most lazy nation ever when it comes to things like that.. but i guess it might be different when you're not actually a norwegian citizen. XD

that sucks, though o_O

If you would have booked Alice Cooper and the man himself wouldn't be able to come, would you have the band perform without him? Put Alice's makeup on some local guy and hope no one notices any difference?

Is there no way he can fix those passport problems?

I feel I should clear up my stance a bit. I mean no offense to the other guys in the band and I think and hope they agree with me that without Jimmy it just won't be Deliverance. I also don't want to cancel anyone's trip or performance. If the guys want to come over and play for us instead of Nordic Fest being one band short, that's great. It's the fact that the official festival website states that Deliverance will be playing with Jimmy replaced that I think is an insult to both Deliverance and the fans. You can not claim to have Deliverance performing if Jimmy isn't present. You should announce that Deliverance unfortunately had to cancel and that another band formed specially for this occasion will be performing some Deliverance songs instead. I don't know if the replacement band will be good or bad, that remains to be seen. I do however know that it won't be Deliverance without Jimmy.

All-in-all Jimmy's cancellation is a very sad and disappointing situation and I hope it can be saved somehow and I appreciate it if you're doing your best to work things out for the better.

We are very sorry as well, but Jimmys statement is that this is still Deliverance playing, even though it is without Mr. Deliverance himself. So please don't be angry at us, or the guys comming, because they really have tried their best to work it all out. But in the end it didn't. Sorry! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Thanks for your post Oddmund. I had a feeling Jimmy might have encouraged the band to perform as Deliverance even without him. It's still wrong though and Jimmy should realize it. If I'd be the arranger I wouldn't go along with it. The fans know it's not Deliverance, the band members know it's not Deliverance, the concert arrangers know it's not Deliverance, even the poor sod who gets the task to announce the band onto stage knows it's not Deliverance... yet we all have to pretend that it's Deliverance just because Jimmy thinks we should? How is that right?

It seems strange that a passport can't be somehow arranged when there are still several days to the festival, but I don't know the details so I'll just say this: very sad. :(

Woah, that is sad news. But to see it positive: I'm glad it's not the whole band of Deliverance that had to cancel, you know. We still have that great music live at Nordic Fest. It's just the vocals and the frontman being different....
