The much rumored System Of A Down band comeback or reunion tour announcement is most likely to take place on the Monday 29th November. Along with this announcement they would also be speaking about various European rock festivals, which also includes UK festival ‘Download’. The news broke out when a fan on twitter asked them whether there is any truth in the fact that they would be playing for ‘Download’ next year, bassist Shavo Odadjian replied, “Stay tuned.”
Andy Copping, the organizer of ‘Download’ stated that the tickets for the event would be going on sale from the 3rd December. He said “Christmas comes early! Download 2011 early bird tickets on sale 9 a.m. Friday 3rd December 2010. There will be more Download info [on November 29]. Please…any specific questions about bands being announced, ticket prices, RIP, length of time for early birds etc. will be answered November 29.”
The band was asked whether this year would be their reunion year and will they be playing for rockfest this year. At this the band singer Serj Tankian stated “Shavo got married like two months ago, we were all at his wedding, and you know, we all talk, we’re friends, nothing’s changed, and we get offers to play shows, tours, whatever, and we discuss them once in a while. We have not made any decisions as of yet as to what we’re gonna do. But when we do, it’ll be quite obvious.”
It seems this year would be something really special, and if System Of A Down is really making a come back and performing at ‘Download’ then the tickets are worth to buy this year. Now it is our chance to wait and stay tuned for the announcement on the 29th November.
