Sadly I'm guessing due to poor ticket sales.

This show was only announced quite recently on August 22:

The arena holds 5000 people:

With only a month onsale, I really doubt they sold close to 5000 in Boise, especially with other northwest folks more likely going to the 2 Washington shows and/or Vancouver show.

That breaks my heart that Lil Wayne and Evanescence can both play there no problem.

I feel bad for small market fans who get their show canceled. It's not like LA who will get the Pumpkins on virtually every tour.

If that was the case why didn't they just move the show to a smaller venue ?

i think it is most likely due to the poor ticket sales. why would you cancel a sold out show?

I was thinking about going to this show too since i have friends up there I could visit. Thank goodness i never got tix.

i guess as long as it's not canceled due to "family problems"...

ughh.. I think the zwan breakup was way more upsetting for me than sp's. SP just seemed ready to die on the machina tour and it seemed obvious... whereas zwan was all hugs and kisses in their magazine interviews, the rumors of the djali zwan dvd in september and then recording the third batch of zwan songs after the summer tour .... plus all the rumors of the various incarnations of zwan and hearing how organic and natural the band was... all down the drain and it was months before even a statement was made... family problems. yeah.

stupid. why did they try to book a big ass arena only one month out when they could have just as easily sold out The Big Easy in one second and had a magical/legendary show? it's so maddening sometimes.

obviously sp2 broke up because of the immoral behaviour of some members. this isn't official yet, but i heard jeff and lisa went for an icecream after the show. if i were billy and found out about this i would at least beat them up or even kill them, but he is too much of a gentleman. instead he chose to cancel the shows and invent another britney excuse for the end of sp2.

soon on mtv.

I love you Bram. But Billy is right in this case...he simply won't allow a bassist who is not skeletal thin in the band

If this place is as small as you make it sound like, then there would be little financial reason to travel there I would think. And after all, money is what ultimately got the show canceled in the first place.

Im guessing they sold 2-3 thousand seats at qwest so they couldn't provide tickets to every one if they moved it there. The pumpkins at the big easy would have been great though its very similar dimensions to the metro in Chicago. I'll be seeing Interpol at the Big easy next Month.

I am going to the Salt lake show and have 3 extra floor tickets if anyone is interested.

:rofl: i knew he had tickets, but i'm sure he could always invite more people he knows in the area.. you did already see BTL.. but it would be cool to see gossamer again

Yes, I was sort of expectign Gossamer in Vegas... unfortunately the cards did not fall into place. Still not really sure why. I've yet to post my complete Vegas review; will try to do that tonight.

I'd just like to see another GA show, since Normal, IL on 10/4 is a seated theatre and I only have 16th row center (poor me!!! ;) ).

If they don't play Gossamer in IL, then I'll have to start looking at east coast shows... it's been a few years since I've been to Philly, and I'm always up for an authentic cheesesteak along with my Pumpkins...
