That pic Jimmy posted of his kit on instagram is weirding me out:


I agree with what fuzzy said even more:

It's just....weird that I'm seeing that, you know. I love the Mellon Collie tour and Ruby, and I think part of that is trying to figure out what drums Jimmy was hitting in the interlude through weird 20 year old VHS rips. If he were to post on instagram 'got these great new timbales from Latin Percussion for the tour' it'd ruin the magic a bit

rock is dead

lol

Yeah, he was. I remember seeing him at one of the Asheville shows and he was skinny as a rail. He strongly resembles Red Forman when he's that thin (probably because he was scowling through the whole show).

nah rock is perfectly fine. there are tons of artists who don't use social media and stay safe in the shadows of eldritch yore. the dudes from drudkh have never given an interview. varg doesn't play live. al cisneros doesn't even own a phone.

Are the red dots the more expensive seats? What's the difference with the blue dots?

The red ones mean someone is trying to sell them at markup, but they've been sold already at least once.

Solara is SUCH a bad song. Why would a rational person pay to see them play Solara and some lame songs such as BWBW

Ya know, I had no idea that the Oceania tour tried to be an arena tour. I thought that was only oversees. When I saw it the show was at mid/large theater.

The band hires LiveNation, but they ain't takin' much direction from the band. They're a powerhouse and they must have crunched some numbers somewhere that pointed to this being profitable for them and it probably will be

They wanted to move the show to small theaters because it failed to sell. But Bobo would not give up the globe.

Promoters have far less power than apologists like to give them.

No the white seats are sold. The blue seats are empty and the red seats are sold, but are for sale by the person who bought them.

living in the pass.

have seen a lot of stage shows in the past couple of years, but never one with 25 year old footage being used for the full nostalgia effect or whatever that is supposed to be.

but thanks for reminding people for 2 hours about the band they once loved, just in case.

it might be nice if you are on the nosebleed seats. or anywhere that aren't the first 20 rows. maybe? karaoke nights with video.

it's just so baffling to me (yes, still!) that you bother with a screen show and tour crew this size - and then hand over the video production to Linda Iamblind Strawdingle.

the calculation for years now looks like

- merch (airplane mode and people who can't tell a font from their ass)
- graphic design SP overall (see above)
- album design (see above plus Strawdingle)
- photo shoots (amateur)
- videos (see above)
- now add tour members (Katie Howard Willing protégé Cole, son of who the fuck cares)

done by absolute hacks not worth a cent as long as they are dedicated ass kissers and do it for as little money as possible. interesting brand system.
