Yeah but don't you do that at your job too?

If Noel is one of the best for Corgan:

Why don't they take the chance on the tour to do something together?

To paraphrase a guy in the Ken Burns Baseball documentary, "We could be down there...there's not much separating me from Willy Mays". It's the same thing here - when there's amps on stage, there's a relatability there. Everyone who's ever played guitar has sat in their bedroom with an amp dreaming of playing on a big stage with a big Marshall stack.

When you go see a band live and they're doing some wanky thing where the amps are offstage in an iso booth, it kills the magic
Hmmmm i donít give a shit about the amps, for some reason, even tho i am old and have kicked around in bands myself and am otherwise into the crudity/purity of vulgar expression as the throbbing core of rock music

Guess i just wanna hear some bitchin tones that donít hurt my ears, these days

And the tones have been friekin great lately imo

having the amps iso'd isn't as big of a deal as people think - in most situations sure, but with the type of venues they've been playing you're going to be hearing most of the amplification via the front of house speakers anyway. even in the mid-90s Corgan was doing that guitar-to-speaker feedback shit on floor monitors, not the cabs themselves

Wow, all the hits plus some generous bathroom breaks! LMAO everyone's gonna be impatient and drunk for that whole 8-12 section. Plus a super long "tr00 fanz" song he can't sing anymore that'll have people flooding out early to beat traffic on their way home (if BSBT didn't already get them the fuck outta there!)

Groupon had Toronto tix for $17 the other day and I noped the fuck outta that one!

Honestly Tiberius, GLOW, and Superchrist are what I'm most excited for in that set

JC playing a Monuments part, GLOW has a nice groove and new breakdown vamp section, Superchrist has some killer drum stuff

Stuff like Cherub or Tonight, I'd rather pop on Pinkpop 94 or Dusseldorf 96 than see Corgan trying to croak those out

Also I apparently just bought a fucking press pass for $163?

Jesus ticket sales must be poor if they're just dumping press passes out

Also if anyone gives me shit I will 100% be like 'Yeah I'm with Netphoria'. "*What's that?*" 'You sound like a casual fan'

Could you make an official laminated Netphoria press badge for the show?

Whilst everyone else is wearing their knock-off zero tees, you'll have the proper credentials to prove you are a troo fan.

Wow, they're really knocking down the prices of those tickets. I may have contemplated traveling to a show if I knew prices would get knocked so low.

The band must been disheartened with the low sales, especially considering the big success of the arena tour just a year ago... And then one considers how they have 2 household names on tour with them. What a shit show

There is also someone who doesn't need his for a while:

"I came very close to running into him at the KROQ Christmas show last December. I was in the VIP press area, and they had an area where they were interviewing people playing. I think Billy and James were interviewed maybe 15-30 minutes after me and my friend went to our seats. I'd still interview him, but I won't go to a show ever again as a fan unless he apologizes to me, which will NEVER happen."

Good show last night. 12,000 people in attendance according to Billy.

Drunk middle-aged guy next to me was grooving to pretty much everything and didn't seem to be familiar with much past MCIS, even Eye.

James really does bring KoM to life live

BC tooted out the first few notes of Come As You Are before launching into Bullet

Doing a call-response with the audience during GLOW seems to be a thing now. Billy got James to do the "Cmon" call at one point all awkwardly:

JI: Come on, come on....this is just wrong. This should be you, not me!...we should get Paul Stanley from KISS to jump in here....I'm gonna take my horse to the old town road..."

BC (trying to restrain laughter): "James, I love you, but I ain't feelin' that shit!"

JI: "I love that song, it's cool as hell!"

And yeah, TAFH was fucking senescent
