I just can't trust him anymore. I'm sure he can sound sincere if he wants

I wished that "Mancow" would've shut up and let Billy talk about D'Arcy - he was saying something like "there's a time and a place, and this just wasn't the right time". I would've liked to have him have the opportunity to say if there was a chance the time might be in the future.

As an aside, I found that Mancow guy really horrible to listen to.

I doubt it. I think it's gonna be more like Zwan

Radiohead tickets are indeed 99$ on presale (for MSG).

What is a realistic price for SP for the same venues? 70?

No price. It's absurd for him to think he can fill that place. There really is no price point in my head where he can cover the cost of MSG and make money. He would either need to offer prices so low he would lose money or offer a price too high to bring in people who aren't really fans of the band to fill the place.

I honestly can't figure out who bankrolled and greenlit this tour. After Oceana and him being stuck in larger venues because of that stupid globe he insisted on using most promoters won't go near him.

I feel he either had to do some deal where he takes added financial liability for the tour or he found someone really delusional to bankroll this.

cmon ... how many times have we seen this heard this act before.

the very fact he's sounding humble talking to a POS like mancow who posted the darcy pic in the first place and for some reason in this interview feels a need to act like she's a horrible person just proves how fake and classless billy is.

i don't mind a dude selling out. i don't even mind someone being hypocritical about selling out.

i do mind being a dick who goes on alex jones and supports trump and compares BLM to KKK and tells his own fans they suck and makes big promises that never deliver.

Yet, an improvement. If that happened 5 years ago I'm sure he would've reacted differently, in a bad way.

Why did Corgan talk at ManCow Muller's radio show two days after the disgusting photo content at all? To underline the reputation of Muller without saying himself bad words about D'arcy? One could think so, because he could have taken the opportunity to say that he disliked the D'arcy content or that D'arcy's friend said, she got attacked.

This is to me just another, passive aggressive, way of Corgan to express that D'arcy couldn't be on the tour.

THIS.. I had actually stopped listening to SP for over a year because of his BLM comments and left the FB fan groups because they became alt right instead of alternative. As a black woman I'm still wrestling with all of it & for the first time in 24 years I didn't attend a BC or SP show. I didn't buy Oogly Boogly. And I don't plan to.. I'm Natalie Imbruglia Torn..

It wasn't BLM, it was SJW. Big difference. The former is rooted in social injustice while the latter needs to be cut off from their trust fund and get a job.

The Salon.com piece: wow, that was actually a smart and informed discussion on D'arcy and women's role in SP. I thought it was going to feminist circle jerk (finger?) hit piece of misinformation and reverse sexism meant to hurt credibility and ticket sales. I'm surprised.
