That is blasphemy. Iron Maiden kicks ass. They're old as hell now and they still rock hard live. Bruce Dickinson is also one of the smartest guys in rock and roll.

Unhappy

New tour shirts. Not as awful as the text shirts, but still nothing to die for. These are the only ones available from the European store. Even the toddler shirt is marked "Out of stock." now.

I'm glad they left 2 whole months to rehearse for their big comeback.

I mean they're going to start rehearsing soon...right guys?

D'Arcy is out.
Billy is busy with his solo album.
Jimmy is tweeting about hand dryers creating “Bacterial Highways”.
James is doing something?

I don't feel there's any buzz about SP, the shows, new music...

The tour is far from SOLD OUT, but the main tour t-shirt is.

If your not size 2XL.
Which might be the avarage size of American citizens nowadays...

A band that last played together 3 years ago
With a guy they played with 18 years ago
Rehearsing for a big comeback tour in less than 11 weeks

Cool! The band is going to sound great.

The shows are fast approaching hey?

Have they still not announced the openers? It's hard to understand what tactic they're going for by waiting so long.

unless it really is nickelback and they are attempting to mitigate the blowback by letting everyone know as late as possible once they already have their tickets

Lol as insane as that sounds, I was actually contemplating that as a reason as well.

But I mean, it makes no sense. Why would they go on and bring on a group as divisive and big as Nickelback if they weren't trying to fully capitalize on the tickets they'd sell? As much as some people hate Nickelback, they're definitely a huge draw.

Here's a crazy thought:

Perhaps Corgan had a clause in the contract that Nickelback could only be announced after a certain period of time in an effort to not steal the thunder from the fact that it's a Pumpkins comeback tour. If Nickelback was announced on the bill right away, they would likely be creating more of a stir with their fans than the Pumpkins and then you just have a clusterfuck on your hands. Supposing this is the theory, this way it gives Pumpkins fans first crack at deciding what they wanna spend for what seats and once that dies down then Nickelback can be announced and THEN all the secondary markets and remaining seats available would be bought up in a heartbeat.

I'd say the rumor was nonsense if it wasn't for Billy bringing up Kroeger out of the blue and complimenting him for no reason on that instagram post. I really think that was meant as a tactical play by Corgan. This way when everyone is outraged that Nickelback is on the tour he can say "look, I've always been been vocal about appreciating his songwriting prowess, this shouldn't surprise anyone"

Billy said the Kroeger thing and praised him a few months ago because he thought it'd generate a few headlines and he likes trolling the 'consensus' of hipster sites like Consequence of Sound and Pitchfork. I actually like it when he does stuff like that because it's funny, what annoys me is when he addresses shit like the D'arcy situation with posts that he intentionally makes impossible to understand.

Please stop posting videos and photos of your kid. That should be private u sell out sausage. T shirts are urgggghhhh. I just want to hear new songs - dont wannahear 1979 or bullet for the 10th time live.
Last european tours where really crappy mostly because billy treats his fans in concerts like shit. I mean i was in munich there were only 2000 people in the olympic hall. And billy was pissed from the start. 20 years ago he could have filled the whole hall with 20000 people. What a drag he is

My AirBnB cancelled on me and it was pretty much the final straw in my indifference about this tour. I put my Montreal ticket up on stubhub for the minimum amount it'd let me just to try and recoup my money.

Someone in Montreal buy H5 pls! :v
