Nothing was funnier than them watching “It’s So Cold In The D”
I don’t know, I saw the Pumpkins live this month and the new stuff from Oceania sounded great. Great as in much better than anything titled “The King Of Limbs” was this year
I’m sure it will be breathtaking as usual.
DISCLAIMER: I like Springsteen but am in no means some sort of super-fan boy. I call bullshit when it’s deserved.
However, I thought it was common practice that a certain amount of seats were held back for family/friends/contest winners, etc. It’s not like they are putting these seats on secondary sites and making all the profit (which is what Ticketmaster/TicketsNow is doing and, thus, the controversy). We still are unsure whether the artist gets a cut of the TicketsNow sales or not (many sources say the artist does, but it has not been confirmed). However, these seats held back (as reported) were never intended to be sold publicly anyways.
I was just curious as to why people jump up and down when an “indie” band breaks through. How are GB any different from some of the other acts on there? I’m sure they have a manager, tour manager, merch people, roadies, etc. helping them out. Not saying there’s anything wrong with that and I would suspect that one would NEED all those people to help further their career. However, make no mistake, there is NOTHING independent about these guys, or Arcade Fire, or Animal Collective, etc.
Do you wear earplugs? If so, what kind? I’ve been going to too many shows (I’m 25) in life and I’ve started to notice a ringing in my ears. What kind do you recommend?
If NIN is not putting aside any of these tickets, than how are they already up for sale. Does the conversation go like this?
LIVE NATION/TM: Hey dudes, do you want to put any of these tickets on the re-seller market from the get-go?
NIN: Uh, does that mean that fans won’t have access to them through the pre-sale?
LIVE NATION/TM: Absolutely! They’ll actually appear on StubHub/TM before the on-sale meaning we can start making the $$$ right away!!!
NIN: Uh, no, we’re going to keep those for our own pre-sale
LIVE NATION/TM: Psych! Just kidding, we have access to those tickets anyways (not you) so we’re putting them up for auction. Your fans can have the third-tier seats, I guess.
How does Billie Joe manage to get younger and younger over the years?
People make this festival out to be a WAY bigger deal than it actually is. Also, I hope Katy Perry does headline, so everyone who takes it way too seriously has too suffer.
