RATM

#1 Post by SR » Fri Nov 01, 2019 1:34 pm

So not exactly content rich, but they're back for a few cash cow shows and the upcoming election. I follow Wilk on IG and he appears to post quasi emotional musings about Rage periodically.

The picture they are using to announce this is from last Friday (or Saturday, can’t remember) in Santiago.

I didn't even know there was a Berlin Lolla. It sucks LA is only getting Coachella.

They're playing here. On a Monday.

I don't think I am going to go Rage on a Monday.

Maybe if the revolution was on a weekend, I might consider it.

Ticket prices are absurd.

Apparently scalpers are already offering tix. Don’t think we’ll know until ratm.com goes live for sales, but they’ll be up there. The first 3 or 4 shows’ proceeds prior to Coachella are going to immigrant charities.

For the Toronto show, tickets start at $125(CAD). Mid-price must be about $250ish?? I'd love to see them again, but I don't want to pay that much. I guess RATM doesn't have anti-capitalist views when it come to ticket pricing. :lol: :mad:

They are starting at $125 for all show I believe. So after fees, you're looking at $150 for nosebleeds.

Seems that the cheapest ticket is $190 and standing room floors for only $635.99. :no:

Looked into this yesterday. Might go because I've never seen RATM (but have seen Morello), but I know the sound is going to be garbage up in the $190 seats.

A second date was added, guess there is a huge demand to see them.

I decided not to bother. The music hasn't really aged well, to be honest -- especially the lyrics. I don't want to see fifty-year olds screaming "Fuck you I won't do what you tell me!"... what? You won't go in the nursing home? :eyes:

:lol:
I can't say that I ever reach for a RATM tape or CD these days. I guess I had my time with that band and now they're in my musical past. In the 90s when I had a really stressful job, I played RATM and Metallica early in the morning while I was getting ready for work. I found that the music put me in fight mode to get me through the day. :lol:
If the tickets were in the $75 range, I would go.

Same. As it stands, these prices are obscene. It really taints my perception of them.

I'll take that same money and spend on a few other bands I haven't seen.

I was sooooo excited for this tour. Blah.
