BTW my view is if you think they sold out (which they did since they signed to a Sony sub instead of Indy when they first broke)...stop giving them your time...fuck em! Ya know, like we do with janes... :lolol:

PS We're all sellouts in some way or another...

That's true. My kiddo and friends are planning a trip to NM or somewhere on the pre Coachella. I wonder if it's similar to me when I was young looking to see The Who in '81 or any other band who's best years were behind them? That show was informally (maybe formally) billed as "out with the old, in with the new" with T-Bone Burnett and The Clash opening. They sounded so different with Kenny Jones on drums and Pete playing a tele with much softer tones than the Les Paul and SG he used for the dirtier versions of the songs I was used to from recordings. Still, I'm glad I went.

I don't understand why the'y're so in demand, 2 x MSG and all that. They're basically a one trick pony, heavy riffs combined with angry Zach, If I attended a show I'd be so fuckin bored after about 20 minutes I think.

The other day I listened to Bomb track and a few others by them and after that Cemetery Gates. What a difference. RATM is all masculine energy all the time whereas Pantera on Cemetery has a great mix between masculine and feminine energy, like Jane's has, much more interesting and pleasant to listen to.
Battle of Los Angeles shows a lot more maturity and varying styles/emotions.

It's why I never understand people saying their debut s/t is their best. It's fairly one note.

Born of a Broken Man is a particular favorite on BoLA.

Well the FF tix are going on sale. It appears they range from 85-130 in the upper deck to over 2 bills for the better seats. Maybe these are scalped? Can't stand them, but I bet they'll sell out in minutes.

I'm not a Foo fan at all. I bought their first album but lost interest after that. People love them and they keep selling out their shows. :noclue:

Same. But the second album had some good songs. They changed from a scrappy punk-ish band to some kind of 70s classic rock band shortly thereafter.

I think depending upon proximity to the stage they ranged from 85-130.

$125 before fees is still a ridiculous amount to charge for nosebleeds. That's easily $150 after fees. For one seat. For two bands.

That is without a doubt the highest price I've ever seen charged for the worst seats at a big venue for a rock concert.

If I had to guess which band would have been the one to charge more than I've ever seen before it sure as shit would not have been Rage Against the Machine.
Pearl Jam charges that. And typically doesn't even have an opening band anymore.

But... it's Pearl Jam. They play for 3 damn hours.

I doubt RATM is doing more than 90 minutes.

Charity or not, that's a 75 dollar ticket at best.
