    Is AFI headlining? I must drastically underestimate how popular they are.

    He wrenches on it. He thinks it's his.

    AFI isn't playing Chicago with RA (because they're opening for FOB at Wrigley), so I hope that means AFI at Riot Fest!

    This is a Rise Against headliner.

    Two bands I've always wanted to see, in one fell swoop :teethsmile:

    Also Anti-Flag is the opener for this tour

    What an awesome lineup. I have never seen AFI live, so I will absolutely be taking the opportunity.

    Nope. Prestigious

    I may be underestimating Rise Against and AFI's popularity in 2018, but I think they're going to have a hard time filling up Red Rocks? Luckily it's on a Saturday so that may help.

    Dam now I’m really bummed this is missing MI. This is an awesome tour.

    very frustrating seeing all these activists go on a white men tour

    The wording of the title is weird. It's an RA headliner for sure.

    can't tell if you're trolling or if im out of touch with the fragiles on here these days.
  14. Cody Prestigious

    if my post makes me a "fragile," then i am proud to be one. women and poc belong on every tour, now more than ever.

    what point are you trying to make? so what a tour with a bunch of white guys in a band big deal. does every single tour have to include a person of color or woman? Its so absurd to me people get offended that a bunch of bands decide to tour together and someones upset by the race and gender of the members of the bands. Literally it is what it is.

    I don't know a single person that has this kind of thinking. most people think about the bands playing the show and if they like them not the racial and gender make up of each band member. i would never know people have thoughts like this about shows if i didn't come here.
  17. Cody Prestigious

    i'm definitely not offended, so I don't know where you got that impression. i'm more a mixture of bemused and surprised? this tour will surely be successful, and i don't wish it anything but that

    i am thinking about the bands playing the show. they're three quartets of white dudes. idk, not trying to paint you as anything negative, this is just me (like i stated simply and clearly before) being frustrated by three groups of white male activists touring with a bunch of other white guys
  18. Iamhollywood315


    Im not trying to start a whole charade or tell you you're wrong or anything but this concept of thinking is so new to me and something i've never acknowledged or thought about before so its harder for me to understand where you come from.

    I’m really not meaning to be an asshole here, but maybe it’s a good thing that your thinking is being challenged to move outside of the box you’re comfortable in. It’s not about being offended, it’s about wanting more representation on tours, especially with bands who promote activism such as these. Also, you’re much more likely to have an active and insightful conversation where you might take something away from it when you don’t immediately name call and condescend those who think differently than you do.

    Come on....really? After ALL the positive things that these 3 bands have been raising awareness about for years? You're REALLY gonna critique them on that point? These bands are likely all friendly with each other and have wanted to tour with each other for a while. Stop making drama where there is none.

    Seeing Anti-Flag play an arena is going to feel weird. Pat won't get to do his drums-in-the-crowd thing.
  22. I don’t think you’ve been listening to the bands’ messages if you think they’d considers other advocating for representation “drama.”

    So fucking disappointed this isn't coming to the DMV, this is an insane tour. AFI is always amazing live and I haven't had the chance to see Rise Against or Anti-Flag yet. Really hope they add an additional date

    I don't think advocating for representation is drama at all. I DO feel that policing and putting a microscope on simple things like tour pairings is unnecessary and losing site of the actual issue.

    Would really love to see AFI live. Miss them every time they come to Chicago...
