Just so much weed being smoked at that show.
There were people in front of me double fisting blunts... literally so much weed at this show
I guarantee you he legally can't drop off the tour or something
Watch, now he’ll just play a 20 minute set and bounce each night just because he needs to fulfill his contract
He was probably just high as fuck and got too honest, haha.
I'm significantly less excited to see him now knowing that he doesn't wanna be there, though
A tour of this magnitude with as much money is in the line 100% guarantee there is an iron clad contract
SKIBA X WEEZY collaboration confirmed 4 BANGOR!
He can 100% drop the tour whenever he feels like he wants to but like mentioned there’s plenty of clauses I assume in the contract where he’ll owe live nation a lot of money.
Clearly, there are instances Where the promoter knows it’s beyond anyone’s control like family emergencies and so forth but all the tours are insured for every little detail!
tom would've sold those extra 18,000 tickets
... do aliens pay in USD, or a different currency? Bitcoins, perhaps?
By the time this tours over we will have ran up on Area 51 and freed the aliens, allowing Tom to re-focus his efforts on Blink. He will join the band for the last string of dates, which will all sell out.
*checks when Detroit is*
I’ll allow it!
LA and Irvine both have half price tickets for this on Goldstar. Can't be selling too well if both SoCal shows are on Goldstar.
I def don’t know the LA market, it’s obvs a huge metro, but that’s two shows near each other and Blink just did EotS at Back to the Beach Fest in late April which I’m sure doesn’t help things.
So whats new with the tour? Lil Wayne still on?
Not much and yes.
I attended the show on Saturday in Bangor.
Both Blink and Lil Wayne sounded great. I'm not a fan of Wayne by any means, but he brought a ton of energy and genuinely seemed to be enjoying himself. He said multiple times throughout the set that "this is the kind of energy I'm looking for on this tour."
Blink was great, as usual. A much shorter set than I'd like, but there's a lot going on and I'm not going to complain knowing that I got to hear Enema played in full. I've wanted to hear "Anthem" live forever.
The Waterfront is not my favorite venue, and that was solidified even more on Saturday. They staffed one poor middle-aged woman to patrol the entire back guardrail of the pit. People were hopping the guardrail all night, knocking people down, kicking drinks, etc.
It doesn't help that they have a consistent tendency to over-serve alcohol. The result was a massive cluster of heavily intoxicated frat bros sneaking their way into the pit, making it extraordinarily crowded, and just behaving like complete assholes. It got a little better during Blink's set, but not much.
Really fun show. Really annoying crowd, undoubtedly the worst I've been a part of in a long while.
Oh, and regarding ticket sales. I think going in this may have been one of the worst selling dates of the tour. They shut off lawn sales on Friday and removed the 300 section of seating. They took everyone with a lawn seat and moved them up to the gravel (where the 300 seats would have been.) Anyone with a ticket in 300s got moved to the 200s and 100s to fill in the gaps. On Saturday morning, they slashed the ticket prices in half. As a result, I'd say they probably had 9,000-10,000 or so in what is usually a 15,000 seat venue.
Anyone that has went so far: do you remember set times? I’m assuming:
Neck Deep: 7:00 PM-7:30 PM
Lil Wayne: 8:00 PM-9:00 PM
Blink-182: 9:30 PM-10:50 PM
That should be correct.
On some days they've pushed Neck Deep back to 7:15 it seems but those other times have stayed consistent.
