    This would have sold a lot better by now if the floor was GA standing room and if the prices for seats were under $100

    I've said this before but I can't stress it enough:

    The Iowa show is literally on a Baseball field, & tickets are $70 for the cheapest GA offering

    Let's hold our breath until we disappear

    This is what the pricing should be like for all shows.

    Also the fact that the majority of blink fans that are mad because one the acts on the bill isn't a rock artist doesnt help this tour

    Idk if I iterated this well enough but: GA is literally all there is. There's:
    -GA $69
    -"Party GA" which is just a little fenced off area at barricade $95
    -Side Stage deck $147

    (Also Wayne isn't even on this date)

    Yeah the comments on Facebook from Blink fans is almost all complaining about Lil Wayne lol. The super high ticket prices don't help either.

    I honestly think Blink overestimated how much they can draw without support that their fans give a shit about. ADTR helped their last headliner draw a lot of younger fans while I think Wayne actually hurts their draw due to the necessity for increased ticket prices without drawing that many more people himself. Its not that these artists don't draw, it's that the ticket prices are outrageous and I believe a majority of both Blink/Wayne fans don't want to pay more to see the other artist. I'm all for diversity with touring, but the backlash from Blink fans is showing this tour may have not been the best idea. I think having someone slightly smaller in the hip hop game open may have been a better choice instead of having to raise ticket prices to tour with Wayne.

    I said this on the other thread and got so much shit got it, but this take is spot on.

    Yeah I feel like someone slightly smaller/cheaper like Kid Cudi, Whiz Khalifa or even someone older like Snoop would have made more sense.

    I think all those artists draw more then lil Wayne does these days. At least in Florida. Kid cudi is literally the headliner of the biggest rap festival on the east coast rolling loud

    Lil Wayne I think was an easy get just cause he's poised to be like the Tool, or The Ataris of hip-hop, where he can just kinda tour on occasion and do his own thing based on name recognition, and not have to work too hard to promote new music. Kind of in a similar position to blink where they're just about to tap out and turn full legacy act, but not quite.

    Rap is just so essential to pop-culture right now that there is no artist in equivalent stature to blink within the scene of hip-hop that isn't insanely bigger on the mainstream scale.

    Honestly the tour might have been better as a large theater/small arena tour with just Blink and Neck Deep. I still think Lil Wayne was probably a big push from Travis and it looks like it's backfiring.

    I'm pretty much just as big of a rap fan as I am a rock fan and there's a few. Lil yatchy would have been perfect. Biggish artist but not as big as blink and super goofy just like them. I could say young thug could have done okay as well.

    This was literally why I didn't purchase in presale. In addition to the "PIT" being apparently "under a canvas" which sounds like you can be part of the show which really only works for Lil Wayne fans. Just poor choices all around from Blink here.

    Semi related but I had no idea Five Points in Irvine was just a bunch of bleachers in a field.

    Hi, Friend

    Basically. It was a quick build just to fill the void of Irvine Meadows/Verizon Wireless (R.I.P.)

    Looks like more shows are adding pits.

    Charlotte has confirmed PIT now. Hopefully VA Beach follows suit. I'll be willing to purchase now.

    Why is the 300 section the same price as the 100 section?? $127 each and there are basically 0 tickets sold for the 300s at my date

    Bonner Springs date added a pit too.

    Bangor added a pit. Not particularly happy about it. I splurged for Ticketmaster's "aisle" ripoff upgrade because it was all that was available close to the stage during the pre-sale/on-sales, primarily because everything was held back for Lil' Wayne's VIP packages or the Waterfront's insanely overpriced hotel packages. Wound up with 6th row center. Wanted pit from the start.

    Pit is $199 plus fees. Insane.

    I don't care about Lil' Wayne being on the tour. I'm not a fan, but I'm there for Blink and I'm sure I'll enjoy myself during his set. But, it's hard to stomach these prices when three years ago I paid $100 flat for a better seat at the same venue and got ADTR and ATL as an added bonus.

    So what did they do to people who bought seats in the first few rows? I'd be kinda pissed if they just auto-changed my ticket to GA.

    Pit seats are such a poor idea - i’d be all for it if they had enough space instead of trying to cram an extra 500 seats. Nobody actually sits because the person in front of them is standing, and in the end the chairs just make it hard to dance and enjoy yourself.

    Concept works much better in an arena floor, for these tiny pits in amphitheaters it is awful.

    I remember paying a lot for pit for the first two tours they did (reunion + neighborhoods) but I don’t think it was more than $100 a ticket. These prices are nuts and while I think eventually they’ll find a way to fill these venues, it won’t be at face value prices.

    Pit was added to Bristow, VA for $129.50
