    The PTV record did not sell anywhere near what they were expecting and ... well, they're not touring right now for ... reasons.

    Wish Ronnie Radke would follow suit.

    Yeah, but Ronnie IS Falling In Reverse, and he didn't become a household name in the scene depite being an awful person, FIR rose to popularity because he was an awful person.

    It debuted at number four. Wtf did you think they expected? Number one with 400,000 copies sold in the first week?

    They were looking for a Future Hearts-sized number. All Time Low and them were roughly about the same size, give or take, in that time. To do 25,000 less than ATL was a disappointment.

    Fearless honestly saw it as another Top 10 debut in their catalog. They don't get a lot of those.

    SWS is literally my least favorite band, almost changing my mind about wanting to make the trip lol

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    There's a really cool BBQ restaurant right next to 20 Monroe in Grand Rapids I'm very much excited to try while SWS plays.

    You can be both happy with a top 10 debut and disappointed with its overall sales. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

    Inside the B.O.B. I assume?
    Does 20 Monroe allow reentry? I still haven’t been there yet.

    No reentry, yes it's in the Bob and the venue is set up nicely.

    going to the minneapolis show next tuesday. have to drive from wisconsin right away after work, so i might be a little late, but that's fine since i have no interest in either opening band.

    Decent-sized crowd for an opener. That being said you could walk right up to the stage more or less if you wanted to.

    If the setlist is accurate on setlist.fm GC is only playing 2 songs off the new album, which seems super weird to me.

    I think it’s just them being super aware of why people are going to see them in 2018

    And as someone who only would go for their newer stuff (cause let's be honest, 2002-2005 pop-punk was full of less-fun Blink-182 rip-offs) that's super dissapointing

    I understand them being aware, but I feel like the two songs they play from the new album (that the tour is oddly named after) are the worst choices haha.

    Good Charlotte ripped off Blink?

    Uh... that's a ridiculously lazy take.

    I mean I don't think GC were specifically, just all the pop punk bands were doing pop-punk worse than blink, and the whole scene was in autopilot. I mean I guess GC were doing the faux rap and turntablisms but that's it.

    Eventually 2005 came around and pop-punk became unique again, but The Young & Hopeless lacked any kind of wit or attitude Blink/Fall Out Boy/Yellowcard had around the same time.

    Seems like someone is confusing their opinion for fact....

    Good Charlotte's first album (the one I assume you're referring to with the "faux rap" and "turntablisms") came out in 2000, just over a year after Enema popped ... and they were doing parts of that sound for at least two years before that.

    Meanwhile, how did Yellowcard have attitude? OR wit?

    I get that you're young, but you have a lot of context to fill in about this era of the music. And I don't think you're totally wrong about this, but the examples you're trying to use just don't fit. If you wanted to say Simple Plan were doing some of this stuff, sure.

    I was purely coming here to express an opinion. I'm just saying that as a younger fan of theres who doesn't have nostalgia-vision over everything, I prefer their newer stuff.

    I also wish they'd play more new stuff. You're not alone there.
