    If All Time Low jumps on I might actually go now.

    I'm all for trying a unique tour lineup (for example, Wiz Khalifa & Fall Out Boy in 2015 ended up being one of my favorite tours, even though I hated it when it was announced), but this combination truly puzzled me and I was never excited about it. I briefly reconsidered going when they changed it to an Enema 10 Year thing, but I'm still on the fence. Definitely was considering the Columbus show due to ATL and no Lil Wayne.

    Need to check the tour route/schedule because it might actually be worth going now.

    Oh damn they're in my city in a few weeks! Hmmmmm

  7. He's been getting good reviews from people that attended the shows so far, most saying the crowd's been really into him. This is super weird. Haven't seen anything like it in a while.

    Bands I don't like open for bands I do like all the time. The only thing it affects is what time I show up, not whether or not I'll buy a ticket.

    This is definitely bizarre, though. I don't want to speculate, but I do wonder if there's something personal going on with Wayne. Didn't they have to swap set times for one of the previous shows? In any case, it sucks to STILL see people on this site talk about how they didn't want to go because of Lil Wayne. Don't get that at all.

    Big loss for the tour if he leaves. Wayne is a legend.

    Perhaps he was having an off day and just couldn’t keep it to himself.

    Not surprised at all, Wayne is very bi-polar. I’ve met him a few times here in NOLA and his mood swings are crazyyyyy...

    I mean it's a weird tour lineup but I saw Every Time I Die, Machine Gun Kelly, and Fall Out Boy together and had a blast. Not huge on Lil Wayne, but it definitely would not have been enough to stop me from going to this if I hadn't just seen Blink at Warped. Hopefully this was just an off night and he'll get back in the swing of things.

    This is my sentiment exactly. Neck Deep + All Time Low + blink-182 is a show I'll see. Lil Wayne is someone I just don't even want to deal with. The only songs he has that I like are collabs, and the little bit of his newer stuff I've heard is absolute garbage.

    Replacing him with All Time Low would be an upgrade stylistically for this tour.

    If ATL replaced him I would go, but Blink should try to talk Wayne into staying.
     
  19. Y’all know All Time Low can’t just replace Wayne at these venue sizes right? They’re no where near big enough.

    I saw this show in Holmdel on Tuesday night and was shocked how into him the crowd was in the lower bowl. At least 1/3 of the people knew his songs and were big time in.

    In 2017, All Time Low played a 5,000 capacity venue in Chicago. They are definitely nowhere near as big to join this tour, unless they replaced Neck Deep.

    my thoughts are that something else caused this.

    are the shows selling well? i could see him dropping if that’s the case.

    but i can’t see him dropping just because it’s “not his crowd.” because either 1) he knew this going in or 2) the crowd has been receptive to him
    so that’s not an issue.

    hopefully he’s just having an off night and nothing serious going on personally.

    I'd go if ATL just played Lil Wayne covers for their entire set

    I’d go if Lil Wayne decided to stay on the tour, but just played ATL covers for his entire set.

    I really hope he was just upset tonight and he's not actually dropping off, I was just as excited to see him as Blink

    I like ATL but lol at the suggestion that they're anywhere near Wayne's level
