Surprised WTK could swallow their pride
See you in Grand Rapids.
I was pretty sure I saw Travis at the State Champs show in Orlando in March so this validates that in my head, haha. I'm not 100% sure I would have went to this but I'm upset there's not any FL dates.
I'm probably in the minority on this site with this opinion, but I really wish State Champs would have toured with some newer acts for this tour. Nothing against Simple Plan and WTK, it just feels odd that half of the bands on this tour released their best/hit album(s) 10+ years ago and haven't even came close to topping it.
ticketmaster presale code for wed?
Presale tickets and vip are on sale tomorrow with the code SPSC2019 here: Sound Rink | The Ultimate Artist Experience
State Champs also have their own vip that go on sale tomorrow at 10 am est.
Never seen WTK other than a song or two at warped so I'm stoked for this. Simple Plan and Champs are always good so I can't miss this tour
Is Simple Plan really bigger than State Champs?
They are close to the same size, which is why they are co-headlining.
Good call. didn't look at the poster. I'm still surprised they are even the same size
2 Different fanbases really. Simple Plan is playing for the nostalgia crowd and State Champs for the current generation. Both will benefit from this tour as maybe some 30 year old hears State Champs for the first time and become fans. Same with the 16 year old State Champs fans hearing Simple Plan for the first time.
Got my ticket for LA! Super stoked
Price was originally advertised as $37.50 but now it's $43.50 for my date :/
Same for Simple Plan to a degree. Good move by them though to try to keep growing their base.
Northbound have been added to all dates.
This must not be selling well. I received an offer for 2 free tickets from the venue and I checked the ticket prices and they seem to be running a 2 for 1 special.
Would have loved to have finally seen SP. Their first proper US tour in god knows how long and of course there are no dates that worked out.
Honestly I feel like the demographic difference between the nostalgia pop punk crowd and the new pop punk crowd was big enough that it negatively impacted the tour. A State Champs / The Story So Far / Grayscale / Northbound bill would have sold really well. Alternatively a Simple Plan / Sum 41 / We The Kings tour would have done really well.
I honestly love this lineup wish Florida had a date
The Niagara Falls NY date was packed but Simple Plan loving Canadians made up half the crowd.
My friends went to the Jersey show, apparently it was pretty packed and that show was on a Monday
These are selling fine from what I've heard
Yeah idk what shows weren't selling well, but Long Island was pretty packed, even if they did do a groupon deal (that I missed out on ). Some of these shows are in smaller markets, so maybe it could just being a matter of them having to choose between a room that's way to small or a room that's a bit too big, and went with the big. Can't think of a better newer pop punk band to fit this other than State Champs.
Holy shit We the Kings are still together
