I don't think others were, though.
I wasn’t but for something that really isn’t that hard, I think it’s funny it spurred this many comments.
expecting a spring announcement for leg 2 to be summer/fall 2019
I have a feeling they're pushing the east coast dates to the summer cuz they're gonna attempt amphitheaters.
this was my thought as well
No way can they fill up amphitheaters by themselves anymore. They'd have to bring along a fairly significant opener, in my opinion.
Especially doing two nights, it feels unrealistic. I think it’s just a wait because it’s a huge tour in terms of area to cover
Could they ever fill up amphitheater’s? I don’t think so.
I guess my market is different (new york city). During the Louder Now tour they sold out Nassau Coliseum (15,000 seats). A few years later during the New Again cycle I watched them co headline Mohegan Sun Arena with All American Rejects (10,000 seats). Then on the Tell All Your Friends anniversary tour they sold out 3 nights at Terminal 5 (9,000 total) and then another night at Playstation theater (2,500). And then for the Coheed co-headliner they sold out Coney Island Amphitheater (6,500 seats).
I just have a feeling for this 20th anniversary tour they're gonna try and just do one night here at a really big venue and try and get 3 solid support acts. If they market it right and make it clear they're playing only the first 3 albums I feel like they could get a big draw here.
The venue in Denver is small. They're playing the "Moon Room" at Summit Music Hall, when they've played the full Summit Music Hall on the past couple tours. The "Moon Room" is a smaller stage where they have most of the room closed off. I have a feeling they did that so they could move it to the big room if necessary.
Louder Now era they were playing in 5k+ cap venues and selling them out. I know they sold out Nautica in Cleveland in 06. They also had Angels and Airwaves opening, which I believe was their first time touring so there was a ton of excitement surrounding them around that time.
And Head Automatica!!!
Louder Now was their commercial peak. They'd need to do a co-headliner, like last summer, to do small sheds again in most markets.
Like others have mentioned, they headlined amphitheaters in ‘06. I was at that tour in Camden and from what I remember it was pretty full. Not sure if it sold out though
Angels & Airwaves was a pretty big draw on that tour, too, given it was Tom's re-introduction.
What are the odds that they finally play “follow the format” live? I would fucking die.
Probably a 0% chance
Yeah, it was the perfect storm for TBS. At the height of their popularity AND Tom Delonge's new band touring with them. I remember at the time, I asked my sister to go to the show and I didn't even plug it as a TBS show, I told her it was a chance to see Tom's new band (She declined). I went though but AVA was a huge draw for that show (I was really into The Subways at the time too and as @bachna84 mentioned Head Automatic was a draw too).
how high quality a version do you have of that? Last month, someone mentioned that song and I thought to myself "wait - I know that song. How do I know that song?" Youtubed it real quick and said "oooohh shiiittt!" Still knew most of the words. Could you share it? Otherwise, I'll settle for a youtube rip
I'm pretty sure the version on YouTube is the best version of it. It was only a demo. And I know they'll probably never play it but a man can dream. For my money it's maybe the catchiest song they ever wrote.
Small sheds and a co-headliner is exactly what I would say. On typical tours they tend to play ~1-2k capacity venues with strong support acts.
And I think they've pretty much tapped out all of the co-headliners they could be paired with over the last few years. (Thinking on bands they "came up with," anyway.)
Don't forget about The Subways.
Feel like they'll do Forest Hills or the Coney Island amphitheater and also play the Great South Bay Festival or whatever it's called.
They played the arena here in Wilkes Barre in 2007 with Underoath and Armor For Sleep. I think it's 8,000 or 9,000 cap. Pretty crazy to think about that now.
