    i'm truly curious how much a can't stop won't stop tour would pull in comparison to this

    Probably the same in terms of pull at this point. The Maine's fanbase is super weird (weird as in unconventional), and if anything has only grown stronger since those days, and full-heartedly supports the new material (Pioneer and on) more than the old.

    I don't even think I've seen a fanbase with that mentality. It's super impressive, bravo to the Maine for not being stuck in that "nostalgia bubble" that a lot of their contemporaries (Mayday Parade, We the Kings, CIWWAF, etc.) got stuck in where people have stopped caring about their new material and are stuck on 10 year old albums.

    I asked both Pat and Garrett last tour how'd they feel about a 10 year tour for CSWS and neither seemed that into it. I do wish they'd play some of it but who knows.

    Surprised Dallas is at an outdoor venue for November, but still so excited!

    Wow I was really hoping they'd do LLL in full but getting American Candy with it is not bad at all (even if I've already seen it in full). I will 100% be there.

    It's really cool that they're able to do this and will still sell out most these days. Not many bands can do a tour playing only from their two newest albums and get away with it, but then again not many bands make new albums that are as good as the Maine's.

    i haven't listened to the band in a long time and this new stuff doesn't interest me either but their evolution as a band seems fascinating, they're about the only band from that era not holding onto it.

    Even as someone who's favorite Maine release is Black & White, I think this is really cool and will definitely try to go. Smart move for them to not to try to chase the anniversary tour trend because it seems to be biting bands in the ass on album cycles that follow it (lots of those bands seem to be downgrading in venue size after playing full albums)

    to a degree for a lot of fans that allows them to see a lot of the songs they want to see and then there's no reason to see them anymore. i felt that way to a degree with the jack's mannequin EIT tour, now I've seen it all and i don't need to bother going to an AMITW show to see a few songs that i've already likely seen

    also i'm assuming they're adding philly and more after the dashboard shows

    @maybevictor Prestigious

    I totally agree. I felt that way about Say anything after the IARB tour, specially since their live shows (and to a degree, their music) have gone way downhill in quality since

    Let's hold our breath until we disappear

    Planning to go to the Chicago date for sure.

    Gonna assume Cleveland is the smallest cap yeah? 500
  18. meggers


    Dallas is around the same 400-500.

    750-800 or so in baltimore

    1,300 capacity in Chicago. They usually play this venue here and always sell it out.

    Kinda bummed they skipped over Pittsburgh but I'll most likely be at the Cleveland and Buffalo shows anyways. Super excited for this!

  23. cricketandclover

    Things have changed.

    Probably a Michigan date in between Chicago and CLE

    Think they'll play an encore or just end the set with Another Night on Mars? They've been ending their sets with that pretty consistently for awhile
