what's the point of stadium tours? Who goes to these? Posted on May 19, 2023 by Anonymous what's the point of stadium tours? Who goes to these?

We're gonna get another album
We're gonna get another tour
It doesn't matter what he does lol he can't die.
Nobody goes to stadium shows, they're too crowded
>Nobody goes to stadium shows, they're too crowded
its a joke
I'd go but I don't have a gf and my back hurts
I just like, how people won't pay 12 dollars for a high quality studio CD, but will cough out 100 for some garbage concert.
are you so autistic that the appeal of live events bemuses you?
Keep giving me excuses for low record sales.
>so autistic that the appeal of live events bemuses you
i dont get it
I've been to a couple stadium shows, they're fun and it's not comparable to small shows. Generally they have a higher level of production, and it's also somewhat exilarating to be around that many people singing the same songs, it's a palpable energy you'll never understand
Only poor AND irresponsible pieces of trash complain, people who go to these shows at least have a job and know how to save money instead of spending it on muh drugs and wondering why they can't buy nice things once in a while
I bet you criticize the elite for greenhouse admissions for the making of goods you consume.
this is a lot of rationalizing for an experience that boils down to watching some performer half a mile away that is only visible because of some giant projector screens (virtualizing the experience to be no different than watching it on a screen at home) while people around you hype themselves up to cope and make up for the above fact along iwth how many hundreds/thousands they spent
nothing will beat the intimacy of smaller venues and smaller shows, where you get the same "exhilaration" of people singing the songs, as though crowd size is supposed to change that
Nah it's not the same, if you were someone who went to both kind of shows like me you'd have absolutely no reason to favor one over the other as they both offer very different experiences, but alas, you're a coping homosexual who either
A. too poor to have ever gone to a big show
B. all the artists you listen to are unpopular smalltime ones
exactly, both types of shows are their own special experience. i saw grouper last year while visiting brooklyn in some random ass venue and was blown away. seeing madonna this summer with my mom and i cannot fucking wait
why the fuck would you see madonna in 20+23
Bogged Out Alien Tour 2023
As if I needed more proof that music enthusiast were blatant homosexuals.
Found the guy who has only gone to shitty LULZcore concerts for bands that can barely play their instruments. A really good live music experience can blow your fuckin mind in a way records simply cannot recreate. Go see a band that can actually play and puts effort into their performances and not fotm LULZ trash.
I only listen to classical.
99% of record sale revenue goes to ~~*record companies*~~ and ~~*management*~~. Touring is what keeps most artists afloat and you should always pick a live show over some piece of plastic.
>his favorite artist isn't popular enough to play in a stadium
Mine is, they just dont come here. Last time they did a show here was in 2006 i think...
I saw PRINCE on the floor at a stadium show. He looked at my japanese girlfriend so I waited outside and 1v9'ed his bodyguards outside the venue
People with enough money for the tickets
It'd be cool to see RHCP in a stadium like that but I bet the tickets are ridiculously priced
only if they didnt play anything made after mothers milk
I like a lot of their later stuff, even recent stuff. I like Dark Necessities, good song. Black Summer is good too.
I've seen live RHCP shows on YouTube and they do seem good. They're getting old of course but considering their ages they perform well.
I saw them in a Stadium and they were really fucking good. I haven't cared about their music in years but went for nostalgia but they are actual real musicians that practice their instruments. And I saw Thursday and Sunny Day Real Estate the following weeks so I know what a legitimate live band sounds like.
I had 2 buddies snag pre-sale pit tickets for the peppers for like $450 each for the past show they did at the titans stadium. Both have came with me to festivals but never did anything on their own. Last minute they sold their tickets for computer part upgrades...I didn't even plan on going, but fuck that short sightedness burns my britches. I managed to get up to the barricade when the peppers came to bonaroo, but had to camp that spot for almost 12 hours
cool story bro
Because they can be fun. Also some artists only play stadium shows so it's either go or don't see them. I saw Rammstein in a stadium last year and it was great. I also saw a small local metal band at a small venue last month and it was also great. Totally different vibes but both fun for different reasons
I saw Radiohead at a stadium. After an absolute nightmare of trying to get a ticket. I got a shitty ticket for a nosebleed seat. I was in a sea of thousands and I could hardly see the band. Radiohead is my favorite band but it sucked. I'm glad I saw them but I wouldn't say it was a good show. Stadiums are terrible. Even larger venues suck.
I saw midnight yesterday for $25 in a club with like maybe a hundred or so other people. It was better than Radiohead.
It's not the stadium that sucked
you don’t get shit like this at a small venue
wow pretty lights. I hope I can see them from tier two.
I like small shows because it feels more personal. I've been to one in an arena and while fun it doesn't beat that closeness to the artist of smaller venues.
I like a stadium tour as long as they go all out on the production. If you're doing a huge venue your show has to be huge too.
I prefer small venues
is this the argentina concert?
The Station nightclub fire in Rhode Island.
>Pyrotechnic display ignited blaze
people are such retards
Well how else am I seeing The Stones or Rod Stewart?
They used to be good. I saw Oasis at Wembley in 2000 and it was fucking mental. Sanitised bullshit these days like everything else
I prefer venues where they bulldoze it afterward
I mostly go to small shitty metal shows, but I also bought tickets to see Metallica's stadium show because they were cheap as fuck and I have never seen them before.
How cheap? I just looked at one of their upcoming shows in Germany and it looks like face value is €150 EUR ($162 USD)
That's quite a lot just for a concert, although I imagine other stadium gigs for similarly big bands probably cost a similar amount, if not more
118€ for both days, so 59€ per day
It's shitty seats though and I normally hate seats
boomer retards for the most part
