Concerts thread - FBG's lovin' live music memories, it was a good run


Recommended Posts

Motley Crue/Def Leppard/Poison/Joan Jett Stadium Tour is finally starting to cancel some dates.

July 2nd in Cincinnati and August 28 in Chicago have been cancelled. 

Had tickets for Miami concert on July 7th but will get a refund when cancelled. Besides, it will be hot as balls in Miami in July. 

I'm a little disappointed because I don't go to many concerts and this is one my wife and I were looking forward to going to see together. Also would have been the first concert for my 15-year old (although he would much prefer to go so  Trippy Red or Rolling Loud...)

I listen to Steve Earle's show he has called Hard Core Troubadour. He has said more than once that no one will be touring this summer. He say's don't let anyone fool you, there will be no live music this summer. I am not sure if he truly knows but he is in the business more than me. :shrug:

I have heard him say this on multiple shows.

Jason Isbell is rescheduling - in my case, from next week to a show at the same venue in April.  Happy to see Strand of Oak rescheduled with him and will still be opening the show.

I am sitting on tickets for 5 or 6 other shows, and this is the first one to reschedule, so I guess that's good news.  I miss live music tremendously. First world problems I suppose, but I did not fully realize how important it is to me to get out to a show a couple times a month.  Its not so much the music, although that is a big part of it, but I really miss my gang of show-going buddies and the good times we always have going to shows together.

The Billy Bragg tour we talked about before shutdown has been pushed back to 2021 sans the Milwaukee dates.

I'm a big Strand of Oaks fan.  Tim is such a sweet guy.

Damn - Maybe he was just coming here due to the DNC going on at the same time.  That sucks, was looking forward to seeing him again.

This whole thing sucks.

Anyone start getting refunds?

I think most of my shows have been postponed. Tool just canceled their tour so fans can get money back. Will wait to see when that happens 

I’ve gotten refunds for 3 shows. One was almost immediate and the other two took one month and 3 months. Waiting for another summer show to get cancelled, but hasn’t happened yet.

Got refunds to the shows that weren't postponed but outright canceled.

For many of the shows that were postponed there was an option to get a refund, I just kept the tickets for next year.

Was offered refund when Rage rescheduled for next summer.  I opted to hold on to the tickets.

I’d pay for quality live shows done remotely. Do polls for section for song requests, etc. Make it interactive but flow. I’d equate to what I’d pay for  PPV. Fight, UFC etc. Stones do a show I’d pay more than a lesser act.  Fly acts into Red Rocks or other great venues. Sell it worldwide.

I would be in on this.

Hmmm

I dont recall submitting anything being my show was outright canceled 

I have to try to reach them it looks like

Thanks

FWIW, both of the shows were rescheduled and I was given the option of refund or hold tickets for the new date. Would think if outright cancelled, it should have been prioritized for refund, but would guess you would have to start the process (at least to get a timely response...:))

Anyone get any TM refunds?

Been 2+ months since this post and TM said in progress and would take 30 days

One show was cancelled and I was refunded within a week from TM. The others are moved to 2021 (fingers crossed)

Valerie June covering Fake plastic trees is...not working. Whoa. Really not working.

Ew.

Nah, I kid. "Fake Plastic Trees" feels so long ago to me, like that melancholy kid in his 20s doesn't even exist anymore. I can't hear The Bends without going back in time, which is sometimes bad for the lasting quality and emotion of music. When it becomes too tied to a period in your life, and you've moved on, the meaningfulness of the song can just be flat. That's "Fake Plastic Trees" to me.

No, just responding to your updates. I saw this thread get bumped and immediately missed the ability to see live shows and also realized while reading that I'd posted about Thursday webcasting a concert, so figured I'd comment on you going through the webcast experience in a sort of form of solidarity. Webcast watchers, unite!

:hifive:
