  1. Yeah a scary thought. Kinda like Walking Dead, but without Zombies.
  2. You think. I'm sure they will soon try to ban anyone from getting into the states.
  3. It would be even more funny if they wouldn't be let back in. When does Trumps ban kick in??
  4. They all should have be included if he wanted to be on the safe side. And what difference does it make, if People, who desperately want to get to the states, just travel from there?
  5. Friends HBO Reunion Special

    Well, it's a sad fact that crazies and people with no taste exist.
  6. I love how those movies are always a reflection of the times they were made in. So you really can see the reflection of half a century in those movies. So, all of them have something going for them. That's amazing.
  7. OHMSS definitely is the best. Both the movie and the book. The only flaw the movie has is that they shot it out of order and unlike in the book, it wasn't the first time Bond and Blofeld met, so that screws things a bit up, if you watch it as part of the series. A couple of years ago, I visited Piz Gloria and Lauterbrunnen and it was simply breathtaking.
  8. Friends HBO Reunion Special

    How can you not like Scrubs??
  9. Who cares? It's still James Bond and in November the interest will still be there. A couple of TV spots, posters, magazines and maybe talk show appearances and all is back on track.
  10. Go watch a play, a musical, other concerts, museums, go shopping... there is plenty to do in London.
  11. Fuck. That april date never sat well with me, but I was starting to look forward to it. Why couldn't those doofuses thinking of that earlier?? Geez. Talk about getting your hopes up.
  12. COVID-19 Outbreak

    If the death rate would be 20 % maybe. But at 0,2 %??? Get over yourself. You can't lock away your kid forever.
  13. Well, then the real you should get it's common sense readjusted or better, get a new one, as it is not working.
  14. No. He doesn't, because he didn't confirm it was him. He had a reason for not confirming.
  15. Uhm. No, it is not. He was given 3 times the chance to say that it isn't him. He was specifically contacted to clear that up. All things considered, there is no reason for him to not say that it wasn't him if it indeed isn't him, but plenty of reasons to decline to confirm that it is him.
  16. RATM are back

    It was amazing. I reloaded at 12:00 got in, picked my front of stage, checked out and paid. All within 2 mins. No waiting. No waiting room. No nothing. Never ever had such a hasslefree experience for a show that was sold out in 20 minutes. Whereas for Toronto I reloaded at the start, had 2000 people in front of me, got in 40 minutes later and all that was available was those damn charity tix. But I'm good with that, more time to explore Toronto. Just don't know how I can wait until September.
  17. Yeah. Not as bad as I thought it would be.
  18. Almost a millennial. But as it is, more of a Gen Xer.
  19. Or you do the same. https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/iron-maidens-stance-against-exploitative-ticketing-proves-a-huge-success/
  20. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    Thanks. So I will go check there. Have to know how it works, just in case they come back here.  PS: And how about someone changing the thread title? The tour is not postponed anymore.
  21. They had personalized tickets. They eliminated sales exceeding the purchase limit. They cancelled sales they suspected were for resales. Same as Rammstein. Tickets are personalized. Name on ticket has to match ID. There is no entrance with non matching IDs. The only way you can resell the tickets is on the original site, where the ticket can only be sold at a minimal higher fee. That's the only way to prevent scalpers. Everything else is just idle talk.
  22. Yes. It is you, who should shut the fuck up. It's not me who wrote that bullshit statement: Since the announcement of our tour, scalpers and broker sites have been listing fake tickets for RATM. We want to do everything we can to protect our fans from predatory scalping and, at the same time, raise a substantial amount of money for charities and activist organizations we support in each city. At many concerts, up to 50% of the seating is scooped up by scalpers and then resold to fans at much higher fees. We are doing everything we can to protect 90% of the RATM tickets from scalpers, and then WE are holding in reserve 10% of the seating (random seats throughout each venue) to sell at a higher ticket price (but low enough to undercut the scalpers). We will donate 100% OF THE MONEY over the fees and base ticket price to charities and activist organizations IN EACH CITY. We are confident this will help many more fans get tickets at face value and put a big dent in the aftermarket gouging. WE HATE SCALPING AS MUCH AS YOU DO and will continue to try to find ways to combat it. Additionally, we are donating all profits from our first three shows to immigrants' rights organizations and will be supporting multiple charities and activist organizations throughout the tour. They did do nothing to prevent tickets to get into scalpers hands, as thousands of tickets are available through reseller sites and not one "more fan" is able to get their hands on face value tickets due to their charity ploy. If I have to pay an extra 400 $ on top of the ticket price, it is not face value. It's 5 times as much. 550 $ for floor, as it was in Toronto, also is not really less then what scalpers would charge. And in fact they took 10% of tickets that fans could have gotten at face value out of the market, so created even more demand for the remaining face value tickets. If, despite trying since the tickets went on sale, all that is left are fucking charity tickets, then yes, that is what I would have to pay to see them. Thankfully, they did that charity ploy only in North America. In Austria they sold regular tickets and I got a regular floor, despite the show being sold out in 20 minutes also over here.
