  1. Twitch Bans Music

    It's interesting to see how it will affect certain big musicians that are also Twitch streamers and whether or not their stream content will get caught by DMCA (even if it is their own music being played). Matt Heafy of Trivium, Herman Li of Dragonforce, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, etc.
  2. Slash In A Maiden Shirt

    Looks like to me, they opened up for Maiden on the Seventh Tour of the Seventh Tour in Canada and the NorthWest parts of the states. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventh_Tour_of_a_Seventh_Tour
  3. ticketmaster

    I'll see if when I make my requests and believe it is true, but yep. Starting on May 1st and you got 30 days to make the request. https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ticketmaster-to-offer-refunds-for-concerts-postponed-due-to-pandemic/
  4. ticketmaster

    I believe that was indeed the case. The old terms of service stated that TM will offer refunds if events were cancelled or rescheduled. However, Ticketmaster changed it in light of the pandemic to state only "cancelled." I actually did contact Ticketmaster support a few weeks back to see if I can get a refund for a rescheduled show and they informed me that only shows that are cancelled get the refund. I mean, come on, do this company think that any of the shows that has been rescheduled to later this year will actually happen this year? I get saving their hides and their finances so that they wouldn't go belly up, but they could have given some form of selfless goodwill in light of this for their consumers. I guess that's asking too much from a company like Live Nation/Ticketmaster.
  5. Your (Postponed) Concerts in 2020

    Gosh, here's my list so far. Prior to like mid-January, I only got tickets to five of these shows (Alter Bridge and Shinedown). All of a sudden, I see Groupon deals for good nosebleed seat tickets on the cheap for like under $40.00 for five of these shows (especially the ones in September) and it padded my list nicely. Alter Bridge with Clint Lowery and Deepfall opening - The Regency Ballroom - San Francisco, CA. February 23rd, 2020. Alter Bridge with Clint Lowery and Deepfall opening - The Wiltern Theater - Los Angeles, CA. February 24th, 2020. Alter Bridge with Clint Lowery and Deepfall opening - The Moore Theater - Seattle, WA. February 26th, 2020. Alter Bridge with Clint Lowery and Deepfall opening - The Knitting Factory - Spokane, WA. February 27th, 2020. Apocalyptica with Lacuna Coil - Mayan Theater - Los Angeles, CA. May 11th, 2020. Coheed & Cambria with Chon opening - Riverside Municipal Auditorium - Riverside, CA. May 13th, 2020 Shinedown - The Wiltern Theater - Los Angeles, CA. May 14th, 2020. Alice Cooper with Tesla and Lita Ford opening. Hollywood Bowl - Los Angeles, CA. May 31st, 2020. Disturbed and Staind with Bad Wolves opening - FivePoint Amphitheater - Irvine, CA. September 2nd, 2020. Goo Goo Dolls and Lifehouse with Forest Blakk opening - Greek Theater - Los Angeles, CA. September 5th, 2020. Matchbox Twenty - FivePoint Amphitheater - Irvine, CA. September 24th, 2020. Nickelback with Stone Temple Pilots and Switchfoot opening - FivePoint Amphitheater - Irvine, CA. September 25th, 2020.
  6. Went to Ticketmaster on my lunch break at around noon to check for tickets for their shows at the Forum today. One show didn't have them available and another only had seats in the back of the stage (that was for $100+ without fees factoring in). Don't think I can get a a decent view in the 200 sections of The Forum for like under $65.00 (fees included).
  7. Confirmed new album and NA tour, including two shows in LA at the Forum. Yeah, I'll try to get a ticket. Don't know if I can get it on the cheap given how Pearl Jam wants to approach the secondary markets (which means if you want to get a ticket, get it on Ticketmaster.......). We'll see how it goes. https://loudwire.com/pearl-jam-new-album-gigaton-2020-us-tour/
  8. Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Poison 2020 Stadium Tour

    The Rams stadium should be ready by then. The first concerts there will be T. Swift in July and I imagine there's a lot of people and money invested in those opening shows that it should run as smoothly as it should. Parking would be very expensive though. It's next to The Forum and the Forum already charges $30.00 for parking for their shows.
  9. Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Poison 2020 Stadium Tour

    Didn't Paul McCartney did stadiums on his summer tour this year? Or are we not counting baseball stadiums, but football stadiums? Edit: Just checked the tour leg, it wasn't a stadium tour. Some shows were baseball stadiums like Dodger Stadium here in LA.
  10. Eddie Van Halen Hospitalized

    Last piece of news I heard regarding Eddie Van Halen prior to this was that he was at a Tool concert with Wolfgang at the Staples Center in LA. Someone wanted Eddie to take a picture of the person by himself with the stage behind him. Didn't know that it was Eddie Van Halen taking the picture.
  11. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2020

    Maybe he just has a good idea of how to budget very expensive trips (and expensive GA Iron Maiden shows). I don't make a lot of money, but that's not stopping me in planning to see four Alter Bridge shows in a week (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Spokane) and hoping to spend like less than $700.00 in plane tickets and hotel stay and I do want to do something outside of going to concerts when I'm out in the northwest. I'm also contemplating wanting to go Europe as well and catch the Iron Maiden show in Holland with Alter Bridge and Airbourne opening, but I shall bide my time for now to look into getting a passport and looking at flight prices and see what other shows (non-festival shows) in Europe at the time will peak my interests.
  12. The Best Albums of the Decade

    All right, going off my favorite list albums of the decade I've posted at another forum. People may think this is a terrible decade, but honestly, I've listened and enjoyed so many albums from this decade, I could have fit a top 50 if I wanted to. I don't even care how it does in the mainstream charts and whatnot and I find myself trying to listen to some stuff outside of rock like JPop and various electronic music that I feel makes music that I enjoy. That stated, a lot of the modern bands I liked made some great albums and some modern bands that I used to like a lot in the late 00s didn't make as great albums. 1. Alter Bridge - Fortress (2013) 2. Rush - Clockwork Angels (2012) 3. Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls (2015) 4. Myles Kennedy - Year of the Tiger (2018) 5. Switchfoot - Vice Verses (2011) 6. Black Stone Cherry - Kentucky (2016) 7. Tremonti - Cauterize (2015) 8. Sevendust - Time Travelers and Bonfires (2014) 9. Dream Theater - Dream Theater (2013) 10. Breaking Benjamin - Dark Before Dawn (2015) 11. Sixx: A.M. - Prayers for the Blessed (2016) 12. Nothing More - The Stories We Tell Ourselves (2017) 13. Foo Fighters - Wasting Light (2011) 14. Big Wreck - Albatross (2012) 15. Aimer - Sun Dance (2019)
  13. New Slash interview about Smkc

    I'm going to have to agree with you. I want a follow up solo album from Myles after Alter Bridge does their usual tour stops for their new album above another SMKC album. I was actually in the same plane as him going from Orlando to Raleigh after Alter Bridge's Walk the Sky listening party. Talked to him for a few minutes after the flight. Pretty chill and professional guy. The one main thought I said to him was "I hope it doesn't take long for him to do another series of solo shows," because the solo show I saw in LA was probably the best I have ever saw him perform and the best show I have ever seen. He did say he wants to get writing on another one so that he can do those shows. I just hope his schedule isn't too busy to the point where it takes another 10 years or so to get another solo album out.
  14. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2020

    I quite enjoyed the setlist and everything that goes with it on this tour. I saw them in LA a few weeks ago and they were spectacular. I do wish I can see them one more time, particularly on a new album tour, and hopefully I get that chance before they call it a career.
  15. Well, at least, he's honest with some people's concerns regarding his voice on this question. At 4:50.
  16. Concerts in 2019

    So I've seen 14 concerts so far this year. I'd say all but one or two of them were pretty great experiences. The best of the bunch I've seen was Switchfoot, Within Temptation, Coheed & Cambria, Zac Brown Band , and Disturbed and the best is yet to come for me, especially in September. Going to see Sevendust/Skillet and then a few weeks later, a week full of events that I've deemed will be the best week of my life. Iron Maiden in LA. Going to see Alter Bridge's Walk the Sky album Listening Party in Orlando, FL and then head up to Raleigh, NC to see Alter Bridge's first proper headlining show since 2017 with 10 Years and Dirty Honey opening. All within 5 days. On top of that, I spot a couple of events I want to see like Delain, Big Wreck, maybe catch Alter Bridge in London (with Shinedown and Sevendust opening) at the O2 Arena if my bank account looks stable enough to spend for the trip.
  17. 'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

    I hope Dirty Honey has a bright future. I got a good feeling about them moreso than GVF. When I'm Gone has been making waves on the Active Rock charts, now a top 10 single, and it's a solid song that fans of classic rock and people that like guys like Slash can get into easily. Funny thing about the whole topping charts doesn't always equal bigger success or placement. Dirty Honey has a top 10 single right now yet they are the opening band of the Skillet/Alter Bridge co-headlining tour in the Fall and it's the right placement since Skillet (whose has a song currently at #18 on the chart) and AB (Wouldn't You Rather is only at #23, but slow and steady is always been the case for AB's singles) has been around for a long time and built a great fanbase to the point where they can comfortably do their own shows and do this co-headlining tour. I hope Dirty Honey provides a solid opening set when I'm going to see them in Raleigh, NC along with 10 Years and AB. All part of that epic week of concert-going where I'm seeing Iron Maiden in LA, Alter Bridge's Walk the Sky album listening party in Orlando, FL, and AB's first headlining show back since late 2017 in Raleigh.
