in case you need an excuse to visit louisville?



seems to be organized somewhat thematically:

night 1: mainstream rawk
night 2: prog-metal/nu-metal
night 3: just metal (megadeth should be moved here)
night 4: party rawk

and if KY ain't your thing, there is a doppelganger-fest going on in sacramento... most of the same headliners, also 4 days, even the poster design is similar... generic much?

If that’s true AC/DC will be announcing a fall tour…..no way they are getting back together for just one show! It’s been many years since their tour with Axl

So weird…Ozzy just retired

he very recently said he wanted to do more shows, and he had the energy/health/etc to do shows - it was the pace of touring and constant traveling that he couldn't handle.  so doing a one-off show where he can be taken care of (and paid big bucks for) is feasible.

i'm contemplating the possibility of potentially considering the theoretical option of attending this show... looked into flights and hotels last night, still pretty cheap for now.

I would only consider it if every band was required to do a Power Trip cover out of respect.

you know what isn't cheap?  a ticket to this show - not that i expected it to be, that big a lineup is going to command a big fee.

a 3-day GA ticket is $599 + fees, steep but understandable IMO.  silly ol' me assumed this was going to be set up like Coachella, an all-GA festival.

then i saw something about reserved floor and grandstand seats:

P5 $799 + fees
P4 $999 + fees
P3 $1,099 + fees
P2 $1,399 + fees
P1 $1,599 + fees


(click to enlarge)

so that $600+ ticket gets you to the back of the venue, the equivalent of a lawn ticket.  gonna cost closer to $2k to get to the front.  by my count, there are 120 rows of seats, plus the pit and alleys, between the stage and GA... bring binoculars.

The terrible perspective of that chart is giving me vertigo.
