Into the public bath
Reservoir of human excretions
The sweat and urine of a thousand men
A goddamned bacteria trap
Microbes making love to amoebas
Spawning secondary human byproducts
Dead skin cells, ejaculate and flora
Disgusting cocktail for the gargling…

Soaking in bathwater rich with contaminates
Gargling the residuals squeezed off by humans
Drinking from the waters these people have voided in
Molesting myself in the drink and exploiting the public

Which was my point to being with. There's no reason people can't wait until dates and most of all, the headliner to be announced before they post about an upcoming tour. Because what happens is that info usually ends up getting buried somewhere in the thread and people will miss it. At least this thread cut through the bullshit and had everything you needed to know in the first post.

I don't mean to single you out but this is something that's always bothered me on this site.

Better to see them on a Sunday when most people aren't working. Its good marketing that way.

But for me, I am going regardless because I'm interviewing at least Last Chance To Reason at the show. I'm trying for Revocation too.

As much as I do get mad about it, at the same time, any publicity is good publicity. So anyone who likes, hates, loves, bitches about it give it promotion so its fine.

I sent Revocation a message about the word going around about them dropping off. I'm sure they will make an official statement before getting back to me, but I really hope they are still on as I've yet to see them.

That's what the venue in Joliet does but its all one stage. They will just tack on tons of locals sometimes to help sell tickets to pay for the larger acts.

They are my favorite musicians there at least. getting to hang out with them everytime they are in MN is pretty sweet. They actually sold me a t-shirt for 6 bucks because that's all I had on me (the shirts were $15-20). Now that is pretty damn sweet of them to do.


But yeah the Browning is the only band I don't care about on the bill. and now that the fest is soooo much shorter now, I don't mind having to sit through them if I'm not doing interviews.

The Toronto show has been moved from the Kool Haus (which holds about 2500 people) to the Opera House (which only holds about 800). I'm actually happy since I like the Opera House way better but it doesn't bode well for how tickets are selling. Toronto is usually a hot place for metal shows, especially on a Saturday night. I can't see all those bands dropping off being the reason, maybe the interest just isn't there. Fear Factory was able to play the Kool Haus thirteen years ago when the Cars single broke, but the last few times it's been the Opera House. And the Industrialist really wasn't that great, definatly not good enough to get them into a larger venue.

Regardless, I still want to see Fear Factory again and I'm stoked for Cattle Decapitation and Misery Index. No way I'm going to be there at 4:30, I'll probably show up around 6:30-7:00 and be able to see all the bands I want to see.

That's a good deal! If these tickets were half priced here, I'd buy one for sure! It's hard to justify $35 for two bands I want to see but won't recognize many songs from (Voivod, Cattle Decapitation), and one more band I want to see but have seen before (Havok).

I think it's safe that this will be Shockwave festivals first and last year.

There's too many package tours: Mayhem, Warped, Uproar, Summer Slaughter, Carnival of Madness, Trespass America, All Stars


and those are all doing A LOT better

Tickets are $10, and the venue never does a deals like that. Only other time I saw them do that is for a upcoming Sevendust show.

I think a combination of that plus, I don't think "festival/package tours" that are indoors & only 1 stage tours do not work very well. Summer Slaughter being an exception.

It's a good (not great) tour. FF pulls in an ok crowd but not enough for a package tour. And not strong enough support to draw a big crowd.

Besides all that, FF did just do a headlining tour in May with The Browning. Plus, I've already seen Havok and Cattle Decapitation (and Revocation) on tours this year.

Even though FF is headlining, I definitely thought the draw for this would be Voivod. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I haven't heard of Voivod playing any shows outside of Montreal in quite a while.

Shockwave tour is no longer as advertised, Voivod really wanted to be touring but the situation was out of the band's control and the tour producers could not live up to the promises.

Voivod would be the main draw for me.

Having said that, it's not because they don't tour outside Montreal much, because they do. They toured a bit in Europe last year, and they were on tour with Kreator in the U.S. in 2010. They just did Roadburn (again) a few months ago, too.

I agree. Reminds me of the Mayhem tour a few years ago, which Cattle Decapitation was also on as well, where almost if not all the opening acts dropped off. This is worse because all the bands dropped off before the tour even began, if it doesn't get cancelled all together.

Voivod is. They may not be very popular these days, but they hardly tour. The last time they were in California was 2003, so I'm sure most of the people would turn up for them, at least here. The problem with this tour (aside from Fear Factory headlining) was that the lineup was all over the place. Most people would only be interested in two or three bands tops.

oh and from the metalsucks comments
It was poor tickets sales and they basically told the lower bands they pretty much could still do the tour but they couldn't pay them. So basically they wanted the lower tier bands to play for free. I assume they ended up also asking the bigger bands to take a pay cut and i'm sure it had disaster written all over it. The Reading PA date had 35 advance ticket sales.

about half of the shockwave dates are in fairly close proximity to places fear factory hit up on their may tour (i.e. reading), so id imagine that was a big factor in the poor sales. 35 presales doesnt seem totally unrealistic to me.

if that tour didnt happen and shockwave lineup was FF/voivod/shadows fall/revocation/a couple of the smaller bands, and they stuck to the bigger markets, it probably would have done ok.

One complaint we heard from a band that dropped off the tour was the routing was too insane to turn any sort of profit over. The drives would have been brutal and any guarantees the band made would have to all go towards gas, so some of the openers feared they would lose money by playing this tour, which is something a band always tries to avoid.

I don't about where you're from, but here Shockwave was at a much bigger venue than Occupation Domination (I can't comment on the turnout of that show, I didn't go).

I think the issue was the support bands weren't huge draws. I'm sorry I love Cattle Decapitation, but when they're are billed third from the top, your probably not going to sell to many tickets.

Which is why I don't get why they're coming to the same venue now with all locals, that'd be even less a draw(only thing is it'd be fun/weird seeing FF in a crowd of like 20 people)

I also see you haven't been keeping up with FF in a while. Dino is the only "Fat one left in the band.

No, I'm aware.

Is there an opener for Fear Factory or is it locals at every show?
