Also, I just realized this. If the tour was all said and done and none of the bands were touring this summer....they would have said it by now, rather then saying it all tomorrow. They wouldn't leave people to wonder unless there was a Plan B.

With a post like this it pretty much calls out "CANCELED", but hopefully, AND HOPEFULLY, I am an optimistic guy afterall, they will announce a line up change and the tour will still happen :light:

I honestly don't give a crap if LERMUHGERD is on it or not.

Pretty much this. I was in it for Dethklok mostly; Lamb of God was just a bonus.

I got pretty fucking lucky with the announcement too - I'll be in San Antonio tomorrow through the 31st, so I'll know if I should buy the tickets or just not go.

All 3 Bands are scheduled to play Heavy TO. I hope that if the tour's cancelled, that Dethklok and Gojira still make it out to play Heavy TO and MTL.

ive said this before, but I don't think smaller RoadRunner bands do headlining tours. they're not exactly Nickleback.

kommie
07-25-2012, 07:16 PM
because bands have to be nickelback sized to do a headline tour /SARCASM

the notion of roadrunner purposely not allowing small bands to do headline tours is ridiculous

I just don't see them doing letting Gojira, an overseas French band doing it.

RoadRunner just closed two of their offices down, will probably close another down, and their original CEO is supposed to leave. that and Gojira's new CD sold 11,000 copies here first week, not a large number. I love Gojira, but I don't see it happening. Others here have agreed with me, don't remember who though.

Gojira did a headlining tour before they were on Roadrunner (if my memory is correct, I forget when they signed), so I can't imagine there being much of a problem now that they have more exposure on a larger label. I think the only thing that would block it at this point is logistics / planning / other bands. If the original tour falls through, i'd be all for a Gojira headlining tour, I couldn't possibly give less of a shit about Dethklok.

Cannibal Corpse sold 9,846 in its first week. 11k may sound like a small number, but for a metal band that's actually really good.

Any band can do a headlining tour. That Gojira can do a headlining tour isn't up for question, it's how many people they can pull in at their shows. I'd guess something like 300-400

Maybe I'm just thinking about my part of the country but I'm guessing in some places 3-400 people still might be more than they could get in some places. No offense to them but I don't see them pulling in a ton of people.

Just saw a Facebook post from the band, tour cancelled.

Here it is:

LAMB OF GOD/ DETHKLOK TOUR CANCELED...

Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.

There's no real reason the tour can't continue with replacement band(s). Dethklok & Gojira are getting screwed over just like all the bands on Shockwave, who had touring plans for a month+ , then cancelled because of the "headliner". They're losing out on income too, and unlike LoG, they have no reason not to tour.


What happened to Randy sucks, but Dethklok & Gojira shouldn't have to not tour because of it.

kommie
07-26-2012, 09:05 AM
I don't think the promoters would just add bands last second. If I paid to see Lamb of God, Dethklok, and Gojira I'd be pissed to see LoG replaced with someone like Bullet for my Valentine, AILD, or some shit like that. I've always wanted to see Dethklok, but previous tours they've done, the other bands to me were 'meh'. Plus, I'm rather sure LoG have more ticket selling power than Dethklok.

That's what you implied with your vague statement. When a headlining band drops off of a tour everybody who bought tickets up to that point has the choice to receive a refund. At this point I doubt they would be able to find a replacement, seeing as the tour is days away from starting. And for Dethklok and Gojira to tour on their own they would have to play at much smaller venues, because a lot of people would likely opt for the refund without Lamb of God. Canceling the tour is simply the best option right now.

07-26-2012, 09:33 AM
Except two things (not that it matters, what happened happened and it sucks for LoG):



They've known it was a possibility LoG couldn't do it for almost a month now, and the tour was billed as a co-headliner with Dethklok.

I don't think they anticipated it going on this long, so they probably didn't line up a replacement in time. I don't think it being billed as a co-headliner would matter, since they are still one of the headlining bands. But if they were really specific about it then people would only get refunds for the days Lamb of God closed the show, which would piss off a lot of fans.

the scale of this tour was predicated by the combined popularity of LOG and dethklok. for dethklok/gojira to continue on the tour and not lose a ton of money and play to half empty arenas, they would have had to downgrade venues, and even trying to do so a month ago when randy was first taken in was most likely not enough time to do so. youve gotta realize the touring market has gotten so saturated that a lot of times tours have be planned upwards of 6 months or more, so i can only imagine there wasnt much available to them, therefore little choice but to cancel.

dcmetal108
07-26-2012, 12:56 PM
Here's what I think.

Dethklok could do like a HOB (1,000-1,200 capacity) headlining tour with great support and do well.

Gojira would prolly do a club tour (500 person capacity) and I don't think that would even sell out.

Gojira sold out a 500-person capacity venue when they headlined here in 2009 with barely any actual support at all. I have no doubt that they could have a successful headlining tour now with their increased popularity. Provided they don't book shows in the shit markets I hear about on here :lol:. Hopefully them and Dethklok are back as soon as possible.

Yeah, I don't get why people keep saying they wouldn't be able to pull of a headlining tour. Not only did they already pull one off, but they've toured the US numerous times as a support band. It's not like they're new to the US market. And as I pointed out a couple pages back, their new album outsold Cannibal Corpse's in the first week. I'm sure they would be able to fill up clubs just fine.

Let me show you their current itinerary for the next month.

Aug 9 -- NYC
Aug 11 -- Heavy TO
Aug 12 -- Heavy MTL
Aug 13 -- Worcester, MA
Aug 18 -- Knotfest (Somerset, WI)

Do you see the gap between the Massachusetts show and Knotfest? There's no reason for them to not try to book dates between them. And if they are able to book more afterward, why not? They seemed to book the NYC and MA dates just fine, so it's not completely out of the question to book more. Now aside from the fact that you don't know that they won't be able to find venues on short notice, do you really think they're the type of band to stay at hotels? To my knowledge, most bands their size sleep in their vans, or if they're lucky their label will rent them a bus. With that said, no, I don't think they could put together a month and a half long tour, but I think they could put together enough dates to call it a small tour.

07-29-2012, 09:10 AM
im very well aware of that schedule, and as ive said earlier in this very thread, i was already expecting them to attempt to fill in that gap. by "whole tour" i figured you were talking something like filling in the entire 2 months they had allotted for the dethklok tour.

Oh, I wouldn't expect them to do a tour that extensive even if they had a proper one. I just think they could fill in some of that time to make the trip out here worthwhile. Whether it be just a few more dates or a couple weeks, they should try to make the most out of the situation they're in.

Not to be a buzzkill, but I have a feeling none of this is going to happen.

Some evidence, straight from Dethklok's home page:

July 29, 2012 | No Comments

Dethklok and Lamb Of God have cancelled their upcoming tour. The much anticipated tour, set to commence on August 1, 2012, cannot go on as scheduled due to the arrest and incarceration of Lamb Of God singer, Randy Blythe. Gojira was the opening act.

ADULT SWIM STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING TOUR:

In light of circumstances beyond our control, the upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour has been canceled. Refunds will be available to customers who already purchased tickets through their point of purchase. We thank Dethklok fans for their continued support and look forward to releasing information about the bandís upcoming third album and a planned fall tour in the coming weeks.

LAMB OF GOD STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING TOUR:

Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the bandís co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randyís release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randyís release, it is the bandís intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.
