Because I thought all the other tours had already sucked up the bands of this kind that were available this year... evidently not!

After last year's stellar lineup, I expected better. But considering nearly 60% of those bands have already played, I'm calling bullshit. If they revisit the cock rock douche friendly format, I can see Buckcherry and Volbeat doing this, but I'm crossing my fingers they don't. Keep with the alt/metal mix they gave us last year. I'd like to see Foo Fighters, QOTSA, ADTR, KSE, All That Remains, The Used, etc. Hell, I'd even be okay with a band like Manchester Orchestra getting thrown on a tour like this.

Aerosmith and Slash, KISS and Def Leppard, Summer Slaughter (if they aren't fucking with us this year), Metal Alliance, Motley Crue and Alice Cooper.

Since all the shit bands are being announced that they are touring together, either the rest of the good bands are touring together, or no good bands are touring together because they will be making albums this summer.

Come to think of it, I think both of those will be true.

Last year was decent by touring festival standards.

Last year had exactly one good band. This year, assuming that ends up being the lineup, also has exactly one good band. But this year's good band is far inferior to last year's good band.

Sadly, the best year they had was the first year, and that year really only had like 3 good bands and 1 or 2 ok bands.

Official announcement coming 6/17. My guess is Godsmack is on here. I'm sure if you piece together the bands from all the recent destination festivals, you'll have a good idea of who's on here. Smart money is on Rob Zombie, Buckcherry, Alter Bridge, Theory of a Deadman, Pop Evil, Papa Roach, Cilver, Limp Bizkit, Chevelle, Rise Against, Seether, Mastodon, Kyng, or Burn Halo being on this... obviously not all these bands, but probably about 50% of them. If I had to take a stab at what to expect, I'd say you're going to see the tour shape up close to this -

Main Stage:
Godsmack
Rob Zombie
Buckcherry
Alter Bridge
Chevelle
Theory of a Deadman

Side Stage:
Mastodon
Kyng
Otherwise
Burn Halo

Side Stage:
Clutch
Pop Evil
Nonpoint
Cilver

Considering that Clutch is going on tour in September, they are not doing Uproar. Conflict of Cities, or whatever that contract law is where you can't play twice in a city in a certain time frame.

Doing a side stage @ RotR isn't quite like doing Uproar. They did Sounds of the Underground almost 10 years ago and their name isn't ever even rumored in these big package tours. Their sales keep growing. They do just fine w/o these types of tours. Plus who wants a 35 min set?

06-09-2014, 10:03 PM
There's no way Mastodon does a festival like this. Especially on a side stage. that's just plain stupid

awoodz92
06-09-2014, 11:22 PM
Mastodon could definitely do this tour. It's ran by the same guys who do Mayhem, which they've done several times, they have a new album coming out, and as far as I know, no touring plans this Fall. And just like other heavy bands of similar popularity (Sevendust, Hellyeah, In This Moment, etc), they'd likely be regulated to a side stage... possibly a main stage opener, but they try to keep that pretty radio friendly on this tour.

MPF
06-09-2014, 11:28 PM
Mastodon isn't nearly light enough to play Uproar. Just look at their current setlist. How many hard Rock/Radio friendly songs are on it?

Not enough to justify being on this tour. There is a reason why this tour is marketed towards Mainstream Top 40 Rock. Mastodon isn't Mainstream Top 40 Rock.

slapguitarer
06-09-2014, 11:30 PM
While they've been getting more commercial/radio success recently, I wouldn't expect the first tour they embark on after releasing their new album would be this. They're still more of a heavy metal band than anything, so I just don't think they'd do this. And if they did, they'd be on the same MainStage slot they had on mayhem.

godsmack, theory of a deadman, buckcherry, poop evil, new medicine and redlight king are both on pain in the grass (9/12) and aftershock (9/14). uproar made up a large chunk of PITG 2013.

rob zombie, chevelle, clutch all have their own tours in this time frame.

i dont think mastodon is as unlikely for a tour like this as some of you seem to think, but the fact they go from raleigh to chicago to sacramento in the span of a week makes me think its unlikely they are part of anything other than their own festival centric run.

This show always has some kinda tits and ass type attraction that kills time between sets on the main stage. They usually compete for Miss Uproar or something like that. SuicideGirls would be a refreshing change of pace.

Suicide Girls are doing a weekend at House Of Blues Chicago and you bet your ass I'll be there!


But if Zombie and Godsmack both played Zombie would headline.

Also Mastodon isn't on this since they are doing Riot Fest which is in the same time frame and because the crowd wouldn't give two shits about them on Uproar.

And if everyone says this is just for Top 40 bands is Rob Zombie considered that? I've only heard Dracula on the radio a few times before in Chicago and thats usually at random times.

Can't be true. Suicide Girls have a huge fall tour plus there is NO WAY IN HELL they are going to let Uproar which tries to be all ages let a adult burlesque show happen during it. Also way to hot for them to do their show.

I mean Suicide Girls are here in Oct and I want to say its a 21+ show.

I just don't see Uproar having their first "band" being a bunch of girls dancing to a DJ and stripping.

Think of Zombie's stage & then Godsmacks. If you have Godsmacks headline how much time is spent tearing down the monstrosity of his set vs the fairly simple set of Godsmacks. It'd be atleast an hour for a changeover from Zombie to Godsmack.

Previous years they did basically a beauty contest sponsored by a clothing line where it was a bunch of heavily tattooed/scantily clad girls. I don't see this being something out of the question. It should be noted like 7 of these bands have played the main stage at Rock on the Range, that's unheard of. Last year had one.

who even knows what their involvement would entail. could just be in between band "entertainment". with less skin than usual. whatever it is will be far less than what their own shows would be, so i dont think having their own tour makes a difference.

They're doing smaller venues now, still decent size but not what they were. They used to headline the outdoor ampitheater in Camden, NJ but last time they headlined in that area(which admittedly was 2010) they played it indoor with no lawn. Then again they've also done a lot of festivals(Crüe Fest, Mayhem, Uproar) so who knows? I just know this will be a bigger draw than last year. I'm just wondering if it does Camden because in the first four years they've only hit there once(2011) every other year one of the headliners ended up doing a local radio show at the same venue instead(in the case of 2012 two of the headliners).

Age restrictions at shows are for alcohol and money purposes. It has nothing to do with the content. They don't care how appropriate Suicide Girls are for minors. They just don't want minors taking up space in the venue when they aren't going to shell out tons of money on beer.

Seether is probably the only band that makes this package worthwhile. Godsmack is very "meh" live, Buckcherry has been hit or miss for me, and I could care less about seeing Skillet and their Jesus crap music. Unless there is someone on the side stage that is worth a damn, I'll likely skip this.

I've like Seether and Godsmack for awhile, Buckcherry has always been good when I've seen them(and for that matter Pop Evil has been good the last few times I've seen them). Skillet I've seen once and wasn't bad as long the speeches are at a minimum. I'm hoping of Aftershock is any hint they'll be decent side stage bands. Last year I think I liked 2 all day(Danko Jones and the Dead Daisies).

If this does Holmdel, NJ(like it has 3 of the first 4 years) I'd be down. Nothing like a lazy end of summer show in a seated venue. Especially when every year they've had it it's taken til the last band or two to actually fill up.

And what the fuck is this "because of the end time" bullshit? Part of what made going to a show awesome was the late hours you'd get home on a weeknight and you'd be dead tired at school and people would be all "Hey why are you so tired" and then you'd say "Because I went to a concert last night" and you'd be the biggest badass in class for like 7 minutes. It's like venues are trying to be parents. Or are they worried about getting sued because some kid didn't do his homework the night of the show?

And what the fuck is this "because of the end time" bullshit? Part of what made going to a show awesome was the late hours you'd get home on a weeknight and you'd be dead tired at school and people would be all "Hey why are you so tired" and then you'd say "Because I went to a concert last night" and you'd be the biggest badass in class for like 7 minutes. It's like venues are trying to be parents. Or are they worried about getting sued because some kid didn't do his homework the night of the show?

A lot of it has to do with city wide ordinances, not just venue rules. I know Atlanta is supposed to have weekday shows end at 11. My guess is they think having less people downtown at night will somehow cut down on crime.

Chicago is strict on times. Most all ages shows here are to be over by 9:30pm (House Of Blues is STRICT on it). Not a minute over.

Or a few venues have to have their all ages show over by 10:00pm since that is curfew.

17+ shows can go till 1pm I want to say and anything over that doesn't have a time limit.

It's not about venues acting like parents its that they can't have kids running around all night then wonder home in the middle of the night.

This, in Chicago it's more of if your underage you can be picked up for curfew (that never happens)

you truly are fucking retarded
You are truly banned for a week. Your post was just brought to my attention. It is unacceptable. Read The Law.

FYI: ES156 and I don't read every single post on the board. We've relied on our community for years to help out, and it has worked out pretty well so far. It's easier to ban than babysit. And we rarely have to do it.

In conclusion: Don't Be A Dick. The essence of The Law.

Think of Zombie's stage & then Godsmacks. If you have Godsmacks headline how much time is spent tearing down the monstrosity of his set vs the fairly simple set of Godsmacks. It'd be atleast an hour for a changeover from Zombie to Godsmack.

Actually, at Mayhem last year, I was surprised at how quickly RZ's set was assembled, with everything being modular and on wheels now, it's a pretty quick changeover!

so sorry steev, lets make out and touch dicks

that said, ed, perhaps you should add something to the law about continuously being careless and lazy, then maybe i wouldnt have to be a dick

i mean, the setlists forum is expected to follow a format, properly credit, etc, is it too much to ask to strive for a little effort and accuracy around these parts as well?

fyi, travis the dipshit and ed, all banning does is do me a favor, not to mention remove one of the few people around here sees this place as a useful resource, and for the most part tries to help make it as such

im sure this will get me banned again, and thats fine, not incredily interested in being involved with a community that cant take a little good ol internet shittalking and dickheadedness when called for

ill even report this post myself to make sure it doesnt get overlooked

that said ed, if you ever feel like turning this place around, ive got years of vb experience and plenty of free time. you know where to find my email.

Redlight King was just main stage at ROTR and Buckcherry draws at least 1-2000 people around here. Plus theyre playing Camden where every 2 years or so Godsmack headlines and draws a big crowd.

You also have to factor in the people who are more likely to go to a package tour with a bunch of bands they like. Sure, Seether may only draw 900 people when they're on their own with some openers no one has heard of, but you might get some casual fans who are willing to shell out the money if it's to watch a ton of bands that they like. It's not going to be simply comprised of "Here are the Godsmack fans, here are the Seether fans, here are the Buckcherry fans."

Exactly, we had a radio show here that was PACKED and the bands were Rob Zombie, Volbeat, Fuel, and Redlight King(any of those at best do a 2000 venue and that's sometimes a stretch.)

Seriously. The rest of the tour may do well, but this show is gonna be empty. People already bitch about going to the amphitheater that it's usually at and that's only 45 minutes outside the city. This place is an hour and a half farther than that. Peru has a fucking population of 10,000 and there isn't a city within an hour of it. Their best hope is that some of the methed out hillbillies from Southern Illinois will make the drive up.

The tour has existed for 5 years(not to mention all the years before as Taste of Chaos) and never had a headliner cancel before. People need to calm down already and stop with the nonsense.

Not at all. Although it was kind of a bitch move. You can just play your damn songs on a smaller stage and you don't need effects if you're good.

By the time they moved their gear over the show would have started late and still ended before it got dark. Basically the first band would go on at 5 and the last would be done at 7. The side stage was probably set up already before they found out about these problems and it would have just been a half assed set if they attempted it. People need to go after the casino since it was their ignorance that allowed this to happen. Especially anyone who paid more for seats since it became an all GA show.

This tour has no business in a venue that isn't a big outdoor ampitheater. When the people running the tour know the venues ahead of time they accomodate(like they do at Mayhem atleast for 2 or 3 shows a year), but this was a disaster.

If you ever go back to the Sherman you're missing the point, they fucked up huge. I went the following show in Camden and there was no plausible scenario where Godsmack played on that stage unless every other band canceled and the show would still end by 7.

If you ever go back to the Sherman you're missing the point, they fucked up huge. I went the following show in Camden and there was no plausible scenario where Godsmack played on that stage unless every other band canceled and the show would still end by 7.

It is both of their fault; which is why I am going to have nothing to do with either like I said above. The Sherman main stage is just fine for most shows (I'm assuming it is the same one they always use up there). Maybe it wasn't good enough for all the pyro and whatnot (which is what I heard), but that doesn't mean it isn't good enough to use the lighting system and play a show on. They are all trying to blame each other; it is both of their fault.
