Shinedown: 4 albums, highest one charting at #4, combined sales of 3 million in the states.

Godsmack: 5 albums, last 3 consecutively debuting at #1, combined sales of 8.5 million in the states.

Last headlining tour in support of a new album, Shinedown didn't even sell out a 1,500 capacity club in Rhode Island, whereas Godsmack had no trouble putting 6,000 asses in the seats of the Tsongas Arena.

In no way, shape or form is Shinedown a bigger band than Godsmack.

This. They aren't even bothering playing a song off Us and Them which I think is sad. Really glad I saw them in 2008, back when they were still doing Left Out, Burning Bright and Heroes.

I meant I am not a huge fan. Those songs plus Save Me and I Dare You. Its truly lame. Those first 2 albums are really solid.

Agree 100%, the same can be said for A7X but you can say the first 5 records with them.

A7X switches it up some though, remember they had fans vote for the setlist last year. They played songs from all the records.

I'm pretty sure Lupo's capacity is above 1500

NickLed19 08-30-2012 02:33 PM

And Shinedown was selling out pretty much every venue this year. Shinedown is just way bigger on the radio. They had 5 #1 singles on the last album.
