Interesting discussion. I was recently offered free tickets to the Carnival of Madness tour and had zero interest in going out of principle. How are Altar Bridge opening for Theory of a Nickelback Clone? Funny thing is 2 days later the show got moved to a smaller venue due to lack of ticket sales. If AB were headlining and playing this set (plus Metalingus preferably) I'd go in a minute.
