I would kind of agree, because I would rather see, for example, power metal with more power metal, NWOBHish with more NWOBHMish.
But perhaps the managers or whomever books the tours is trying to get more exposure for the bands- some sort of crossover appeal/attempt?
I will say these tactics have various success rates, as I've been to power metal shows and seen death metal openers be ignored or get minimal applause. Stuff like that
