i never thought about it like that. thank god i'm not a fan of black metal bands like these so i don't have to pay this much to see them. i don't see why they don't just do a full US North American tour. i'm sure they'll fill up most venues.

I guess they can't! Otherwise why wouldn't they have done it?

eh think of it this way, it's not nearly as bad as all these talentless pop artists charging 100's. i mean i know most metal bands play in smaller venues but it didn't even cost me that much to see maiden at the verizon amphitheater 2 years ago and its still not that much to see them this year either. and i agree with andrew... only 4 shows for a n american tour? only 2 of which are even in the US?

yeah that's true but for the most part it's in an arena and ANY arena show is usually expensive. not 100's but usually like 40's or 50's. i mean when Emperor played the Key Club a few years ago they charged $50. i mean the Key Club is cool and all but isn't the nicest venue, and doesn't it hold like a few hundred? paying $50 to see a black metal band play in a small club doesn't seem worth it to me unless you like the band a lot.

I know the black metal crowd here would go absolutely apeshit for an Immortal show.

Haha. Yeah .. this show was fucking awesome. I enjoyed the fuck out of myself
May be it was also the frustration of March 31st that was coming out. Plus the show was fun for other personal reasons.
