Scorps in clubs in the states recently? Uh, no.

Last 2 Scorps US tours (2010 & 2012) were 99% summer sheds and arenas.

Oops, I should do my research! God damn me! Haven't been able to say that in quite some time! I wonder how well they did at those venues.

Don't know about other places, but Scorps did pretty awful in the bay. They had to sell $5 tickets on the day of the show for the Concord Pavilion date.

Scorps and Priest have the same damn problem, their management thinks they're huge hockey arena/shed acts when they could probably do big theaters or small arenas at best.

I do heard about the $5 tickets thing in 2010. I went to both Mountain View and LA show last year. Both show were packed, and the LA gig was @ Staples

Also, can someone tell me how big QR was back in the day?

When I saw them for the Empire, Promised Land and Hear tours they played good size venues, like the Boston Garden and Great Woods. After that it was theaters.

In a way though, I still am interested in exactly what point you're trying to get across.
We aren't being subtle. You think it's cool that QR w/ Todd La Torretot is playing a goddamn dirt bike park.

All sorts of reasons for curfews in the UK. It's 11pm generally, which above anything else simply makes sense. There's absolutely no need for shows to go on late other than it's apparently "cool". When it's earlier than that it'll either be because it's a Sunday, or because the venue is used for something else afterwards, like a club.

If the proper bill plays the Onslaught show, I'll probably go to that. If not though, which I'm currently doubting, then I'll probably hit 'ryche.

Anyway, moving on.

Hmmmmm, I wonder what this is about. I'm willing to bet they'll stream the entire album.
