Attendance figure from one of my friends who works at the Garden: 5,700.

So, they could've done Tsongas & not even sold it out.

They should have made this A House of Blues tour

I know ticket prices are a bit high for this tour, but for a band whose last 2 albums sold over 150,000 copies in the first week, this is quite shocking.

They played St. Louis on Friday and it sold better than I expected. By the time A7X came on I'd guesstimate 7000 to 8000 people in attendance.

I think House of Blues would still be wayyyy to small for A7X. Doesn't Deftones usually headline HOB-sized venues?

This tour seems way more suitable for smaller ampitheatres/arenas (5,000-10,000) if anything else.

Yup. Deftones just did the Boston HOB earlier this year, and that's the biggest one (2,425 capacity). The smallest one is New Orleans (I think) with a capacity of around 850.

You know, my friends in the lawn said the exact same thing, but i was in the back left seats and I thought they sounded awesome. Sure, it wasnt perfect, but it was pretty damn good. It might have just been an issue based on where you were.

and they sold out that and the previous time well in advance

wish there was a way to know how many of those 5,700 went solely for deftones

I noticed that tickets for upcoming shows aren't more than $55. That's pretty cheap for an arena show and there's no reason they shouldn't be selling less that 10,000 per show at those prices. Were they that much more for The Garden?
