Besides AinC and Jane's not many people wanna pay to see the other bands. I am glad Uproar changed it up this year, but they should have put some bigger bands on the side stages.

This tour either overvalues or undervalues bands

Like having Godsmack and Staind billed so low last year, where this year Circa Survive is not a main stage band by any means

No surprise, bumping this.
My buddy actually got some for 10 last week at the ZZ Top/Kid Rock show.

I mean your average crowd more than likely doesn't know anyone from the side stages and even other than AIC and Jane aren't familiar with other main stagers.

Jane's Addiction plays clubs and they are now 2nd billed on main stage.

Tickets are selling like shit for the show i'm going to next sunday as well. I'm a little surprised by this because our local rock station plays the shit out of AIC, both new and old material. I thought for sure they would be able to draw better around here just based off that. I guess AIC isn't as popular as I thought even though they always seem to get a ton of hype.

I think it just has to do with the price of the show. I mean pit tickets for the show i'm going to are $100 after the charges. I don't think the strength of the bill has a lot to do with it. For the most part if a package tour has a strong headliner or a couple of strong main stage bands that's usually enough to get people to come in droves.

Also, even though I only paid $15 for my lawn ticket after charges, if only I knew this tour would sell like absolute shit so I could grab a decent lower pavillion seating for like $10 more. Ah well.

They're just not that big. And I don't know anybody who would pay to see Jane's Addiction, their name precedes their music.
The AIC/Deftones/Mastodon tour filled small arenas, and in San Jose it didn't even quite sell out. I don't think JA/Coheed can even match what Deftones/Dong draw, plus all the other bands are basically moot because it's not a summer show and a lot of the shows are happening during the week.
