Well that's what I mean, that's from a fan's point of view. If they really were that successful in a particular city/state, then they'd come back. The fact that they don't, or at least don't on every tour, tells you one thing quite plainly: it wasn't that successful last time. Money drives everything, and if there's a place where they know they'll make some, you can be sure as shit they'd play there.

Also, this. Seriously, what is this, the 1980s? Fuck waiting for the enemy to hit me before I get a chance to hit back.

You forget that it's not the band's decision where to play.

I don't. He probably does though. By "they" I mean everyone involved, management, booking agents, promoters, etc. If there's money to be made, one of them will know where that is and will get a show there. If there isn't, they won't.

There's also routing and business relations, too. Bands are, more often than not, playing everywhere it's feasible to play on a tour without losing money.

Current one is comic book movie fans. Just accept you're never going to get a perfect adaptation and live with it.

Well, I'm mainly talking about Alice Cooper when it comes to this, skipped Georgia last tour and is skipping it again this upcoming one.
