    Villains is still my favorite album that's come out in the last 12 months (probably favorite rock record of the last several years). As unstable as they have been live with Josh's struggles, their studio efforts are top notch and relevant. I just hope they can all figure it out so they can keep making music. We've all seen what happens to most bands when the singer can't keep clean and under control.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Super-bummer of a show tonight up in Madison, WI.

    Outdoor show, great weather, amazing opening set by Royal Blood, a stellar long setlist on paper. Then Josh went off the rails, they cut 7 songs and 40 minutes off the show and walked off after 80 minutes. 

    Heartbreaker. Drove 6 hours after a shitty day for that. 
    I was at this show also, very disappointed with how it ended.  Hopefully Josh will take some time and clean himself up, no one knew why the show ended abruptly within reason.  I read somewhere that before No One Knows, there wasn't a lot of applause from the VIP GA section from Josh's story.

    Most of the artists I love have had negative incidents/headlines reported about them.  Look at EV's reputation in the 90's.  I don't think it makes them bad people.  Hell, I still pay to see Noel & Liam Gallagher.  Trent Reznor, Josh, Maynard, Thom Yorke, every one of them has a reputation.  The reason why certain bands are great live is because they are really on the edge when they are on stage (EV in 93/94).

    Unfortunately, when they start cutting/canceling shows, I think they've gotten too far away from fans and need to get off the road for a bit.  It's a day at the office for them, it's a countdown event for us.
    Hopefully Josh will use this as a means to get himself cleaned up.  I'd have no problems if he did that and the performances got stronger.
    there will be too much pressure on him from all sides to finish the tour. and they are touring non-stop pretty much through September. one month off between Spain and Japan. Brutal. 
    True, but hopefully this won't lead Josh into a spiral that he can't get out of and clean himself up.  Hopefully the fans would understand that Josh needs to get himself together before he can play another live show.
    If people are still going to GnR shows, I'm sure Josh will also be forgiven for whatever crap he pulls while he's having a rough time.

    I don't know about that. Axl was tolerated because the demand for him/that bad was through the roof. And he only really did that back in the 90's. When I went to see Axl and friends in 2006, he hit the stage at midnight. And that's all people said about it. what they failed to report was that he wasn't going on late, it was a half hour after the last act. there were 5 acts that night. It went till nearly 3 in the morning with only gaps between sets, nothing more. 

    if Josh is continually loaded and playing shitty shows and/or cutting shows short, they aren't nearly famous enough to keep fans coming out and risking their money and time for that.

    Yeah, at least not in arenas.  Not sure if his bandmates would tolerate it either.  I'm sure that was a condition for Slash and Duff too.  2 hours late was fine when we were drunk, high and getting laid backstage in our 20s, but now I want to play the show, take a bath and go to bed.

    Somebody in that reddit thread said they were standing next to the sound techs and some park rangers (or whoever controls that stuff) had come to check the noise levels (and possibly told them to turn it down)  I could see that pissing Josh off quite a bit.

    Its tough to be an asshole and a rock start these days with all of the social media. 
    This guy probably would have been considered a saint in the 70s and 80s if everything was documented.

    Someone on facebook complained that their precious snowflake would be losing 2 hours of sleep because they live near the venue.  The venue offered them tickets to Ultimate Frisbee this weekend, which is perfect for Madison hippie/hipster families.  Pretty good PR, actually.

    Normally this place does concerts on weekends.  Not sure why they had Queens come out on a Tuesday, unless that's all that was available.  Their last show was in Winnipeg a few days ago.

    originally the Peg show was supposed to be Sunday. got bumped to Saturday for the Jets game Sunday afternoon. Monday would have originally been scheduled as a travel day.

    I saw him twice so far this year.  The tour opening and a few weeks later.  

    The first show was great.  Band was tight and no one was inebriated.

    Second time Josh claimed how lit up he was but the band still played pretty good.  I thought it was odd that he would brag about playing drunk.  Apparently he's been doing this the whole tour.

    he did make comments in winnipeg about partying because it was saturday night and all that. he seemed happy but not loaded.

    I think they'll be fine. They have plenty of fans and make amazing music.... Are you actually worried? It's not like he's bailing on a regular basis or anything. There have only been a few incidents since 1998.... If Josh is going through a tough time with substances and it negatively affects this tour, then he will be like the 1 millionth rock star with that problem - it's hardly a reason to start thinking all his fans will bail along with his bandmates. I mean geez, I at least hope his bandmates are more loyal and caring than that, after 20 years.
    Them breaking up or just becoming suddenly washed up is not at all my concern. My concern is that Josh will OD or die for some related reason. That is why I'm hoping his bandmates and anyone else in his personal life do their best to help him through whatever problems he's having. If that means they have to cancel the rest of the tour, then that seems like a good reason to do it. That wouldn't be an unprecedented move.

    only if he consistently cuts shows short or plays awful because he's out of his head. it takes a while for that to happen though. people have to be personaly affected by these things for it to have a meaningful impact. like given2fly23's issue above. will he ever travel for a Queens show again? highly doubt it. it won't deter me from going to another show, as I've seen them 5 times without incident. but if it happens to me? yeah, I might skip the following show. 

    it also makes a big difference how much press it gets. 

    Axl's antics were an annoyance (in 93 I personally experienced his nonsense), but he still would play a full amazing show. late, yes, but still you got your money's worth.

    How about Morrissey? He still seems to sell tickets, and he has cancelled 127 shows since 2012. 280 since 1988. :lol:

    you know, I was thinking about him as we were talking about this, and I simply can't understand his fan's patience with his bullshit. Maybe I'm wrong. I just can't imagine the concert going public would put up with that with a mainstream band. Maybe because Morrissey has cancelled so much, that it's come full circle and people are snatching up tickets hoping they'll finally get to see him live? kind of like buying a scratch ticket.

    What the hell happened?  Seeing them in Rochester Friday, will probably be done with these guys if they pull something like this on Friday without any legit reason
    Same. Gonna be a 12 hour round trip for me and I can't say I'd be happy to drive that much for a short/shitty set. :/

    In good news, I saw them in London last night and they absolutely killed it. Josh was in fine form. They did a 22 song set filled with deep cuts - best time I’ve ever seen them. Rochester is in for a great show tonight.

    I recall in the sound board area that there was a discussion with two park policemen and another official talking about a noise violation during the performance.  Now I've read that Queens violated the noise ordinance during the show in Madison, WI and is the catalyst for the show ending early.

    Sounds like that early walkoff had as much, if not more to do with sound issues as anything else.

    I’m optimistic about tonight, I cant wait to see them again. The setlist in recent nights has been awesome.

    I did think that the sound last night could have been helped by lowering the volume.  Everything was just too loud.  I get that it’s Rock and Roll and all, but sometimes too loud can be bad.

    Sweet mother of crap, this band was f’ing flawless tonight. 

    I dont have a single complaint, they were as on as I’ve ever seen them. Josh was in great spirits & seemed sober.... John Theodore was a machine, I could watch him play drums all day long.

    This band is amazing.

    Agree with all of this. My fifth time seeing them, and I have yet to be disappointed. They absolutely killed tonight. 

    I was lucky to get on the rail and Jon Theodore was nice enough to send a stick my way. Great night.

    I have no idea why anybody goes to the shows and supports this d-bag 
    Most of the artists I love have had negative incidents/headlines reported about them.  Look at EV's reputation in the 90's.  I don't think it makes them bad people.  Hell, I still pay to see Noel & Liam Gallagher.  Trent Reznor, Josh, Maynard, Thom Yorke, every one of them has a reputation.  The reason why certain bands are great live is because they are really on the edge when they are on stage (EV in 93/94).

    Unfortunately, when they start cutting/canceling shows, I think they've gotten too far away from fans and need to get off the road for a bit.  It's a day at the office for them, it's a countdown event for us.
    EV kicked a woman in the face??? On purpose? 

    Not sure why people make excuses for this loser

    He drunkenly kicked the camera.  It was a stupid mistake that 99% of the population doesn't make, but barely newsworthy and I'm sure the lady is just fine.   If that is the worst thing he does then good for him.

    Awesome, glad to hear they're still rockin' it, and that any bad shows are just the type that all bands have once in a while.
    I will say that I hate their stage setup for this tour. Those stupid light bars look dumb and obstruct the view once their smoke machine is cranking. I remember resenting them when I saw their show, lol.

    The sound was iffy where I was too (rail to the left of Josh). But honestly, I was just happy to see Josh seeming sober/okay after the Madison show that I didn't mind too much. Got a setlist from the stage after the show and saw they cut Unreborn Again and that was disappointing, but they played You Can't Quit Me Baby and First It Giveth so I can't complain too much.
