    Didnt get floor? Not to worry. Its RATM.

    Back in 99 when GenX was leading the charge I was stuck in the upper deck in Detroit. Organization began between the opening band and Rage to rush the floor. At least 75% of the upper deck queued up on the main concourse in the concession areas. There were 2 main floor rushes. Looking back up at least 75% of the upper deck was now on the floor. It was just a swirling mass of chaos. It wasnt controlled like a metallica or pantera pit.  

    The SWAT team was there in full body armor, batons, shields, the works. They were pushed back as 2 guys with batons and shields cant stop thousands charging down some stairs. If you wanted floor you were on the floor. Unless you were the poor sap who they managed to club. 

    We will see if these millennials and generation z types are as angry as we were in the 90s or if they are as soft as the are portrayed. 

    I'm an old head now, I'll enjoy my seat but I hope to see the kids carrying on the legacy.

    I was thinking of getting my area organized to fold up our chairs and make it another GA area?  We are on the floor.

    Either that or jump the rail?  I'm hoping a few still want to do it, lol.

    I was on the floor for Rage at the Philly Spectrum in 1999. Two or three songs in (People of the Sun), I took an elbow to the side of the head that still to this day is the hardest hit I ever took in any circumstance. I was concussed for days.

    Rage back in 1996 at rose land, nyc was one of the most insane shows I have ever been too.  I was up near the rail waiting for the show to start, all was quiet.   Zach comes out “hi we are Rage Against the Machine and we are from Los Angeles, California.” To starts up o. Guitar and chaos ensues.  Before long my lip was split open, nose bleeding and countless boots and elbows cracked against my head.  Awesome time 
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    After the show started it sound like horrible time, but that’s cause I’m old. In 96, your right, I would have loved it. Rage is unreal. Powerful. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    Assuming these shows go off as planned, I got a feeling they will be nuts!  So much crazy bs to rage about today!

    I'm thinking Boston Calling waits a while, they have a little bit of time as the festival is still over 2 months away. Probably won't be a decision on that till April some time I'd guess.

    I'm glad I didn't pay for the $650 "charity" tickets then. Not that I would have anyway.

    Saw that too. Our dollar in Canada sucks so bad right now I bet when I get a refund I make a buck or two. I will be looking for a summer show now if they still go on for sure.

    Boston Calling finally enables folks to request a refund 3 weeks after pulling the plug.
    Then says refunds will be processed "in as little as 30 days" from April 28.
    So earliest we get our money back is May 28.
    Terrible business practice.

    Thanks for this as I may have missed it since I did not get an email today on this and it did not pop up on my Facebook feed as well. Did you get an email?

    I agree what a shitty way to roll it out after waiting so long and only allowing 7 days for you to decide with no headliners to go off of.

    I can't wait for them to offer refunds for the MSG show.  Bitter about that since I paid the stupid escalating price for half ass tickets when there was only one show.  Then they flooded the market with all something like four additional shows and now I could get much better seat on StubHub for half of the price of what I got hosed for buying it from TM right away when they put on sale for the first show.
    F them and their system
    Rage became the machine - still love that first album and always will.
    Give me my money back!

    Wish they would change the dates for MSG so I could dump the tickets they raped me on.

    Huh.  Ticketmaster hasn't updated yet.  Still pissed that I paid their ridiculous hype fees and now they have much better tickets at half the price due to adding 72 shows at MSG, lol.

    Minneapolis rescheduled for July 2, 2021.  I’m going to forget that I even have a ticket for this by then.

    I’m now sitting on almost $1,000 in concert tickets for shows that may, or may not even happen. I get why they are not cancelling things, but it’s getting a bit ridiculous at this point.
