Hmmm. Maybe. I'd seen other names mentioned - Royal Blood among them - but I guess its easy to draw parallels.

 

It was My Chemical Romance they sub-headlined in 2011, right?.

 

It was. Could see RB into Mars into Muse. Would love that. Could see RB also headlining the tent

So i did a bit of research and for example the capacity in Atlanta is 20k, but Depeche Mode played there in 2013 for a 9k crowd and it was "sold out", same for Tampa which was 12k.

 

If they manage to sell out these shows it proves they need a strong support or a co-headline tour instead of curtaining half arenas on their own, hopefully they realize that.

I just have a bad feeling that, without a new album or big Drones-like stage production, Muse will stick to a 90-minute greatest hits set for this tour. That's basically what the Drones tour was anyway once you stripped back all the prerecorded theatrics. On the one hand, I'm a little disappointed that they haven't scheduled any dates yet in my area but also a little relieved that I won't be tempted to buy tickets for another been-there-done-that set.

Yeah I'm really wondering if I want to spend $100+ on a ticket and drive 10 hours roundtrip for this. Maybe if I can land GA pit in the presale. Even then.. meh. I'll stay home and they'll play Dead Star though. Because it's Canada. The US shows are guaranteed to suck. :LOL:

I live about 50 miles away from you if you're still in Holt (I'm going to be in Lansing tomorrow actually). DTE or Klipsch in Indy would be ok but I'm not driving to St. Louis or Toronto for this one. I already have tickets for Green Day and U2 this summer. I can live with that.

How much are standard tickets? Should surely be less than the Drones what with the lack of production.

$99 for GA at some gigs, so about £78. Some are higher.

 

So same, roughly. Or sort of. Don't know how to check what the exchange rate was in September 2015 when the UK Drones shows went on sale, but I do know its a worse rate now. How much were the US Drones shows?

The range is $30 to 99. Which means the few pit tickets on sale Wil go for 99 and its 30 for lawn seats.

 

This presale system is fucked up too. May just get seated in the general sale.

$30 is a snip, I'd defo go for that out of the options. Doubt there'll be much you'd wanna be in the pit for anyway.

 

$99+ for pit tickets though :stunned:

The best tickets are more than the Drones tour, oddly. But you're also paying for 30STM...

Yup, still live in Holt and work in Lansing haha. I've done the Toronto drive a lot over the years and it's pretty easy. And I have a friend out that way. That's really the only reason I'm flirting with the idea. But yeah, if this was at Pine Knob/DTE I wouldn't even have to think twice about going. Oh well.

Do we think tickets will sell well for this tour?

 

I would not anticipate them selling out the general admission lawn seating in the amphitheatre type venues. I'd guess that the reserved seating will sell pretty well in most locations.

 

$125 (with fees) pit tix and/or decent seats -- and that's face value...in the middle of the summer -- ain't gonna help.

 

in any event, sales of 80%+ of capacity across all venues would keep promoters happy. i expect some substantial variance from venue to venue, though.

 

in other news, a downsized production (relative to the last tour) coupled with somewhat steep ticket prices is going to help boost profit margins for the band(s), likely putting the tour in the black.
