I love how the wizard came in and cleaned up the spam after this post

and I just got my reminder card from Live Nation for season ticket packages
and there's still only 4 dates listed at Alpine this summer
with plenty of open time to book another couple o' shows
including my birthday weekend

They are giving a sweeter deal to the 2nd stage bands.  Ozzfest charges them 75k to go on that tour.  Mayhemfest doesn't charge them, but actually PAYS them.

any idea how much?  do they cover their travel expenses and pay per diems?  or insurance?

I know I've ranted about this before but that $75K is an investment to keep out the boogers.  it's like a security deposit on your apartment except you get it back from the fans.  it insures that you are not booking a bunch of idiots who aren't ready for the big time.  and if they come off that tour turning on new fans who buy their shit and come back for more they have done their job.

back when I helped my friends' bands get gigs years ago, to insure that the bar wasn't going to be empty for a unknown new band, the booking agent made us buy $500 worth of tickets and do whatever we wanted to do to get our asshole friends to show up.  we could give them away (we used to run contests with our local metal station), sell them for whatever we could get for them and that's what we got paid.  after we packed the place
they got paid very nicely after that with regular gigs.

if you didn't learn the very valuable marketing lesson from that experience, stay out of the music business.

I've always wanted to take the amtrak into Grand Central Station and run around NYC for a couple of days with no plans or hotel room or knowing anybody, jacking up my credit card at all the touristy hot-spots.  I'd probably be found lying under a bush in Central Park a week later.

has your friend even tried to get the day off?  this far into the future, it's easier to get coverage but do it early.  his boss can't be such a douche to not let him go and I'm sure there's someone else on the schedule to cover one shift.  everyone likes extra hours in the summer if they can get it.  $$$$

and that's how bosses turn into douches.  by assuming they won't help you out with this sort of dilemma
they get pissed at you for treating them like a douche in the first place.  but if that doesn't work, you're screwed

do not cut your travel time short.  give yourself at least an hour lead time to get lost/pulled over/tailgate

in the past, Lollapalooza has strictly enforced its EXCULSIVITY CLAUSE
restricting bands from scheduling shows near the date and area of the festival
(and this is a quote and link directly from a Chicago Tribune article about it from 2010)

http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.com/turn_it_up/2010/06/lollapalooza-one-of-many-festivals-with-exclusivity-clauses.html

Lollapalooza:
Unless artist or agent thereof receives express written
consent executed by a representative of C3, Artist will decline any
performance engagement from 180 days before Lollapalooza to 90 days
following Lollapalooza within a 300-mile radius of Lollapalooza. This
radius clause also includes any performances (public or private) in
Chicago the weekend of Aug 6-8, 2010. Artist will not announce ANY
Lollapalooza performance until Lollapalooza has publicized its schedule.

and, looking over the shoulder of someone on Facebook about this earlier today
the people on the Black Sabbath page are NOT HAPPY about this news

HE'S NOT FUCKING KIDDING!!!

I don't know if it's my computer or I'm so discombobulated I can't post the link
to the Chicago Tribune site with the story.  three day tix are the only ones available right now
and single day tix will be sold after they announce the individual day line ups

I so hate Lollapalooza.  this news has me all, um . . . . at a loss for words

they will be ten miles due east of me.  how can I not go to this?
and the story sez it's the only other world tour performance of the original four besides Donnington

so gnomez.  come to chicago and I'll throw you in my ocean
