    Cuda, just messing with you bro! I think it's awesome you were there. I've only met one person that attended all three days and sadly he's no longer among the living. And I do agree that Priest and Scorps stole the show that day. It really was a concert for the ages, even if VH was a drunken mess. Woz gave them $1.5 million for pure debauchery so it was all good. Hide your sheep indeed!

    Scorps stole the show at MOR. Never heard such a tight band that sounded just like the record. Some don't like that. They appreciate extended jams. Not staying faithful to the albums solos, etc.

    Not me. Scorps sounded great, and it was loud. They even got the stadium doing the wave. Metallica and Scorps. Btw I remember Kingdom Come receiving so much flak. There's banners ripping into them. Zep clones. How come Jason Bonham never got flak? Wait For You was soooo blatant even more so. Even then, I was like c'mon. Get It On is a bad ass track. It sounded good in a giant stadium. Always loved it.

    Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny and Justin Timberlake are struggling to sell concert tickets: Here’s why

    Lauren Elkies Schram



    Jennifer Lopez can’t sell concert tickets.

    Nor can artists like Bad Bunny, The Black Keys, Justin Timberlake and Pink, according to reports.

    Even Coachella was reportedly more lackluster than in previous years.

    Yet, Taylor Swift is holding the most profitable concert tour in music history.

    And Beyoncé kills it whenever she’s on the road.

    While not all artists’ issues are the same, there do seem to be some universal themes impacting the music business.

    There are a lot of concerts going on in a post-pandemic world, ticket prices are climbing and it’s not easy to obtain tickets.

    The average ticket price for the top 100 tours in the first quarter was a record $123.25, according to data from concert ticket tracker Pollstar, cited by Business Insider.

    Plus, artists may be overestimating their appeal by booking massive venues after delivering one hit.

    Last week, Live Nation announced J.Lo’s tour was canceled and the singer/actor was taking time to be with her family and friends.

    There was speculation the issue was the pop diva’s crumbling marriage to Ben Affleck.

    But sales of her latest album have been weak and the companion film on Amazon Prime Video got panned. J.Lo’s planned Las Vegas residency is also in jeopardy.

    Rock duo The Black Keys also scrapped a planned arena tour, while fans flagged that some shows for Troye Sivan, Charli XCX and Wallows appear to be undersold, according to reports.

    Reggaeton star Bad Bunny reportedly canceled his Minneapolis show due to poor sales, though a source close to the tour told The Post he canceled one date and that was only because of “extenuating circumstances.”

    There have been murmurs that headliners Justin Timberlake and Pink also have been slow to sell tickets, BI reported.


    Live Nation, the owner of Ticket Master, clapped back, with a spokeswoman telling The Post Timberlake and Pink “are doing extremely well.”

    She also emailed, “Charli XCX and Troye Sivan’s SWEAT tour has multiple sold out dates and is over 70% sold across the board with 4 months left until it kicks off in September,” and the Wallows tour “is selling well.”

    Live Nation said it has sold 100 million tickets so far this year, up from the same point last year. In addition, the company said, “Every year some events naturally fall off for various reasons, and in 2024 across all venue types we’ve seen a 4% cancellation rate — which is flat to last year.”

    I get JLo and The Black Keys, but Timberlake, and Pink are a little surprising.

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I'm glad most are struggling to sell tickets the prices are insane. Swifts gigs are more than music it's an experience. I never complained about 7 dollar a seat and album prices in the mid 1970s. I'm so glad I grew up in a great era for rock and electric jazz and it was all affordable to see and buy recordings. Beer and weed was cheap also.

    It was mentioned in another thread the Black Keys were in a similar bind. All I can say is what a fuckin' burn!

    I just read not too long ago that Timberlake was adding shows to his tour due to demand.

    I'm way out of touch. I haven't heard anything from Justin or Pink since maybe both of their second albums, which I have each of. Both used to put out some cools shit, but these days are off my radar completely.

    I'm sure Pink is doing just fine with her "stadium tour." If sales are down, maybe it's because she just came around not too long ago (my wife went and saw her--and she does put on a great show). And, perhaps that coupled with such a large venue ($$) is keeping some people away.
    When she plays arena she's doing multiple nights in the same city.

    I think that article is mostly about J-Lo.

    It seems everyone is having ticket woes, except for Taylor Swift. She's so popular even Trump would like her to be his VP.
