Defining Logic, Incubus plan 40 City Tour
their management, along with Live
Nation, think the band has more juice left to be squeezed from
concertgoers. I am stocked. Read on to why out why
With Einziger--who underwent surgery earlier this year for carpal tunnel
syndrome--good to go, the band has mapped an outing expected to eventually hit
more than 40 cities, with a July 10 launch set in Los Angeles. The tour will
run through the first week of September, after which the group will jet
overseas for a European run. The group's international dates can be found at
Why this is a shocking tour!
Incubus has played the LA market three times already this concert season, with
the date of Verizon still to happen. They played the Wiltern three
times. They played KROQ acoustic
Christmas, and they have already sold out the Greek theatre for 2
dates. When you add that up, that's about 17,000 tickets. With this
tour, and their date of Verizon, which is 16,000 tickets, that is a lot of f-ing
tickets. I'm shocked. Maybe I don't realize just how strong their
fan base is. Obviously Live Nation thinks so, and they are right more than
not. All this begs the question: What will tickets prices be?
I'd imagine they'll be $40-60 a ticket.
They put on a great show
I was lucky to get tickets to see them at the Wiltern this February, and they
are great performers, with great music, and great fans. I was in the lodge
for the event. Thank God! The GA floor was packed so tight, it was a
sea of bodies. But let me let you, the loge was rocking. In fact,
the entire upper stairs were swaying up and down as concertgoers jumped up and
down. To be honest with you, I was scared the balcony would break!
It was moving that much!
The point is, they are a great band. But 33,000 tickets is a lot to
sell. I'm very eager to see what the market plays out!
