Fall Tour 2009 (merged)

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping for a timeline sync up. I live in San Francisco, so I'll have to have the opportunity to fly back to Canada to see a show... :S

Matt was amazing at West End before the reno c0micb0y, I'm hoping he plays there again.

I forgot the June 04 show at the Red River Ex. The Winnipeg date should be announced anytime now, but I was thinking that those of us from Winnipeg(or whoever is attending the show) should meet up either before or after the show.

Geeeez $38 shows? I sure as heck hope that's to pay for a string section, it's about time he toured with one.

$38 is standard issue when you're playing any event that's larger than a small club.

What do you consider a small club, in terms of capacity? The Phoenix Concert Theatre in TO has a capacity of 1,000, and the average cost of a show there is $15 -$25. There are a few exceptions of course - I mean, who WOULDN'T pay $35 + service charges to see Collective Soul? But yeah Massey Hall (2,800 capacity), the (ugh) 'Kool Haus' (1600), the Sound Academy (approx 2600, and even deeper *shudder*) etc are usually about $25-$40 a pop.

 

Maybe I'm just so used to seeing $5-$10 shows four nights a week lately. I'll still be going to any MG show of course, but that ain't cheap in my books. Again, a string section on tour with them would be King!

I've been to a lot of shows at the phoenix and never have I paid 15-20, I think the minimum I've paid is 25.

If you look through our concert listings in the past, you'll notice most of those shows over the last few years are $38. MG playing with a band costs him more and if you've noticed his latest tour decorations, that giant spotlight thing, he's probably trying to be as cost effective as he can lol. Ticket master also likes to take a large chunk of change out of everything.

Touring with a string section would be expensive as hell, and we would be paying far more than 38 bucks to see him play if he incorporated a string section into the live show.

Agreed. I pay a ton more money when I saw The Tea Party with the Toronto Symphony.

Do I wait for a Buffalo show, or go to these shows, during final exam week?

I hate that tickets always go on sale while I'm at work. I must strategize!

With so many shows going on sale this week, I'm hoping that Matt will release the complete list sometime in the next couple of days. (It'd certainly make my travel decision that much easier.)
