Re: Official Vancouver Canada 2022 Thread

Does anyone care about this show?
Lack of thread chatter suggests little interest and or attendees….

I just checked on ticketmaster, and hardly any tickets have been sold for this so far! They'd be better off to move this concert to somewhere like the Orpheum Theater.

I can only imagine they did it since they were gonna be in the area (for Seattle and Portland) and because they're not planning on going the next summer tour(s). Still doesn't make complete sense but I can't think of any other reason (unless the promoter/booker is a huge fan and willing to take a loss)

I was looking thru ticket sales just because I was curious. Does DMB legit cancel this show? How do you take the stage to maybe 1k people.

Dave tests positive for Covid on October 28, recovers on November 3, in time for Seattle.

Sales look horrendous. I go to a lot of shows, and usually Ticketmaster drops the prices to pick up sales. Looks like they aren't bothering to do that... maybe indicating it will get cancelled? There's like less than 25 percent sold and the show is a couple weeks away. WTH Vancouver!?

I even upgraded to clubs for this one lol. I hope it doesn't get cancelled. Saw them here in 2015 and a few times before - always a top show of the year. Vancouver is kinda clueless though. Other artists can be the same thing. Sell out in Seattle, Portland, half empty here.

Sadly it seems inevitable... I can't see them performing to an empty arena. If TM dropped prices by 25 percent, that would have helped.. ppl are kinda strapped here with the 3000 rent for a one bedroom lol.

Doesn't the band get a guaranteed amount, regardless of how many tickets the promoter is able to sell?

If they do not cancel, I bet they close the entire upper deck and upgrade everyone downstairs. Very intimate 2,500 person show.

Yikes.

Great idea in theory. But the complications that will cause makes me think it’s unlikely. Pretty sure each ticket holder would need to approve an “upgrade.” Some may not want lowers, for whatever reason. Etc

Re: Official Vancouver Canada 2022 Thread

knowing DMB, they'd probably play the best set they've done in seven years at this show. meets all the criteria
- weekday show
- arena
- not a big market city
- less than 1/4 of seats sold

I say the over/under on liberations is 6.5

I agree with this prediction but not the liberation O/U.
It’s also the first show of a tour and past history suggests stronger setlists on tour opening shows.

I also don’t expect there will end up being any upper level seating at the show despite the fact that some/few uppers have been sold (including to me: I saw this coming!).

What's your theory on why the sales are so abysmal at this stop?

1. Demographics. DMB largely unknown in Vancouver.
2. IMHO DMB have always had a mainly NE USA following with a hardcore group that do multiple shows each tour that skew ability to gage individual markets. Can’t figure out why there is only one east coast stop on this years Fall Tour??

Re: Official Vancouver Canada 2022 Thread

I’ve been to amphitheater shows before where the back sections are almost entirely unsold, and usually they just hand out closer tickets to the people in those sections.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they do that for this show and essentially close the upper bowl.

Yeah maybe they'll do that.. I'm sure you could opt out if for some reason you didn't want to move closer/lower and get a refund, as the vast majority would be delighted with it.

Problem though, is that the upper deck is all vacant already anyways!

Re: Official Vancouver Canada 2022 Thread

I went to a Muse concert about 10 years ago at the schottenstein center in Columbus. It was so undersold that they moved everyone who had upper level tickets to the lower 2 levels, and then they entirely curtained off the upper level. Muse had no business playing a venue that big in a city like Columbus, just like DMB have no business playing a venue that big in Vancouver. But these things happen more often than you think.

My advice is buy a cheap upper level ticket, and know that you’ll be moved to better seats knowing that you might be next to someone who paid twice as much.

Maybe comrade Trudeau should hold a rally to boost ticket sales.
