fallenangels.jpgAudiences for this summer’s Poison tour have ranged from “anemic” to “entirely absent.” Maybe the promise of a comedy routine by C.C. DeVille would help sell tickets? Or are people just refusing to pay money to see the latest incarnation of Ratt on principle? [Blabbermouth]

    Why am I not surprised that this Vains of Jenna that’s opening the tour are Swedish?

    This is so reminiscent of Spinal Tap that it’s not even funny.

    @blobby:

    Marty DiBergi: The last time Tap toured America, they were booked into 10,000-seat arenas, 15,000-seat venues, and it seems that now, on their current tour they’re being booked into 1,200-seat arenas, 1,500-seat arenas, and uh…I was just wondering, does this mean the popularity of the group is waning?

    Ian Faith: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no…no, no, not at all. I — I just think that…their appeal is becoming more selective.

    Well, I’ll have a report from the field tomorrow, as I’m going to be at tonight’s show. Which is on Long Island. And if Poison can’t do well there…

    Maybe it’s because it was $45 to see them play at a club here in Mpls…err, suburbia. I’ve seen Poison live plenty of times, but that was ridiculously expensive.

    @maura: What will you wear? Is a photo of you at the concert too much to hope for? (By the way, I found that AT&T Wireless commercial featuring Mates of State on YouTube you said you would snark.)

    Maybe it’s because Poison is a shitty washed up band?

    Don’t get me wrong, I used love Posion… when I was in 5th grade.
    Now? Not so much.
