I'm fucking pissed off right now. The Hostile Takeover Tour was set to come threw St. Louis at a decent venue called The Pageant. Tech hasn't played here since Fire and Ice. Its a nice, comfortable venue. I was extremely happy to hear this is where he would be at once again. BUT NOPE. I just seen that the venue has changed to a shitty hole in the wall called Pops Nightclub. This place is ratchet as fuck! And there is no way it will hold all the mainstream homos that WaterGun Kelly will bring in. Anyone else have their venue changed? I wish I could call whoever books these shows and give them a piece of my mind right now.
Ya not a fan of AZ's changes either. They listed the Flagstaff show at the Orpheum then it changed to some Ampitheater that has no upcoming events posted at all... Also they left Marquee which is cool because that place is kind of a dump. then it changed to the Venue of Scottsdale, then it changed to Celebrity Theater. Which the middle sections in front of Tech are reserved seating, apparently. I don't want seats around me when I see Tech but I also dont want to be at a shitty angle to watch. Also Prices went up like 20 buck from Marquee to Celebrity also. 50+ a show... Sounds like I am trying to go see Wayne.
As everyone has stated, Tech has played the same venue in their towns for years and years. That is called laziness on the bookers part. And the entire Strange roster hates the venue in STL. And they all want to play at the other mentioned venue, Tech himself said it is out of his control.
I would hardly call them lazy, which is a blanket statement on your part, based on what? What Tech and the guys have said about playing the venue? They may not like going to Pop's, but that doesn't mean the bookers don't know any better. They do what is necessary and feasible.
Guess what, if it really was a huge problem to them, it would have been solved by now.

No, I don't. Because Tech's booking agents are lazy as fuck. I've talked to Tech about this exact problem and he said he agrees with me 100%, so does Kaliko and Prozak. None of those guys like coming to Pops. But Pops is easier to get a booking and cheaper than the Pageant. You fucking idiot. Think before you type.
lol at giving the booking agents a piece of your mind. Go for it. You think they didn't take everything into consideration when booking this tour? You think in the 12 years SM has been around that this is their first tour?
