Thread: Prince was planned from day one!

  1. #1

    Default Prince was planned from day one!

    to the people complaining about the late announcment:

    last year the tickets sold out too fast...there was no time for true festival fans to get tickets for coach, instead, rage against the machine fans sold out the fest...i had many friends that could give 2 shits about rage that couldnt get tickets...people there knew none of the smaller acts (who is LCD soundsystem?), they only knew rage and RHCP...this year they could have sold out in minutes with prince on the lineup from day one, but then the festival would be all prince fans...they gave everyone that loves the festival for what it is to get tickets, then they announced prince to seal the deal...a treat for the festival lovers and a financial treat for GV

    plus, comeon, the message board is purple!

    but other than that, I see what you're saying and hope that it is correct, but that is a very sincere thing for GV to do for its loyal fans.

    they didnt give much time on single day tickets though. I remember PT saying how they gave a whole day and a half like that is any decent amount of time for average ticket buyers. 99% of my friends have no clue about the urgency of buying tickets.

    either way tickets will go fast now.

    I dont think Prince could have sold old the show nearly as fast as Rage did last year. Yes he has many loyal fans, but he has played recently and the Rage deal was a reunion after years of silence from the band. We have yet to see if this announcement can sellout the fest.

    I agree. The only thing that coulda sold out a single day as quick as Rage last year is if they added U2 (and let's pray that never happens). Not because I don't like U2, but it would be a bunch of U2 fans not giving a shit about any of the other acts.

    Madonna fans and Tool fans made Sunday sell out in '06. When I was flying into LAX from Minneapolis to go to the fest that year, the main contingent of travellers (at least on that flight, and there were a lot because it was a discount airliner) were Tool fans.

    Rage has sold around 24 million records worldwide whereas Prince has sold over 100 million. I think he's a bigger deal than Rage

    Prince is way bigger than Rage. He also just kept touring rather than simply getting back together just to make some money.
