=DDD

shanti_lttl

shanti_lttl said on the 21st Oct, 2007

circa are playing shows in nov-dec, so why would they come back so early for soundwave?

i've already registered, now i've just got to put some money aside for tickets. how much do you think early bird tickets are?

jurrassitol15

jurrassitol15 said on the 21st Oct, 2007



me too me too...

nope no idea how much tickets are...they were 60-70 bucks last time...maybe a little more considering the amount of bands they are bringing?

kath_white

kath_white said on the 22nd Oct, 2007

I know the chances are slim, but I'd love to see Incubus on a side show... anybody heard any whispers?

FormOfLemur

FormOfLemur said on the 22nd Oct, 2007

evileva

evileva said on the 22nd Oct, 2007

question for y'all soundwave regulars - how likely is this to sell out? i don't know which city i'm goint to be in when this i'm curious if buy tickets to the wrong city if they'll be easy to sell on or if there'll still be tickets closer to the date.

geeewocka

geeewocka said on the 22nd Oct, 2007

not sure how long it took for Sydney last year, but it did sell out

I have a photo pass but I snatched up a ticket for cost price so that the girl could come a long....there were plenty of scalpers out front

but that line-up....offspring + incubus + killswitch - the kids won't wait long

I'd try get them asap just in case

jurrassitol15

jurrassitol15 said on the 22nd Oct, 2007

i completely agree with dan...last years took a while to sell out but it did...

but man that line up is definately going to make it sell out :)

how many earlybird tickets are for sale??

xStraightHedgex

xStraightHedgex said on the 23rd Oct, 2007

I hope Social Distortion play sideshows. The only other band I know is The Offspring, and I'm no longer 12, so I don't think they're cool anymore. I would like to see them play "Pretty Fly..." though.

dream_vs_scream

dream_vs_scream said on the 23rd Oct, 2007

If you're no longer 12 why do you have x's at the beginning and end of your username?

shanti_lttl

shanti_lttl said on the 23rd Oct, 2007

some of the most devout straight edgers i've known still wear x's. there's nothing wrong with it.
it's funny how the conversation is always steered at mocking edge or emo.

nothing166

nothing166 said on the 23rd Oct, 2007

I hope that it is announced as an over 18's gig at the very last minute.
