Kings Of Leon move to‘intimate venues’

Late scheduling changes have been made by to the King of Leon’s March tour, to give punters in Brisbane and Adelaide “the opportunity to experience the Kings Of Leon live in environments similar in intimacy to those in Sydney and Melbourne”.

The venue and scheduling changes mean that:
– The Brisbane performance has moved from Sunday 6th March at QSAC Stadium to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Tuesday 8 March;
– The Adelaide Oval’s Sunday 13 March performance will now take place at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre with no change to the date, and;
– The Sydney ACER Arena performance on Tuesday 8 March has been rescheduled to Friday 11 March.

Ticketek will contact patrons in Adelaide and Brisbane with details regarding ticket exchange, while the tickets for the rescheduled Sydney show remain valid. Punters unable to attend the rescheduled dates can seek a refund prior to Friday 4th February at their original point of purchase.

Tuesday 8th March – Brisbane Entertainment Centre (new venue and rescheduled date)

Ah yes, nothing beats the intimacy of Acer Arena. It feels like the band is playing exclusively to me as I watch them through my binoculars.

I don't mind the Entertainment Centre, but fucks sakes, moving from a Sunday to Tuesday? Really?

Lemme guess, this means they're going to massive venues, bringing groupies back to the tour bus and playing the 'show' there?

i thought it was a bit odd of them to book qsac in brisbane, given the size of bands that the venue sees are the likes of u2, pearl jam and acdc. the place is huge. i don't i doubt they could pull off a show there, but... hmmm...

theyll probably change the perth venue later when they realise its an open roof. cant risk any more bird poo attacks.

Translates to "We're not as big as we thought we were, and poor ticket sales have dictated that we must downsize."

Are you honestly that naive in that you truly believe the band themselves had any say in where they were playing?

Acer Arena is about as intimate as a Mardi Gras parade

To be fair it was a fucking stupid move to put them at a football stadium in Adelaide. Hardly anything sells THAT well in Adelaide, Metallica's last Adelaide shows sold around half of what would have filled Adelaide Oval, ACDC only played one show there and I don't think they ended up fully selling it out. Any idiot knows KoL are definitely not on the same level or even close to the same level as any of them, I don't think most mainstream fans even know they have a fifth album?

@morningafterboy: was that to me?

So much for selling out...

Aren't those venues being used for sports anyway?
