Smile Limp Bizcuit World Tour with special guest- Iced Earth

i was reading an interview with Jon Schaffer in a magazine, and he has a brilliant idea.

When they go on tour, it cost them lots of money to open for a big band like when they opened for Megadeth. Jon figures, why not get more for the money? He says that for the next IE tour, he would like to try and open for Limp Bizcuit, Korn etc.

He wants to try and steal the audience.......

That is an amzing idea. Think about it, it cost lots of money anyway, so why not take the humiliation of opening for a much less talented band, and then blow the audience away? That could really expand the IE audience.

Opening acts are all about money, if I had about $100,000, I could probably outbid every other band and get a spot for my band in Ozzfest, cuz thats all it takes to play there. I read that a band has to pay about an average of $75,000 for an Ozzfest spot.

This is a really great idea for IE, I would love to see this trend in the future, it can really expand the metal audience. Think about it..........

Linkin Park and Soilwork

Korn and Dimmu Borgir

Hahahahahaha now you sure could come up with some mismatched bands...

Darkane and Limp Bizkit stands out in my mind somehow. Maybe 28 Days and Soiletn Green... you'd get all these people going to gigs, and then quitting after the opening act. Now THAT would be funny.

one little problem with that...if I was Iced Earth (which I'm not and I wouldn't want to be because I hate them) why the fuck would I WANT to take Limp Bizkit fans? Trendy Mallcore Assclowns aren't who I'd like to be trying to latch on to my music.

DarkestHour, you'd do it because you want money. Everybody does, that's why they call it "money."

This seems to me to be about live music. Live music has its own corner of the site. We call it "Tours and Concerts." Look for this thread there, coming soon.

Trendy Mallcore Assclowns can buy cds though. They can also be coverted. If I was in IE's position I would jump on the chance to tour with disturbed, POD, or Korn. I'd tour with them rather than some real metal bands.

it's not all about money, we as a band just get in shows with bigger bands everytime cuz where' beeeing asked by those bands or either the organisation.

for bigger bands, ofcourse money IS an issue, but some bands just know each other and get into each others programs, taproot got into deftones opening show because they know each other etc.


when it comes to really big shows like Ozzfest, local talented bands are put in a poll and the winners are the 3 that play on Ozzfest (thats how it works here)
the real big bands are mostly polled on internet or either voted for in a way, it's not only about money (except for kittie, they had to pay to get on ozzfest, haha)

it would be better to open for crappier bands that have a few similarities with you. Like Meshuggah before Slipknot or something.

I stand by what I said, and it's not "all about the money" to some people in this world. Granted many bands out there do this for a living and have a family to pay for, but I have a lot more respect for people who have day jobs and still play in bands that tour. D.I.Y. before management greed is how I see it. And yes, it is still a stupid idea and I still say Iced Earth is a boring band with stupid touring ideas.

probally the worst idea i have ever heard. Dimmu and Korn? Come on... i dont think Dimmu has the intention of showing everyone there better. Ahhh they might as well go on trl, its like your trying to expose great.

dimmu and korn was a match I made up, but IE is serious about opening for "the nu-metal fags" as he refered to them

i think nu metal fans can easily get into a band like IE. IE writes catchy music so it would be easier to get nu metal fans then if Cattle Decapitation or Gorguts tried this

since iced earth writes catchy music though, with proper exposure, there is no reason why a song like "watching over me" couldn't be as big as "trust" or "until it sleeps"

catchy if you like listening to retro 80's music that's been done to death for the past 20 years

I would never pay money to play anywhere, I only EARN money with music actually, free drinks and food included


it can happen that poppy bands have managers that will pay for the band to get a spot at a big festival to promote the band in every way they can.
but that's just commercialism at it best.
