    How the fuck is Avenged Sevenfold gonna fill the TD Garden?!

    • wyldweasil

      I dunno, I’m leaving after Deftones and ghost, I’ll let you know how the exits and traffic are.

      • TheBDanAbstract

        You’d be missing one of the better live acts in music these days.

      • MARIACHI EL willX

        @ TheBDanAbstract
        I hope your kidding

    • Tom

      no kidding. i figured agganis or tsongas. i dont know if deftones and ghost are worth going to the garden for.

  • Dax

    Damn – arena! Well, I hope the exposure is good for Deftones. Those guys deserve it.

    • asull24

      What would be good for the Deft-ones, would be making expose able music.

      • MyDarkPassenger

        I want to comment on how retarded that comment above is, but I don’t even know how. Well done sir, I’m stupefied.

      • jrr

        Are you trying to make a pun about how nimble the Deftones are? o_O

      • BlueBalls

        In an attempt to criticize, he called them “the skillful ones” without realizing it.

  • adamonfire

    Just as I expected… I’ve had nothing but good times at JLA, so I’m looking forward to it. One thing I certainly miss about living in the metro Houston area is how long Mitchell Pavilion is open with comfortable weather.

    • BlueBalls

      The best damn arena in the world! I’ve never seen a show there but I’d be down to stand on the same floor as my red and white heroes for a Deftones show.

      • kturl69

        I saw Metallica & Machine Head @ The Joe back in 2009. One hell of a show. I was kicked out for crowd surfing on Metallica’s opening song. I was so disappointed until I realized I could just walk in a different entrance. So I only missed 2 or 3 songs. Looking forward to this one!

      • adamonfire

        I saw The Black Keys and then Muse there, had pretty damn good views each time. The majority of A7X fans are still kids so it should be really easy to see and move up in the crowd.

        I was hoping to go to that Metallica / MH tour in Dallas but I had a final that night, wasn’t able to catch Metallica until Orion this year and Machine Head on Mayhem 2 years ago.

      • adamonfire

        Oh, and at Skynyrd/Bad Company last night a guy sat in front of us that had the Lions logo (new version) tattooed on each side of his head as though it were a helmet, and he was wearing a Kevin Smith jersey. Fan of the century.

  • PhantomOfTheNovel

    They are stupid if they think they are gonna fill up the Phillips Area. Such an odd lackluster tour. A7X and Ghost, please.

    Can they please just do another Alice in Chains, Mastodon and Deftones tour again?

    • Dax

      I flew up from FL to see that tour in Chicago. It was stellar!


    I still say worst Deftones tour mates ever. wtf?

    • Tom

      godsmack / deftones / puddle of mudd

      • rojasdivision

        I saw this tour date in San Antonio. Puddle of Mudd was HORRIBLE. We stayed for about 3 Godsmack songs. They weren’t great but they weren’t the worst band I’ve seen either.

      • Tom

        puddle of mudd is bad enough to automatically make that the worst tour deftones have taken part in. pretty indifferent to godsmack and avenged actually.

        if this tour was doing small arenas it would be no question worth going just for deftones and ghost, but im not sure if it can justify a place the size of the garden, or the prices.

        maybe if this tour actually bombs and stubhub sellers unload tickets for close to nothing.

      • MARIACHI EL willX

        dammit! I forgot all about deftones, godsmack, puddle of mudd. good memory. that was worse.

      • sangresabia

        Amen! Worst Deftones-show crowd ever.

  • rojasdivision

    I love Deftones (10x show vet) but I’m passing on this. Not that Avenged Sevenfold doesn’t put on a solid show (they do) but I’d rather see them in a smaller venue than in an arena setting. Tried that once before (Reunion Arena 2006) and the show was meh.

    • adamonfire

      In the past year I’ve seen them in a amphitheater, smaller club, and large festival and the performance was pretty consistent at all locations

      • MyDarkPassenger

        You spend a lot of time watching people make music.

    • rojasdivision

      Perhaps I’m just spoiled from having been at their Diamond Eyes CD release show Trees in Dallas (600+ capacity) which is one of my top shows of any band I’ve seen. The 3 shows I’ve seen since have been great but nothing compared to that one.

    • THERileyBrewer

      Think I’m staying away from this too. Can Avenged Sevenfold really fill AAC?! Regardless… I’d leave after Deftones anyway.

  • EyeOfEveryScorn

    Unless it’s a festival the Deftones pretty much should never play below anybody.

    • MyDarkPassenger

      Agreed. It feels disrespectful for those young punks in Avenged (though they’re getting pretty old) to take top billing. Then again, it’s a stupid ass idea for them to tour together at all.

  • planetdeath

    glad i dont have to stay for the entire show!

  • pinkmaggit

    I really want a Deftones/Dredg/Glassjaw tour.

    • MARIACHI EL willX

      one million times YES

  • massdeath

    Agreed with the bring back the AIC/Deftones/Mastodon show. I saw that in the garden and that was killer!

    What in the world are Deftones doing touring with A7X? The Tones are should be so beyond that by now. The only advantage I could see is that A7X has some younger fans who may not have heard Deftones and that could bring in some more youth to the world of Deftones; who IMHO still have a LOT to offer the rock world.

    As for Ghost the whole “Satan” gimmick is just so stupid. It’s not because I’m afraid of supernatural nonsense or powers; but because to me it’s just cheesy. It’s like rather than writing lyrics that mean something to you or the world, they are just taking the “shock” way out. Lame.

    • Tom

      deftones and avenged are labelmates.

      the advantage is avenged is far more popular, putting them in front of a lot of new ears period, not just younger ones.

  • massdeath

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again my dream tour would a triple headliner bill: Alice in Chains, Depeche Mode, and Deftones. Perhaps DM is so popular around these parts but they’d be a perfect musical connection to the other two bands IMHO.
