Something is amiss

I would love to be a fly on the wall to see why Scott is going to open up for INXS. INXS is a has been band that at there peak never sold near the amount that CReed did. I wonder why with Scott's ego he would open up for a has been band. I don't think thats very good advertisment for his album especially when he is trying to re-establish himeslf.. Plus he doing a lot of dates with INXS not just a few. Something does not seem right and I don't think Scott would have requested this.

Re: Something is amiss

well of course now that makes a lot of sense who would,nt like to be the freaking opening act but all i can say !!!! Its Not About How Much Money Your Making Or How Or Who Is Headlining Or Not Like Bobby Dall Said poisons Orginal Bass Man Its About Going Out And Playing And Doing What You Love The Most And The Satasfaction Of Knowing This Is What I Love And Im Doing It if you perform in front of 30 people or 30 thousand its just about doing what you love...

Re: Something is amiss

this is a very weird combination, and they are doing a TON of dates... i agree with JPB, i don't think Scott had much say in this. My guess is Wind-Up is pissed that the cd didn't go diamond and they've pretty much given up on him like they've done with so many others . I think they see INXS as a band who recently had lots of public attention and would see an increase in concert attendance so sticking Scott in there as the opening act he might get more sales :S, and it might also cost them less compared to if he were headlining.

personally i think this is terrible, and would just leave after Scott left the stage haha. but i don't have to worry about that since they're not coming to Toronto!.... come on now... who comes to Canada and doesn't stop in Toronto??

yep, they played some music festival there. i wasn't able to make it either. i wasn't in Ontario at all, i was back home in Newfoundland (another province in Ca.) for the summer. i tried to talk my parents into letting me fly over to see it but that didn't go over so well :P haha.

Re: Something is amiss

I don't think it's such a good idea for Stapp at all, I think wind-up is not doing a good job at giving him what he really needs, and that's his OWN tour. The thing I'm must worried about is, how is INXS fan base going to react to Stapp? And he shouldn't be there opening up, he should be doing his on tour with someone opening up for him. He has like a half an hour to an hour on stage, then no more Stapp. That's gonna suck for anyone there to see Stapp, especially if they came along way to see him. And the tickets are expensive. I really don't think there's gonna be to big of a Stapp fan base there. But that's just my opinion.

Re: Something is amiss

i find it odd as well. was the first leg of his tour that unsuccessful in ticket sales? what has inxs done lately? stapp doesn't have to do anything he doesn't want to do. he has more money than he'll ever need. maybe this is what he needs, a little dose of humility. i plan to be there to see him again on jun. 28 here in houston.

Re: Something is amiss

Actually...if you look right now, the "new" INXS is kicking a@@. They are selling out on many shows. As soon as I saw Scott was opening for them, I went in to get tickets, and because they announced their sales before announcing Scott, they were almost sold out, and the only tickets left were in the nose-bleeds. Plus, the tickets are really high!!!
My friend said, think about it, Scott's gig will be cut shorter than his last round because he will be the opening act
I would love to see INXS too, but not for $65! I would pay that much to see Scott or AB, if I could get closer!
But, INXS is very hot right now guys, so it could mean great things for the man Scottie! But the amount of dates scheduled scares me a bit for him!!
And I really, really wish he'd do SUMMERFEST IN MILWAUKEE!!!! HELP ME ON THIS ONE STEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Something is amiss

^^^They are pretty popular and this is a great way for him to develop new fans. How many people left the Stapp shows and liked Breaking Point, alot. I was one. So this is a way for him to grow.

Re: Something is amiss

well he'll definitely get exposure from this, but i really don't think the INXS fanbase will react very well to Scott Stapp... I think a lot of us here are just so loyal and follow him blindly. Not to Scott bash or anything, but the man really doesn't have much of a voice left, and when you're a solo artist and all you've got is a worn out voice.... well...

i know i still love his music, and i have respect for him. But i'm not naive, i know it's just a blind following, but i'm ok with that.

He'll get exposure on this, and probably make a bit of money, but don't expect many new fans.
