Fuck LiveNation

The Damned are playing May 14th at Irving Plaza, tickets are $29 (already totally ridiculous) and the LiveNation advance ticket fee is $12. I LOVE The Damned but there's no way I'm paying $41 to see a fat old Dave Vanian...

Not to mention Captain Sensible tried to pursue an atrocious techno/rap career a few years ago. Isnt that the same company that made headlines recently for pissing off Bruce Springsteen, because of the same shitty fees?

The boss was beefing with Ticketmaster, but also spoke out because Ticketmaster and LiveNation might merge, making one giant monopoly of bullshit.

Yeah... I don't even say I love them, i say I love a record by them. Listening to it at home for free would make me much happier.

Their first 3 records are dope, plus there are a few good songs off the later albums.

i only like the 1st one... and i don't even like the 'new rose' EP, it doesn't sound as cool live for some reason. So, yeah, I wouldn't pay anything at all to ever see this band live. Have you noticed everytime you try to buy 'Damned, Damned, Damned' on Ebay, they only sell it as a package w/ at least 3 other records by them. I think it's because they know they will sell the 1st one and get stuck w/ the others...

Check out Naz Nomad and The Nightmares-Give Daddy The Knife Cindy. It's all of The Damned doing 60's garage covers, under a different name.
