Outgrowing the Fans

You gotta love summer. First off, you don't have to go to school. Then there is all the fun things you get to do like, go on vacation, go to the beach, hang out with your friends and go to concerts. The summertime is packed full of tours by your fave bands. But lately it seems unless you live in or near a huge town with a gigantic venue you're out of luck. The bigger your fave group or singer gets, the bigger the tour gets. Musicians have started out-growing stadiums which leaves a lot of fans concertless.

My fave band is *NSYNC. I love 'em. I was lucky enough to score really great seats to the No Strings Attached Tour last summer. It was a huge, kick-butt show. Well, in true *NSYNC style, the guys have outdone themselves with an even bigger tour this summer. The PopOdysessy Tour kicked off in May and will run until the end of August. Thing is, it's a stadium tour and it's got the biggest stage in touring history. So unless you're near a city with a stadium - and a big one at that - you aren't gonna get to see *NSYNC. Last summer Britney Spears had to cancel a sold-out show in Denver, Colorado because her stage was too big for the stadium. Also during last year's Oops... Tour Brit's LA concert, planned to be at the Hollywood Bowl, was moved at the last minute to the Great Western Forum because of size as well.

I wish all my fave artists success but I don't see why that success has to cost the fans a chance to see them - and it really does. All those Denver fans who bought tickets to see Brit must of been really disappointed. I know I am totally bummed that my big city isn't big enough for *NSYNC this summer. It's not like fans care if *NSYNC's stage is so big it needs 90 trucks to carry it. We don't care if they have a billion fireworks going off or if they have conveyor belts sliding them all over the stage. Sure it's totally cool but if I had the choice of seeing them without all the extras or not seeing them at all, I'd settle for the simple show.

Also, some of these venues are ridiculously large. If you get stuck with nosebleeds seats then you can only see the performers on the video screen and you might as well save your money and watch them on TV instead. All we, the fans, really care about is seeing and hearing them live. At really big venues you can't always see them well or hear them well. The artists need to realize is that bigger doesn't always mean better.

Got something you wanna rant about?
