Yeah, this tour has had some dreadful openers. Kings Of Leon had no stage presence and a lead vocalist who clearly takes cues from a demented pig.

Whatever happened to U2 having good openers like The Alarm?

Exactly. Who'd have thought I'd be *fondly* remembering Rage Against The Machine opening for PopMart! ... ;) I wasn't into them at the time, but suddenly I appreciate them a whole lot more, especially after Kings of Leon... blech.

Understatement of the year, you really hit the nail on the head, I couldn't have said it any better myself. . .

They still haven't announced the suckfest opener for my show, November 1st in L.A. . . . As usual, I am prepared for the worst. Whatever happened to the Scissor Sisters!?

Oh well, more time to peruse the merchandise tables, right?

--D.

Great icon, BTW.

You have Keane... come on that band is great!
But I did love the fact we had the Kaiser Chiefs and the Killers at oen night and snowpatrol and the music at the other night.

Well at least it isn't imperia or one of the other bands that traumatised me for life after their opening acts.

I think what you mean is "The openers for North America weren't that great compared to Europe.". Bring Snow Patrol over to the US for the final leg of the tour.

Heh. I always equated the Kings Of Leon singer to the sound of a dying squirrel.

Keane is cool though...they're like Coldplay but less boring.

Dashboard Confessional was pretty grating though. After like 3 songs you just want to strangle the whiny lead singer and yell "dude, I'm sorry, but fucking get over her already and go out with somebody else."

i swear to god, on the sept. 17th show in TO, dashboard confessional hit this one note and held it for like 10 seconds and it felt like he was piercing my brain with his screech.

I don't enjoy all the groups from this year's tour, but I'd say they're at least 1000x better than Smashmouth. Yuck.

Kings of Leon had to be the worst thing ever. I was at the concert with my boyfriend, cousin and good friend. The four of us were sitting there screaming GET BONO ON GET BONO On. During Kings of Leon we went around and got snacks, went to the bathroom and gor merchandise from the tour. Talk about a waste of money and time. Then we got back to our seats and once Bono and the rest of the guys came on it was over from there. We were in heaven. It was worth the wait.

Smashmouth opened for Popmart?!
No way!
The whole lot of them grew up a few blocks from me. Almost everyone in my neighborhood has a story about them like "The lead singer taught me how to skateboard" or "My uncle was engaged to the bassists sister" kind of thing.
If only I had known. I ouwld have drilled them for info the last time they were here.
