[19:28:10] <nick> how is cmn32480
[19:28:23] <cmn32480> tired as hell
[19:28:27] <cmn32480> how is nick?
[19:29:56] <nick> can't complain, been a busy week with work projects and i had to take a trip to the immigration office
[19:30:19] <nick> my biggest gripe is last night i was cold... it got down to 40F.
[19:31:31] <nick> got rather used to the 60-80F, 40 felt so damn cold i had to close the bedroom windows and put on more clothes to sleep
[19:31:53] <nick> guess buying a blanket would be a good move
[19:33:05] <cmn32480> prolly a good choice
[19:36:27] <nick> was it yesterday you said you were at a metallica show?
[19:36:42] <cmn32480> yes
[19:39:17] <nick> how did that go
[19:40:12] <cmn32480> it was excellent
[19:41:43] <cmn32480> it was the first stop on the tour... they were pumped to get the tour underway
[19:41:55] <nick> glad to hear it... never been a fan myself, but i can still appreciate it
[19:42:23] <nick> usually a good deal to see one of the first shows, or one of the last
[19:42:27] <nick> depends how long the tour is
[19:42:51] <cmn32480> Not sure how long it is... but I think 30+ shows
[19:44:44] <nick> its a long one, but pretty leisurely
[19:44:49] <nick> just on their website now
[19:45:36] <nick> they're on the road until this time next year, but they've got a couple months off over xmas-new year
[19:45:59] <nick> that includes international shows
[19:47:06] <nick> they're definitely not doing the hard road schedule of 6-10 days of shows in a row before one or two days off
[19:50:29] <cmn32480> they are old... can't do that kind of schedule
[19:50:38] <cmn32480> sorry.. am otp w/ one of our account reps
[19:52:00] <nick> don't think it's because they're old, i think it's because they're Metallica... they don't have to, better to do less dates and keep people hungry, sell tickets for a higher price
[19:52:09] <nick> than cram in a bunch of shows in every possible city
[19:52:13] <cmn32480> good point
[19:52:33] <nick> long long did they play for?
[19:53:23] <cmn32480> 2 1/2 hours
[19:53:32] <cmn32480> they were on fire\
[19:53:40] <nick> thats very good
[19:53:46] <nick> i'm impressed
[19:55:03] <cmn32480> we were too
[19:55:30] <cmn32480> then they all hung around on stage shaking hands with the folks on the floor and having a good old time
[19:55:45] <cmn32480> probably about another 20 minutes after tehy finished playing
[19:57:18] <nick> always appreciate a nice meet n greet
[19:57:59] <nick> still not a fan, but i'll be less derisive of them in the future
[19:59:47] <cmn32480> you could see it in their faces adn they way they played that they wanted to be out there performing
[19:59:56] <cmn32480> and they put on a good show.
[20:05:57] <nick> glad you got to enjoy it
[20:06:17] <nick> i'm having a craving for some live music
[20:06:22] <nick> not much of a scene down here
[20:07:04] <nick> on songkick there's a whole 11 shows listed between now and november
[20:13:16] <cmn32480> yeah,,,, my concert budget is busted for the foreseeable future
[20:13:38] <cmn32480> I took my middle son to see his favorite Youtuber last month adn that was more than going to see Metallica
[20:16:16] <nick> wtf
[20:16:25] <nick> how is that possible
[20:16:51] <cmn32480> I have no idea...
[20:18:54] <nick> ticket prices are not what they used to be
[20:19:07] <cmn32480> no... they are expensive as hell\
[20:19:10] <cmn32480> for EVERYTHING
[20:19:28] <nick> smaller artists are not so bad, but that actually depends more on the venue
[20:19:50] <nick> but like 15 years ago i'd go to a small show for £12 and a bigger show for £25
[20:20:04] <nick> but now it's more like £15-£150
[20:20:16] <nick> not that i'd ever go to a show where a ticket was that kind of price
[20:30:11] <nick> charon, nice reply to the jmorris comment
[20:47:17] <takyon> bleh
[20:47:40] <takyon> " I took my middle son to see his favorite Youtuber last month adn that was more than going to see Metallica"
[20:47:45] <takyon> was it Tana Mongeau?
[20:59:06] <nick> i subscribe to a few youtube channels, but i cant say there's any i'd like to see in a live performance, even the musical ones
[21:13:43] <takyon> we'll see
[21:13:47] <takyon> who was it cmn32480?
