Re: [the boredoms] BOREDOMS TO TOUR ENGLAND IN SUMMER OF 2002
- I still think its lame for them to tour England first and not
America, I mean wtf. Playing 3 dates in America is not a tour! Going
to England is! They have to come here to get to England, right?
Consider yourself lucky Nimereht to have seen them so many times. I
have lived in Florida and Texas for the past 12 years and have never
had an opportunity to see them. Either its costs to much to travel to
them or they just are playing way to far away.
When they played Lolapalooza back in 199? they did not tour on that
part of Lolapalooza that came to Florida. In 1999 they only toured
the west coast and certain northern cities of the US, the closest
they came to Florida was
Washinton D.C.! I know they have toured more than that but I have no
knowledge of any other. I was never informed or aware. I tried to see
them play ATP but considering I live on about $700 a month it was not
Now that I live in Austin, Texas I seen bands from Japan that can't
possibly be as popular as Guitar Wolf or have anymore promo that they
they come to America (Austin, in this case) and play. During SXSW
week all the
Japanese bands were just playing one gig!! There is no promotion save
the fact that there are two Japanese nights that people know about.
dont tell me about bands needing to promote themselves in Japan first
before they tour America. These bands did it with just about zero
promo, and they were not worried about some war, which is beyond
our control anyway. I just want the Boredoms to tour America and stop
picky about politics. Just play for god's sake!!!! I have been
patient for 12 years!!!!!! Dont get me wrong this wont make me
being a huge fan, but I will BITCH about it!!!

label (just like boredoms) and they were supposed to play at the first las
vegas shakedown...everything was all set for them to play when two or three
weeks before the event their label FORBADE them from coming to america and
playing! in a twisted way it makes sense...why tour in a country that your
last two albums have not been released in???
who knows what the boredoms situation is? they don't OWE us anything...if
they want to come and play america thats great, but they are not doing it for
YOU, they are doing it because they (presumebly) love to play live....i've
seen them a number of times when they haven't even had anything to promote in
this country... sometimes their albums arent even released domesticly in the
same year as the japanese versions...
