I'll try to hit up the Best Buy Theater show. Love that venue!

Solid ass lineup and a good cause. I need to get myself to the Starland Ballroom for this.

There are no Starland events, as those have been cancelled due to Sandy. All Starland tickets are honored for the arena show in Toms River.

You love them? The same venue that ripped off a ton of 12 year old kids who bought tickets to the ptv show a few days after the hurricane when no transportation was running hardly at all? Don't care about the show but when almost every other venue in the city cancels or moves their shows for a major sold out show like this it's just petty. The band didn't even have any shows for a few days either... gross

I only went there once for Staind last year and the venue was awesome. The sound is great, the lights were awesome and it's cleaner than most NYC venues (its one of the newer venues. Major remodeling from Nokia Theater) Sucks that they fucked over ptv fans. I like the venue, not AEG Live

I agree with you there, I was very disappointed I wonder if Nokia would have let that happen when they owned it smh

Sadly can't make either show, even though I would love to.

You do know it's the bands choice to play the show, right?

It doesn't matter the venue should have decided not to have it, everyone says different things and whether it was the band or the venue. The only real truth is it shouldn't have happened at all. I'm sure if the band didn't play it they'd lose money or there was a scheduling issue, either way a bunch of other venues that bands could have played cancelled/postponed their shows.
