You get tours like this, or Bring Me The Horizon/Parkway Drive/Architects/Deez Nuts, and you lump all of that asinine shit together in one place for people to eat up.
Then you let yours like Thrice / La Dispute / Moving Mountains / O'Brother to keep the rest of us happy.
It works out for everyone, like you said.
Yup. I haven't seen a tour with two complete shit bands and two great bands in a while. They've been doing pretty good at working with each other to bring in the right crowds and get certain groups really excited for certain shows. Bands are fitting in with each other and things are looking up.
