Decided to delete an old blog started almost 8 years ago. Instead of deleting all posts, I will post many that were needed at different points of my life. Enjoy!
Part Deux Originally post November 6, 2010
Just want to address a few points I failed to in part one. I am not against a joint tour, I am against a joint tour when the artists fail to mesh and it isn't about the music anymore. I realize my statement about the NKOTB or BSB tour success was riddled with my emotions.
Conditionally, I still believe people are missing my point. I understand how the music industry works, and quite frankly, it is a fucked up business. Then again, it is driven by us as consumers, and the media exposure of artists. With that said, I guess I allowed myself to believe the success concerning NKOTB this time was based on the family we have become as fans and the deep connection we have with all 5 members of the band. Like I stated in part one, I am not attacking NKOTB, BSB, and other fans, I am attacking the motives behind ruining what we had going. I along with YOU, should realize my opinion won't change the inevitability of this tour. I would just appreciate if people would not continue to have STARS in their eyes.
On another note, I also don't appreciate the disrespect and drama among fans. The hate and animosity that has occurred is bullshit. Of course, I am sure a lot of it comes from jealousy and envy. However, there is a method to the madness. When the reunion theory is driven by money, then people lose sight of what is in important. For example, geographical logistics have allowed demand to be amazing on the in the Midwest, South, Eastern US , and Eastern Canada; which is probably why more events have been occurring in those areas since the initial reunion tour. Along those lines, everybody's financial stability has varied, making traveling and attendance waver. Some people can afford to go many shows, some can barely afford one, some still have yet to see one. So in addressing attendance declining over the last 2 years, or this past Summer, we have to remember the times in which we are living. The bragging from those fans who have been to countless shows, and have now become a close contact with members of NKOTB need to stop. It makes you look desperate for attention, and it should not be about that.
There I go with my opinions again. Goodbye for now!
