Deftones blow live. They sound like a garage band.

How the fck is Avenged Sevenfold headlining over Deftones? This does not compute.

anonymous

^^^Because maybe A7X is 4x more bigger than Deftones. *smh*

Ghost fcking sucks. Most overhyped band of the last few years. Deftones is the only good band on this bill, but they usually suck live, especially if Chino has had a few drinks before playing

2005 me is stoked

What were those gay stage names a7x had a few years back?

It's been years since I've been able to leave a show before the headliner, I will be picking that back up on this show. I've been so used to showing up late to miss the openers, this will be a nice change of pace.

The gays saying Deftones suck live need to have their ears amputated cause they've failed you miserably. You may have gotten a bad show but other than that, you're an imbecile. Ax7 is utter garbage and the other two bands should be ashamed being associated with them, no matter how much they want to grow their fanbases. It's an atrocity that Ax7 has sold more than 2 records total and I blame Hot Topic for it. Anyone who thinks they have legitimate talent needs to be drowned.

"How the fck is Avenged Sevenfold headlining over Deftones? This does not compute."

A7X is MUCH bigger than Deftones. They're a HUGE radio rock band. It's not even close.

I agree with others that Deftones should headline. But sadly they haven't been in the radio as much as Avenged Sevenfold. I'm afraid Deftones are on the decline, along with other great metal bands.

7/15/2013 4:07:59 PM
Deftones on the decline? Based off radio hits? The last two albums are nearly perfection and I hadn't rode Deftones nuts since Adrenaline. And just because gothic gays have blown Ax7 the last 5 years doesn't make them nearly as big or successful as the Deftones have been since 94. It took Ax7 3 albums to hit Gold status, which Deftones did on their first album, and I don't think they've ever sold more records than White Pony did. Over time, if you think Ax7 is a bigger band, you're a moron.

I could be completely wrong but aren't a7x and deftones on labels that are part of the same family?
I am pretty sure avenged has a new record coming out, whereas deftones do not. perhaps that has something to do with avenged headlining, despite record sales.

say what you want about Avenged Sevenfold but they have 2 of the baddest guitar players out there. those dudes shred even if you hate their image/what they've become since waking the fallen

"Over time, if you think Ax7 is a bigger band, you're a moron."

For the past 5 years, hands down, A7x has been a bigger band. It's not even up for debate. They sell more records NOW, more tickets NOW, get more radio play NOW. Thus, they're headlining.

anonymous

White Pony sold between 1 and 2 million records. A7X have 1 or 2 in that range, too.

7/15/2013 6:35:18 PM
You guys are fcking morons. One band has 1 gold album and 3 platinums and the other band has the exact opposite - 3 golds and 1 platinum. If you think Ax7 is the better success, you're a failure. And if you think Ax7 has the staying power the Deftones have, call me in 2023 after they've put up 20 years (lol @ the thought of them getting there) and see if anyone remembers them.

Here in California, you will hear the Deftones on the radio every day, I don't remember the last time I heard a Avenged Sevenfold on the radio here in California. Have you thought that this is Avenged Sevenfolds tour and asked for Deftones and Ghost. Real Ghost fans will not go to this show, but Deftones have a lot of hot topic fans like AS.

Ghost is just a glorified rock band - all these bands are shit.

anonymous

Malachi, no one is questioning their legacy, saying Avenge has sold more record, has more staying power or is a better band. In July of 2013, and for the past 4-5 years, they are a bigger band than Deftones. It's a really fcking simple concept to grasp.

Their singles are almost always in rotation on KROQ.

On respect alone, Deftones should be headlining.
Avenged Sevenfold is for gay pussies who pretend they are cage fighters.

I listen to KROQ everyday and all day...They are not on every hour or every 30 mins.

Yeah, because their new single was just announced or premiered today. I literally clicked on the main KROQ page and A7X pic was there with a link to this http://kroq.cbslocal.com/2 013/07/15/avenged-sevenfol d-releases-new-single-hail -to-the-king-announces-alb um-tour/

Also, look at active rock stations: the station that play Shinedown, Godsmack, Fiver Finger Death Punch, Stone Sour, Red and all that shit. A7X all over it. This isn't an argument up for debate or an opinion. It's a straight up fact.

anonymous

As is customary, deftones do a HORRIBLE tour. If its not with the family values tour, it's this kind of crap. A7x literally couldn't be worse. I know nothing about ghost, but they seem gimmicky enough to be entertaining after several beers.
