you only have to think about this for 5 seconds to realise there’s more to people asking for set-times than an unwillingness to ‘support’ bands


#228

So now they’re just going to be inundated with people asking for said set times.

Well done morons


#229

Shows quite a negative view of their support bands too


#230

Reckon it is really all about trapping people to buy drinks for as long as possible


#231

Some guy on that comment thread was saying they only accept a £10 minimum card spend too - printing money (so to speak)


#232

You’ll get no headliner until you finish your support act


#233

God it’s so fucking dumb


#234

i don’t owe the support band anything, just the same as i don’t owe the headliner anything if i’ve paid to see the support band instead. removing the ability to make the decision for yourself as a paying punter is a really shitty move and definitely smacks of trying to force you to empty your wallet.


#235

Their social media guy is a real charmer


#236

FFS


#237

Hahaha is it?


#238

“And on MOTD tonight - Man Utd supported by Burnley”
@Scott_Chegg obvs


#239

Yeah this confirms the brexit vibes i get from the 100 club then


#240

FTFY

I don’t really have a problem with venues trying to get people in early to buy drinks, I can’t imagine it’s easy for independents to stay afloat and I’m sure every little helps. I do, however, have a problem with sanctimonious dickheads proclaiming with a straight face that they’re doing it to support the bands lower down the bill (who’ll probably get paid the same however many people see them).
