2019 AVA Tour Thread


Recommended Posts

With the way the last 5 years have shaken out, I find I'm not really able to consider it the same band/entity in the first place. Even though I did enjoy Nine a lot more than California! But my mind just doesn't file the last 3 releases into the same space at all, regardless of logic or the band name they use. So yeah I'd definitely be interested in having Tom come "back" because that's the only way I could actually consider Blink to be a real band again instead of this separate project featuring Mark and Travis. And whatever they did together at that point would go into my brain's Blink section as their first release since Dogs Eating Dogs. I wouldn't have very high hopes of it being very good haha, but it would be incredibly fascinating to see what they came up with. 

Anyway, I'm not even trying to be cool or holier than thou about all the Blink vs. Not Real Blink stuff, I just literally can't even think of the past 5 years as part of the same legacy. Mark + Tom x Travis = Blink, it's just math. Unfortunately I don't think it's possible for them to ever have a real relationship again, let alone a relationship close enough to produce great music together.

Alright picture heavy, Marik I'll answer your stuff in a separate post later: Here are some cool shots of AVA I got: Here are the VIP gifts: Here's my merc

Tom added Reckless/Wishing Well to his acoustic medley last night, so cool:    

This tour was almost a decade in the making for me. For a quick back story; i was an early AVA fan that awaited Whisper dropping. (In fact, my co-worker at the time travelled from Canada to see the ve

I think the real blink magic is dead. I'd be interested but not excited like I was in college during the first reunion. They can't fool me again. Even with Tom back. Even if they did a rehearsed hug on stage yet again. I'd be far more excited for BCR or +44.

I feel for people when their shows get cancelled, it has happened to me several times and is just the worst.

Tell me about it. I flew from western canada to toronto for this week. And still have non-refundable flight +hotels for a few days yet in montreal. Ugh

I showed by 30+ year old buddy who vaguely remembered blink a video of Darkside and he laughed his ass off. Couldn't believe what he was seeing. Showed him Kiss and Tell and told him he was the old blink dude and his response was "well clearly he made the right decision to leave". Funny hearing that from a fan with no invested interest in either of the bands - as Darkside is arguably one of new blink's best releases.

Dang dude, sorry to hear that... I've mentioned it before, but PSA to anyone in the future, if you are making flight/hotel plans to see blink or their side acts, pay the extra for the insurance every time!!!

Tom's most recent interview with Philly Jessie back on 18th i believe, discusses the re-scheduling. 

End of May might have seemed like an odd time to re-schedule, but he menteined doing it then with some festivals they have coming up. Some easy sleuthing could probly figure out which festivals are within those 2wks or so. I wonder if more dates will be tacked on either side of the current dates. He did mentein 'doing some things in Canada'. But that could just be referencing the 2 dates they currently have listed.

I wonder if the setlist will be tinkered with anymore. I was just excited to here additions of Valkerie, Clever Love, Dry Your Eyes. But i suppose there's more time for another new song- like Time Bomb- to enter the picture. (Hell, id just be happy if Kiss & Tell gets played)

Even thou AVA themselves havent announced the dates as postponed yet, it looks like behind the scenes that is indeed what is happening.

If you check the specific venue's sites, it will reveal which concerts are postponed so far. I think a week ago, the NJ venue revealed ava is postponed, i just checked the Montreal venue and AVA is listed as postponed officially now (whereas the other concerts the day before AVA , and the day after AVA, are not postponed as of yet) So it is an artist specifc postponment, and not just a blanket venue-wide postponment.

 

Note to AvA:  pls dont wait till the day before to announce yourself officially

Just got the official ticketmaster email saying Montreal is cancelled. And not Postponed, like some other shows i have. But listed as Cancelled. Shitty

That show was also already postponed from January too, right? Probably easiest to cancel it right now since everything is in flux. Disappointing but not surprising.

Oh for sure, it is the right thing.

But to postpone it, like everyone else is doing. Not cancel it altogether. But i realize there's a million tours looking to reschedule right now, and only a certain amount of venues. Harder to do than it seems.

Im just muffed, cuz first time around in Jan i flew out to Toronto+Montreal for the shows, lost money on hotels/flight etc. Then rebooked for new dates in May. Booked work holidays, etc. All in, lots of money and time lost, and no shows in the end.
