- What modern day bands or music artists could sell out a big stadium?
I think that with the internet being so accessible and the cynicism brought about by x-factor.. there’s much less of a herd mentality..
it’s not just music fans that are bothering to access good music.. but pop fans too.. leaving a more knowledgeable and fractured fanbase in general..
far fewer people are willing to simply just buy into the next big thingPosted 7 years agoCougarSubscriber
Generalising, to be a stadium band, you need to have been around for a while. Saying “what current band who appeared in the last five years” implies that current music is crap, which is a bit disingenuous.
Stadium acts that jump to mind include Madonna, U2, Metallica… U2 formed in 1976, do you reckon they’d have sold out a stadium in 1981?Posted 7 years ago
Indeed, one of my regrets is not going to see them then, I had the chance. Most bands that can fill stadiums take much longer to get there and when they do they are are bloated and lazy living off of past glories, but at that time they were at their swaggering best.Posted 7 years agostevenmenmuirMember
Guns n Roses within 5 years? Saw them at Gateshead and the Stones at Hampden and have no desire to see anybody else in a stadium. Live music should be experienced in the likes of the Barras or King Tuts. Saw the Black Keys the other week at the Corn Exchange, about 3000 capacity? Wouldn’t want to see anybody anywhere bigger than that. Was in King Tuts on Sunday, fantastic venue and gig.Posted 7 years agooliverd1981Member
I have to say the Foo Fighters are the only band I’ve seen with the presence for that size of gig. Probably 4 times the size of the Aerosmith gig I saw in Dublin, 10 times the size of the Iron Maiden and Muse gigs I saw in the noughties.
I think I’d enjoy a large scale Klaxons gig, maybe.Posted 7 years ago
