I remember when we did Sickcon. Sickcon sold out, based on several factors (convention/added value, only UK show etc) BUT when BDS added a few more shows around Sickcon they struggled to sell tickets. Of course the fact that the diehards already had sickcon tickets probably didn`t help! At one show near Birmingham the support act pulled more people then they did, as shown when 80% of the audience seemed to leave after the local opening act (a Nirvana tribute if I recall) finished.
It's very sad and shouldn`t be that way but it's a fact of life.
