Yep, you are right. Colored me shocked. From this week's billboard boxscore.

286 Alter Bridge Harrah's VooDoo Lounge North Kansas City, Mo. Jan. 28, 2017 $49,417 1,398 / 1,398 1 / 1 $60, $35 C3 Presents/Caesars Entertainment

I think from what I've seen when they show up on the Billboard Boxscore, this might have been their first non-NYC sold-out show showing on the Billboard Boxscore.

They played the Midland on the Fortress tour which is played by bigger bands like Stone Sour and Killswitch. And they didn't fill any of the upper level. The switch to the Voodoo Lounge was a good call.

Haven't gotten my tickets yet, but I'll be at the Dallas show. I'm sure I'll find a way.

Ordered mine finally. Fourth show of the cycle for me. I think I'm doing the guitar clinic next cycle when I have five to six years experience on me.

Do the guitar clinic now. They have players of all ranges, including total newbies, and Mark is welcoming of everyone regardless of chops. Just hanging with Mark and hearing how he practices and sees the fretboard and thinks about building solos and going through some of his warmups is totally worth it at any level. And even if some of the solo exercises quickly gets over your head (or fingers) it's always good to have a look at where you're aiming in the future.

:yeahthat !!!

The one I attended last year had one guy with absolutely 0 guitar experience. He just wanted to see Mark do his thing for an hour and get his SE signed. It's really an incredible value when you consider the face time you get with the man himself.

I'll think it over. But I'm pretty sure Ill wait till next tour, and hope he does it next tour. I feel like four shows in one cycle is asking a lot of my wife, who surprisingly has a good time at AB.

YES!!! I'm living out my dream. I've only seen AB 4 times up to this point. My great shame, I know. So I'll be seeing them December 3rd here in SA, then I'll drive up to Dallas on the 5th and watch them again with my brother. I'll spring for the meet and greet here since I'll be by myself. Then watch them with my bro that second show. AWESOME!!! Hopefully the songs they don't play here will be the one's they play up north.

Have fun, man. This will be my seventh time. I'm sure you'll at least get a couple of different songs. They have been mixing it up better than ever this tour.
