They are making up for the canceled shows, you can either get your money back or hold on to your stub until they come back whenever they decide to.

My friend just called me about this, and I think I will be going. Cheech and Chong + Slipknot, Sublime, Bad Brains, Pennywise, Cypress Hill...not bad if you are into the weed. I pretty much going mainly to see Bad Brains, though- those guys kick ass!

When I first heard that Sublime was going to play at this concert, I was like "What? What? I thought their singer died". Until today, I didn't know they were going to get a new singer.

Like it or not, people equal sh!t was a great slogan...i used it several times myself especially while driving,everytime some jag off or douche bag would cut me off or damn near cause an accident the first thought i had after dropping about 10 f bombs was people equal sh!t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not gonna be able to make this show but i would have loved to have seen the geto boys....fan of old school rap(84-95) and the GB had great songs back in the day...fuc*em, trigga happy nigga, chuckwick aka the chucky song, and gotta let your nutz hang were classics....as far as slipknot, well their mayhem performance was average, seeing some of their download fest performance via the internet was again average so i ve kinda grown to the fact that this band is about to leave us for good and their past shows and performances will never be recaptured, and its a shame because they use to be one of the best live acts around (99-03)
