"Wednesday 13 announces a UK tour!"
I'm listening. Intently. Fang Bang is a fucking stellar album and I love it to bits. To hear some of that shit live... what I would give...
"... the tour is called Undead Unplugged ..."
Oh, so it's an acoustic set. Fuck me I guess. I really don't like acoustic music very much. I've never been into it. I still decided on getting a ticket as I really don't see W13 coming back round here any time soon.
My first mistake was standing front centre at the barricade. It was just Wednesday and Roman Surman sitting on bar stools on the stage, and every time Wednesday looked up we made eye contact and it was horrible. I felt awkward because I didn't know any of the words to his new album (everything after Fang Bang is trash, and I've tried hard to get into it. Sorry boo.)
The other band to play was Bourbon Crow, which is Wednesday 13's country project. I mean... whatever.
The girl next to me had gone VIP and knew EVERY word to EVERY song, and was with her mam. She had been following him around on tour and had sneaked backstage for pictures/autographs every time. Good for her I guess.
Newcastle Uni's venue is a decent size, but had been cornered off to make a smaller/more intimate venue, and looking around there could not have been more than 40 people there. I was astonished as surely every edgy teenager loves Wednesday 13 so this place should have been sold out. Or at least I did, maybe all the goths are into mumble rap or metalcore now.
I briefly considered going VIP as I had done for <PIG>, but the VIP package was £70 so fuck all that. I did however get a shirt and a pin badge. They're really cute.
I would still give my left tit (both of them, actually. I'm desperate to get rid of them) to see Wednesday 13 live, but the non-acoustic version. Shit, Murderdolls even. IMAGINE!!! Maybe some time in the future I'll get that opportunity.
