Sum 41

The Band Gets Desperate

Yesterday I received this email from the good folks at MLSE:


Sum 41 will return to their hometown to perform live at General Motors Centre on March 19, 2008.

As an MLSE Live Insider this is your exclusive opportuntiy to purchase 2 tickets for the price of 1.
Good thing my name was in all caps, as I sometimes forget it...

But I'm not writing about email style; I'm writing about the sad state Sum 41 seems to find itself in: two-for-one ticket deal? Whoa, I don't think the local polka and folk music festival has an offer so generous.

The cost for a pair, by the way, is $32.50, plus all the bizarre convenience fees Ticketmaster charges to penalize its customers.

I last wrote about Sum last July after the band released its new album that sounded wholly unoriginal. I'm not surprised ticket sales are not great for their tour but I never thought a two-for deal was in the band's future.
