Holy fucking $74 tickets.

B.A.D. will forever be the shit band that Mick Jones joined after leaving the Clash.

Their reunion is about as exciting as a reunion of the Ringo Star All Star Band.

Are those Black guys in the back?

1:09 almost made me choke on my coffee

in 1990 "rush" was my favorite song as a 7 year old boy. the weird bridge is still awesome. that album still holds up as a good pop record, though a little dated.

This will be great but why so much?!! So expensive for a club show. I know they have to cash in on just a few dates, but it's so unfair.

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2011 9:42 AM

word on the street is jacuzzi boys are opening. Can anyone confirm?

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2011 10:02 AM

Maybe they'll do some Clash favorites like 'Lost in the Supermarket'

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2011 10:11 AM

making fun of "Lost in the Supermarket" because it is obviously over your head...FAIL!

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2011 11:00 AM

^Have fun at this then chump

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2011 11:18 AM

oh was that supposed to be a joke? wow. lost in the supermarket is one of the greatest songs ever

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2011 11:23 AM

The tickets are 60 dollars before any fees!!!! plus, don't forget, if you try to avoid fees @ irving box office, you still have to pay a fee these days (although it is less than ticketmaster.com)...

I am passing... though I LOVE this band!!!

tough luck NYC tix+fees=$43.50 in LA!

NYC ticket prices may be more expensive then LA, but here in NYC we have really good quality hummus at nearly every major avenue... Y'all west coasters wouldn't know good hummus if you stepped in it.

they're only playing songs from the first four album, so no "Rush" (that was BADII).

The original incarnation of BAD was fantastic, No 10 Upping St (co-produced by Joe Strummer) is pretty flawless. So's the first album. And having Don Letts up there with them (one of the coolest cats ever) is awesome.

That said... ticket prices are OUTRAGEOUS espeically when you consider OMD were much more popular than BAD and tickets last night were about half that, or less.

anyone know the code?

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2011 10:09 AM

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2011 10:18 AM

well, they have the BAD2 album on the promo, so i wouldnt rule out rush.

they werent the greatest, but seriously it was a hell of a lot better then anything strummer did post-clash.

"hey werent the greatest, but seriously it was a hell of a lot better then anything strummer did post-clash."

Are even during the Clash. Black Market Clash anyone?

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2011 2:18 PM

...what's wrong with Black Market Clash? It's a good collection of B-sides and unreleased material.

are you possibly trying to refer to Cut the Crap?

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2011 2:38 PM

obviously you're all from out of town and won't be at the show...

Posted by Anonymous | March 12, 2011 10:05 AM

Keep the negative reviews coming kiddy's. More ticket for me!!!! OMG, this is awesome! Don Letts is GOD!

Posted by robert Lanzarotta | March 14, 2011 12:06 PM

I hope a lot of you assholes aren't there so there will be plenty of room for me front & center. They are playing to rave reviews in England

Dance to the tune of economic decline (and high ticket prices)
