Best Coast at Terminal 5 (more by Chris La Putt)
Best Coast

As mentioned earlier today in a tickets-on-sale post, Best Coast, who were initially supposed to open for Green Day on the latter's tour before it was postponed, are in fact opening for them on their rescheduled dates which include a NYC show on April 7 at Barclays Center. Tickets for that show are are on sale now and all tickets purchased for the original date (1/16) will be honored. All dates are listed below.

Speaking of artists that would probably be better fit to headline Terminal 5 but are opening in big arenas for pop stars, Miguel was announced to open for Alicia Keys on her tour which hits NYC on April 5 at Barclays Center and April 11 on Madison Square Garden. Tickets for those shows are not on sale yet but you can check ticketmaster for updates. All dates are listed below.

And one more: The Hives are touring in February and March as an opening act for Pink and that tour hits Madison Square Garden on March 22. That show is sold out, but the tour also hits Izod Center (3/23) in NJ and Nassau Coliseum (3/25) in Long Island and tickets for those shows are still available. All dates are listed below.

In related news, bands who you would think might be opening for bigger acts at Madison Square Garden, but are actually the headliners themselves include Sigur Ros (3/25) and Passion Pit (2/8). We're not sure who is opening for Sigur Ros, if anyone, but Matt & Kim open for Passion Pit. Muse also has two MSG shows coming up (as does Lady Gaga). Mumford and Sons also have two upcoming Barclays Center shows, one with The Felice Brothers, the other with Haim (both with Ben Howard).

All lists of dates below...

God I hope that Passion Pit show is empty. Sorry their egos couldn't handle a place smaller than MSG.

remember when people compared best coast and wavvs to nirvana and hole. jokes.

Passion Pit is selling miserably. That should have been a Radio City show or two at best.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 2:15 PM

^How do you know how well it is selling? I can understand if a show sells out but if there are tickets available how do you know how many are left to say weather or not it is selling well?

Wait a minute! Hives and PINK????

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 2:39 PM

2:38 - First of all, it's "whether", not "weather". Second of all, you can still purchase 100 level seats, and the 200 levels are wide open.

I don't blame the Hives for taking that gig. I would do it too. And if I had to choose a top 40 pop act to open up for, it would probably be Pink. I'm not too much of a fan of her music, but I'd want to drink with her. And lay her the pipe.

Pink and the Hives? Crowd mix should be interesting......

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 3:23 PM

There will be no mix. It will be all Pink fans. I doubt Hives fans are going to pay Pink $$ to see them at MSG.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 3:35 PM

or maybe the hives fans will be hitting on the Pink fans who are jail bait.

Best Coast

without a doubt the biggest piece of shit band to ever emerge from the blog-hype era

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 3:45 PM

Best Coast is definitely, the biggest piece of shit band that's making a living off being a band. Good for her.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 4:23 PM

No "You've got pink hives!" jokes. Ok...


"remember when people compared best coast and wavvs to nirvana and hole. jokes."

What? Really?? People were actually doing this???

The Hives opening for Pink??? Don't know how I feel bout that

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 6:52 PM

For every dollar that Best Coast makes, Satan kills a puppy.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 7:47 PM

the hives are also playing shows independently of pink. might want to list those or, what, no, too much work? oh okay...

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 10:42 PM

Don't forget that the Hives are a gimmicky manufactured pop band. They are simply wearing a different costume.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 11:12 PM

kick that annoying lady out of beast coast and just have that bob bruno guy rage.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 11:40 PM

I like my pop gimmicky.

Posted by Anonymous | January 12, 2013 1:17 AM

I'd rather see the Hives live, then see most of the crappy bands that play at 285 Kent on any given day. Most bands can learn a thing or two from them about how to engage an audience.

i once found wavves and best coast similar to nirvana and hole. in fact, i mentioned this in a comment on this website. i don't see the similarity anymore

Best Coast-Barf!

Posted by Anonymous | January 12, 2013 12:03 PM

You know what is synonymous with hipster music? Green Day apparently. Lets rip off Nirvana. And pair it with Green Day, and woo-hoo! It's alternative rock all over again. Do they think people are that stupid? I guess so. Fuck this bullshit ppl!

Posted by Anon | January 13, 2013 3:12 AM

The funny thing about Green Day & Nirvana is that Green Day single handedly ended Nirvana's career in 1994 with the 16 million selling monster named after diarrhea shit,Dookie.In Utero was struggling to even go platinum & all of a sudden,upbeat pop-punk from SF was the shit (followed by ska).
