The teenage me would be going absolutely nuts over this. Should make for some unique crowds. I think most CKY fans that aren't HIM fans as well are past the hatred of the band in this day and age, but it should still be a nice mix of people at those shows. I wonder if this will help them get over the hump to sell out the tour. Only four so far according to Heartagram, but it's hard to trust that site and how updated it is. It's hard to believe New York isn't sold out. Almost makes me sad I won't be going.

I'm 29 and my teenage self is kinda freaking out. Truth be told, I've never stopped listening to CKY.  The only downside was I wish it was 5 years ago when Deron was still in the band.  New CKY album just doesn't have the same sonic spectrum.  Also, wish there was a trade in program. Perhaps 3 teeth in exchange for 69 eyes.

I still listen to them as well. They've always been my 1b to HIM's 1a, except during times when I've been bored with HIM. This is one of those times with their new album coming out recently, which I enjoyed, but I do sometimes wonder if I would enjoy it quite as much if it didn't have the CKY name attached to it and it was just some random rock band.

big fat noooope.

Had 3 computers in 3 different households with 2 browsers running each. 4 of the browsers were between 97-99% before the beginning of the sale (we entered the queue an hour and fifteen minutes before). About a minute into the sale, those all refreshed to saying "the event is complete". 1 was able to load the ticket selection page. But when you you tried to go to checkout, it said "# of tickets weren't available"

Yes congrats indeed!

Having a queue system like this doesn't make much sense.  But o well.

I got in the queue at exactly 9:30 on safari and google chrome so I had 2 chances. Now I'm wondering whether to go to the show on the 27th in Helsinki or maybe the 30th in Tampere

Those who have been to Helldone before and aren't from Finland, how much was the trip? I'm talking about transportation, accommodation, and of course tickets. Not including food and everything else you need or may want while you're there, it's gotta be pretty damn expensive.

I think the last time I looked it would cost about ~$2000 for the flight there alone.

Flights are usually £300
Hotel for 4 nights £450(always stay 4 nights even if we only go to Helldone 1 night like 2013 and 2014.)
Tickets £60 a night
Spending money £300
So if one Helldone ticket £1100 (obviously 2012 was even more expensive as stayed for 5 nights and went to Helldone on each of the 4 nights.)
So in total flying from the UK £1100/€1225/$1440
I guess it depends which hotel you stay in or maybe some people stay in a hostel. Also dependant on where you fly from, I guess US could easily cost another $500-$1000.

I thought the name sounded familiar, but I couldn't figure out why. Now I remember I checked them out awhile back based on their NIN influence. I don't remember any more than that so I must not have liked them, but I might as well give them another shot. Finding new modern bands and artists that I like is so hard for me. I try but everything seems so soulless and/or a bad tribute to musical days gone by. No one seems to have anything to say anymore. And don't even get me started on how bland instrumentation across the board is today, when there's actually real instruments involved and it's not computer programmed of course. So dull. What happened to guitar riffs and basslines that would get stuck in your head for days they were so good? What happened to songs that hit you immediately upon your first listen and left you thinking wow and wanting to listen to it over and over again? Anyone have any recommendations?
