Max Bemis Solo Shows

Postby Norgan » Thu Dec 09, 2010 6:27 pm

Well, Max is at it again! Announced just today, Max will be heading off to 10 locations across the country to put on a solo show. What's in store for the fans that attend? Perhaps a few Painful Splits songs? Maybe an old pre-IARB song or two? How about a brand new song planned for his next album? Who knows! Speculation aside, I personally haven't seen an acoustic set from Max in almost 3 years and I can't wait to get my fill again. So who is excited to go to one (or more?!) of these shows?

The tickets for all of these shows go on sale on December 16th, but there is also a pre-sale set up for December 10th 1:00 PM EST. According to some news from Say Anything's Facebook page, the pre-sale will offer the tickets with a lower service charge, and also offer a t-shirt bundle. The pre-sale tickets will be available at maxbemis.frontgatetickets.com

I did manage to find something interesting... Apparently, if you go to www.ticketfly.com you can already purchase tickets for the San Francisco show. I'm not quite sure what to make of that, but it's there.

So, as a favor to all of you fans at PlaySA, I did some research and compiled a list full of details about these shows. It has a bit more useful information than you get from the lists on Say Anything's website. Some information, though, I wasn't able to find yet, and some of it may be slightly incorrect. I'll try to keep this updated over the next few weeks as more information from the venues becomes available.

I saw on Facebook when they announced the Texas show and I sorta just thought "Oh he must be heading to a close bar or something just for shits and giggles." I about lost my mind when I saw the Philly date. Even better, I just saw Eisley at the North Star Bar and the place is INCREDIBLY small. There were probably 50 people there and half the room was full, not to mention that in order to even get on the stage, the bands had to climb over a rope and go up the stairs I was standing right next to. A lot of them had to hold on to me to keep balanced. I am SO excited, at this point it feels pretty surreal. I feel like the possibility of Baseball goes up with this, do you know what I mean? At least maybe break out somethin' like By Tonight or Total Revenge.

Jesus I am so excited, I'm gonna grab them tomorrow as soon as they become available. :D

i was really excited when i saw max post about it on twitter.
i'm def gonna try to see him at the Hoboken, NJ date.
I think it's great that he's a doing a solo tour because it gives him a lot of freedom to play whatever he wants. This is the opportunity for fans of two tongues, painful splits, and the old EPs to finally hear them live!
Also i think it'll certainly strengthen the bond between max and his fans. Seeing him play solo and talk to the crowd reminds us that he's a real person no different than the rest of us.

Can't wait to see him on tour! It's gonna be crazy-awesome :D

So i tried to buy tickets from the link in one of Max's tweets but I clicked on the West Hollywood tour date and it said unavailable. Is it sold out..?

As I understand it, there was/is a small portion of tickets set aside for the presale. If you can't buy tickets now, you should be able to when they go on sale on the 16th.

Clarification from the man himself:
@MaxBemis: "I will be playing mostly SA, one two tongues song and a painful splits song or two on the acoustic fourths those asking"

Ah, but with a car and a bit of gas money, you're probably not too far from Boston, MA (anywhere from less than 2 to 4 and a half hours) and everybody comes there. That's where I saw the SA/MCS tour. I live in NB, Canada. We stopped in NH at that giant-ass liquor store
Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you.
It will set you free. Be more like the man you were made to be.

the beauty of love as it was meant to be.
