Warfield (SF)

Thu, Feb 2, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Two questions...

1) What does one do with the guitar in that VIP package? (Let's assume putting it in the car isn't an option, but if it is, then re-entry wouldn't be a problem?)


2) Any other problems/solutions those who have attended via VIP can add? No one likes a crushed autographed poster/litho!

It's the only option I can think of since I suspect there is no VIP locker to make the most of that $600 investment (Guitar VIP + Ticket)

    Here is the one that closed out the show. This video is great quality (as far as boot leg concert videos go).

    Alright - copy, pate and enjoy.

    I've watched it about 15 times now. I think this vid does a great job of summing up the night. Last song of the night and the crowd is more amped than ever. Not that anyone but me cares, but you can catch a glimpse of me at 2:16 just to the left of the big head with a black hat. I turn and face the camera singing along with devil horns in the air, "what if I should die."


    KOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNN!

    Were you on the floor? I was to the right, (Munks side) looking at the stage. Way in the corner by the trash can lmfao!!! I had my family with me. My son sat on the trash can cuz the pit kept trying to push us up against the wall, or balcony, behind us, and my husband kept pushing them back over hahahah!!! It was fun times for sure!

    Yes - I'm always on the floor. Every Korn show I've been to. One time in Oakland at the Oracle arena I didn't have general admission floor tickets and was suppose to sit upstairs. I paid the usher $40 and he let me slip in. It was classic. How old is your kid? I've got two, girls is five and boy is three. I couldn't imagine there. I think it's cool you brought yours.

    The show was a lot of fun. And to update anyone who is curious about the guitar, I received mine at the show (I had read about people not getting them at the show and waiting for them to be sent out). It had no scratches or chips out of it. We (only 2 of us did Guitar VIP) received the guitar after the show. I walked it to the BART afterwards, and survived.

    The signed poster/setlist was in front of us pre-show. I put mine in the coat area. Much better than carrying it around getting it smashed up and it cost me only 2-bucks to do that.

    It was quite clear in SF that people still weren't understanding the dubstep in the opening acts stuff. However when it got to Korn, well, it's not the same sound as traditional dubstep. The tempo is much different. I think the fans weren't sure what to do with the very very slow pace that dubstep has, but lets face it, the demographic is more into head banging/moshing. People questioned the use of a smaller venue...to me it felt smaller when it was completely empty compared to when filled with people.

    For me though, the end (as seen at the end of the Blind video) it felt like it might have been a bit of a farewell tour (and if not, an appreciation tour because we were willing to see their experimentation with musical styles. Anyone else get that feeling? Perhaps my opinion also comes with the amount of interaction band members had with their kids between songs. I don't know if they usually travel with the band or not (since this is California, it made sense they might go to the gigs closer to home, and this was the last one before heading OS).

    Where did they play in San Jose? I'm sure it was a much larger venue. Were you on the floor or what? I've been to 9 shows starting from 2000 on. I'm think'n this was the best.


    They played at the San Jose State University Events Center. That's the basketball gym. I was on the floor both at San Jose, and at the Warfield.

    The floor area at the SJSU Events Center is bigger, but the arena crew purposely space you out a little more, they use masking tape to indicate how much space a person should have. It's not a lot of space, still probably about 1.5 feet by 1.5 feet, but people are spaced out a little bit more before the show starts.

    I just expected a longer setlist, especially considering the previous experience.

    This is the setlist I had in 2006:

    I thought the venue was fine. I've been to the Warfield for a ton of concerts, it's usually good.

    I hope it's not a farewell tour.

    Question: What did the different VIP packages include, and how much were they?

    I thought the dubstep was better live than I expected. I liked the pace.

    The regular VIP was ~ 130 and included the meet & greet, which included signed poster and setlist (there in front of you), and if allowed photo ops (JD didn't allow pics that night).

    Every other VIP was $350+ and included being on stage (to the side) for a few songs

    This is where it differs

    $350
    Drum VIP, includes drum session one-on-one
    Gaming VIP, includes gaming with JD in the bus after the concert one-on-one
    Listening VIP, includes (I *think*) listening to tunes with JD? up to 4-on-one

    $550
    Guitar VIP, includes guitar with Korn insignia, signed by the band

    None of the above counted concert ticket prices.

    Totally stoked to be able to go. Last time I saw Korn was at the Big Day Out in Adelaide, Australia in 1999.


    Wow, what a long time ago! Glad you enjoyed it.

    Thanks. The regular VIP seemed like a good deal, I would have been 50/50 for it. I'll watch out for it next time.

    Drum session sounds fun too, I would hope it would be about 45 minutes, but they probably can't do that for everyone. It's probably about 20 minutes per person.

    Was the guitar in a case, or were you carrying it by itself?

  14. RE: Warfield (SF)

    Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 11:35 AM

    Guitar is without case.

    And there is only one drumming session for one person. I heard it goes for about half an hour, but I don't know for sure. in SF it was at about 4:30. You get a cell phone number to call and be sworn to never give it out.

    Anybody know when we are supposed to get our download of the audio from the show?

  16. RE: Warfield (SF)

    Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 7:10 PM

    I hope they do soon, or at all. The don't release every show it seems. I've been waiting for them to release the audio for the show in Medford, OR I went to in June 2010, but it's still not released. But it was the end of that leg of the tour, so hopefully it will be released, and soon.
