wow. thats pretty interesting. well the whole thing started as a way for new bands to get exposure and promote themselves, and I think this will put the focus back on that and not so much the 'headliners'.

The only thing is for people who can afford tickets this going to make it tougher to get tickets to the show. They are not just opening the gates and letting people in you have to have a ticket. Everyone and their brother who likes Rock will want to go.
