I don't belive any of that. Most tickets are purchased well in advance and these shows were too close together to make a last minute decision like that.

They were probably never going in the first place and just used that as an excuse.

This is pretty spot on, imo. They simply enjoy performing. I don't think that feeling ever leaves a musician. The formula now with a few shows every now and then is perfect for everyone involved. Of course they are well aware about Jon's voice, but I don't think they care. They sell out arenas over and over again, and I think that's good enough for them.

Tico and David are definitely staying with Jon out of loyalty and because they probably still enjoy going out there and entertaining the fans. They are both well aware of the current condition of Jon's voice and they probably don't care.

They've been by Jon's side for close to 40 years and they've basically witnessed the evolution and aging of Jon's voice they've likely accepted the condition of Jon's voice and moved passed it. They will remain by Jon's side until the very last show and tour.

Sure I absolutely think some casual fans that love the hits are going on YouTube to check out what the band sounds like but if I'm casual to the point where I know the hits and see them every three or four years but not really "in the loop" of what's been going on, I wouldn't be on YouTube looking at live clips. To me, that puts it one level past casual.

THINFS was a rough tour but at least the hits sounded like the hits, this version of the band is strange sounding. Band is tight, key is dropped, Jon is terrible. RD does have a point in that the experience is more than the voice, it's up to you if that turns you off completely.

A lot of people are saying he has sounded terrible since 2017, I'm not so sure.. the first leg or two of THINFS Tour he sounded fine.. not great - certainly a decline from 2013, but still more than strong enough. In 2019 yes he sounded bad but I thought that was just from the constant touring for 2 years and he would be improved or at least closer to his 2017 voice by the 2020 tour (now 2022 tour). Instead, this is next-level bad... nowhere close to anything from the THINFS tour imo.. it's simply TERRIBLE.. hard to listen to. But Dave & Tico probably don't care, they probably have Jon turned down in their mix.. I know I would.

I think this board likes to think the things we focus on are as clear as day to everyone else. We fixate A LOT and notice things that wouldn't even be a blip on a casual's radar. Not so much Jon's bad vocals but for sure the decline we've talked about since 2000.
