Good point. Remember when Christine managed to sell five platinum records all on her own? Oh, wait....


This is a ridiculous argument to even have. We can all go ahead and debate who has more talent, who performs best, who can or can’t sing anymore, who to blame this whole break-up mess on, etc. all day. Those are all valid arguments and discussions. “Numbers”, however, aren’t debateable. We all know who fills the most seats and sells the most records.

there's quantity and there's quality. The two do not go automatically hand in hand.

McDonald's has big numbers too.

lol agree - so why did you bring it up in the first place?

we all know and agree SN fills the most seats, and nobody was discussing it in this thread, till you decided we should.

Great point! Billions and billions sold...To coin a phrase: "Nothing else matters".

Literally this entire thread is y’all crowing over the number of tickets sold so far and for how much, and then you guys complain that Stevie’s people are all “numbers people” lol

No, we weren't talking about Stevie and her numbers. You brought up the subject, so we can all admit she's the one with the larger numbers. We don't care Stevie's numbers.

No, you were repeatedly rooting for a band to fail and hoping they sell nothing and have to go crawling back to LB. I pointed out rather logically that they’ll sell tickets no matter what and that I highly doubt there will be any jealousy or competition sparked by LB, who we all know does low key tours in teeny tiny off-the-radar venues. Every comment I have made since then was in response to specific quotes directed at me. I never brought the words “numbers”, “sales”, or “hits” into this conversation. You all did and I replied.

We weren't talking about jealousy or competition. We're hoping Fakewood Mac tour fails because they fired Lindsey. We don't care about the quality of this band. We don't need to hear them.

Stevie probably has more notches in her headboard than the rest of them combined. What does that make her? I know!
