    Way to write a sensational headline, BDN

       No kidding ! Geez, I came in to the article thinking I was going to read about something awful had happed and the first line is how great it went.

        You appear to be disappointed that it went better than you assumed when you  “came into the article”?  Please enlighten us because often we cannot discern one’s intent through typed words.

          Because the headline seems to indicate that it did not go well.

           Yes, you got me. I was really wishing bad things happened. Let me guess, you are that guy that is always contrary no matter what. Sad really, those people are so lonely they go around taking about themselves as “us”.

            “Yes, you got me. I was really wishing bad things happened. ”

            Thank you for owning up to it.

      You haven’t noticed recently how they fudge up the headlines to attract readers or capitalize on tragedies to get readers?

         Not to mention the poor editing in general.I can’t think of the last time I’ve seen an issue of the BDN without some sort of basic error.VERY sloppy.

          Then apply for a job there and clean it up. 

  • I attended this show and just like to say how disappointed I am with how things were run. I bought a ticket 10 rows from the stage but the seats ended up being trashed. 
    This was the “seating chart” I bought a ticket for:
    This is where my seat ended up:
    I hope this type of thing never happens again to the waterfront concerts.

      wow… if I were you I would call my credit card company and dispute the charge… just send them that picture!

      • I am working on that. Also don’t think that promoter is a friendly as everyone thinks he is, I have been emailing him and it doesn’t seem he’s fan friendly.

        • I think he is, and i think you will see adjustments in future shows. He may not be able to respond to individual emails, at least not timely, but he seems to correct problems and issues as he gets experience in an area. Obviously he has to adjust with more security down there.

    • Wow, this never happens at the Bangor concerts, thankfully. You are blaming the promoter, but it sounds like a crowd problem, though the police did not think any major issues. Rap concert crowds seem quite a bit rowdier though, hopefully those shows stay south.

        Only 6000 of 11000 tickets sold….. That will keep the crap south. I be ZZ Top and Skynard sell out. Yessa

      That’s the best use of chairs at a concert.  Who wants to sit like a school kid at a concert?  They should put seats around the outside for handicapped people and let the rockers stand up and groove.

    • First rap/hard rock concert I assume?  Surprised there were chairs to start with.

    •  That’s rediculous, I’d demand some kind of a refund

    Congrats on your first show in Scarborough, WFC. The headline should have read a little better. I stay focused on the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion, but success to you! Scarborough is in very good hands with this company. Grade A++++ And it will only get better.

       My thoughts exactly.Out of 6K people,there was a problem with .03%.

  • Al Brady

    its the bangor SENSATIONALIST barely news!

  • Conley Raye

    Rap & Hip Hop. not for me but……..Freedom of choice and I guess its entertainment for some.
    Good luck with it as sucess can only mean, top acts for Bangor’s waterfront. Love to see, John Fogerty, Delbert McClinton, Bob Segar, Bonnie Raitt and so on. Waiting on Larry Chance & The Earls when they play the Folk Festival. Nothing like ole time rock annd roll and doo-wop.

    I took to teenagers who love Wiz and Mac downstate to this concert and they loved it.Of course this was their first concert but they’re going to remember it forever so I thank anyone who had anything to do with putting on this show.

  • When is the Phish from Vt. gonna be invited to throw down in Scarborough???

  • Furthur would get that place rockin!!!!

  • Another issue not addressed in this article is the fact that there is a case of false advertising and honestly fraud. Going into the concert people paid upwards of $70 to get the best possible seats. Basically right after the show started the seats were all moved and people had rushed the stage. this left me with no seat and a waste of 70 bucks for basically a general admission style concert. When I asked an event staff what they were going to do to compensate me for this mishap she said someone was going on stage between sets that people who want a refund could leave and get their money back. that announcement never happened. After a while I asked the same worker and another what was happening with a refund and they both said they didnt know. When calling the buiness offices of the waterfront concerts it was said that they announced they deal to get the refund, which is a lie. I would have had no problem if the concert was advertised as GA but after wasting $70 I am upset and all the company is concerned with is saving themselves.
    I expect this issue to be addressed and I am honestly dissapointed in the way waterfront concerts handle this concert.
