Ive been to some big concerts such as the Rockstar Mayhem Tour but not to many local concerts. I am planning on going to the Despised Icon concert on Tuesday February 17 at the Orpheum in Ybor City, Florida. Other bands are Beneath the Massacre, Carnifex, The Plasmarifle, and Neuraxis. It starts a 7. I would like to know how long this concert would go to. The Orpheum is a small venue compared to others in Tampa. How long do you think each band would play for and how long it would take for them to set up? What is a guess of when it would end?

Now that I have answered the question above, what would be a good estimate for the cost of the concert (for people who have been to this venue) and do you think the bands will stay after they play there set to sign and stuff?

Probably around 4 hours, weather permitting.

I know its not that small but compared to like Jannus Landing I heard it is a little smaller. So like 11ish? Thats good.

I'd say around a half hour each for the two openers, an hour for the supporting act, and two hours for the headliner.

Four hours total.

EDIT: Whoops. Didn't see there was a fifth band. Eh, I'm not gonna do more math. Math sucks.

the local shows around here are really quick, like each band plays between like 5 and 8 songs and then there's like 20 minutes in between bands and you just chill outside or whatever, because it's florida...

Anyone from the Tampa area please help me out on this. How much are 5 band concerts usually at the Orpheum? And do the bands stay afterwards for signings and stuff?

Are all your songs really short or something? Or do you just really like playing 6 hour sets?
Please don't assume I care enough about your guitar rig, your general thoughts on life, the funny things people have said about you, or anything else not related to the topic at hand to have the view signatures option turned on. I don't.

Ok, I got the time answer but now I am asking about the ticket price and the signing.

The shows I've been to about that size that started around 7 ended around 12

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.
