Getter’s Visceral Tour has been a topic of controversy for the past few weeks. It all started when he got boo-ed off stage by his disappointed “fans” at Stereo Live in Houston.
But it seems like the hatred got the best of him and in a heartfelt message, Tanner cancelled the entirety of his remaining tour.
“You win” – those 2 words are enough of
In this whole situation, Getter himself has been the biggest casualty. He actually poured his soul out in the new album- we all could hear that.
His album was well acclaimed by the listeners
His Visceral tour targeted mainly major festivals and venues – which makes sense considering its someone as big as Getter. But this also meant that a lot of the attendees didn’t care about his music and just expected to hear some cookie-cutter bs. Conversely, a lot of people that liked Visceral couldn’t attend these shows.
There probably needs to be a different- more subtle approach when experimenting with new avenues like this. We can’t really blame those festival-goers for not listening to the music of a particular artist among many.
However that does bring me to the point I firmly believe in-His old fanbase was no fanbase at all, it was just a crowd
Poor guy couldn’t even experiment with his own album tour. I mean it wasn’t even a surprise, he dropped the album first and then went on tour. It makes you wonder whether his “fans” really supported him.
Getter mentioned that he feels he used to make sell-out music and that Visceral is the only music he made for himself. It could be that he never got to develop a proper supporting fanbase, and the sheer number of people that went to his shows only cared about loud music and seeing a popular artist on stage.
The Toxic Community
Getter being boo-ed off-stage was apparently not the first time the heavy bass community showed such a toxic
The Stereo Live crowd seems to be particularly bad in this regard, as just last December they boo-ed off MUST DIE!’s opener who played a house set. MUST DIE! had to come forward in his
Even artists as big as Kaskade are not immune to the toxicity of the EDM scene as seen last week:
Mental illness is a widespread phenomenon and has been rooting strongly in the music industry. Tanner has been open about his mental illness, and his fan base has given him support and respected him after posting about it on social media. You could tell he had been working on
Getter’s Visceral Tour has always been advertised as a “Visceral show” and nothing else. He delivered what he promised and people got what they paid for. If they didn’t check out what Visceral was prior to the show, it was totally their fault.
As a fan of Visceral and Getter’s new sound, I sincerely hope he comes out of the dark place he’s currently
This is a nightmare for any artist and should remind every creator out there to develop a community and a genuine relationship with them.
