Whoo! These instagram posts have got me pretty excited for this tour. Hope they break out some classics! I’m taking my wife and 2 daughters (first VH show for all of them, first rock show for my youngest) so it’s gonna be great no matter what. I wanted to go to the first show of the tour, but the 2nd will do. It will be hard to not look at the previous setlist, but I can do it. Certainly much easier than, say, the 25th show of the tour!

Just checked in at Ticketmaster to see how sales were going. I’d say they are going “Ok” for this venue, but I did notice they have already slashed some prices sections 101 and 103. There were some blocks of seats listed at $450 when I bought my tix. They are now listed at $149…

The $450 seats would probably have been the mid-priced VIP seats.

Not sure why you need a set list printed up for every night if you dont CHANGE the setlist from night to night :cry:

They actually ran a ton of copies on the first night.. Seriously though.. mixing it up would be nice. Keep the deep cuts they added and rotate the ones from last tour – with lyrics and everything.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

Dave talked women’s soccer before ICM. Pretty cool for my girls to hear.

Cool thanks for insights. Big crowd? You grab any merch?

Awesome show! I’d say the crowd was big, yes. The covered part was full and there were lots of folks in the grass – everybody was way into it too.
They have a cool Hawaiian themed 2015 tour shirt but I didn’t get it. I’ll wait until the end of the tour and get it online for less…
For me this was the best show from the last 3 tours. Band was loud and tight, Eddie played great and Dave brought his A game. I had a lot of fun and enjoyed Dave’s schtick immensely. He seemed to sing more than usual too!
IASR was a little rough and Dave had them turn off the smoke machine during DTNA, but everything else was excellent – especially Ed’s solo.

Oh, and I loved the high-speed Hot for Teacher!! It’s Ass-kicking!!!
