Sorry to bitch. But, sheesh. I was excited until I looked at a map.

WTF? it’s in the middle of nowhere, basically. On a friggin Weds. with a bunch of losers + has-beens to share the stage with. I mean, this ain’t no US Festival.

Seems like a bonehead move to me. So many better gigs/venues this summer…

It looks like the other nights that are booked have twin bills, so it seems likely that VH would play a longer set since they have no opener. I also see Piano Madness and Jeremy Camp are playing on other stages that night, so should be an evening of fine musical entertainment!

Hopefully any thickets who might be in attendance will be sitting in the first row on the lower level wearing a skirt and no panties – and the seats will be at eye level to anyone walking by on the floor.

I think anything that gets Van Halen on stage in front of an audience anywhere is a great move. If the promoters think having them will generate interest/revenue, more power to them. Why knock them for playing?

I still enjoy a dense bush. Maybe just pruned a bit. So front row thickets would be a nice thing! :mrgreen:
