I live in Chicago. On June 1, Sam and Dave are in town!!

Guess who else is playing Chicago that night, that I wanted to go see?

The Atomic Punks.

This is the best problem I've ever had :D

Well, Maya, the Punks usually take the stage around midnight wherever they play. So, you just might be able to catch all 3. I can almost guarantee you that Ralph and company will be at that concert, at least for Dave's portion.

Here's something you Chicagoites might not have considered....

Maybe the Punks might want to catch Dave & Sammy themselves??

And it might give them an incentive to do one Hell of a set afterwards?

How often does a cover band have to compete with the original artist (sort of)in the same town the same night??

what's cool about Chicago is that most of the bars stay open later(4-5am) depending on their liquor permit.

I'm sure The Punks will wait a little bit to give people a chance to get up there because where Roth and Sammy are playing is pretty far away from where The Punks are playing--at least 30-40min drive(Tweeter Center is down on the southwest end out in the burbs and The Punks are playing up on the northwest side)

Lead Synth, I hope you are not really debating which show you will attend... Come on, my brother's band can convingly perform VH; however, they cannot provide authentic autographs from Van Halen's former frontmen!

04.16.02, 10:50 PM
isn't your brother Donny Mark? ;) :D graemlins/thumb.gif

tu da da

seriously though, there is no reason you can't go to both shows

the DLR/SH show will be over by 11:30 and The Punks show will start around 12ish(probably after 12 knowing the concert crowd is headed there)

So party at your house, Hain?? :D

I'm considering taking a trip out to Chicago to catch these shows. You guys will have to show me around! graemlins/devil.gif

Okay, I'm jealous. I live in CT and the closes date for the tour is Ohio. I really hope they extend the tour.

Do any of you avtually think you will be able to get out of the parking lot, drive 15 miles, be able to hear, and let alone be sober enough to go see the APs. I know I won't! Lets scope out a joint to met up at in Orland Park. Theres lots of places by the mall.

hain23x
04.17.02, 06:35 AM
when I party, I maintain. I don't get trashed like I did when i was 21(although this might be the exception) and I'm planning on taping Dave and The Punks(security willing ;) ) so I'll have to be somewhat sober to pull all that off.

the show at Tweeter will be over at 11.

Punks go on at 12ish.

I'm going to BOTH! :D

but if everyone wants to pre-party somewhere closer to TC that's fine with me! I won't have to worry about cleaning up my apartment after everyone leaves.

I don't know that area down there very well(although I did live in Palos Hills for a few months which is close) so if anyone wants to make suggestions as to where to go to pre-party I'm open to ideas graemlins/thumb.gif

hain23x
04.17.02, 06:39 AM
the only place I know close to The TC is Car Max! :D I might drive out that way and scout some locations this weekend.

Maybe I missed some news - but don't the Punks and DLR share a guitar player these days. Presumably if Bryan can make both shows then so can everyone else smile.gif

just went by ticketmaster and they still don't have a listing for this date yet. they do have the next night's listing however.

the djs on 105.9 here (Kevin Mathews and Co.) were talking about the tour yesterday. They were pumped up! Kept playing various VH audio clips and talked about it for a good 15 minutes.

I will FOR SURE go scout out a party place near the Tweeter Center sometime in the next few weeks.

Is everybody planning on getting the high priced tix? My girlfriend isn't a Van Halen fan at all graemlins/wtf.gif , but she said that will HAVE to get the good seats because she wants to see just what all the fuss is about UP CLOSE! :cool:

and then it's off to The Atomic Punks! graemlins/thumb.gif

Hain, you KNOW I'll be there for the pre-party. Both shows too! This is going to be one hell of a night.

My sister is going to be there too. She's moving to Chicago on May 31. Good timing that. :D

graemlins/cry.gif Hain! Lead Synth! My heart is breaking!

Why do I have to be going to a wedding that same weekend! graemlins/cry.gif graemlins/yell.gif graemlins/irked.gif My brother's no less...

Orland/Tinley is more my neck of the woods, so if you need help with any pre-planning! I can be involved that way! smile.gif

You guys are gonna have to party for me too! I think I'm gonna have to take in the Indy show, or travel to another one. Milwaukee or Peoria or even Cinci! graemlins/thumb.gif Still, I'd rather be with you guys! graemlins/yell.gif

what's up with these tix? I thought I heard that THIS was the weekend that ALOT of the summer acts were going to put their tix on sale graemlins/wtf.gif :confused:

RayBan
04.20.02, 06:09 AM
Yeah tix for all the summer shows did go on sale this weekend EXCEPT FOR CHICAGO!!!!
Its not just the Sam and Dave show either I an wanting Rush tix and same deal, every other town but Chicago ARGHH. Maybe all the other shows will sell this weekend and it will be easier to get thru next week to get our tix smile.gif

hain23x
04.20.02, 09:58 AM
well gang, it looks like these tix will be selling fast if you go by what the sales are like for the venues that went on sale today.

If you guys are going to order them online, we should all try to "fish around" for tix close to each other---I gotta be able to turn to someone and slap em' a high 5 when DLR plays "Little Guitars" :D

ps-You can still get Lenny Kravitz tix in the first group of seats still.. did they go on sale this weekend? I'm sure we'll have no problem getting goo tix if you order online.. fuck that phone call shit---they always stick you in the back --just order online AS SOON AS THEY GO ON SALE!!! graemlins/thumb.gif

Tickets for the show go on sale April 27th 10am CST THIS WEEKEND!!! :cool: graemlins/thumb.gif :cool:

hain, where do they go on sale?? I don't see it on ticketmaster graemlins/irked.gif

04.23.02, 09:33 AM
My problem is, do I wait and hope for a New England date and take a chance on it falling apart? Or do I use money I don't have (just bought a house) and fly out to Chicago and stay with my sister and hook up with y'all. And I only have a couple of days to decide.

Anyone gonna get some extra tix to sell?

LA
04.23.02, 09:36 AM
I found a link through the Tweeter Center for buying them:
Tweeter Center, Tinley Park IL (http://www.tweetercenter.com/chicago/schedule.asp)

hain23x
04.23.02, 09:41 AM
but the question is, will we have the same chance at getting tickets thru tweeter center's link as we would thru ticketmaster???

Anyone gonna get some extra tix to sell?They haven't gone on sale yet... but you know, you could make the trip for not so much. Airlines have specials all the time. Check Travelzoo (http://www.travelzoo.com) to find a good deal. You could drive... it's less then one day, and wouldn't cost too much if you didn't have a gas guzzler! graemlins/thumb.gif

I suspect that they'll play the east coast, but you just never know. If they feud, they might not make it that far. :(

If they go on sale this weekend, and they go like the other shows did, I pretty much need to know what I'm going to do this week, in order to get the tix if I'm coming out there. Unless some people here are going to grab some extras figuring either we'll buy them or some friends out there will. Not something I'd do without having a definite person to dump them to, though.

Anyone? :D :D :D
