    I've seen some negative comments from a few people about attendance lately. Personally, I think this tour has been a huge success so far. Granted, some places have been more full than others, but when you consider this is a tour of two lead singers that haven't had a huge hit in years, these are damn good numbers. Do you think Mick Jagger or Robert Plant could ever pull these kinds of numbers without the Stones or Zeppelin? Guess again!!! They'd be playing tiny theatres or opening up for somebody, like Plant's doing right now. Put that into perspective, this has been one hell of a tour and it's proof that a VH reuinion would be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, of all time. Scroll towards the bottom of the page I linked for the numbers.

    Rule #1!

    Look at all the CA$H they are raking in!

    Blows everyone else's (except for Ozzfest) away!
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    By chance, did anyone see the Vanilla Ice listed on there. A reported 51 out of 600 tickets were sold. Made a whopping $629 that night. Must be sad.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    Exactly! When you consider that Ozzfest features every trendy new metal artist under the sun and is a fucking festival, it just adds to the fact that Roth/Hagar truly struck gold with this tour.

    Alpine figures seem low, I don't know the seating capacity, but from my viewpoint, all but the last few rows of seats were filled.
