    Default sammy selling out

    living here in toronto, sammy hasn't played here solo in a long time. i saw the acoustic show at the horseshoe tavern when he was promoting marching to mars and another time with the waboritas at the guvernment....both were a blast....dave lovers say what you will but this guy is super talented to have been able to play for as long as he has to big crowds.....i'm very surprised at how well his new solo dates are selling out....he's like a steve miller type of guy now....people come out to see him for the hits and good times, not so much for the new stuff....they're not stadium dates but they're very repectable places.....good on him....wonder what eddie's thinking these days? probably wondering where the corkscrew is. he just seems to have lost the plot since 98.

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought you were going to say that Sammy is selling out as in it's all about $

    Yes, Sammy is selling out his shows, because he puts on a great show and rocks the house. People have great times and he truely tries to make every one of his fans happy. This is why Sammy rules!

    I just wish Sam and the wabos would come some were close to me. Never seen Sam solo before just with VH last year in Tampa.

    Me too, thought oh boy another Dave vs. Sam thread and let the mud-slinging began. As others have said, Sambo is selling out dates b/c people like his show and he cares about his fans and the quality of the show he puts on...

    Thought the same thing when I saw the post title. Another reason he's selling out is that his tickets aren't $100! Paid $45 each for the show at the Borgata in AC. Smaller room than the outside place VH played and it should be a cool show. Looking forward to the party on 5/6. Was just at the Borgata thursday night and left up $1000!!! Sweet.

    Sammy puts on a great show and that's why he sells out. Granted they're not huge arenas but that really isn't his solo style.

    For me, I was always more pro-DLR than pro-Sammy but as I've gotten older, I can relate more to Sammy than I could Dave. Dave is still the best frontman ever but Sammy certainly has done more for the fans lately.

    Sammy = GREAT TIME, with or without =VH=

    However, I would like to see him continue with Ed & Al assuming he gets well 1st, which is the most important thing.

    Its at the Borgata Event Center. Its where Sting and Lenny Kravotz are also playing. It seats 3700.

    Sammy sold out Foxwoods and only single seats are left for Detroit (seats 5,000). These are some bigger theatres that he's playing this time around.

    Yeah to repeat the "I thought this thread was about Sammy selling out" too. But maybe that already happened with the tequila (?). Saw him and his Wabos play here in NV - great shows. Sammy's always #1 with me, that he's with VH (?) only makes it better. He's all about having a good ol' time and having fun with the music. Why can't VH make it fun too and let us in on whaddup??

    Sammy is a great singer. I love Dave albums more, but I can even face that Sam is the only one that can sing now days. And most of his stuff is ok. I'm addicted to that song Feelin' right now. Dave has a lot of problems, and even though I feel he pushed Eddie more to do better, that VH only has room for Sam, or else they're is no VH at this point.
