    Default No name bands added to "FEST"

    With Sammy Hagar & the Wabos, "The Other Half" featuring Sammy & Van Halen Bassist Michael Anthony. AND JUST ADDED: Guitar great Eric Johnson, and a second stage headlined by local favorites Off Broadway and Beatallica (Beatles covers done to the tune of METALLICA).

    Eric Johnson! That's gonna be sweet. And actually, I've listened to Beatallica before, it's pretty interesting. The bottom line is that the Loop dug its own grave when they decided to wrap Loopfest around the already scheduled Sammy show. What good, high profile act would come and OPEN for Sammy? I've got the answer, no one! And I think Eric Johnson is plenty high profile for a gig like this, who did you want, 38 Special?

    That's the only Off-Broadway I know or remember.

    I like Off Broadway. Probably because my dad grew up a big fan and I'm pretty familiar with the music. I look forward to seeing them
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    Well when I buy 6 tickets to Loop "Fest" with more acts to be announced I expected national acts or at least something along the lines of what theyve done in the past. These acts blow and you know it. If youre a fan of Off Broadway than Im happy for you. But I dont remember any of these bands being played on the Loop.


    I dont understand why some here keep saying who would open for Sammy. I really dont get that statement. There are plenty of bands doing small clubs and fairs that are doing alot worse. Im sure Great White would have opened.

    Do you not know who Eric Johnson is? Because he is certainly more high profile than Great White. I think Loopfest is typically a really crappy show. It certainly was the last few yrs. The yr they had Sammy and Journey and Heart and Styx, that was a good lineup. But then they get Tesla as a headliner??? Nobody has listened to Tesla in yrs! The main problem w/making this show Loopfest, was that it wasn't supposed to be Loopfest. This was just a half-assed attempt to wrap Loopfest around an already scheduled Sammy show. I mean, who knows, maybe Loopfest wasn't even going to happen this year.

    No way dude, Tesla's last album (in 2004) was awesome.

    Loopfest actually had some bigger name acts that year along with Tesla; ZZ Top, Blue Oyster Cult and the bullshit Doors with Ian Astbury.


    That show tanked because it was on July 4th, who the hell wants to go to an all day concert on the 4th?

    And that year with Styx and Heart, that one sucked because it was 2 different days. I wanted to see Heart, but I'm not gonna go JUST to see Heart. I went to the Sammy night and then bailed shortly after Journey started, they were pretty bad.

    What do you expect from the Loop though? These are the bands they play on their station (that they can actually afford to do Loopfest), it shouldn't be any surprise. It's not like they are gonna get Metallica or Aerosmith.

    Mikey was on the Loop being interviewed right before 4pm today and of course all I heard was the end of it. The DJ thanked Mikey and stated he had never heard Mikey be so honest in an interview in the last 12 years he has tried to and/or interviewed him. Would of loved to heard it.

    I heard the whole thing, he was talking a lot about the interview in Burnn. He spoke frankly about how Eddie didn't even want him to be part of the reunion, and how he took a pay cut to be part of it. The dj praised him as one of the most down to earth musicians/rock stars out there (I couldn't agree more) and went on about what an important part of the band he is.

    Mikey discussed how he talked w/the =VH= bros about doing a side project yrs ago w/Sammy and Neal Schon, and that they gave him their blessing, then shortly after changed their mind and were enraged when he went out on the Sam and Dave tour. He went on to say that he's tired of telling everyone that =VH= is on a hiatus, when in fact nothing at all is happening w/=VH=, and nothing has been happening in any way, shape, or form, since the 2004 tour ended. He just said he wants to get out and play some music and have some fun, and that's what he is doing right now w/Sammy. Basically, he said he is in the woods just as much as any of us are as to whether or not there will ever be another =VH= reunion.

    WHy is it a scam dude? Sammy and Mikey AND Eric Johnson is a scam? What did you pay for the E-bay bound tix and why are you selling them? Maybe you paid too much for what you wanted....what exactly do you expect now-days without knowing the fest bands beforehand?
    Just go for it!
