    Stage Tix Experiences from this tour?

    I've got stage tix for tonight's show (Houston) and I'm curious as to what to expect this time around. I've got a VH tour poster from FUCK that I'd love for Sam and Mike to sign, but I don't know if there will be an opportunity. I was on stage for Sam's Ten 13 tour, and there was no opportunity then.

    Has anyone here been on stage this tour? I'm wondering what the "surprise goodies" are.

    Never been on stage, but the last time I saw Sam he did stop and sign stuff for the folks when he was up there.

    Dude, I am so jealous. Would love to see Sammy but won't happen this year. Sammy is great about signing stuff. Saw him solo and from the Golden Rings with VH. He signed several items for people including my BOBW cd cover. Oh and Mikey signed TPs breastastist. Anyway, have fun!

    My wife and I were on stage in West Palm Beach on Friday. Great show, lots of fun.

    Sam did not sign anything and truthfully I was a little disappointed. We all shelled out $200 per ticket and stood around like fools outside backstage door while a group wearing meet and greet passes paraded past us. At $200, we should have gotten a bit better treatment or charge an extra couple of bucks and give us meet and greet opportunity.

    That said, the show was great and stage audience all were nice folks.

    Surprised Sammy didn't sign anything...that's a rarity...it's usually a hallmark of his show...

    I've got stage tix for the Scranton show on 7/2. For those who have been onstage, I have a few questions.

    Were there any problems getting your Tix? Did you just show up at will call? Are you free to hang out at the CB Village or do you have to go backstage?

    In most venues, cameras are not allowed, but the Stage tix info. said you can bring them in. Did you hide them or was there no problem?

    For those that plan on consuming some adult beverages, is there any chance of using a restroom at any point, even during the intermission or do we have to cross our legs?

    The one time I did it (a special Q95 anniversary show with Bob and Tom in Indy) you could NOT leave the stage once on it, so make sure you empty before you go back.

    We could hang out and do what we wanted but had to be at a certain door at a certain time and then we went back stage for the meet and greet. There was a group pic with the band and we all got to keep the disposable cameras and use them onstage. I also snuck in another disposable (rather, my wife did) but nobody bothered us while I used it.

    We had no problem at Will Call. Just showed up and got the tix, the armbands, and signed the apporpriate papers.

    They didn't guarantee any autographs but each person at the meet managed to get one thing signed. While onstage Sammy signed everything put in front of his face. During Top Of The World he came into the middle bleachers (where we were) and signed even more stuff.

    You'll have a great time!!

    I have stage tickets for Boise on 08/08, this will be my first time onstage, but a local band, of which I know and was given backstage pass for being a "stagehand", is playing an opening set. So not only will I have the stage tickets but a pass to do all the other backstage things as well. Man August can't get here soon enough.

    I'll be there with ya brotha!

    Plus I have a question. When you arrive there when do you get to go on stage and find out where your standing? I assume it is where ever we want right, like on the risers in the back. I'm askin cause I wanna be on Mikey's side. Was there any trouble in standing where you want.

    I am onstage for the show coming up at meadow brook farm in Gilford NH. I can't wait. I'm thinking about shooting a poison dart into David Lauser so when Sammy says we need a drummer I'll say gee what a coincidence! That would be so much fun to sit in with Mike and Sam. I play in a VH tribute and we cover Roth and Hagar stuff and my singer is going with me. He even looks kind of like Sammy. He has long curly hair and is about the same build. We are going to dress him just like Sammy and freak him out. Should be a fun time as this is my first experience with this.

    Thanks. Should be awesome.

    Has anyone been onstage this tour? Anything else to add?

    To the guy who asked about the camera -- BRING IT IN!!!!

    Everyone on the risers had digital cameras. I took about 135 shots until the battery died and after editing had about 50-70 really cool shots. It is a blast.

    Default on stage

    Just did on stage at pittsburgh. The show was FANTASTIC! But I Hate All Access did a lousy job with us before the show. Basically it was 5 hours of standing in line waiting. You need to go immediately to the booth as soon as you enter to wait in line for your passes. First come first serve. So if you are 20 or so in line you will not be in the front row. Front row is great! That's where we were. But standing in line means you can't go do any activities. Not that those were any good anyway. $200 later you get a shit experience the 5 hours before the show but an ass kickin show!
