    Default 2006 BIRTHDAY BASH NEWS

    September 28, 2006
    BIRTHDAY BASH - WABOTHON*

    *OK* Redheads!
    It's that time of year when we all take off our shoes and get our feet
    in the sand...Yep, it's just a few days away! This year we will have shows
    on the 6th, 7th, 9th, 12th & 13th!! As you all know it keeps getting
    harder and harder to accomodate all of you in the club, so I have been thinking really hard on this one....and here is my solution!!!

    Shows will be on the 6th, 7th, 9th, 12th and on the 13th, I have
    decided....are you sitting down for this one.....I will be doing the
    WABOTHON!!!! A noon to midnight *ULTIMATE B-Day PARTY!!!....*I'm
    thinking five separate shows...*ARE WE HAVIN ANY FUN YET*!!.....

    Here is how it will work..

    Wristbands will be handed out as usual for all shows on a first come
    first serve basis! BUT on the 13th, you will have a choice of which show you
    will attend until all shows are sold out! *ALL* details on show times will
    be posted at the club and as always we will have a limited number of
    dinner show tickets available(well, on the 13th it will be breakfast, lunch,
    dinner, midnight snack.....you get my drift!.... And as usual all shows
    are free on a first come first serve basis!!

    Yippie--MAS TEQUILA!!!
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    It's nice that he does this every year for his fans and I know people travel some insane distances around the world to attend, but man I wish he'd just get onto a world tour once in a while, we had one brief gig here in the UK (which was badly advertised so I missed it, f/k!) in what a decade or more?

    My hunch is Hagar isn't going to go out and bust his ass on a world tour when he knows he won't be able to put asses in the seats. His touring schedule now is pretty light (a few months at a time, at most) and he's not exactly a big draw here in America. I love the guy, and go see him, but let's face it -- he doesn't draw but for a few locations. I don't think there would be a helluva lot of interest (from the money people) to back a Hagar tour in Europe for just a few hundred or maybe a couple thousand people to show up.
    Something I've always been curious about was Van Halen's strategy with Hagar. I'm assuming it was Ed Leffler more than anybody else's strategy (to milk America for all it was worth), but it doesn't seem to me Van Halen toured the world hard in their time, and I'm sure it cost them fans. They did seem to go across the pond much more frequently with Dave.
    Does anybody agree with me here? I've always wondered why VH with Hagar wasn't a world-wide headline touring act. I know they hit Japan and I think Australia and then opened some fesitval dates in Europe for Bon Jovi on the Balance tour. But they by no means set out on a mission to conquer the world. Seems shortsighted to me. Maybe they didn't care, but long term I think Bon Jovi's willingness to tour the world when they were hot basically pulled them through the 1990's grunge phase.
    I never heard squat (or very little) about Bon Jovi during the 90's, but I remember seeing a dvd of them overseas selling out Wembley Stadium in like 1995. I know BJ toured like hell during the 80's across the world, and I'm guessing it was a place for them to exploit when they were on the outs in the USA.
    It seems to me Van Halen squandered this same opportunity (of course this would assume they'd have not split in 1996, but still they couldn't have known that in the 1980's).

    Van Halen has only toured Australia once & that was with Gary Cherone.

    Sammy toured here for the first time as a solo act about a month after the VH shows. It is also the only time Sammy toured Australia.

    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Hey belikemike, yeah I know where you're coming from, but at the same time I remember reading/seeing/hearing interviews over here from the 80's where he'd be raving about how intense the smaller venues were here and how packed out they'd be. He is at the end of the day an international artist, it's not like his stuff is only being sold in the US - unless you count the tequila that is, I've had 1 bottle in my life and only because a friend took a holiday to the US and brought me one back, thank God he grabbed the Anejo!!

    First- Nice to see Red Voodoo on the list. I don't know why but I like that song.

    Good point but don't forget Sam IS the money man now. Cabo Wabo Tequila sponsors the shows. I agree he isn't going to do it to play big venues but if the marketing plans call for mas tequila consumption in Europe he will go.

    Yes, this is true. If he gets his tequilla abroad and it takes off he'll go. But not until. You are right, he is the money man now, but he's also not a dumb money man. He's not gonna just piss away money for nothing (at least from the evidence we have).
