    Default Official CT show

    A friend of mine emailed Jim Koplik and he emailed him back saying that the CT show will definitely be at Mohegan Sun and it will be "early November." As of right now they have a show on 11/3 (NJ) and the next listed show is 11/13 (NY) so ya gotta figure it'll be sandwiched somewhere between those dates.

    Very cool Jimmy. I was wondering the same thing. I know a few weeks ago Jim Koplik had said on Mike Korolys show on wccc that it would happen. Now I don't have to worry about getting tickets for NY, NJ or Boston.

    I had a feeling it would be between 11/3 and 11/13. Hopefully, they let us know soon.

    I'd rather the show be in Hartford but Mohegan is fine too.

    Well they're in Boston on 10/30 so it can just as easily fall between then and 11/3.

    Yeah, I'd definitely prefer Hartford too, but what the hell can we do?
    I'm sure the announcement will be real soon.

    That's great and thanks for the info, hope it's true... It is a much easier drive for me going to Mohegan than going into Boston, so we'd definitely hit that stop instead.

    You know what a show at Mohegan Sun means, right?

    It means about 1/3 of the set list will be cut in order to keep the show short. The casino wants you gambling, not watching a Van Halen concert.

    I saw Sammy there in 2006. About 5 songs were dropped from the set list.

    I was at the same Sammy show. I didn't think he dropped 5 songs. That seems like a lot. VH is not going to cut 1/3 of the show. That's ridiculous. So the show will be 40 minutes shorter than other shows?

    Of course the casino wants you gambling, but they're open all night. That's plenty of time for you to lose your money to them. The fact that you have to walk through the casino to get to (and leave) the show is enough of a temptation for them to reel you in.

    Well I've seen plenty of shows at Mohegan Sun and shows never seemed to be cut short. I've seen some bands like Bowie and Yes play for over 2 hours.
    On a side note on WCCC today Jim Koplik of Live Nation said for all the CT fans to save your gas money because Van Halen will be here in early november.

    If you want to hear about Van Halen coming to CT click the link to the WCCC show 6 Concert Questions with Karolyi and Koplik and they go right into the Van Halen Press conference and that the show should be coming to CT. They also talk about Ozzfest. Its a good listen. Here is the link. Just hit the mp3 button to the right and it will start to play on WCCC site.

    Thanks, OLO

    Thanks, tsingleguy for posting that Koplik interview. Koplik also pointed out the huge window of available dates between 11/3 and 11/13. Still waiting here in CT....
