    Default Only 4 out of 24 shows on sale are sold out?

    I guess we can safely say that VH with Roth is not a stadium act. M. Anthony's Army has spoken. 10-20K per market. There are plenty of seats left for most shows outside of Boston, Charlotte and Toronto. Mohegan Sun Arena only holds 8K or so and you can still buy seats near the stage. Not a blockbuster but not bad.

    Default A lot of reunion acts are hurting

    The Police and The Who did pretty well. But I went to Genesis in Pittsburgh and was able to get 10th row for 1/2 price. I think that fall is a bad time for tours. Plus, high tickets prices in a somehwat soft economy may be deterring the casual fan from coming out.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    I hear ya, that is the way to go for any concert and what I will be doing for the VH shows in New England. 1/2 price will be a sure thing for these shows.

    I think they waited 10 years too late. Mike not being there is an issue, but I think they just waited too long.

    You can also count Washington D.C., Phoenix, San Diego and Seattle as sell outs at the current time. This tour is selling fine. Sammy Hagar's tour opener here in Biloxi isn't even sold out at the Beau Rivage, which is a 1,500 seat venue. You can get 12 tix in a row (ticket max).

    I really doubt that the absence of Michael Anthony has that big of an impact on how this tour sells.

    Despite the improvements in the VH's PR, it was still weak. They should've been setting up radio stations with tips, they should have performed at the press conference, which should have been held in a bigger spot. Mike should have been a part of it (not that it makes a huge deal in terms of sales, I'm just bitter so ignore this part).

    And again, as mentioned earlier reunion acts aren't selling like mad.
