    Default Rumor: Van Halen may play corporate gig

    The following is a rumor passed on by Linker frankie1966 regarding the possibility of Van Halen playing a corporate gig Thursday.

    According to frankie, Toronto company Research in Motion may have contracted the band to play the company's annual party event.

    Every year, for the past four years or so, RIM has put on a corporate gig for employees and friends. They've rented various local arenas and booked the BareNaked Ladies, the Tragically Hip, and Aerosmith for private functions.

    It's been confirmed in the local paper (Kitchener Waterloo Record) that RIM has the Air Canada Centre booked for 14,000 of their employees and friends, surprise guest to be announced.

    For what it's worth, there's a full week off in the tour schedule.

    Here's the article: http://news.therecord.com/article/267974

    Take it with a grain of salt. At worst, there's enough meat to the rumor to discuss it.

    it's a private event, there probably won't be tickets sold.

    we had a couple phone calls in but haven't gotten any official word yet.

    I was waiting until somebody said something lol. I know that there hasn't been one thing said in the press about this event here in Toronto...on the radio...on the news...etc. Even on Classic Rock stations they haven't said anything...

    Roth has already done corporate gigs, so it isn't a huge stretch.

    Why would they publicize a private event that non-employees won't have access to?

    I understand why...but Scotty posted an article from the Internet about the gig doing just that....

    I'm not saying advertise it...but they haven't even mentioned it....I assumed because it was really really private...but now that I see this article so it's obviously out there for people to know....

    uuugh.... if any of you want a good laugh at my expense.... *grin*

    i was invited to this gig over a week ago before any postings were anywhere regarding vh.... at the time she didnt even know who it was....

    unfortunately my dear friend who works for RIM out of head office but is the main rep in the southern US is down there right now.... she was / is supposed to be coming home thursday afternoon and then head to the gig from the airport....

    long story short: get a facebook msg. from her an hour ago cursing up a storm about one of their call centres in nashville or some other place causing her to be possibly delayed....

    oh, and.... i quote: "the tickets are in the glove compartment of my car at the airport in toronto"

    *sigh*


    no offense to all right now, but presently i am praying to God that if things stay as they presently are that the two acts end up being celine dion and barbra streisand....

    *snicker*


    and how was YOUR DAY????

    I highly doubt it will be VH at this event. I think they'll be on the plane back to LA right after the MSG show tonight.
