    Default New Date Announced

    Anyone notice that they announced a new date? Thursday April 17 in Reno, NV. Maybe they wanted a warm up for the Tiger thing. I would have to guess this a good sign; adding shows as opposed to postponing. Either way, I'm going to take it as great fucking news and talk myself into thinking that everything is gonna work out. I still want my St. Louis show from October.

    I told myself I wasn't going to go see this tour because of travel and price unless they came to Reno.

    So...here I go!!

    I'm going to be purchasing the $49.50 seats because we're hardcore strapped for cash right now.

    This is great news ! I expect the last leg of this tour to be great like most of the first legs.

    They probably want to have one show before TigerJam for warm-up, I wonder also if there may be the possibility they have mixed up the set-list a bit and they want to try it out first in Reno ?

    I'm thinking/hoping the same thing. I'd love to see Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love close the show as opposed to Jump. I'd love it if they dropped Jump all together. What if they mixed in Girl Gone Bad or Take Your Whiskey Home or anything new for that matter; now I'm getting all jacked up again.

    They won't mix anything up. It's amazing people still think they will or hold on to some false hope that the band will do anything different. They'll be lucky to knock out the 20 songs they DO know, much less add anything different. Believe me, I've been pulling for Hear About it Later and Girl Gone Bad since September but long ago gave up. I just hope they make it to St. Louis.

    I am thrilled to have seen 3 shows already and that the tour is still going to continue !

    But nothing wrong with hoping they mix it up a bit , especially for those of us who have seen multiple shows. Just change 2 or 3 songs every now and again, that would be perfect for me. That really is not asking too much.

    Hack: I think we'll be getting our St. Louis show. It's only 4 (now 5) shows into the new schedule. I'm getting pretty excited. A long time coming for St. Louis.

    It's about time!(pun intended)

    Wow! It's been 16 years since these guys were last in Reno and I'm certainly ready. They put on a fantastic show in Sac snd I won't miss this one. So...who's up for a VH pre-show party?!! C'mon guys and/or gals, don't disappoint me. ;-)
    I know what you're thinkin'...

    Just like I was holding onto hope for One Fire. Its not like this is a new thing though, a lot of bands tend to stay with their setlists through an entire tour, not like VH really shook the setlist in 1984 up either. From what I gather, Leppard is using the same setlist from early 07 now. Its not right, but it is what it is.

    This IS GREAT news!!!! I'm seeing this as a good sign ... hopefully a fresh start to the last leg ... but I wouldn't hold your breath on a setlist change ... but it would be nice if they did switch things up a bit ... Let's just keep our fingers crossed ... the glass is still half full ...
