    Default Official Reno Thread

    Interesting how VH picked to the play the smaller Events Center (capacity 7,000) versus the larger Lawlor Events Center (capacity 12,000) for Reno. Seems like this is almost a rehearsal show for the rest of the tour.

    If that's the case, it seems like a reasonably safe way to "test the waters", given whatever medical condition Ed had/has.

    Either that or the other one was booked already. It definitely is a good sign, though!

    Or test fan's reaction to having Dirty Movies, Drop Dead Legs, DOA, and House of Pain added to the set.

    Yes, perhaps.
    Don't go expecting the truck drivers to know anything about the set list though.

    I'm beginning to get the feeling that while this is indeed a tuneup for Vegas, and those two shows will happen, after that, i think it's day by day.

    Would the band not need to do a few rehearsals to get back up to speed, or is Reno the rehearsal?
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    Rush is playing the same venue...maybe the VH and Rush audiences are becoming "more selective."

    Instead of having a private gig to re-warm up for the rescheduled tour, why not charge to have people attend the warm-up show at a smaller venue.

    I was wondering about that as well. Hardly anybody plays at Lawlor anymore. I remember seeing the Diamond One during the Skyscraper tour and he was at Lawlor. They're giving away tix on the radio this week. Boy that sure was short notice for a show. Most shows are announced way in advance. Nothing like VH to announce two weeks in advance.

    BTW:
    The band announced on its site Friday that an April 17th concert at the Reno Events Center has been added, "due to overwhelming fan demand."

    Huh? "overwhelming fan demand?" To sem them play a warm up show so they don't embarrass themselves in Vegas?

    I'd rather hope that they test fans reaction to a new song, now THAT would be exciting.

    They musta got my strongly-worded email.

    I was wondering where the "fan demand" was comin from. Since when does VH ever listen to the fans anyways?
