    Default Do you feel for Buffalo no show

    Back In February 97 Rock in Buffalo started a petition for a Van Halen Show. Do you feel for them?

    And so 97 Rock and its loyal Van Halen fans decided to do something to let the band know that we’re tired of being passed by.

    The first step was to start a petition to let VH know how badly Buffalo wants to see them play here. Next, we sent Jickster out to live in our newly crowned 97 Rock “Halen van” until a promoter gave us the green light for a Van Halen concert.

    On Friday morning, February 15th, Live Nation concert promoter Marcel Timot told 97 Rock live on the air that they had made Van Halen aware of the petition drive in Buffalo and felt good about our city supporting a VH date. Live Nation has made an offer and a concert date will be booked sometime this Spring (which means the show will be HSBC Arena). Marcel thanked the 97 Rock listeners and Jickster for their efforts and will alert us on the actual concert date once all details have been ironed out in the next few weeks.

    I feel bad that the fans in those cities didn't get to see their fav. band come around....but...I don't feel for the city.

    I feel bad for the people in england and Australia who have been waiting for so long to see this band. Seeing them tour knowing they probably won't make the trip over the pond.


    But like I said I don't feel for the actual city....and plus....It's Barfallo. Who feels anything for Barfallo.

    Buffalo got a bad rap for the attendance in 2004 but it was one of the first shows on the schedule but one of the last ones to be announced. I sat in the front row of the 200 level and the building was half empty. They didn't have a chance. I do wonder though if that attendance was factored into the equation when planning this tour.

    Default Buffalo no show.

    I thought this was going to be a Bills Super Bowl thread.

    I feel for any city within three hours of Pittsburgh that didn't get a VH show. Other than that, I could care less about the Sabres, Bills, and the HSBC.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    97Rock in Buffalo has been a big supporter of Van Halen since their 1st tour. They deserved a concert in the city especially when Live Nation confirmed a gig on the radio station's website. It's too bad Buffalo was overlooked because of the band having to take a break and than make up those dates that were postponed. I hope that they acknowledge the fans they have in Western New York in the future, they've earned it.
    Bono Vox: Poetic, Political, extremely generous and just a tiny bit egomaniacal.

    "You know twenty-five years ago, Tony Soprano was driving around Jersey in his iroc-Z just blasting the Van Halen"-David Lee Roth

    "Will there be a Van Halen reunion? “I have hope and faith, and that’s more than just the name of a couple of strippers from Albuquerque” -David Lee Roth

    "This band is three quarters original, one quarter inevitable" -David Lee Roth~2007

    "“We had a lot of fun on the tour – Dave was a blast. And next time we go out, we’re going to have some new stuff, too. I’m looking forward to getting on it. I’ve got tons of music written, such a variety of stuff… Actually, next week or the week after, Wolfie, Alex, and I are gonna start jamming. Maybe we’ll give Dave a call and see what he’s up to.” - Edward Van Halen ~ 2009


    ~Congratulations to 2009 World Series Champions the New York Yankees~
