    Curious if anyone knows why Chickenfoot didnt play here in STL ?

    Being the new band for Sammy, etc. you would have thought for sure they would have played here.

    Anyone ?

    Only "rumors" as to why they didn't play. If I remember right, the story I was told was that they wanted to play Verizon Wireless. Management at the facility was concerned about the number of tix that would be sold. So, management told 'Foot to sell tix cheap in order to get as many people as possible in the facility. I guess they didn't want to have a show if 7,000 people showed up (and that was their concern). The 'Foot said no. That was the end of it.

    Now, this was only a RUMOR I was told. I was told by a few different folks who do have ties to that venue. But, is it true? I don't necessarily buy it. I think they could have played something like Chaiffetz (sp?) or even The Family Arena in St. Charles if this was truly the case (size and they wouldn't have to worry about management expectations for capacity - I think The Family Arena would let me play if they thought it could generate a quarter - talk about a white elephant). You gotta figure The 'Foot probably wanted to play something bigger than The Fox or Pageant (which is where I saw Hagar the last couple times I've seen him in town) because otherwise that would have been easy to book.

    Extremely disappointed I didn't see them. Have HIGH HOPES for next year (pun intended)!

    Yeah, but "Steak and potatoes, a feather in a bucket" is taken.

    I don't get the "here we go" statement? Nobody's making fun of Sam's lyrics in here
    "I respect that youre passionate about this but what your saying is complete idiocy..." - MF5150 on McDonald's "preying" on young kids.

    "He was born a human, he's a horse's ass by proxy." - It's Mike on Eddymon.

    So Sam solo is a bigger draw in STL than CF?

    Sam solo is one of the bigger draws period here in STL. Although, I don't think it is quite as strong now as it was say 5 to 10 years ago (I think the whole metro has seen him multiple times here now).

    IMO comparing crowd sizes to the reunion tour with VH in '04 versus when he played on his own, the crowds I think were bigger for Sammy on his own. I'd say the same thing compared to the '08 Dave VH show here. Now some may disagree, and I haven't seen "official" numbers. They '04 tour was also hurt by having 2 shows here (that second show maybe had 8,000 tops, upper deck was completely empty and ScottTrade is not masive) and the Eddie "condition" factor.

    That just gives you a bit of an idea. STL is known for being a Sammy town, a Rush town and having a huge Floyd following (Roger Waters is playing The Wall at ScottTrade I believe in the winter here). Not sure if anybody else besides Hannah Montana outdraws these 3 here .

    Note - lyric comment above was a joke. You know how it is around here.
