    Default St Louis NOCALL

    I've seen the majority of my VH shows in the past decades in ST Louis. I REALLY don't want to believe that St Louis was left off because of Sammy. I'm hoping they will add it later. Someone mentioned that ST Louis was hard to deal with regarding the booking/venues. I know Bob Seger's current tour was booked all around ST Louis but didn't include it until way later?

    Anyone know what up???

    This is a total bummer. I've got to think there will be a second leg with St. Louis on it. They played 2 shows here in 2004 and played to a practically sold out crowd in 2008---after cancelling on us twice. I'm pretty upset, but I may just have to bite the bullet and travel to KC or Chicago for one of those shows and hope they come to St. Louis later on.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    STL loves Halen !!

    KSHE has played them, and supported them for years.

    You can be sure they are going to do a second leg and hit a lot of other markets.

    I've heard of the issues with booking here in STL, and for a long time. Seems like this happens a lot. Gotta be second or third leg all the time. Part of me wonders about the Sammy connection, but at the same time, I also know the craziness over Sammy here seems to have subsided a little bit. I've heard from some Riverport management, that they are no longer all that enthralled with Sammy shows there because they have not made the boat loads of cash on his shows in recent years (last couple of Riverport shows haven't sold as well, tons of discounted tix, free tix to groups, etc.). Not to put a damper on Sammy here (I've been to Cabo multiple times, so definitely not a Sammy hater here). 2012 will be interesting on that front knowing that CF is suppose to do much larger scale shows over the summer. We'll see if Riverport is a part of that equation (because I'm told, unless they try to hit it with a much bigger band in toe, that won't happen at their venue).

    I just hope VH do a second leg show here. It honestly makes little sense to not hit STL since they are all around the area. Just looking at it from a "money to put on a show" standpoint with travel expenses. A lot more costly NOT to play here since they are in Indy, Chicago (2 different times? weird), KC, Nashville, etc. At the same time, I don't see a Memphis show either, which is also in the area. But I do see they REALLY bounce around a lot if you look at city order (they jump from PA to IL and OK to WA).

    My bro and I are talking about road trips (KC or CHI), but step-kids college tuition coming due, so it may have to wait until they come to STL.

    Who knows? Have to admit though, Van Halen in the summer time cannot be beat. We need to all meet up at the closest drinking establishment before the show. Would like to meet some of you guys here. First one is on me!

    Fucking A!

    That made my day

    Hopefully it gets announced "officially" soon here on local radio and the like. I always get a little worried when I only see it on one website--even if that is where one buys tickets.

    Looks like I'm going to have to take 4/30 off of work
