    Default When does VH take the stage?

    ...so I can plan my tailgating appropriately. They used to always come on at like 9:20 until the '04 tour when they upped it to like 8:30. And if I remember correctly 8:30 was the time for the '07-'08 tour, too. So is it 8:30 or 9:00/after? Thanks/please.

    Depends on whether they have an opening band or not.

    When they played at the Mohegan Sun, they went on 20 minutes after the time it said on the ticket.

    I'm thinking of skipping Kool and the Gang. I'm sure they are good, but would rather my kids 1st concert be VH, and not Kool and the Gang.

    So what is the best strategery.
    Right here I say....

    Enter the arena at 8:30.

    K & G will go on at the exact starting time listed on the ticket and will last around 45 minutes.

    If your kids hear 4 minutes of "Celebration" I don't think it's the end of the world.

    Between 8:50-55, the house music will go from "You Got Me Rocking" by the Rolling Stones to typical Dave-like music and then you know it's showtime.

    At both Boston & Manchester, it was at 8:55 and the show ran until 10:50. The starts were slightly different though.

    In Boston, the houselights halfway dimmed for a minute to let everyone know that it was time.

    In Manchester, the houselights were still on when the intro hit.

    Thank you all. I think I am gonna catch at least "Celebration" actually. One of the happiest songs ever. Nothin' wrong with Kool--or The Gang for that matter. Wish their popular singer was there though.

    Depends on the length of Wolfie's pre-show dump.

    I've always dreamed that his first 4 minutes of a concert for my son will be "Unchained", NOT "Best of Both Worlds."
