    No idea why the mods have stopped doing them .. an oversight presumably.

    Kind of a dud?

    I find the lack of interest on the tour here kinda weird. The years must have taken its toll. The shows are selling well as far as I can tell, but the response here has been slow or almost non existent. The 07/08 tour seemed to generate a lot more interest here if I recall it correctly. Don't get me wrong, the die hards are here and somewhat excited, but the overall mood doesn't fit the scenario. I mean, a great new album with DLR after 28 years and a supporting tour and the show threads are skimpy IMO. The album has failed to make a huge impact and most shows have seats available. It's dissappointing as a fan. I liked the stuff Dave did to promote the album on the Internet early on, but I wanted TV appearances and all the bells and whistles after all this time. Oh well, it is what it is.
    What are your major influences?

    The moderators are human too, of course, and maybe it's just been an oversight.

    I check this forum everyday for new tour threads... Do others do the same? I'd love to continue to see tour threads for each stop.

    I find this tour ESPECIALLY fun to read about, given the 'wildcard' element of song selection.

    Personal observation re: this tour: I noticed (via YouTube) that VH really hit a groove during this tour, starting on the 2nd night of MSG in NYC and running through their gig in Montreal... They were at their peak during those gigs... Atlantic City and Reading also seemed to be very good (judging by YouTube.)

    Yup.

    I'm still expecting them to bring in (and probably out again) some new stuff. They've soundchecked Light Up The Sky and Drop Dead Legs, amongst other things.

    I hope it continues. I enjoy them. It's the first thing I look at and really the main reason I visit so often...ADKOT and keeping up on the tour! Maybe that's why it stopped...they want us to go away. lol

    Those guys (mods) have lives. It's not the end of the world.

    No reason people can't just start their own review threads.

    It may not be "sticky" but who cares?

    Is there a show tonight? Someone start a thread.

    I've just been busy and when I do them it's a whole day thing with getting the set list, etc.

    I kinda burned out on it. I'll try to start doing them again. Didn't seem like people cared too much about them, some of them had very little in them.

    The tour threads were my favorite way to start the day. I think if you just create one official thread for each show, the folks who attend will create all the content - setlist, reviews, photos etc.

    I know that's not as clean as having 3 threads for each show with a setlist on page one, but it's a whole lot less work for you.

    A lot of us do care, and we also totally appreciate all your efforts.

    +1 A single sticky for each show with a setlist in the first post, and where everyone can post reviews, pics and vids, and even discussion from those who did not attend would be fine. At least everything is still in a single thread, and with so many shows remaining the threads for each show won't become very long. With three threads for each show, it was most definitely appreciated, but there is a good bit of duplication between the threads. Please don't move the thread started by one of the members up to a sticky as he began that thread with a disparaging remark.

    ps- Brett I see you have created the sticky, great man.

    I agree. I've always thought three threads for each show was overkill and simply made it disjointed especially considering nobody could follow the rules. One thread per show would be more tidy and economic.
