    Default Four Decades of Rock: Toronto

    Maybe I am out of the loop but until my wife sent me a link to the Amex Front of the Line pre-sale I had no idea Sammy was playing the Molson Amphitheatre on August 27th. Featuring Michael Anthony with special guest Kim Mitchell. Anybody hitting up this show?

    No kidding. Same here. My wife scooped me on this one as well. She heard about it on Q. I don't listen to the radio. I've heard Baracuda too many times... Anyhow, I haven't seen Hagar since Chickenfoot I so I'm in.

    I came to the Links thinking I would see a thread about this mini-tour. Pre-sale for Toronto in 2 minutes. Amex and also a Sammy fan club sale using the usual password "REDHEAD"

    Not gonna lie....if it was Sammy and the Wabos I would be taking a pass. It was the Mike factor and the Kim Mitchell opening that made it for me.

    I got a little antsy as I tend to do getting a ticket. When row 10 in the middle was offered, I grabbed it. Then I made that mistake of doing another search to see what was offered and row 3 came up. LOL! Figures.

    for me it would be completely the Mike factor. I've seen Sammy solo enough times, good show but not 100+ bucks plus good to see basically the same show i saw at Rama.

    Exactly. I don't need to see Mona again either!

    It is a pretty unique approach with the Montrose/Solo stuff/Van Halen/Chickenfoot set-list. Hopefully no Eagles Fly.

    I have been to the top of the mountain - met Sammy, pics, high-fives, etc. I will be at the Toronto show because "there is nothing like Van Halen [Hagar] at the Molson." That, and the only time I have ever been 86'ed from a bar was Jack Astor's downtown.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    First Dugie sighting of the night. Glad to see Mikey's attendance in Toronto is official. Although the amps kinda gave it away too.

    I went - it was good, not great.

    He played all the tunes you'd think he'd play - with the exception of Chickenfoot!! Not a single tune from them!

    Mikey showed up and the crowd went wild - I was actually a bit caught off guard by the reaction - but pleased / happy for Mike; he was really gracious about the response.

    The band itself was tight - Vic continues to be a great guitarist. Sammy was his usually energetic self. But to me - the highlight was Mike. Some weird observations:

    - Sammy said he's wanted to come back to Toronto to play - but needed to be invited (maybe I don't understand how the concert scene works)...if promoters are paying attention - basically the Molson Ampitheater was packed up to the lawn seats (which is good as it poured yesterday). And that was with basically no promotion...so - I think they made money / should bring him back.
    - No Chickenfoot?? Really Sam?? Over 1/2 million sold on the first CD and not a single tune?
    - Sam didn't interact w/ the audience enough; it was straight balls out rock. However, it would have been good to hear a few stories along the way. He did the customary 'you're awesome'...'louder!'.....' are you having fun' stuff - but I wanted to hear more from him..a brief summary of that decade / whatever.

    Song highlights for me...Mas Tequila, Eagles Fly, Three Lock Box, Why Can't this be love....He did a version of Right Now that I didn't care for....also, nothing from Balance and he didn't play Dream (which I've heard him call is favorite tune from VH). He did Knockdown it was ok, and another one from his new CD (Ford&Chevy's or something like that)...it was ok as well.

    Laugh all you want about Kim Mitchell - the guy is fucking awesome. I haven't heard one of his tunes in 15 years - but I knew the words to every song! I'd forgotten what a great guitarist he is. Good choice for an opening act!
