I went to the 1st Chicago show and it completely rocked! It was great to see Eddie and the boys jam all night and have a great time together.
Eddie had a few gear problems but it all worked out fine IMO.
Anyone else go to this show??? Tell me what you thought of the show. :thumb:

That was my Chicago show, too! Really great! (Although I wish I had a better seat!) The equipment malfuntion sucked, but it was still a great show!

Hey guys - I was there too. Outstanding show gear problems notwithstanding. Hey, that's too many big words for me after too many beers!!

I was at the second show in Chicago, in the Golden Ring for the second time. It was awesome! I hope they keep the Rings forever, but I'm sure they won't. IF we ever see them again, but let's not get into that now.

I had made hemp bracelets for the boys in Grand Rapids, MI, and Mike and Sammy wore theirs. For the Chicago show I made the same ones and when I handed one up to Mike, he looked at it, then looked at me, and said, "Hey! What's up!?" I was SO excited that he remembered me! Later he gave me his beer. I still have the Solo cup today! LOL

Sammy wore his bracelet too. I have some pics from cjvanhalen, I think it was. Hopefully this link is still active:


Yep, it is. Just type in cjvanhalen to see all the pictures.

Who else saw last years Chicago show. It rocked. Yet it was a disappointment that eddies guitars were messed up toward the end, and we had ta wait 5 minutes each time they messed up. Still, who saw the show? what did ya think of it?

I saw the second night, which involved less guitar trouble! I liked the show, it was fun. I still go back and listen to the audio bootleg of it.

I was at both Chicago shows as well. Did the 5* on night 2. Both shows were an absolute blast, but I was getting pretty pissed the first night when Eddie was having guitar troubles. But overall, two great shows. I met a lot of cool people at the 5* and had the time of my life! :thumb:

Second show was better than the first but I got goosebumps on the first night when Jump started. It seems like a lifetime ago, already.
