    Default Is The Tour Doing Well?

    Can people who've been to any of the shows so far say how full the venues have been? Looking at a few shows being cancelled so far, the incredibly great seats available on Ticketmaster for upcoming shows and reports that some earlier shows like Devore were barely 1/4th sold it seems this tour isn't doing so hot.

    I was searching for concert attendance figures yesterday and could not find any. My bet is the tour is not selling well. Let's face it...anything Sam or Dave does outside of VH is not going to draw very many fans. Their solo careers are over.

    I'll agree with Dave but not Sam. Hagar did sell out both times he came to the Detroit arena in 2005. Granted, the Fox Theatre holds 5,000 people but DTE holds 15,000+ and he sold out. As far as Dave playing DTE, I went to Ticketmaster this morning with no line and got good seats...we'll see how he does. I think what makes Hagar the attractive package is the amount of time his shows are and the ticket prices.

    I tried to get tickets for Tampa tonight and couldn't. They were sold out. Only thing I could find were scalpers asking over $600 a ticket. That sounds like they are doing well at least here in the Tampa area.

    LOL, Devore was full. The lawn area wasn't shoulder to shoulder, but the all the loge were. It was surely 10k strong.

    Hate to disagree with you man, but you could not be more wrong. Every Sammy show I've been to since MTM in '97 has been packed. By contrast, I've seen a couple of Dave shows in the past few years and they haven't exactly been wall-to-wall. "Their solo careers are over", I hardly think so.

    I haven't seen anything on shows that were 1/4 sold, but I might have missed that review. I'd say any show in the 7,000-10,000 range is a good seller in this day and time for Sammy or Dave. Even Van Halen in 2004 weren't selling shows out.

    I know Atlanta was cancelled probably due to low ticket sales, but shows in Atlanta don't do well unless you are U2 or someone on that scale.

    Default WEST PALM 6/16

    I went to the show last night in WEST PALM and it was a late crowd but
    a good crowd...about 11K or so. Ohh by the way, GOOD ENOUGH live is just awesome. Too bad VH never played it live outside of the 5150 tour...DAMMIT!!

    A little self centered there, Hagar? Who wants to stare at you sitting on a beach for 3 hours before the show starts?

    That would be the Sammy Hagar fans who came to the Sammy Hagar concert........to see Sammy Hagar.

    I would expect good crowds in California...there has always been strong support for rock concerts there. The Scorpions, for instance, are playing a grand total of 3 concerts in the US this summer...2 of them are in Calf and 1 in Vegas. But what about outside of Calf? What about the cancelled shows in the South? I know the last time Sam played my area (in 2002 with DLR) they were giving away hundreds of tickets and the crowd was very small.
