    That's still the most attendance for any Van Halen members past or present this summer

    Funny that FWR! would say that Mike is the big draw when a few days ago he was cryin about how Billy Sheehan would be better than Mike in VH because no one cares about Mike except people here Mike doesn't have any affect on ticket prices, blah blah

    Well which is it, is he a big draw or a non factor?

    Mike would have very little affect on VH ticket prices. But face it, people want to hear Vh music, and VH is not touring, so they come to see the Other Half. Consider that $ammy's last 2 solo albums sold 40,000 copies...not exactly setting the world on fire.

    Cricket Pavilion is an outdoor venue in Phoenix in June. We've been 100+ degrees out for over a month now - not very hospitable for anyone, any time of the day or night. I'd bet that attendance would have been better at some place with air conditioning!
    Nothing to see here.

    Actually, people are going to Sammy concerts to see Sammy. The Other Half is a bonus, not the main draw. They're not lead billing. He really does have a fan base. Amazing, isn't it.

    I went to one of Sammy's shows when he first started his cabo thing and that whole vibe wasn't "it" for me. I really didn't care for the lounge/cabana thing he had going with people partying around him and drinks being served on stage. it was kinda strange, at least to me.

    But if Mikey shows up all bets are off b/c he'd be the main draw for me.

    Not saying he doesn't have a fan base...I used to be one of them. But his last 2 albums sold 40,000 copies each...that speaks for itself.

    Isn't 40K each pretty good in this day and age?

    No...40,000 copies sold is not good. That is why Sam no longer had a record contract and had to search around for someone to release his new cd (Rhino).

    40,000 copies sold is better than the 0 copies sold of new Van Halen albums in the past 8 years.

    40,000 isn't very good, however in this day and age of internet downloads it's hard for people to even go gold anymore.

    Did DLR's "Diamond Dave" album sell anything? (I know of one copy, as I bought it.)

    Fair Warning Rocks, so you are saying Mikey adds 5,000 people to Sammy's shows? Do you realize, no matter how much all of us know Mikey, how many people out there can't name the bass player from Van Halen despite loving their music? You are seriously reaching there. We get it, you don't care much for Sammy on this tour. No need to ruin your credibility.

    Albums and their bulk sales are a dying commodity as it is, much less for solo artists and not top brand names or radio flash-in-the-pan flavors of the month.

    What speaks for itself is the people at the shows. Love 'em or lump 'em, they're mostly Redheads (as opposed to VH fans taking what they can get), and they're a force unto themselves.

    That said, I'm unsure a five hour tequilafest beforehand is a good mix for Sammy cats, if Devore was any indication.

    Make that two. I bought it as well. I thought it stunk and the last I knew ( quite awhile ago) it had sold about 15,000 copies.

    More importantly at the moment, this thread is about Hagar dude.
