Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
Iím here in Vegas this week. Any chance of getting into this thing? Looks like its a Cisco event.

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
It's a corporate event so probably employees only.

Unless you have a connect at Cisco that can get you in VIP status, there is no reason to try to sneak into an arena for a cookie cutter setlist.

Yes, I got into the Cisco Live! concert effortlessly when it was at Petco Park in San Diego in 2019. I posted about it in the 2022 Tour Rumors thread here: https://antsmarching.org/forum/showp...postcount=3273

If you can't just walk in, hang around outside and get a wristband from someone. Shouldn't take long.

Everyone is VIP at this show. All you can eat and drink for free.

I think I’m going to try and get in.

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
I'm just thinking fans who are able to get into this show will complain about it being "cookie-cutter" despite the sample size of shows of this band doing just that for gigs like this.

dancheatham 06-13-2022 04:24 PM

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
This isn't a true "private corporate gig" like most of the ones the band has played. It's open to all conference attendees ($795-$2795), and attendees can add a guest for the concert ($245). You can probably also just get a wristband from someone as was suggested above.

Sabres914 06-13-2022 06:20 PM

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
Anyone who sneaks in has no right to complain! :lol

Anyway, hopefully someone can report the set and/or grab a set list print.

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
If they get lucky, they might get Crush tonight. That should be your expectation. Its gonna be 90s era classics heavy, but it'll be the radio/music video songs to go with your Space Between, You and Me, Funny, Samurai Cop. Deepest dives could be a Die Trying, #41, Two Step, Warehouse thrown in.

I would hate for it to happen, but they could continue the TD streak with Everyday tonight that would be fit this gig.

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
I'm curious if anyone here knows how the logistics works of getting all the equipment out there. I'd imagine they rent the lighting rigs and speakers but to get the bands instruments/amps etc. would seem difficult coming from the east coast to the west.

They travel with multiple rigs of everything. So if the last show was Bristow, it's logical the Blossom rig would hit Vegas. Or however they have it routed. They do this months and months in advance so it's all seamless.

from looking at the event website it looks like you could only buy a pass via an attendee, curious how Sean did it...

I bought an explorer pass (which gets you into the Live Celebration) and then added a guest pass. It came out to 500/each, but it's probably my only shot to see them this year.

I stopped watching before this song, but I bet it set that crowd into a frenzy and he did some goofy dancing, meaning we'll hear it at Alpine and SPAC.

I do wish they would mix it up a bit ala 2008 with their covers. They played a TON of different covers that tour.

BruceW 06-16-2022 10:19 AM

Re: Las Vegas show 6/15/22?
 
Daveís voice is never on point for it anymore, so itís a moot point. Does the band itself sound good playing it? Sure, but they sound good playing nearly every single song they play ever.

The song takes up a spot that could (read: should) be filled with a DMB song.

Dave loves it, crowd loves it, so itís not going anywhere and my complaints are also moot points.

There are so many shit DMB songs. Would you really rather hear Shake Me because Dave wrote it?

Youre saying Shake Me is better?

Respect your opinion and all but damn, Shake Me is trying to write a sexually suggestive song with the cleverness of Sledgehammer and failing MISERABLY. ďI like my coffee with toast and jelly but Iíd rather be licking you from your back to your belly?Ē ďFuck me like a donkey?Ē Yiiiikes. Iíd be legitimately embarrassed to show someone that song. So fucking bad. Sledgehammer is about a trillion times better.

I think theyíre my two least favorite songs. I actually hate them both equally live. Sledge would be good if it wasnít run into the ground and Dave could actually sing it. And the awkward hand movements throughout? Yeah Iím all set. Shake Me stinks too weíre in agreement there

Wouldn’t hold your breath on any of that.

Still can’t get over how much people let rarity affect their liking of a song. Like, do you actually dislike the song Sledgehammer? Or do you just look at set lists way too often?

Yes.

Looking at setlists or going to more shows does nothing to affect my appreciation for DMBís good original songs or good covers. In fact, it enhances my appreciation for the good stuff, because when something that isnít good is constantly taking away real estate in a show Iím at or not at, I view that as unfortunate and something that I donít like.
