    Actually, I moved to Michigan in August, but I dont know how to update the location on my profile. I live over in Lansing, MI. I hear there is a rumor they may announce more shows, so if there is one in DC, Ill be at that one as well. But I look forward to a GREAT show, just like Red Rocks!

    I don't know if it'll be RR, I don't think we can generate that kind of feeling in the city of Detroit Setlists in Michigan are usually pretty good though, we usually get some rare stuff. The Comerica shows were great.

    Yeah, those Comerica shows were great!!! As for you guys going to Champaign, there's not a bad seat in the house. Wish I could join ya, even though I don't know who you are and vise versa. Only problem is they don't sell alcohol so take care of that before hand or sneak some of those mini-alcohol bottles in, or both.

    I'd probably hit up the michigan show if it were being played at the palace. the joe louis arena is a p.o.s! I saw Bruce Springsteen there last year for the VFC and the sound was alright, but the place is disgusting!!!!

    Second DMB show and second show this year. Have about a 4-1/2 hr drive. Gonna get a room somewhere close. Don't need a DUI!!! Gonna do some pre-show and after-show partying. Where are the closest bars to the arena?? Anyone going to the MGM Grand??

    Ok, for one, the Joe is not that bad. I would rather have seen them someplace else (Palace, even Van Andel out in Grand Rapids) but I'd much rather see them at the Joe than not at all.

    If you think its that bad, then just don't go.

    hmmm...having been brought up at Alpine, you may not be able to understand. I think this one may be a bit tough for you.

    winter + freezing air + right on Detroit River + absolutely no tailgate scene = tailgate inside at a nice warm local bar. You could pick CoboJoe or the Shillelagh, either will work.

    I'm going to call and make sure the shamrock shuttle is running. They run it for concerts and games, so I don't see why it wouldn't. CoboJoes is cool...sports bar that Wings are sometimes spotted in. Its right across the street from the Joe.

    Not going to go. Just wish they could clean up the place a little bit. From the outside it looks nice and all. But the arena area and the walkways and the bathrooms are horrible. Just stating an opinion.

    No, that's cool that you think the Joe is enough of a dump that you don't want to go. I just can't imagine having the chance to see a DMB show and then thinking...oh wait, that venue sucks, I just can't bring myself to go there, the bathrooms are horrible.

    (you do realize I'm just fucking with you at this point, right? )
