Dang, I was strongly considering the Mohegan show, but didn't make it.  Did anyone?

Bookies,
I noticed on the Romanticsdetroit web site that the Romantics are scheduled to perform in Las Vegas on 06/19/08 in the House of Blues.  Is this accurate.  Please let me know.  Thank you.

Anyone else coming down for the show in Solana Beach on Saturday the 7th?. I'm pretty spoiled, has to be at least my 5th Romantics show in the last two years. They have been very good to Southern California.

Rob,
It's good to hear you are going to this show.  I was hoping Pirate might also say he is attending, as San Diego is so close to LA.  I plan to go see the Romantics in Santa Cruz  on June 20, and their show in Las Vegas in August.  Have a great time at the show and give us a review.  dennis

dennis, i normally dont travel to san diego for shows. even though san diego isnt that long of a distance its roughy 4 hours round trip just in driving. then with a concert makes it 5 to 6 hours. a lil tough to pull off right now. now if i was still in colorado springs i would for sure be there. im glad to hear there stopping by there, so so cool. hopefully they will get some free time and catch some of the gorgous sites there and landmarks. wish i was still there.

Shoot, if you add the price of gas, that would make for 1 expensive road trip! :-) One of these days, Pirate, maybe we'll be able to pull off some kind of fan reunion in Vegas... Wouldn't that be fun?!

I seem to have had conflicts for every show this season, due to my hubby's band, Ask Alice!!

The closest one to me that I might have the possibility of making is the one on July 18th in Auburn, MI

Anyone planning to go to this show?

So my son and I were driving home this past weekend from Missouri to San Diego, after visiting grandpa in Missouri.   I pulled off the Interstate in Oklahoma,  to get gas, and all of a sudden I see a giant Romantics picture lit up on a giant sign. It turns out it was the sign for The Cherokee Casino near Tulsa Oklahoma, advertising The Romantics upcoming show.  I thought it was sort of weird...I mean, what are the chances??

That means that you are going to have to drive back there for the concert!  Did you take a photo of the billboard?  That would have been cool to share if you did! ;)

It actually looked like a really nice place. I tried to take a picture with my cell phone camera but it didn't turn out.

Wah!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe I've missed every show on this list. :-(  Work is getting in the way of my Romantics fan-ship.... I need to change that!!!

Any news on other upcoming shows this year?  I miss everyone....

I too will probably not be able to attend this concert, even though it is temptingly close (and yet sooo far).

New Years Eve with Terri Nunn, hmmmmm I know where I would be, if I wasn't married, and didn't live so far away from the show, and had plenty of room on the Plastic for a ticket to fly. Well, there is always next life, wait I don't believe in reincarnation. DANG!

If anybody goes, enjoy and from personal experience the best band of the night will have four guys dressed in black leather!

GOSH TIME GOES BY, I DONT THINK I HAVE BEEN TO THE SITE FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS. LOOKS LIKE 2009 IS SORT OF QUIET. ARE THERE ANY RUMORS OF ANY UP AND COMING ACTIVITY? HOPE THEY HAVE SOME NEW MATERIAL COMING OUT IN THE FUTURE.

Hi Pirate!
I've heard through the grapevine that there might be some shows brewing for the summer... :-)
The economy sucks so bad right now, that lots of venues and fairs are scaling back..... :-(

Let's keep our fingers crossed!

2008 was a busy year for me and I didn't get out to see the guys play...I need my Romantics fix!!!
