I'll be there  :) . Missed them last summer. All I got was a camera full of pictures from my concert buddy, 3.D. (Detroit Dan's Daughter) Who went without me.  >:(
I was up-north on a canoe trip.

Anyways, I thought I would join in here and see how much posting there is.
Also, I wanted to see if there is a set-list.
Also, I want to know how to get a VIP pass? Who gets them and how? I entered a contest to win them at WCSX but I know I won't win.

Don't give up hope, Bookies and Pinkbubelz seem to always win contests! :)

Well, time is short. I figured If I were to win I would have by now.
I heard that if you test drive a ford at 9 mile & Mac (forgot the dealer) you get VIP tickets. I live on the West side so I might stop in there on the way to the show.

Is there a known Set-list?

You never know what to expect in their own hometown!  If you look at the set lists from the last 2 shows in Santa Cruz, CA, that could probably give you a clue and be about 80% sure of what to expect! :)  Talk to Bookies to see if she is going to this show!  She might have some pull! ;)

Beautiful night!  At least while The Romantics played!  It might have rained earlier in the day and then later on, but when The Romantics played the skies let the sun shine through!
Set List went something like:
Rock You Up
When I Look In Your Eyes
Midnight to Six
61/49
Devil In Me
A Night Like This
Respect
Talking In Your Sleep
Stone Pony
New Kinda Pain
Tomboy
First In Line
She's Got Everything
Gimme One More Chance
What I Like About You

You guys missed a great show, but missed even more if you went to sleep early!  Happened to find out that there was an after party and just by chance, Wally, Mike and one of their former drummer's Johnny B. jammed for about a half an hour!  It was really awesome!  And for Brew, I have to mention that the hula hoop cheerleader's were there!   ;)  If you were able to catch the show, you know what I am talking about!  Anyone who can chain smoke while keeping a hula hoop up at the same time gets a nod from me!  That takes a lot of coordination for sure!  I guess driving a car while talking on the phone, putting your make-up on and drinking coffee at the same time would rank up there too!  
Anyway, I had a chance to meet a few die hard, devoted, long time fans.  One had made her own buttons from old sketches of the guys and made hanging earrings with The Romantics logo on them!  Very cool to have met them and their group and listen to some fabulous stories!

^ Yep. I saw that girl with the earings. She was standing next to us for a while.
And yes it was an Awesome show. My hats off to the sound guy, everything sounded crisp and clear. I got some great pictures.

Note to the band: IT'S TIME FOR A LOCAL INDOOR SHOW.  :)
