It's just a wee bit too far for me.  Looks like I'll be moving that weekend.  Brew, aren't you the closest to this one?  Are you going?  Bookies, will you be making the trip?

I'm probably "the closest" but at 5 hours drive, I could almost get to Detroit in that time.    Undecided

Pretty funny, but my husband will be in Wisconsin for 2 1/2 weeks during that time for training on his new job and may go to this show - without me.

Sad  WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Is Rich more or less rejoining the Romantics on a permanent basis?

I heard the Romantics go on at 9 p.m.  Does anyone know if this show is inside or outside, and how much the show is?

Thanks!

it is my understanding that it is a free will donation @ the door.  i hope everyone is very generous!

also, i believe it is held in a bandshell type venue.

I'm sorry to say, but this trip isn't gonna happen for me.  It's just too far and I don't have the time this weekend.  Cry   Sounds like it'll be a blast.   Cry

The band will be in Wisconsin tonight to rehearse, so any of you well connected folks in the area might be able to stop by and give a Big hello! Wait, wrong band, right drummer.

The guys played for a few thousand people and the crowd was very enthusiastic, which is good to hear. There were a few surprises in the set such as opening with "Rock You Up". Rich again played on the 61/49 material as well as the songs he usually plays on. There were some other surprises in the set such as "One In A Million" and "Boom Boom". They also played "I Need You", "Tomboy" "When I Look In Your Eyes", "What I Like About You", and "Talking In Your Sleep" among others and the first encore was "She's Got Everything". The second encore was "I Can Only Give You Everything". The third encore (yes the third encore!) was "Tonight". There is likely another gig at the end of the month somewhere in Canada, but Rich could not remember the specifics. Rich also mentioned a possible gig next month at Comerica Park but he does not think it was for the All Star Game, which would have been really cool. Rich and my family were at one of Rich's brother's house for Fathers Day, and he told me that he slipped my son a cd of a live soundboard recording he recently found after all these years of a show at the Royal Oak Theater around the time of the first album. (I am writing this while they are there and I am at work). Can't wait to get home later and give that show a listen! Rich said that Mike is now playing mostly guitar which really gives the band a real fat live sound. In a nutshell, Rich said the show yesterday went really well and was very well received.

Thanks, oldfriend, for the scoop!  I roamed the site earlier this evening, hoping to hear how last night's show went.  It sounds like quite a good time!  I hope that Rich and the boys will be back in the Detroit area soon.... That would be wonderful!  Grin

In case anyone is interested, here is the song list NOT from the Madison show the other night, but from the Royal Oak Theater show that I mentioned in the above post. It has to be 1980 or 81 at the latest. It must have been an FM simulcast because you can hear Wally saying hello to people in New York and LA. The songs are:
      When I Look In Your Eyes
       Hung On You
       Gimme One More Chance
       Till I See You Again
        Stone Pony
        Keep In Touch
        The Girl Next Door
        Tell It To Carrie
        Little White Lies
        What I Like About You
        Friday Night At The Hideout (Judy Be Mine)-This song was originally done by the Underdogs and was the B side of "The Man In The Glass"
         She's Got Everything
         Hippy Hippy Shake
         The Last Time
I was working on a new live compilation cd from the shows with the other songs that were not on "Meet The Romantics", but I am going to have to revise the song lineup a little and include some of the songs from this show because the sound is excellent and the performance is great. Maybe in time for next Christmas.
