It looks like the guys are hitting a lot of Hard Rock Cafes...

Sure wish they'd play in the Hard Rock here in their home town! Wink
(maybe they could even get the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit to put up some of their memorabilia!)

You must look into this a bit, but the Romantics might be playing the day of the All-Star Futures game. I believe it will be on Sunday, July 10th. It will be broadcast  on a later date featured on one of the XM satellite radio stations.  I don't know if you must purchase tickets for the event in order to see the show or not, but my guess is more than likely that you would have to.

Two other bands that kinda call Detroit home - Alter Bridge and Taproot - are playing some special WRIF thing. So it seems the event people are going for a Detroit music theme.

So, they're not on the official schedule yet, but should perform before the Futures Game?

the funny thing about this is that i had volunteered to work some all star festivities long before i heard anything about the romantics doing a show.
i get my schedule next thursday but if they are playing, i will be there!
i know the knack are playing a private vip party for the all star game on saturday june 9 and that isn't publicized anyplace.
keeping my fingers crossed! Grin

20 bucks(plus parking....) to hear a a song or two is kinda steep, but I'm thinking about it... why does it seem the Romantics sometimes wait to right before a show to announce the details? Hopefully someone can give us more details soon...!

More than a song or two!  15-30 minutes!  That could be an average of $1 a minute!  Worth it if you ask me!

Plus, you get Uncle Kracker, Mark "the Bird", Mr.Cub, Bo Jackson, Ozzie Smith, many B-List celebrities, and the MLB Future stars!  That's a bargain!

Talking about fixes... My hubby & I drove to Chicago (5 hrs 1-way just to hear the Handcuffs (and Brad!) play for about 1/2 hour... Wink )

I'd like to confirm if they are playing-- I have an event for the Breast Cancer walk early that afternoon and want to see if I can fit their show into my schedule... Smiley

More info, please!  Do we have to purchase baseball tickets?  Are the guys playing during/after the game?  Sorry, been out of the loop for awhile, and would hate to miss the chance to see the boys 'back home'.

even if it's a short set, a little ROMANTICS is better than no ROMANTICS. jez i sound like an optimist, and in this day and age. i'm thankful they're still bestowing us through thier performance  which gives me termendous enjoyment, pleasure and gratification.

The Romantics are probably going to do a set of about 20 minutes and then Mitch Ryder will join them on stage. The Romantics will back up Mitch on a couple of songs, probably "Little Latin Lupe Lu" and "Jenny Take A Ride". Robert Gillespie will play some guitar when Mitch comes out as well.

The set will be about 20-25 minutes long.  Mitch Ryder along with Robert Gillespie and Barry George will join the Romantics for 2-3 songs still to be determined.

You can put your money on the songs I mentioned above. It's been pretty much determined.

Solodka,
Oldfriend has the inside scoop. I'd trust his knowledge of what's going to happen.... Smiley

I've got something going on until 2 pm on Sunday.. Sad
I'm not sure if i have enough time to get to Detroit to see the guys!

I think I will have to move my schedule around a bit!

The old adage comes to mind:

Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.  I believe that is how that one goes.  What songs did the Romantics and Mitch Ryder do?

Exactly the ones I mentioned earlier. "Little Latin Lupe Lu" and "Jenny Take A Ride". Rich played bass on those songs as well.

From my understanding, Mitch Ryder did indeed sing Little Latin Lupe Lu, but Jenny Take A Ride was not performed, much to the chagrin of the audience!  But he did do Devil With A Blue Dress!  And that you could bet money on!  Please don't hate me, I am only the messenger!

I only relayed info I got from one of the Romantics. That is what I was told. Maybe somebody got song titles mixed up.

I couldn't make it that early because I had something else going on. I was originally told that the Romantics would not play until around 7:00, in which case I could have made it, but at 3:00 I was tied up. Next time they are in town I'll be there.
