details are still trickling in for this show!
i am trying desperately to get the ticket information.
i know when i tried to purchase the SRO tickets for $20, there were none but that is for the celebrity softball game.  this show may be a separate event.  will post for everyone as soon as i know something.

They will be playing at the Pepsi Court in right field not on the field, but in the stands.
According to the folks at XM, you must have a ticket to the Futures game to be admitted.

Well it appears all the cheap seats/standing room are sold out... I'm not all excited to pay 50+ bucks(I'm not even a big fan of baseball so I most likely wouldn't stay for the game)...  Sad   Maybe they will release more tickets, but a few people I talked to doubted that.  Man I would love to go, espically since the last show in Detroit was not all ages!

Hi bookies.  I'd like to go, but just don't know if I can!  Can we get any more details, please? Trying to get ready for the 3 day walk next weekend.

Thanks.

Imk, no offense  but what more details do you need? At 3pm inside Comerica Park the Romantics will play for about 20/25 mins. and do a few songs with Mitch Ryder and some other guitarist will join them. You need tickets to get in, but its not a private party - the public can buy tickets(or in this case talk to the people on the message board...). I hope that help... hopefully you can come and rock with the guys!

So...
What's the verdict?
Who will be going?

Andrew, it's Lmk, not Imk.   Wink 

I'll be doing a training walk in the morning, and just didn't want to shell out $20 to park and another $20 to see the guys for a short set.  Bookies, if there are any comp tix left, let me know.  I'd love to see the guys again, but am also not thrilled about driving downtown by myself that day.

the pepsi porch is located in right field and it appears to be on the second level.
it is best to enter through gate B which is on the corner of adams and witherell.
for those of you meeting me at will call, it is located on witherell just off of adams between gates A & B.
see you all there!!

That was a fun show, even if it was a short one!  It was SO hot, though, and I felt bad for the guys wearing black leather.  I will say that everyone looked great and sounded really tight. 

I really needed this Romantics fix this weekend, so thank you, guys, for coming back home.  Grin

Details....It was HOT, for one thing!  Wink  All of the guys looked great, and I love Rich's new haircut.  Glad to see him on stage again.  I think the guys did 5 songs, then Mitch Ryder did two songs with the guys and Robert Gillespie backing him up. 
Where we were at (sides of stage), there seemed to be a lot of Romantics family members and friends in attendance.  Very casual, fun, fast paced, short gig.

Don't remember the set list (maybe it was the heat), but know they played 61/49, Tomboy, She's Got Everything, What I Like About You.  I know I'm missing at least one song.  It was fun and nice to see the message board people again (Judy, Andrew, Iris).

I know, I know.....the walk of shame for me.
I really could not have been any closer!

I had to go with my original plan of seeing the Goo Goo Dolls at the pga show.  I was given passes and I promised a 14 yr old.  Not to mention, I like their music as well.

I WILL see a Romantics show dammit.

yeah, yeah, insert your "barbie dolls" comments here......I love their stuff, I can take it!  There is just so much more to them than soundtrack hits! haha

OIAM!!!  Do you know how long I have waited for The Romantics to be that close to me? ! ? !  I will forgive you for not going this time, but only because you promised a 14 year old. Smiley
