Well as it would figure things at my job have gone from bad to worse (I will skip the details, to much to list). †Due to this it looks like I won't make the concert this weekend. †It figures. †I have said please come to the PNW, they do, now we can't go. †Being in middle management sucks. † Angry †I guess that is why I am hunting for a better job. † If things change it will be last minute but I doubt it.  We really wanted to see them perform again and perhaps meet up and have a chat with the guys.  Go figure.  Cool

The Romantics at Darrington was awsome, have a few pics (large ones) if anybody wants.  Wish they came to the northwest more often

We got there and set up camp Friday, The Romantics were supposed to play Saturday at 3pm.  Right away there were schedule changes, and Cheap Trick was a no show, very disappointing.   

Saturday went off without a hitch, with Dennis DeYoung finishing up the nite.  Just before him was Lou Gramm of Foreigner.  Iíll bet he never gets asked back to where he plays, he unfortunately sounds terrible.  The Romantics should have had that spot.  When they played it was very hot on the black stage, sun in their eyes, etc.  Every one else was playing in shorts, tanktops etc, but they came out in black leather and woke everybody up.  I have always enjoyed their music, but after this show im actually seriously considering going to Vegas later this month.  It was the highlight of the weekend.  Sunday was nothing but no shows, randy bachman was there but didnt come out due to non-payment, and come to find out cheap trick was a non payment issue as well...or so says the PI...

If they read these threads at all, Id like to say thanks to the Romantics, and hope you guys make it back to Darrington next year, or anywhere in the Pac NW.....we will be there

Wow, what a sucky sounding weekend! †At least you enjoyed the Romantics. †Hopefully they got paid too!!!
Do the promoters plan on refunding folks money? †I would be livid if I spent hard earned money and most of the main acts didnt show up!
You should come to Vegas! †A lot of us message boarders will be plus it will be my birthday so it should be one fun time!!



oh and if we are really lucky, cheap trick will be a no show in rockford too and the romantics will have the entire crowd at their stage!!

It was better than work, but not great.  Funny thing, all these guys were on the radio the day before. Not sure how they cover that kind of ground to get there and not perform because they havent been paid yet, I would have figured they get paid THEN travel, but who knows.

I think, if it is anything like my work, you get paid half up front and the other half the day of the performance. †It would make sense not to give the money out before the job is done, but sometimes you get paid just before or just after the show! Wink

Now that i think about it i believe you are right.  Mark Farner was supposed to play sunday, and from what i heard, he had half, and didnt play.  web site says artists subject to change....but not sure how they are going to handle cancelations all together.....several hours of silence on friday and sunday....not like they had someone else to fill in....there was just nothing going on.

In defense of Cheap Trick...
Sounds like they showed.
Maybe "No Dough" is a better term huh?

yes, they did show, as did everyone that ultimately canceled...it was strictly a poor management thing...no cash to cover the talent....
