This FREE concert series will feature all-star lineups of classic rock headliners, OverEasy favorites and Motor City Blues Project veterans every Friday night on the Riverfront Plaza from 8 to 10 p.m., beginning June 16 and running through August 18.

Admission is free and no tickets are necessary. Convenient parking is available for $10 per vehicle at the surface lot at the intersection of St. Antoine and Atwater, adjacent to the GM Renaissance Center.

Viewing space for the concert will be on a first-come, first-served basis and people are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and blankets. Boaters on the Detroit River are invited to anchor near the riverfront and enjoy the view of the stage from the water.

Beer, wine and a variety of food concessions will be available at several locations on the plaza. Outside food, beverages or coolers are not permitted.

This will be broadcast live with Steve Kostan!

Kick A**!!   Wink  Saw the mention of this in the Detroit Free Press yesterday, with a nice pic of the Romantics (sans Brad, unfortunately).  Can't wait to see the guys play locally again.

If you don't want to pay for parking, go to the Greektown Casino Parking Deck and get it validated inside the casino for free! Smiley

The Ren Cen is only about 4 blocks from the casino OR you can take the People Mover ($1 for a Round trip ride).

Hey Bookies & Solodka,
Any word as to whether there will be a meet & greet for some of the fans afterwards? Do you know if it's inside the Ren Cen, or on the pavement outside? From what I saw at the Ren Cen during my walk on Monday Night, It appeared to be inside the "Winter Garden" area, but I could be wrong...

Any more news from our favorite band as to the meet & greet or post concert gathering? Smiley

I was watching TV the other day, and there was some kind of boat ride on the Detroit River called "Diamond Jack". 

http://www.diamondjack.com/publictours.html

THey have a 3:30 cruise. I wonder if that would be early enough to get off before the concert? Smiley

It says that it is a two hour cruise.  Seems like enough time since the concert starts at 8pm.  I would love to do something like that!  A good way to see Detroit!  Let me know if anyone else is interested! Smiley

With these shows by the Ren Cen, is it pretty wide open like Tastefest or do you have to pass through some kind of gate where they check you for what you might be bringing in? Are there seats or is it all  just lawn where you have to bring a chair? What time do people usually start getting there and how many people can this space hold? Thanks for any info from anyone.

WCSX has some photos of the past few weeks shows: http://www.wcsx.com/photos/(espically look at "Rockin' on the Riverfront June16th" gallery). It appears the area has chairs and can hold up to a few thousand people. I'm trying to find someone who went to one of the shows to get times and stuff but I'll probably get down there early evening as downtown should be alive and kickin' with the Romantics concert, a concert at the Joe(or Cobo... I forget) and the Tigers and Oakland playing just up the road.

Hey Solodka,
My friends and I are going for it! Wink I've been on boat cruises of other cities (New Orleans, Boston, etc.) but never in my own city! Smiley
I'll just make sure to take some Bonine before we get on the boat in case of seasickness. Smiley

Maybe we could get dinner at Greektown or pack a picnic-- the Riverwalk has some really pretty places to sit! Smiley  I walk on the riverfront every Monday in preparation for my 2nd 3-Day Breast Cancer walk. Wink

Hey Solodka & Bookies, do you think there would be any chance of us 'roping off" a little place for Romantics Fanatics to sit? Smiley I understand that they may be on the plaza right on the riverfront?

i came in the back way from northeast. i ended up on rivard crossed jefferson turned right and headed for the parking structure between beaubien and st. antoine. its the one next to the ren-cen  off the southeastcorner.  parked the truck walked to the southwest corner out the door on atwater and beaubien walked across the street down the stairs where they put on arm bands to track attendance. to the left they were selling food and beverage. turn right walk for a short distance and the stage is up on the right. for the grand funk show the stage was facing west. around show time most of the area was in the shadow of the ren-cen and a cool breeze off the river it was near 90 that day still was very comfortable. the promenade was very well done, so much so that it doesn't feel like your in detroit. hope this helps

More Parking Suggestions for July 21st Show.
Reply #36 - Jul 19th, 2006 at 3:40am
 
For those of us over 21, I suggest parking at Greektown and either walking the 4-5 blocks to the Ren Cen or taking the 50 cent People Mover. (If you are uncertain of where you are going, follow the People Mover rail south towards the river.

** Note:  Those under 21 can go inside the Trappers Alley/Greektown building, but NOT into the casino areas. Make sure you have someone over 21 years old who can get the parking validated.

Parking at Greektown is
FREE-
- all you have to do is to go inside the Greektown Casino and they will validate your parking card. (Enter into the casino go about 500 feet and turn left towards the money cages--it's just past there and you can self-vaildate! Smiley

The parking is well-lit and secure. 

Here are 2 maps of 1) where to park (starting point) and 2) how to get to the Riverwalk area.

*** NOTE: I recommend that you use the Mozilla Firefox Browser windows otherwise the maps may not look right on your monitor.
To get the Mozilla Firefox Browser, you can download it here: www.mozilla.com


*********************************************

Getting to the Greektown Casino Parking Deck:

Link: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=305050
My 1st map starts off the Lafayette Exit on South-bound I-75.
Drives to the Greektown Parking deck.  Walks over to the Greektown Casino (the path goes through the buildings)

*********************************************

Greektown Casino to the Ren Cen:

Link: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=305071
The 2nd map starts off at the Greektown Casino and heads Down Beaubian South to the Ren Cen.
This area is frequented by a lot of people and is reasonably safe.


*********************************************
Ren Cen to the Diamond Jack Boat Ride's Loading Dock

Link:http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=305103

It's only .25 miles away from the Ren Cen & the Waterfront. Smiley
You have to walk over the bridge and then back down and around the police parking lot. It's right at the end of the Police Parking lot. Smiley
Boat sails at 3:30 p.m. for anyone who wants to come, try to get there by 3:00 p.m. or so. ! Wink

i think it was less than hour before, got a beer and walked right to the corner of the stage. the security officers are employed by the ren-cen and most were very courtious and helpful. i know  most of them from working there for 20yrs as an electrician.

Yeah, I'm concerned about parking and then finding you all there Friday night!

Bookies, I hope you and solodka will have your cell phones with you.  Iris, I'm not sure if you have a cell phone?

Looking forward to it!

Add to the fact I believe there is a concert at the Joe and its going to be to intresting...  Hopefully the parking down by the RenCen won't be totally filled (and I doubt it will be). But on the flip side downtown will be alive and kickin!

Have to remember to listen to WCSX tomorrow at High Noon!  Thanks for the info.

Can't wait until tomorrow night, and the boyfriend is really looking forward to it, too.

What a KILLER show!!! My 3rd full Romantics show (well 4th if you count the mini-set at the All Star Game) and wow what a show! The band was so full of energy, there was a huge crowd (standing room only), everyone was clapping and dancing along to every song. I'll post a full review later with some pictures but wow what a show!

I have to agree with Andrew. I know it sounds like something we say after every show, but this is one of the best shows they have done that I can remember. The band was tight. The energy seemed to get better and better as the show went on. The flow of songs was great as well, so my hat is off to whoever wrote the set list. Wally's vocals were top notch tonight, and the mix was excellent. Kudos to the sound man. The vocals were on top, the guitars really cut through nicely, the drums and bass sound full and powerful. Again, the playing was real tight and not at all sloppy anywhere in the show. It was great to hear "New Kinda Pain" and "One In A Million" live. I think this was the first time I have heard either of these songs live. Sounded great. Saw Lynn there tonight and talked to here. She looked great and really fit and trim. Her boyfriend seemed like a real nice guy as well. I was hoping some of the board members would find me and come and say hello. I was tied up along the fence to the right of the crowd holding that damn video camera until my arm went numb, but it was worth it. I got the whole show virtually obstruction free other than a few hands in the air near the end. Looks like the DVD I am planning is going to have to include some of this show. Actually, this whole show might make a nice DVD on it's own. The show lasted close to an hour and a half. I have to ask. Solodka, was that you on stage in the white top and wearing shades while dancing to "What I Like About You"? If so, I have some great video of you grinding it out. Who were all of those women dancing on stage during that song? I'll have to take a closer look at the video. Anyway, to the Romantics: Outstanding show tonight.  If the studio version of"I Can Only Give You Anything" has half the energy of the live version I heard tonight, then it reallykicks ass. The live version tonight flat out burned. Great show. Glad I made it.

I'll have to post more details later when I'm more awake. 
It was another great Romantics show, and the crowd was packed tight and everyone seemed to be having a great time.  Oldfriend, it was nice to see you and your wife again (she seems so nice), and my goodness, thank you for the compliments!  It was my boyfriend's first Romantics show and he had fun.
He had met Brad and Wally before but I was able to introduce him to Mike and Coz.  As usual, all of the guys were friendly and great to us. 
It's always nice to see Iris and Eric, and it was good to see Judy and her family again, Chloe, and Kelly.  I've met the nicest people through the Romantics and this site!   SmileySorry that we didn't stick around for cake and stuff later, but it had been a long day and we were tired. 
More later.   Wink

"The Romantics" flat out ROCKED !!!! A lot of energy as well !!! I had a blast last night. I had to leave when they were playing "Talking in Your Sleep" to get over to Paychecks for our show. Old Friend whenever you get this DVD done let me know. Bookies THANK YOU for everything. Your family is Kick Ass !!!! And thank you for coming out to our show !!! The rest of the band was bummed they didn't get to the show and when I say bummed that is an understatement. Pink Bublez it was awesome to meet you and Thank You for coming out last night as well.
Till the next one near by !!!!!!

Well, I do have to agree with Oldfriend, this was the best show that I have ever seen The Romantics ever perform!  And I have seen about 8 now!  I think the set list went like this:

Rock You Up
Midnight to Six Man
When I Look In Your Eyes
61/49
Devil in Me
One In A Million
Come See Me
A Night Like This
Outta My Mind
Talking In Your Sleep
When The Angels Hear Me Callin'
New Kinda Pain
Tomboy
First In Line
Tonight
She's Got Everything
What I Like About You

Encore
I Need You
I Can Only Give You Everything

The Romantics totally fed off of all of the energy from the crowd.  It was amazing!  The show was absolute pandemonium!  In a great way!  People everywhere, in front of the stage, sides of the stage, behind the stage, on rooftops, boats, in the street, all having a great time!  I was even one of the girls dancing to "What I Like About You"!  I wasn't going to, but "Bubba" made me do it!  Oldfriend, Bubba was the girl with the white, wife-beater, Romantics tank with the black skirt.  But funny that you pegged me for dancing on stage!
I really must say, The Romantics sounded great!  I hope Oldfriend got a good recording of it!  I would love to hear it again and see what a complete fool I made of myself!  I was hoping it would be over before I was pulled up on stage, but now it's documented! Roll Eyes!

that' just about the same as the list i have used at the sound and light control board's.  this goes without saying but, i can't say it enough " the night, the music, the bands performance was fantastic. mike lily's expertise and mastery of not only sound control board but the romantic's music. it was great to meet  and put faces the user names.

I reviewed the tape and your set list is correct Solodka. The guys really looked like they were having fun which resulted in a great show. Mike even did a couple of  Pete Townsend type windmill strums on the guitar.  Hope to see another Detroit show without having to wait another year.

Well.I got them all done, but my www.fotogink.com server is down again. I can't upload the work (or any other) until its resolved. Thats what I get for picking a discount server.
I'll get em up ASAP !
Hey Bookie, email me at christopherfotogink@yahoo.com - for the shirt info !
It was pretty cool to see the new shirts, and I loved being surprised..but sometimes I wish people would contact me...I have  a few unused shots that would rock as shirt designs. A true photog sits on the unused stuff for just such an occasion !

I think it's the gas money, the war, the lack of cool weather. But hey, we got music !

Hey Bookie, can you get me one of these in a small girls style , like a tank ? That would rule...I'm going on tour soon with a band, and my gal wants to sport it ! I was broke at the show the other nite !

Hi All,
Quick Check-In....
I was directing a Girl Scout ARts camp all week.  Walked 18 miles the day after the concert and another 6 last Sunday...Tired as heck.....and barely able to keep my eyes open all week....

I have a fundraiser for my Breast Cancer Walk (A BBQ on Saturday (July 29th).... at my house.)  Can't wait to rest on Sunday and finally look at my pics!  I took some video, but unfortunately, we ran out of tape at the beginning of What I LIke About You. (Figures, it's my favorite song!) Grrrr.... I have to put that on my laptop before I can look at it!

I'll probably check back in on Sunday....

I watched the whole thing a couple of days ago. It turned out great. Better than the Tastefest video from a couple of years ago.  I got a good clear shot of the band for the whole show with some great close ups of everybody, and the sound came out excellent. The sound is good enough to make a really good audio cd, probably due to the excellent mix that the soundman had going. This was just a great show. I was thinking of adding some songs from this show when I put that DVD together, but this show was too good to leave anything out, so I think that my Romantics DVD project is going to be a 2 DVD set and will include this entire show. I have enough older material to easily fill up the first DVD. Now I just have to get that damn burner!

Oldfriend,
When you use your video camera, what does it copy it onto?  I'm sure that if I don't have the equipment, that we can get someone to do it!!!  That is one show that must be kept in it's entirety! Smiley

The camera is a Sony 8m. I already made a backup copy onto a Beta tape. My Beta machines are all hi fi stereo so the sound is perfectly preserved. In fact, I ran the sound through an equalizer and boosted some of the frequency on the low end and a little of the mids and highs so it sounds great. As for the video, the camera has a feature that you can use when transfering something to give it more of a vintage film look and that's what I did. It looks and sounds great. For Father's day I got some best buy gift cards. I just haven't got there yet to use them, but they WILL be used for a DVD burner for sure.

Now all you have to do is find someone that can transfer the beta and the 8m to DVD!!!!!!!!  Let's try working on that one before Christmas!  Didn't you say you knew someone who might do that?  If he doesn't, maybe he can refer you to someone who can do it!!!!  If not, you can always make a trip to Miami!!!!!!!!!!!

I just have to buy the burner. Once I get it, it should be no problem to transfer the 8 millimeter or the Beta tape to DVD. The burner, the Beta and the 8 millimeter all use the same video and audio in and out jacks. I have all the connector cables that I need. I just have to buy a good burner and we will be in business. It would be cool if someone here knew how to make some kind of artwork for the DVD case so that we could make this thing look really pro. I wanted to do that with the "Meet The Romantics" cd but I would need some help to get it done.

If I'm not mistaken, Jonnie's in the Velvematics.  Just go to the Romantics' page, and click on the Velvematics' picture under the "Friends of the Romantics" section, and that will take you to their page.

Hmmmm...if a drunk falls into the river during a Romantics show, and no one has a photo of it, did it really happen?   Wink
