That would be one heck of a night.  To bad there is no way we could go to that.  Hopefully some folks here can make it.   Cool

With such a huge show, is there any chance of seeing the band back/front stage.  I would love to go if any other board  members plan to go.   It would be great to meet other memebers, and it would be more memorable if we could chat with the band either before or after the show.  I'm afraid though, the Romantics will be justifiably engrossed/engaged with their fellow artists.  Bookies/Pinkies, do you have any opinion?

I wish I could go, but I can't afford the time away from work, nor the cost of the trip.  I even requested and got approved for the time off, but financially and logistically I cannot justify the trip.  So, I will have to content myself with the two Romantics' concerts I did get to see this year, and hope for another opportunity in 2007.

I'll expect that those who do go will have a great time.

I, too, could not get it done.

I couldn't get anyone to take my kids for 3 days.

What a great night it will be, though!

I too want to wish all of my friends on the Romantics Message Board a happy new year.  Hopefully 2007 will be another breakout year for the Romantics, offering numerous concerts and opportunites for fans to get together.  dennis

I noticed that the high/low temperatures for San Diego on New Year's Eve were 61/49.

Perfect conditions for the Romantics.   Wink

The show was a total blast!  Wall to wall people.  Of all the 5 diifferent stages, the stage that we were on with The Knack and Berlin, was the most well attended.  After we finished we stoppeed in to see Clem play with Blondie.  A brief intermission to bring in the New Year......

To be continued...... I am just arriving at my final destination!  Stay tuned!

here is a review:
http://www.ocregister.com/ocregister/entertainment/music/abox/article_1403957.ph...

i personally contacted the author of that piece and asked him specifically how The Romantics were and whether or not I had his permission to use his words.  He said I do have his permission and here is what he wrote:

I did think the Romantics were pretty good, but because of
all 6 stages, etc., I only caught them for a few
minutes. They sounded good and the crowd seemed to
love them too.

As is the nature with these multi-act, multi-stage
festivals, it is impossible to see everyone. In fact,
I didn't catch any of General Public on the main stage
or much of the set from Dishwalla either.

is anyone able to view the photos on the ocnye.com site?
i have three people telling me they can't see the photos.
i thought it is because i am on dial up and they are taking forever to load.
any feedback would be appreciated.
thanks!!

no view here and I've tried multiple browsers in order to view them.

I will be forced to create images in my head from the reviews and descriptions posted on line. Just like I am reading a book back 100 years ago in the Great West.

Hmmm, I don't know if I'm wearing spurs or not, I haven't gotten that far in my imagination. But, I will say The Romantics and The Knack were looking quite dapper and Terri Nunn wasn't too bad on the eyes either. Unfortunetly, Dave Diamond  and John Crawford were not in the band in my minds eye.

I am able to see the video.  You must have Quicktime in order to view it, but the photos are not able to be viewed at this time for some reason.  I believe they are still being compiled!
