Nice! I'll be there!

Wed-Jun-30 Lowell, MA (Edward A Lelacheur Park)
baseball park, that's where the Lowell Spinners play

I work in the next town over (Chelmsford) I'll just swing over there after work ;-)

Thanks for the heads up on the Summer Tour.
I'll be ordering my tix for the Mann Music Center in Philly ASAP.

I miss Jerry, but I don't miss the mega-crowd scene towards the end. Life is bittersweet....

Phil and Bob still rocking at retirement ages, BB King is still going strong in his 80's. Gotta love it!

I may make the Penns Peak show. I grew up just a few miles from there, but the place never exisited until long after I flew the coop.

I just saw the Broomfield show. The band seems to have a certain tension...I don't know if it's because the road is getting old, or personalities are rubbing raw, but there just wasn't the trust and spontaniety there. It almost seemed like no one was secure enough to step out. And Bobby seemed a little miffed and too controling. I liked the old days where the effort seemed more of a group thing, with everyone on the same page. Also, I prefer to see Phil or Bobby on their own, rather than in the cover band that seems to be developing. Before I have another $350 night, I think I want to see 110% without the rough edges. The talent is there, but not the trust or spirit of cooperation. Could have been just a bad night, but I MISS JERRY!!!!!

Penns Peak sold out in about 30 seconds.
I missed it (didn't get tix).

woo-hoo SUMMER TOUR!! Hopefully another place close to Virginia that's not a big festival. Lowell show sounds interesting - birthplace of the industrial revolution in the US and on a baseball diamond - appeals to the history geek and baseball geek in me :)

They're playing 3 days on Memorial weekend at Mountain Aire. Saw my first show there 23 years ago, this August.

Can't wait to go back!

Yeah we don't really wanna go to All Good, so we might just make the drive to Philly if there's nothing closer to VA.
