My girlfriend would love to go to this. It would be pretty sweet if it hit MN.

I'll be at the Portland show for sure. I saw Bullet Boys at a bar in my town last summer and it was great.

I'd love to see Gilby again, but not the rest of this.

They're playing the Paramount? Holy jeez that place is going to be EMPTY. They should be holding this in a local bar not a venue that holds over a thousand people.

I'm surprised WildAndYoung hasn't responded yet. I figured this would be one of his dream tours.

He's upset that it's not coming anywhere near him.

Kinda my thoughts regarding Boston & Hampton.

Wilbur holds 1,200. Casino Ballroom holds 2,200.

Either way, going to at least the Boston show. Wilbur's got the best sound of any venue around here and it's just 5 stops away on the train from my place.

i wouldnt be surprised if there was way more people at the casino ballroom show than there rightfully should be

and even if there wasnt many, place probably would still make a killing in booze

Quiet Riot have only a handful of songs I like, based on their sets Faster Pussycat doesn't play most of their good stuff anymore, BulletBoys are so-so to me, and I've actually never heard Gilby's stuff. Not to mention it is not coming to where I am, so I'll be passing on this tour (pretty much have run out on concert money anyway, Kiss/Leppard is a maybe but other than that no more shows for me this year unless something changes).

I saw the Bulletboys in 2006 at a brand new venue across from the old Shea Stadium, it was called Bottoms Up. The club lasted around a month, it didn't have a liquor license, and it was almost like a deadly contagious leprous person promoted the show, because there was absolutely no one there. It was also one of my favorite picture taking experiences ever, because I documented the desolation. Marq Torien said "well there's no one here tonight, but it's basically like free practice" or some such thing. I felt badly I guess, I tried to make them feel better by standing up front for Smooth Up In Ya.

"We'd like to thank Maideneer for coming out tonight!"

"We'd like to thank Maideneer for coming out tonight!"

:lol:

Even though they were one of the worst bands from that time period, that is still pretty sad. Faster Pussycat wasn't any better. This tour surely won't pull in more than 50 people per show.

I agree with Detuned on this one. Hampton Beach always does good with the 80s shit. While it certainly won't be a sellout, I could see at least 500, maybe up to 700 people there.

Boston, on the other hand, I'm still shocked it's even coming here.

Steel Panther aside, I can't recall the last hair/glam/sleaze show in the city of Boston.

Got curious and looked it up on setlist.fm, and they don't have any setlists for glam bands so chances are there hasn't been any (at least not a lot).

Those pictures are awesome. I guess Bullet Boys are the Virgil of Rock music.

No you wouldn't; THEY HAD A BARRIER TO KEEP YOU AND ALL THE OTHER RABID FANS OFF THE STAGE AND AWAY FROM THE BAND!

True that barricade could hold back a army. Plus if I did I don't know if the band could see me coming with all those other faces in the crowd.

Those Bulletboys pictures are priceless. This show will do well at Hampton, but I really donrt see this tour drawing at all. Who's singing for QR anyway?
