  What's the name of that Amphitheater in Milwaukee where Summerfest is? That is one of the most scenic concert venues I've been to. Drove up from Indy on TM tour. Hell of a long drive:)

  I've been to a few at United Center. Hate driving downtown Chicago when you are not familiar with it. That New World outdoor venue was easy to get in and out of.

The old World Amphitheater was a shithole in my never to be humbled opinion. First time I was there was on the RTB tour and I hated it... no.. hate is far too light of a word really....




Hate the United Center as well.


Guess who ISNT going to Chicago once again?    tongue.gif

The New World Amp.'s ass sucks buttermilk...... through a straw!

The UC is good as long as you are on the floor within 15 rows of the stage.

I'll be there, come hell or high water.

I'm planning on going to this show, since there's no Milwaukee show, again.
I hope they play here in the summer next year(2013), but I'm not going to wait another year to see them!

I will be headed there as well since Milwaukee doesnt get a dateon this leg. I am hoping for another Summerfest show next summer but will have to make the trek to Chicago with the wife and kids. Going to be expensive since the girls want to a day early and "shop". Anyone know of  Nice hotel very close to the venue?

We are staying at a Marriott that is 1 mile from the venue - Marriott at Medical District/UIC.  Looks decent.  Important thing for us was that it was close to the United Center.

book a room at the Marriot mentioned in Chicago.
Anyone else doing these two shows? Purchased
VIP package for Chicago & will do the same for Indy
Next Monday!

nope, just Chicago. I really wanted to see more than one show, but I blew my ticket fund on a VIP ticket. I'll have to wait and see what 2013 brings(hopefully, a Milwaukee show!).

Yeah, that would be great! Not sure why they skipped Milwaukee this time unless since they were there last year at Summerfest, they needed to go to other places.  These are my first two shows (hey, better late, then never) so I don't have a good history of how they tour and what places they routinely go to.  I'm a 40+ die-hard female fan since the early 80's.....I have to make up for lost time!....

They weren't here last summer. It was in 2010.
They skipped us last year too, having been here on the first leg of the tour.
I'm hoping for Summerfest 2013, or any time in Summer 2013!
