*throws hands in the air like he just don't care* I'd been thinking about passing up my annual trip to St Louis each year to see Sammy, but... Dammit. KSHE 95 (a St Louis rock radio station) is having their 50th birthday celebration. I went to their 40th one right after I started working for Brad back in 2007...and it was Sammy Hagar. Since then, I've only missed 2 years of going over to see him. And they're having Sammy for their 50th. And apparently ZZ Top (whom I have seen 3 times already) and Collective Soul (whom I have seen once) will be playing the same show. So barring any major accidents or another stroke, I guess I am gonna go. Whether I go alone or with one of my sisters and brother-in-laws is up in the air right now, but one thing is certain. I'm getting a lawn chair. I just can't do the stand-for-hours-and-hours thing anymore.

I'm hoping the ticket price isn't very high with ZZ being there, Sammy usually sells St Louis tickets pretty cheap.

@TiarasOceanView I try to do Sammy every year, and then I catch the odd show now and then with one of my brothers. I got up front for one of Sammy's shows with Chickenfoot back in 2011 (and got his autograph ) but I can't do the 'crowd' scene these days

Last year the place they had it didn't rent lawn chairs and I really couldn't enjoy it. This year the venue having it rents folding lawn chairs for $5, and you just leave it where you were sitting after the show and they come collect them.

Wow, that's a station I haven't heard in a while. I lived near St Louis in 2000.
