Wow. Hope the ticket prices aren't too inflated...three great bands each with a fairly strong following.

I would love to go to this if the price is right. Somehow I think it's going to be expensive...

No stop in Los Angeles, Poison's home town. I might have to make the two hour drive to San Benardino ....

Good triple bill. Poison has always been good at keeping ticket prices low but Def Leppard was quite expensive for their tour last summer. Will be interesting to see if the the two bands are going to be rotating who closes each night. Both bands have been drawing an average of 8-12000 people on their own with past few summer tours, so this could draw more than Cruefest (depending on who they have on the bill)....add Cheap Trick to the mix and that is bonus in itself!!!

I sure hope their not expensive. I cant afford another high price show. And wasnt Bretts claim that they were keeping prices low ?
February 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDamnp78
Def Leppard and Poison are my two favorite bands...I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just hope tickets are decently priced after all the economy is shit and I'm a college student, but this makes me so incredibly happy!! This is an awesome line up.

Cheap Trick will probably be the only band on that bill whose set list won't be totally predictable night after night. That's what I love about the boys from Rockford. they're not afraid to draw from their whole catalog when playing live.

It's a shame this tour isn't coming down to San Diego. I haven't seen Cheap Trick live in years, not since I lived in New Jersey, and they used to play at Great Adventure every Summer. I think I saw them like five years in a row in the roaring 80s.

I goota say, im just not excited at all. Poison are great, but they dont play enough songs any more at their shows, and Bret seems to concerned about his reality show and his solo career to focus. I saw Def Leppard last year and they were HORRIBLE. Cheap Trick is cool, but they will probably only get a half hour to play. I will go but looks like I will be rockin the lawn instead of getting great seats like I usually do.
February 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKenny Crawford
even though i don't think joe can sing live anymore i think i'll be going but more than likely i'll be in teh cheap seats. i think the will like this a lot. i'd really like to see cheap trick, never got to see lep but i did see poison at the first rocklahoma.

this just pisses me the fuck off you people should be glad that these glam bands still tour get a grip people
February 27, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbilly
I agree with Bob, it would be nice if Poison changed their setlist once a decade. I would love to hear some old school stuff like Cry Tough or Rockin' Horse. Oh well, I know I will still go and have a good time!
