Of course not Lori. Hey wait till you get to see him the HOB, you are going to love it, see ya there.
Hey Bob......I have only been to the HOB once and it was a LONG time ago. I know that this is a MUCH larger venue than Chicago City Limits and it is general admission/standing room only, but I can't help but wonder about what this experience will be like? Just getting an opportunity to see Frank play is amazing and I know I'm gonna love it wherever
he plays, but I think I got spoiled by Chicago City Limits and how up close and personal a place that was. Will HOB even let us see Frank after the show?? The tickets already say NO CAMERAS.
I would love
another opportunity to say HI, if I could, but I have a feeling it just won't be like that this time. Am I wrong?
don't misunderstand my questions. I am SO EXCITED about the opportunity to get to see Frank play again, and I will be 200% satisfied if I only get to see him play from afar. Just being there will be GREAT! :mrgreen: Heck, can't you tell by the way I'm thinking about it all ALREADY
LOL! I would just like to know a little more about how this place might
work. I don't get out that much. :roll:
In answer to your questions , first of all you will be surprised at how close you will be able to get. The stage is higher at the HOB but you can actually lean on it if you get there early, you will be plenty close, Frank might even dedicate Poppy to you again.
Secondly, I would not worry about bringing you camera, I have seen people with camera's everytime I have been there, including both times I saw Frank there. If I was going to bring one I would just be discreet with it.
The first time I saw frank there was on his first tour back, in 2000. We who are regulars here at the website were actually given "after show" passes, which were really cool, they were made out of plastic, they had the moonface on them, and they said Eye of The Storm, they also came with a nice lanyard if we wanted to wear it around out neck. I have Frank's autograph on it , it is one of my cherished keepsakes . So yeah we should be able to say hello after the show.
Plus the best part is that Frank will playing at a great place,the HOB gets the well known bands, Frank belongs here, not at Mr. Kelleys. And even though City Limits was not bad, it ain't the HOB. If you remember they were turning people away at Chicago City Limits. The House of Blues has a much larger capacity.
Hope this helps, I will be seeing you there for sure.
