Thanks for the link. Nice interview. Even nicer picture of Rick smiling Smile
Thanks for the link it was a good listen.

I would call him out on playing dumb to the order the acts will be playing on the tour though. I myself think they like the opening slot on tours like this because it makes for shorter nights. Even when I've seen them play club dates over the years they go on quite early.

Don't tell me they would sign a contract and not have the details worked out before hand. I personally don't believe that for a second.

yep.

irony on the shorter playing time. wasn't that part of the squabble with Bun E ?

I'm almost certain Heart will headline. They've had quite a few hits haven't they?


@13:06 - CT backing Lennon...? More reasons to hate Chapman.

I know John was going to tour again the next year. Rick didn't go into it much but I wonder if he wanted them to back him for that. Like the Dylan/Heartbreakers thing. That would have been something.
oh my. Just OH MY.
i agree, rick knows the order. When i heard the concert billing i figured heart would be the headliner but i am surprised that joan jett is second. I am quite surprised they would take this while promoting a record. lets face it, there will not be much of a crowd when they hit the stage first, mainly cheap trick fans. So who are they promoting this record to? Cheap trick fans will buy this record regardless. Just a puzzling decision to me.

They will have a large captive audience on the tour.
I think it will do them a lot of good as far as getting new fans and album sales goes.
