Dates, dates & more dates!
We started today with some big names – Bon Jovi’s world tour followed by new Celine Dion United Kingdom dates. Then it was on to Rage Against The Machine, Kottonmouth Kings, Fuel, Gordon Lightfoot and Hawthorne Heights.
Around noon we grabbed a burger and posted shows for Emerson Hart, Foghat, Disco Biscuits, Cowboy Mouth and Cracker.
Then sometime about 3 or 4 p.m. we slammed in some new dates for Dark Star Orchestra, Donna The Buffalo, G Tom Mac, Richard Hawley, Wilco and The Smithereens.
And now our day has come to a close and our parole officer is waiting for us in the front lobby. See ya!
