Hay,Hay........tenth try to post.....SOMETHING MUST BE DONE....THIS SITE IS NOT WORKING WELL............9 tymes on WOW and now a new post
We are suffering a dose of SKYNYRDITIS.......last Fryday in Montreal...............
Full props to the band for enduring a very difficult evening...BUGS, BUGS and more BUGS......and 100 degree temps
GREAT SHOW....HORRIBLE VENUE
We have to comment that in the past we and others have been very critical of SKYNYRD management...NOT this tyme, its all the venue....AWEFUL......
So many things went wrong....
Here are just a few...
We purchased VIP tics online the very first day they went on sale..150$ each...
on the tickets, clearly stated doors 7PM, but on the website it said doors 5PM......
We arrived at 4:45 to try and get front row....
ONLY to discover that at the door there were 2 new levels of tickets
250$ (rows1-4) and 200$ (rows 5-8) and our tickets were only good for rows 9-12
In the entire VIP area (approx 600 seats)...there were TWO portable toilets............
@To the band ...we understand that the show must go on...THANK YOU
@Boxcar.....thanks for the visit.......
We will never attend another show at that venue again
and find it unlikley that the band would consider repeating such a show.....

I was with H7 and CBreeze at the show and can agree with all he said.
That said, I do have to admit it was one of the more memorable shows out of the 5 I have been to. Thanks to the advice of my good summit frynds (you all know who you are!) I will remember this show for the rest of my life! Lots of acknowledgment by/from the band and especially from my rock god Rickey! I was in heaven!!
My pics are posted on my Face Book page (Samantha Jean Johnson from Potsdam, NY) and are public. I've been getting a lot of comments from around the world! Very cool!! What a way to connect with new frynds!! I also posted them on my picasa page which will include videos. They are all public there as well - https://picasaweb.google.com/112121254656245011983/LynyrdSkynyrdNearMontrealOn7612#
Once you look at the album, click "my albums" for the others.
A great big thanks to H7 & CBreeze for another fabulous evening!! Can't wait for Marshall Tucker Band and Joe Bonamassa w/you two! And then I can hardly wait for another Skynyrd show w/ZZ Top on 9/9/12 in the the southern tier of NY!! HELL YEAH!!
