At the Horseshoe Casino
« on: June 26, 2013, 03:07:58 PM »

As has been mentioned around here a few times, there have been several interesting shows that have either happened or will happen.  For this specific show I received an email about today, there is good news and bad news.
Good news is, Weezer will be playing on Friday, September 20th.
Bad news is the presale tickets are $59.31 each after the processing fee.
WAY too much.

I might pay that for a show in which they didn't play anything after the Green album, but I certainly wouldn't pay knowing I'd have to hear even a second of the shit they've done since.

$60? I think I just saw them last year for less than that and with a couple of dozen openers.

I think you are referring to the Bunbury

Speaking of which... those other headliners from 2012 Bunbury, Jane's Addiction, are also coming to the Horseshoe this summer, and while I can't remember the exact ticekt price off the top of my head, it is also quite steep.

Homsar, you do know that you can avoid most of the "convenience" charges by buying the tickets at the Horseshoe, right? You can buy tickets inside at the Horseshoe souvenier store (where they sell the Horseshoe shotglasses etc.). But even with that I think the Weezer show is overpriced.

If it sounds like I am the expert on the Shoe, I am not. But I did stay at a Holiday Inn last... urr... I did go see one show so far at the Shoe, none other than Ke$ha, and we had a blast. People were ready to par-tey!! Great sound, nice grassy pitch, plenty of room to get around/stand around, very enjoyable concert experience all around.

Oh the one processing fee on the price was only a few dollars.  Face value was around $55.

If you ever see a band playing there called The Touchables, you should go see them. That's my buddy's band - whom many of you have met - and they play there often.

looking at recent set lists of Weezer, they play mostly Blue Album and Green Album songs, with a couple of later tracks thrown in, it seems they know what the fans want to hear

Just when you think you've seen it all, now this:


Judas Priest, at the Horseshoe, Sunday, May 17


Tickets ($43) go on (pre)sale tomorrow Tuesday.

I don't know a single song from Judas Priest, and obviously have never seen them in concert, yet something deep in me says that I should check this out. I probably won't but I kinda like it for some reason that they're coming here.

Friday, July 10 (tix went on sale this past Friday 3/27)

311


If the weather cooperates, I'll be at this show. I used to go to 311's annual Riverbend summer show for YEARS. Really loved that band back in the day.

Both at the outdoor "venue":

June 11--Dolly Parton
August 26--John Fogerty

I've never seen a show at this place and have some questions for those who have.  Is it all standing?  Mrs. Drjohnrock would like to see Dolly but likes having a chair.  I read one review that talked about folding chairs.  Also, do you have to enter and exit through the casino?  In addition, I thought the outdoor space was all general admission but the Parton show has some reserved sections that appear to already be sold out.

Drjohn, I've been to several shows there, and bottom line is this: EACH SHOW HAS ITS OWN SEATING ARRANGEMENTS.

The Kesha show I saw there with my daughter was SRO general admission, and no chairs allowed whatsoever.

The Earth, Wind & Fire show I saw there was divided into two section, and in the back section (where I was) it was general admission BUT you were allowed to bring your own chair. The front section was reserved seating only. I'm guessing that is how the Parton show is as well, but obviously you should confirm that you can bring chairs in the non-reserved back section.

Good luck!

Thanks, euro60.  I'll check, but it's probably the same as the Earth Wind and Fire show you saw.  Dolly is playing a lot of places this summer, so maybe I'll tie one of those out-of-town gigs into a vacation. My wife wants no part of big general admission crowds after going to that Buckle thing, which you Blue Ash residents now have the pleasure of hosting  ;D

FWIW, the EW&F gig was really fun, and even though it was general admission, people (most of whom were in our age group, and had no interest in a wild shuffle) were very relaxed. What we did was we were there when the gates opened, picked our spot and parked our chairs, and then went to dinner at Marguaritaville. (Not my choice....) So we ended up in the second row of parked chairs, great view of the stage, and even though it was general admission, it didn't feel that way at all.

By the way, you don't go through the casino in order to get to the show. It has its own side entrances. I have to say, I was really pleased with the way things worked out at the Shoe. Even for the Kesha show, when it was a true general admission, things felt very comfortable with plenty of space. And plenty of craft beer stations  ;)
