events

Aug 09 2014
San Francisco, CA
Outside Lands Festival

The clock on the dressing room wall glowed 8:59, which usually means Tom and the band have started their walk to the stage, but tonight was special.
 
Earlier that day, Hypnotic Eye was named the number one album in the country, giving Tom and the guys their first number one hit in their illustrious careers.
 
As the guys gathered together minutes before show time, Steve Winwood stopped in to say hello and offer his congratulations.
 
“Rock ‘n roll is back on top, at least for one week,” Mike Campbell said with a grin.
 
“Thank you, Steve,” Tom said as the rest of the guy looked on. “It certainly means a lot coming from you.”

Bummed!  Renewed Legacy Highway Companions Club membership and then came to find out TP & HB's only NoCal show was at the Outside Lands Festival, which was already sold out!  Last time I scored 4th row tickets at The Greek in Berkeley... needless to say, disappointed.

I am going to chime in too about the Outside Lands be a bad place to be the ONLY place to see TP&HBrs in N California. Festivals are fun, but when you only go to see one group, not soo much!

The Filmore or Greek would be more appropriate, just have it at a different date then the festival.

....and on 2nd NOTE the Outside Lands Festival is SOLD OUT, so even if I wanted to go.....

Sorry to say I won't see you if the only gig in SF is Outside Lands.  The comments here say it correctly.  Thats 2 years straight of no TP and Heartbreakers because of the venue.  Please play a civilized venue in San Francisco.  I don't want to waste the gas to drive to LA, but it's better than Outside Lands

Dear Tom,

I hate festivals.  Too many people, not enough restrooms.  Please don't let this be the only show that you play in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thanks

Agree!  For those of us in the (cough, cough) 50ish crowd......don't feel like putting up with the "newer" fans, and want a seat and not have to be pushed and shoved, after standing in lines for HOURS.  Another venue?  Sacramento, Oakland, Reno?  Puhleeeeze?
