arghhhh.....I know the feeling....but it was worth every single penny, every logistical nightmare, every over 100 degree day sweating and dancing. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!!!

It's amazing how easy it is to spend money on tour. I blew a lot of money touring with the Dead but I REALLY blew a lot of money touring with the Stones. Some of those ticket prices were astronomical. Looking back on it, though, I don't regret a cent.

Yeah I always set a limit and then wind up at least doubling it by the time I get home, but picture the blinded lady of justice holding money in one plate and Shows/Tours etc in the other, wouldn't even compare. Hey mushrooman you comin out West? I would assume not after doing that much damage to the wallet but we'd love to have you out man you seem like a fungi!

i surprisingly spent very little during the 6 shows i did this summer...really only about what i allotted which is a good thing...nothing worse than coming back from tour (or part of one) to basically no cash...always leave some at home folks!! i was even able to buy some prints and other neat things in the lot...not buying things like beer and other goodies everynight i've saved money and enjoyed myself and the music much better! now it is time to continue saving so the west coast is a breeze financially
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

What, did you run into Charlie Sheen? I hear he isn't a cheap date. Just hold on to your briefcase.

I can't make it out west this time. I will be seeing 2 of the cancled Bobby shows when they're rescheduled and I also have my tickets for 9/3 Bobby Solo. I didn't get tickets yet cause I figure it wont sell out (and I'm almost broke but I will also be heading up to the Moe Down Festival after the 9/3 show to catch Bob playing with the Levon Helm Band, Hornsby is also playing that day (9/4).

If they have a late fall tour like last year I'm going to see what I can do, cause I only made 3 shows in my area last fall so I just may have to actually go 'on the road' for the first time but I wouldn't go without tickets and a plan for sleeping n all that.

I'd love to meet more people on here and if/when I make it out your way I'm certainly down for it.... BTW that fungi comment was hillarious

I think half of my budget for 8 shows was spend on WATER. Holy heat wave! 3100 miles driven....gas wasn't cheap!
Would do it again and again and again. See you at Red Rocks!
