Show was amazing in Tahoe - 9/11. Aaron opened for Dad and it was like watching Sammy years ago as a brunette. Tried to upload pics from the concert but the site said it was in beta mode. Please advise when we can upload. Thank you, Rosanne

Sammy! Ya Gotta Come To Newfoundland, Canada. I Haven't Seen A Show Since The Desert Sky Pavilion And The Mesa Amphitheater At The End Of The 90's. You've Got A Ton Of Fans Here, But It's Almost Impossible For Most Of Them To Afford/Schedule A Show Off The Rock For The Few Canadian Dates You Have. Hey Man, Where Better For The Red Rocker To Rock, Than On "The Rock" Itself.

Love Ya Brother

Don't Ever Give It Up.

Sammy ROCKS. I go way back with Sammy . I've seen him in his early solo days after Montrose and with Van Halen many times. What would be better than a Sammy show at my Beach - Jones Beach, NY ? Looking forward to a great show on 8/12.

Here's to praying and hoping the Birthday Gods are looking out for me this year! STAY RED Y'ALL! See ya in Houston!

so yeah I was sorta bummed when I saw that the Chickenfoot show didn't qualify for this contest, but if you can tell me what sort of humiliating stunt I can perform to get even a remote chance at meeting at least Sammy if not all the boys from the 'Foot on Sept. 10th, I will gladly do anything you ask.

Seriously...try me. oh yeah!!

Rock on!!!♥

Hey Sammy,
You never let your audience down,
Thank you so very much for playing Naperville Rib Fest, Knoch Park.
I thought it would never happen in the back on my mind,
I had a blast,
If Only, I could have got something autographed really would have put things over for me!!!!
I hope to see you again,
Hopefully one day, we will meet,
And, I can tell you how much I really apprecate you,
I love what you do!
Danny Cherry- Huggycub

Was at Naperville last nite. AWESOME. Sammy never lets me down. Onto Lansing Mi on the 14th. Then Sammy/areosmith show Detroit 8/31. Just what I love a summer filled with Sammy. If I did not have grandkids to raise..would follow Sammy all summer long!

See ya in Naperville, Sammy! I attended your first SOLO show on June 25th, 1980 at Poplar Creek Music Theatre. WCKG was giving away Red T-Shirts and I still have it!

I also saw you open for BOSTON at the Chicago Stadium in 1979 and you had a Trans Am on-stage. Met you for the first time in LA in 1992, by way of the late, great Ed Leffler. Then backstage with Van Halen at Alpine Valley in 1993.

Whether it's Montrose, Van Halen, Chickenfoot, or your amazing solo career, thanks for Rocking our World.

My very best,

This weeks show in Naperville, RIBFEST is actually Sammy's 30th anniversary for this area...see...Sammy's first SOLO headlining show was June 25th, 1980 at what was Poplar Creek Music Theatre.
Sure, he did Chicago shows, as opening act for BOSTON. But, this was his first as a headliner. That show only had a few hundred people show up. But, Sammy had such an impact on those that attended that we seeded the enthusiasm. Sammy may wonder why the midwest is such a good market for him...these shows are the reason why.

has the announcement been made for tthe backstage give away? We are here and heading down to the BB&G right now...let's get this parthy started!

Hey Daniel, I think a lot of people will be attending the Atlantic City concert. For us, a 9hr ride won't kill us, just to see all the Redheads before the concert. Is there a Redheads meeting somewhere, like at Sammy's Beach Bar at Bally's maybe...

Montreal, Canada

RIRedrocker's picture

We'll be there Daniel! 6 hour road trip!! Can't wait!!

bradleyr051's picture

Great new site! Looking forward to seeing Sammy and the Wabos along with Aerosmith in Atlantic City and of course here in Toronto with all the other Canadian Red Rockers!!

danielw075's picture

I hope I can afford the show coming closest to me in Atlantic City, NJ coming in August when Sammy opens up for Aerosmith. Anybody going to that show? LOVE YOU SAMMY & ALL!!!

annd012's picture

Hey Sammy see you at St. Louis!!! would love to have a back stage pass!! Love Ya!

Awww, is that why the Toronto 08/17 show isn't on the list? No contest running for that one? So sad :(

admin's picture

Hi everyone-- we now have the system fully automated for the backstage pass giveaway! The way it works is that 5 days before each show, the system takes a look at everyone who has clicked that "I Am Going" button (yes, you should already have your tickets before doing that!) and then shuffles them all, throws them up in the air, and grabs one Redhead at random to be the winner.

Winners are now automatically listed on the detail page for each tour date. Dates that don't have the contest running (ie, shows that aren't solo Sammy) won't have anything displayed.

Congratulations to the 3 winners of the upcoming shows-- jilld011 for 7/1, toddh093 for 7/2 and natl092 for 7/3! We know you're going to have a blast and look forward to hearing from you and sharing your photos with Sammy with everyone.

Kidboy500 - if you aren't certain your click of "I Am Going" worked, just visit the detail page (click "View Details" and you will see it clearly there with an "I'm going" (meaning you still need to click it) or a "I'm not going" (which means it did work). You also will see your user picture listed on the attendance list.

Not sure the "I am Going" Function is working properly. After you click it maybe the icon should be grayed out or maybe even have the words change to "Good Luck" or something.

Please pick us for Lansing!!! It's Harlan's 5th birthday ON THAT DAY!!! He truly believes Sammy is coming to town for his birthday.
