I saw Eric once around 1975 or so. I believe it was when his first solo album was out and he played the Tower Theatre outside Philly. I'm a fulltime musician and am usually working when he has come around since then. I really wanted to see him with Ringo but couldn't work it out. I got tickets to the 7/24 Keswick show because it was on a Wed. night and I had off. I'm taking, along with my wife, two friends who have birthdays in June. That's over $200 for the tickets. We have real good seats, too. I saw last year's Abbey Road tour and it wasn't the tightest show I ever saw but it was cool to see all those people on the same stage. I did enjoy the part of the show where Todd, Ann Wilson, David Pack, etc. played their own songs much better than the Beatles stuff although there were some highpoints in the second set, too. To sum up, I don't know Eric's reasons for considering not doing this show, but I would be more than disappointed if he backs out. There better be more to it than the music isn't tight,etc. Hopefully, he can put up with it for a month whether he really wants to or not. Many, many people have spent a lot of money to travel all sorts of distances to make this work for them. I hope he considers this when he makes his decision. For me, hearing GATW once live will make up for the last 27 years.
