Severance Hall Update


Recommended Posts

Eric had some trouble posting last night so he asked me to post this for him.

Well, I have bad news and good news. Which would you like first? The bad news? The Severance Hall show originally set for Oct. 6th has run into a little snag. It seems a certain female singer is looking at the possibility of playing an Arena sized venue in Cleveland on…you guessed it, Oct. 6th! This singer, let's call her Babs, has got the 6th and the 15th on hold and has been taking her good old time deciding which date to play (about three weeks and counting). I don't usually concern myself with such things but, since Babs has sold more records than the Beatles, AND she hasn't toured in many, many years, AND she is charging EXTREMELY high prices for her tickets, AND she may never tour again, I think going up against her on Oct. 6th might not be the smartest thing to do. The good news? Well, the good news is that I have every intention of finding an evening when Babs ISN'T coming to Cleveland and rescheduling the show. AND, because there's more time to put things together, there may just be a few extra little things thrown in for good measure. I apologize for keeping everyone waiting so long. We were literally one day from announcing the show when all this happened. Once again, I'll update you when there's any development. Thanks for all your support. You guys are truly the best. ec

Maybe the real story is this "Babs" was waiting to see Erics' move, before she made hers. Well, I guess now she can breath a sigh of relief that the Eric Carmen extravaganza will move days :P

I guess we will wait for the good news of another firm date smile

On Wikipedia, 14 artists/groups are listed as likely having over 250 million in LP sales, world-wide, and Babs isn't there....although she did make the list of those with greater than 100 million.

On the RIAA site, which counts American sales only, Babs is a distant 8th.

I just read something on her site (www.barbrastreisand.com/bio_bio.html) about her 50 gold records being more than the Beatles or Stones, but trailing Elvis...without specifically mentioning total # of records sold.

Babs needs to record a duet with Eric...That would help her atone for this inconvenience.

"Guilty" would be just right, considering the occasion.... :-)

(Actually, I'm no Streisand fan, but it would be nice to hear her tackle something like "Foolin' Myself"...)

I am soooo disappointed baby

I was so ready for this solo show. At least a "rescheduling" is in the process. Here comes that anticipation again. I just hope it is not rescheduled during the winter months when Cleveland is under a blanket of snow and the weather everywhere else is "ify" to travel. Can't "The Diva" find another state to give a concert?

OK - I can stop politely arguing with Pete about Oct. 6th...the next day is Family Day at Kyle's college! My argument was not everybody's parents go to Family Day....Pete's argument was that we could drive back after the concert....

this was all your fault, eric!!! Making me choose between your solo show and my kid crazywink but now, you have so kindly decided not to make me choose.

just make sure you do this show......pretty please.

Blabs is probably making some appearances before the November election to promote the wacko left-wing communist candidates she supports. Eric....keep your distance from this very radical and unbalanced person. "The Way We Used To Be" is far superior to "The Way We Were". But...the real deal is that the way you are far far outshines the way she is!!!!

In case there is any doubt...I cannot stand that woman!
