Raspberries--a fantasy tour


Recommended Posts

If you could pick a venue for a Raspberries show, what would it be? Include seating capacity if you have the info, and also "aura," if you know what I mean.

For me:

1. Wang Center for the Performing Arts, Boston. Has a 3,700-seat capacity and nice acoustics (comparable show I've seen there: Jackson Browne).

2. Kleinhan's Music Hall, Buffalo. Holds around 2,750.... My folks and sisters live about 40 minutes east, so I'd work in a family visit --- and drag my older sister along. She's a long-lost fan. :-)

3. House of Blues, Cleveland. Because I missed the first ones... I want another chance.

4. Carnegie Hall, New York. Poetic justice.

5. Bernie's and Kathy's living room (WAB)?

Our suggestion is ..... The Bowl of Brooklands.

It is a natural amphi-theatre in the city of New Plymouth in Taranaki about 3 hrs drive from our place. It has a large stage with a lake between the stage and the people. I saw The Sweet there, Roger Whitaker, The Seekers and the Ballet Swan Lake. They also have a festival each year called the Womad festival and that happened a couple of weeks ago. Its a great venue. I think it holds about 8,000. happy

However, we would run with Kathy's backyard during WAB... or you could all come have WAB - Down Under with The Raspberries. That would be cool. Kiwi and I could feed you all on Chocolate fish. I'd even arrange some lizard tails for Mr.Cartmill laugh

Muzza cool

Any place where I can stand right in front of the stage with a steady supply of cold Yuengling Lagers. I'm sorry, but sitting and rock 'n' roll just don't together. That's why I loved the first House of Blues show so much...just me and a cold beer a mere 10 feet from the stage.
