I'm sure John and the band will make it in on their flight but the equipment is a different matter given that it's probably coming by truck.  Hopefully they left early.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all gets there safely and on time!!

We New Englanders are hearty souls, much like folks from the Heartland!  Most recent forecast is for the storm to be over by Thursday morning.  Just got off the phone with Lowell Auditorium.  They said they never cancel, it will just be an issue of the trucks full of precious instruments and equipment.  (Would not want THAT insurance bill)  so for those of us driving from Maine, we'll just add some extra time onto the 4 hours. No doubt cranking up the JM all the way there.   As for the trucks, quick, someone tell them to leave NOW! Travel safe everyone.

I'm hoping the storm will not be an issue too. I, like many of you, have been waiting a LONG time for this and need something to forget about all this crappy weather. I bet John is already here in Massachusetts (probably Nantucket or the Cape) but if not, please get here safe and sound. We need you !   Smiley      PS) Safe travelling to everyone!

I don't know what John's travel plans are but from things I saw from people it looks like the crew moved their schedules up to try to be ahead of the weather.

Tony, that is some feat considering the hammering the Northeast has
gotten.   Looking forward to Radio City on the 18th.  Febuary is here and the countdown is on.  I am attending the show with my daughter,
it is her first show.   Making it a day in the big town!

I am going crazy...I also NEED this show! Now as far as "they never cancel" not true. I had tickets two years ago for the Providence, RI show and we got pounded with a snow storm and they canceled. So this is why I am going crazy! Shocked Drive safe everyone!

 I think what they Meant is the Lowell auditorium has never cancelled a show due to weather themselves , they keep the venue open as long as the Artist makes it .

Hey KC, I just got a "welcome to Lowell Auditorium" email, with parking info etc. specifically mentioned moving snow around, so I know it was written today!  I think you can breathe a sign of relief and look forward to an amazing night.  I know I cannot wait..... !

This will be my first time seeing him, 3 years go I headed out to see him and a snow storm hit closing everything and after driving a three hour stretch that usualy take 45mins. they canceled about 2 hours before the show! Thought I was going to repeat!!!
