Well at the moment, we are four days and counting. It is going to be a great couple of days. Just saw Derek the other night and yeah, he's pretty good.

Looking forward to see all the local yocals.


Chicagofan - 8/16/2013 at 01:44 PM

People can you feel it???? Yes, starting to get that uncontrollable smile that begins to overtake one as the days to the shows creep closer. Looking forward to two packed days of seeing friends and wonderful music.


jparadise - 8/16/2013 at 02:32 PM

I can't wait for these shows. Going to be alot of fun.....let me know if you all want to get together before the shows. If any Chicago peeps are downtown tonight.....my band, J.J. & DRE is throwing a release party for our 2nd album at Wise Fool's Pub. We start at 9 and will play all night....come say hi if you're in town.


Chicagofan - 8/16/2013 at 03:45 PM

I got tickets for Tommy Talton at Buddy' Guys both days. Food is good there. Starts at three and finished by show time. Lefty Collins at the House of Blues after the first show.


rollalong - 8/16/2013 at 03:52 PM

We just have tickets for the 20th. Any tips on trying to find a "miracle" or two for the 21st when we go to the Tuesday show? Sold out for the 21st - right?

Sandman - 8/17/2013 at 01:38 PM

It'll be great to see Lefty and the gang at the HOB, too...it's been far too long!


aekdbmoid - 8/17/2013 at 01:40 PM

It's a great month or two for those of us in and around Chicago, that's for sure!


Chicagofan - 8/17/2013 at 03:48 PM

While I'll be at the shows on Tuesday and Wednesday, anyone in early on Monday, come on by my restaurant for some dinner if you have time. We are Taste of Peru at 6545 N Clark Street. BYOB and music on Monday. Who knows, maybe Jaimoe will come in or Gregg will use that gift certificate I gave him.


woodsrat - 8/17/2013 at 05:54 PM

Anyone coming to the shows from the extreme southern suburbs of Chicago? I'm camping at Peotone and riding the train to and from the downtown area but if the after-show nightlife was good it would be nice to be able to snag a ride back to the University Park station in the event I got to partying and missed my train.


jswihart01 - 8/18/2013 at 01:25 PM

Ya'll have fun this week...wish I was there.


hailboognish - 8/18/2013 at 02:44 PM

I'll be there Tues & Wed ... can't wait, haven't seen them since 2005!!

Anybody think we might get a guest sit-in?

I am but I'm taking the train too. You could always sleep a while in the train station. I've done it when I've missed the last train. The first train out is at 5:15. Most clubs close at 2 but you could always visit the Weiners Circle for some verbal abuse and then the Kingston Mines which is near there and open until 4.

p.s. Nice website!

we were notified late friday night that due to an error by the talent buyer at HOB we will NOT be playing Chicago HOB on Tuesday night ..

not happy about it but not much we can do... I just don't want y'all to head there and pay your money expecting to see us and be as surprised as we were..I hope to see some of you on Wednesday...

Oh no! What a bummer, Lefty! I was really looking forward to seeing you. It's been way too long.


Sandman - 8/19/2013 at 12:50 AM

Total bummer, Lefty...sorry to hear that. We'll see you, regardless though...


jkd-xrds - 8/19/2013 at 03:20 AM

Hope everyone has a good time in Chicago.

Coming in from out of town and starting Tuesday's proceedings off with Uno's Pizza, then on to Howells & Hood for some beers and finally on to see the ABB with family and friends scattered throughout the Chicago Theater.

Shame about HOB, would have been a nice post-party destination. Everyone be safe.


Lee - 8/19/2013 at 10:00 AM

Damn lefty, that sucks.

At least you will be in town which is a silver lining.

Lee - 8/20/2013 at 10:05 AM

Not even five AM and I am cranking some ABB. Hell, my newspaper hasn't even arrived yet. Gonna be a few great nights.

There are three knuckleheads staying with me for a few days.

And my wife, in all her kindness, bought four peaches for us before she leaves town.


SweetRiver - 8/20/2013 at 12:32 PM

Chicagofan - 8/20/2013 at 02:43 PM

leftyblues - 8/20/2013 at 03:48 PM

working on chicago for october


Chicagofan - 8/20/2013 at 04:33 PM

Lefty,

See you at GABBA. Trip is already booked. Really bummed your not playing this evening. I'm kinda pissed at the House of Blues. They would have had a fine crowd there this evening.


Sang - 8/20/2013 at 05:29 PM

I probably won't do Buddy Guy's, at least for today. Some of us are staying near House of Blues, and may pre-show at Harry Carey's........

Sounds good. We'll stop by before the show for a beer. Pete is interested in going to LouMal first, then we'll walk over. After the show we're going to Moe's/John Barleycorn for a post show bev and a steak taco. 2AM close. 1 1/2 blocks west of Harry's on Kinzie.


leftyblues - 8/20/2013 at 08:38 PM

let them know Julie...


RobJohnson - 8/20/2013 at 11:20 PM

As a proud ambassador of the Fox, Atlanta's version of the Chicago Theater, I am happy for everyone who is going to these shows There is nothing like seeing a great band like the ABB in a venue that is just as legendary as they are.

I can only hope for one more similar multi-night run at the Fox before the ABB hangs it up for good.


Chicagofan - 8/23/2013 at 01:48 PM

Lefty,

I sent an e-mail to the House of Blues letting them know how we felt about you getting bumped.
