Our M&G 'meet at the box office' time for this show has pushed back (now 9:15)... given that and this Pontiac rooftop thing, then the 'on at midnight' timing for this show might actually be real.  Ugh.

I was just browsing and found this:

http://www.timessquarenyc.org/nye/nye_events.html

"11:18 p.m. to 11:26 p.m. (and 11:50 p.m. to 11:55 p.m.) - Velvet Revolver performs on the Pontiac Garage Stage atop the setback roof @ Two Times Square." 

Is this going to be part of the televised coverage of the night's events in NYC as well as the Sirius coverage (which I don't yet have)?  That would be so cool!!!  This could turn the revelry up a notch this year for those of us living half-way across the country!  (And how can they be in two places @ the same time?)

what channel is this going to be on?
i'll have to take over the TV remote at my party tonite


how confusing -- i guess VR will take the stage AFTER this performance? or BEFORE?


HAVE A GREAT TIME TONITE EVERYONE!!!!!!!!

I'll be thinking of you (with envy)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

ok so I woke up and saw I had a missed call from work (they are open, I took off) it was one of the girls who forgot I was off.
Anyway our warehouse guy's friend who works for Viacom is one of the people escorting the boys around town during this whole performing all over Manhattan clusterfuck tonight.
I got a call in trying to get more info.

Doesn't Jimmy Kimmel have a Pontiac Stage on his show? And that's ABC isn't it? Maybe this might be shown on ABC??
OR it might just be a performance for the people standing out in the cold.

Subway station?
You need to take the E or 1, 2 or 3 train from 42nd St to the Penn Station stop. In Penn Station exit the 8th Ave exit. Cross at 34th & 8th Ave and Hammerstein is right there on 34th.

did you find out what time they are being escorted to Hammerstein?

that could save a bunch of boring hours waiting for them to come on
you could have cocktails at Mustang Sally's instead  :)

This is completely last minute but a friend of mine backed out. I'm left with a ticket if anyone wants to buy. I got it at the internet presale for $99+13.50 surcharge but I'm willing to negotiate at this point. Call me on 201-757-6560, I'm going to head over to Hammerstein by 6.30pm and get in line. Anyone know if there's an opening act?

Yeah, what she said goes double for me!

Good luck, VR's intinerary tonite sounds as clear as mud, but however it ends up I'm sure they will be nothing less than fabulous!

Just got in.
IF they did the Times Square thing it was earlier in the evening because they took the stage 10:30ish? 10:45? I have no clue what time it was...but we welcomed the new year in with VR in the middle of the show. It was in between the Last Fight/ISLS/Patience blah blah set.
BUT HANDS DOWN THE BEST VR SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN! The crowd was the COOLEST. Everyone was so into it. This show just absolutely blew me away.
I hope someone taped it off Octane because I'm not a downloader....but this show I want.
Scott sounded good, came out like Nanook of the north in the parker, strip down to the t-shirt over a thermal then the thermal came off. He was animated all over the place and all the guys were having a BALL.

I'll download my camera tomorrow. I have no idea what is on there. I gave my camera to my friend who was standing on top of a garbage can and let him have a field day until the battery died.

Where's all the reports? After the downer of Trenton, I am very curious to hear about the Hammerstein. Sounds like a killer show. Was anyone at both shows? Would love to hear a comparison, especially about Scott.

I do have to say that VR has definetely changed things up this go round as opposed to the Contraband repeats.
