I hope you have the time of your life!

He was the lead guitarist for LA Guns and the lead guitarist of Brides Of Destruction.

Phil Lewis was the frontman for LA Guns and London LeGrand was the frontman of Brides of Destruction.

Tracii was also the very first guitar player for Guns N Roses but quit before the band even got big for him and Axl Rose did not get along very well.

Never heard of them before. I'm more of a R&G girl. Went to Snoop Dogg the other day!

That's great! Hope you have a great time! I love concerts! It's music like you've never heard it before. My girls and I just went to see the Black Eyed Peas Tuesday night. It was awesome! It was there first concert and it was quite an experience. As I told them - enjoy your hearing cause we won't be able to hear a damn thing when we leave here They had a rap band Flipsyde open up for them as well as the Pussy Cat Dolls -which I don't mind the music - but those scrawny little b*tches have got eat some food. I think all 6 of them together totaled maybe - 150 lbs. (And they were definitely dressed to show that - every guy in the joint was going nuts!).
Anyways - I hope you enjoy! This was my girls first concert and I"m sure there will be many more for them (and for me too!) There is nothing like seeing your favorite band/singer/lead LIVE! Nothing can compare.

Because my friend is so stupid now I have to take a train to my concert in Milwaukee. I'm still leaving on the 11th so that I can find the club but I'm worried about transportation everywhere and things like that! I have no idea what hotels are out there and I don't have any clue on how to find one close to the club when I'm not even there! I KNEW something would go wrong in this PERFECT plan! I'm just so ticked off that the thing that went wrong was my TRANSPORTATION!! I'm so incredibly FRUSTURATED now!!

Surely you can do internet searches to find accommodation. You could also find phone numbers for cab companies if you need that info.
post #20 of 29
Maps on Us is a good way to find your way around. It tells you exactly turn by turn how to get where you are going. You could use the train station as your beginning destination and go from there. Maybe things will get better before then. Lots of plans go haywire trying to get places, concerts especially, for some reason, then end up ok. You still have a little while, it could still work out.

Go to www.citysearch.com. They're like a yellow pages + introduction to the area. They rate just about everything that's on their site, hotels, restaurants, clubs, etc. I used it to find a hairstylist and a vet when I moved last fall.

Ohh, I'm sure they wouldn't mind! Don't worry about it; you know how nice everyone here is. I think they'd be happy to help you find your way around and tell you where everything is. Why don't you give it a try?

I hope everything goes well. Take a deep breath and try to get organized. I think an Internet search and maps/directions are a great idea. It will all work out and you'll have a great time

It's not the finding my way around that I'm having a problem with it's the transportation in general. Now I have to take a train to get there and I more than likely won't have enough money for a cab.
