Well, the official story anyway is that as there "was no sound check", which I suppose means it would've been logistically too complicated to admit fans as there were five bands on the bill tonight, so no sound check admittance.
Instead, we got to stand stage right (on stage) during the entire Motorhead set. It was still a no pics, no drinks, etc. affair, but a much better deal IMO.
This proves to me again what great people the band and Singerman are. No lame "sorry" + refund, but a better alternative!
Great set (again) and many a sign of acknowledgment from the band.
So I remain in the opinion that $100 is not much at all for random strangers to be allowed this close to the band, something normally reserved for only the most diehard fans.
I'm grateful because I know Lemmy, Phil and Mikkey work very hard to put the music, and us fans, before the business.
