Sorry to bug ya Joel - was this somewhere on the RARHOF site? We've been trying to figure out what to wear, and wondering if we really do need to be super dressy (which for us girls = ball-freezing cold. So to speak. )

It's not on the HoF site - it's just a good idea to look nice for this kind of thing.

We've heard a rumor that the Hard Rock Cafe is going to charge everyone $15 entrance into the Cafe on both days! Apparently they are doing this in cahoots with atu2. We are aware that many people are not in the position to spend ANOTHER $15+ dollars just to hang out, and watch a tribute band.

More info, and a possible alternate location, to come.. stay tuned...

and, let us know, what do you want to do...

Pay $15 to be at HRC? or go somewhere else for FREE?

Wtf? I'm not going to this, but that's bullshit that they're gonna charge that.


And yes, people....the midwest is FREEZING this time of year so I suggest thermal underwear under all those little black dresses.

I don't mind the $30, its just that I think its crap to take advantage of this situation. Just my opinion. I thought we were all supposed to be fans getting together to celebrate this band and their music---didn't think people would try and capitalize on it.
But, whatever.

Let me think about that for a minute...FREE.
What everyone else has said...I'm nervous anyway about eating after arriving, seeing as my brother is broke and I will be footing the bill, so anyway to save an extra $60 sounds good to me.

Ok folks, here is my thought on the matter. I know for a fact that Linda from Cinnci has been planning a gathering on Friday at the HRC for weeks. Now then, Elevation, was confirmed to play on Saturday, then there was a big enough interest that they were booked again on Friday. I know that Elevation is making a huge sacrifice in terms of pay so they can do this show.
Do we really know who is charging the cover? I know for an absolute fact, 100% sure it has nothing to do with the band.
If it's HRC
1) they are afraid too many people will just show up and not eat/drink so they don't make any money.
2) Once several people started inquiring about a party they realized the potential to make a lot of money based on the amount of interest they recieved.
If it's @u2.com placing the cover
1) They realized that the party they were planning would need some cash and needed to break even. (When U2-Midwest threw a party during the 3rd leg in Chicago, we held a raffle to pay for the expenses and then gave the rest as a tip to the servers).
It's all about money folks, sorry, but it is. Ok, I can understand it's a buisness, so charge a 5 dollar cover but anything over 5 is a ripoff.
In all honesty, if enough people bitch, then the HRC will probably drop the cover and maybe even @u2 if it's theirs. But I'm just mad because getting this many U2 fans together rarely happens, and I'd hate to see it divided between two venues cause someone got greedy. If it does get divided, remember, there are U2 fans under 21 and they probably have less money to spend on a cover charge then the 21+ people.
Thanks
-Tim

Answered my own question.
Hard Rock Cafe is charging a ten dollar cover per person to see the band, Elevation perform. Which sucks because HRC charges so much for their food, if you eat there they are really getting you.
@u2.com is holding a party which costs 15 dollars, but that includes the ten dollar cover to see Elevation. So 5 dollars for the @u2 party.
So I guess it's on HRC with the need for money.
Love All Serve all Charge All?
Thanks

UPDATE

This just in from Danno (from Elevation). I had asked him who (atu2?) is putting on the party at HRC with the cover charge... and here is his response:



maybe they are having another party???somewhere else!
All's i do know is we're playing Both nights
at the HRC in Cleveland, Feb 7-8th ..this doc came from the General Mngr of the HRC!
as far as i know the HRC & HOF are the ones putting this on ,
hope that helps!!.......

Cheers,
Danno



SO... until I get the exact details from HRC in the morning... it looks like atu2 is just trying to take the credit for this event. *cough*lame*cough*

For those wanting further info:

And when in doubt, call the Hard Rock itself.

I think so. I looked into it once and basically the rule is that their first year of eligibility for induction falls no earlier than 25 years after the release of their first recorded work. 3 was released in 1979. So yes, the answer is 2004.

Elevation is playing both Friday and Saturday at the HRC. They are a decent cover band, the guitarist absolutely rocks (just wait till you hear the play An Cat Dubh). I'll probably call HRC soon to find out if you need to pay the 15 dollar cover to get in the door, because that's kinda shitty considering how much HRC charges for their food and drinks.
Thanks
