RE: Summer 2016 Tour Dates
I seems there are lots of possibilities, especially for shows not yet announced. But from what I have seen the venues for shows that are scheduled simply say "Haley Reinhart" which would indicate she is the headliner.

Doing the math on ticket sales most shows can gross 8K to about 13.5K if they sell out (excluding Pittsburgh). But #teamHaley won't get all that money. Of course there are also VIP tickets and Merch. I think merchandise becomes important as an added revenue source, and she has some very dedicated fans who would buy up all kinds of stuff. I hope she takes advantage of that.

She really needs to do this with a band. A tour like this has to be budgeted carefully though. Some bands are happy to pile into a big van, and cram themselves into cheap hotel rooms when they stay in a hotel. It will be interesting to see what choices Haley makes. Tongue A bigger touring bus is likely to cost her $1500 a day. She could probably get 4 musicians for about 1K a day, keeping in mind some of the days are off days.

(Just some guess type numbers.)

I'm confident that Haley wants to do this with a full band, excited to see who she gets to come with.... Big Grin

I called the Pittsburgh venue, Stage AE, and found out that it is an indoor show and it is standing room only, no seating in the venue. So, I am probably going to pass. I also checked out the Columbus, OH venue. It is set-up the same way. As an aside, Phillip Phillips is also playing the Pittsburgh venue later this summer. His is an outdoor show and there is some reserved seating available, $55.00.

I wonder if when planning this initial phase of the Tour they had/have a budget they are working toward, and then might expand the number of dates if the advance ticket sales are strong? The other X Factor is the release of the new single and album. If Better begins to get some radio play, and the album sales are strong, then that would influence a decision to add more dates. I would think they would have more information by the end of April on both accounts.

Seems to me this is a tipping of the toe into the bath water, so to speak. I'm lucky that the Tour is coming very near where I live, but that's not the case for a lot of Haliens (long-time and newly enrolled). I would think that Haley would want to play many more venues to satisfy her fans if she could. Only time will tell. It's really amazing what Haley & Team have been able to leverage their way toward.

To me the Portland gig (and Tusk's incredible video/audio) is really the strongest indicator of the quality of what a "Haley Reinhard in Concert" will be like (and the current gold standard for Hales in concert). Throw in a band, double (or triple the number of songs) and you'll have a truly KILLER event, and something her fans and the media can respond to.

Thnx for the compliment, but I'd defer to her BGDays performance w/ Midnight as a better representation of what we'd like a Haley concert to be.

Portland had the intimacy and minimum crowd noise that helped highlight all the colours of her vocals, but when we're talking about a 'full band' concert set, as someone who's seen Haley in a wide variety of environments (from a living room to a festival full concert show), for a 'true' Haley concert experience, it's hard to beat a full band (lead guitar, bass, drums, TWO keyboadists and 2 back up singers) 20 song set that a lucky few of us experienced that summer's day 3 years ago Tongue

HeartHeart Can we have her mom and dad on Tour?? They could share a room to cut down on expenses! If they come to the Bay Area to kick off he Tour I'll take them (and any other Haliens who venture this way) wine tasting in Napa on their day off.

The actual winner of American Idol ( she was robbed and is the reason why they are canceled ) will be doing a show at El Rey theater. Who wants to go?

That performance was just so freaking good. Wish I could have seen that live.

RE: Summer 2016 Tour Dates
I'd like nothing more than to have the Midnight Band be Haley's Band for her tour...except then I'd only get to see them twice (Chicago & Minnesota) during the whole month of June. But I betcha that Angie might be touring with Haley as a backup singer since she will be done with College in June.

It sure feels more comfortable knowing that Haley is calling the shots rather than Interscope.

Ok so Haley Reinhart is coming to cbus in a couple of months. Actually considering going to see her in concert. Just worried about me being the odd male in the crowd. Sorry but her voice is amazing. Plus she takes newer songs and sings them in the old style, how could I not enjoy it. If you're a Donnie Darko fan, here's the song "Mad World" sung by her and a clown. I'd be ok with her singing me to sleep every night ? I know from Angerfist to Haley, I have an odd taste in music
