Set for July 23 to Aug 3, 2008. Lotus plans on unveiling the new car.

Anyone here going? I was thinking about it, but hard to justify just to check out the car. Some interesting bands from my era are playing, Meat Loaf, Alice Cooper, Blondie, Squeeze. Hmm... Could be a fun time.

I was going to go but with things working out they way they have, I can't justify it at this point. If I could have used it as a business trip, I'd already be booked.

I shall be there :D Can't wait :nanner:

My sister is getting married in London on July 24th, so it was easy to justify.

I'll try and get pics up timely.

You might actually see real pics by the 17th of July...we'll see :shrug:
Figured it would HAVE to debut for the press before the public days. Looking forward to it.

p.s. to ransack, yes that is my Noble at Tail of the Dragon. It is also something off the Internet. And yes, somebody has a Mosler.

haha I know what you're doing there, taking my question out of the context and stuff.
Now would this certain somebody that has the mosler, would he (or she, although the chances of being a she are less) be willing to just give it to me because he prolly has more cars or maybe I could be his long lost cousin/nephew or something like that?

ps- Supervixen, Cheese out? as in South Park cheesing? Nippopolis?,, c'mon who totally liked that episode?

I got clients there so its expensable for me... but t's kinda funny how many of these acts are American: Blondie, Meatloaf, Alice Cooper... did they run out of Enlgish bands to use? hey, Oasis can't be doing anything that week. For that matter I bet Paul Weller or Stone Roses are free too.

Well kind of funny, except you named the only three American acts :thwack:

British Acts playing
UB40
Status Quo
Squeeze
Bananarama
Kid Creole
Toyah
Paul Young
Midge Ure
Deep Purple
Jools Holland
Marc Almond

US Acts playing
Blondie
Alice Cooper
Meat Loaf

BTW
Oasis have a new single out in Sept and an album in October, so they're busy finishing that up.

Paul Weller just released his new Album, "22 Dreams". It's fantastic :coolnana: so he's busy touring and promoting that.
....and here's the Stone Roses connection (that if you had read this months issue of Spin magazine you would know already).
Weller's 22 Dreams album features a spoken-word track with vocals provided by Aziz, who plays in former Stone Roses lead singer, Ian Brown's band!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the cars and the music - even the 3 American acts they allowed to play -poke-

See you there ;)

Probably because of the 4 bands I listed, those were 3 of them. I do like Squeeze a lot. Of the rest, some I would find interesting and I did enjoy their music, specially UB40, banarama, Deep Purple is reaching way back. But I would not fly somewhere to see them.

I have flown to other cities to see Alice Cooper back in the day (crazy times... but I would not do that now). I can see most of the older bands at the local casinos. Saw Blondie last year at a Casino. Saw Alice Cooper at another.

I saw Blondie at a casino too; she was in deep to the house just off the boardwalk at A City. No seriously, Squeeze were terrific, but as guitar player, I woulda gone anywhere to see the Tommy Bolin version of D Purple. But that aint gonna happen. Two summers ago, I went to London purely to see Jeff Beck. That was expensive. But worth it.

(Love Paul Weller, my band covers two of his songs, and it's easy to play 6 degrees of Paul Weller!)

Manufacturers usually provide the press with a detailed press release regarding new product so that they can prepare headlines to accompany the official release. All these internet blogs and sites get the provided pics and info a week or so before release and so many ignore the embargos on the release date, so expect something about this car a little earlier than that!

I mention this because apparently, Lotus is having their global launch of Eagle a week or so before the auto show and although I am aware of the press launch before the auto show, it was my understanding that ALL franchise Lotus dealers (except U.S.) would attend this thus, pictures being available before the show however, I'm sure you're right and Lotus has invited certain people from the media to actually be there for this event.
