Ok. If we look at the dates for the tour we see that Brixton kicks off the tour if you don't count 46664 (I think that's what it is). Then they're away in Italy or somewhere so what I am saying is that to be the only UK date?

As far as I'm aware, the tour will continue in the UK immediately after Brixton - US plans are only tentative at the moment.

Actually the UK tour will not continue directly after Brixton as they are playing a gig in France on 30 March. It looks like most of the UK tour dates will be in May.

I'm sure they will end in UK, indeed after Hamburg! I think inbetween Frankfurt and Dortmund there will be two shows in Holland and maybe Belgium. After Hamburg I'm guessing they will go to Dublin, then some UK dates and finish things off in London...

I'm afraid a US tour will only come to being if the tour in Europe goes VERY VERY well and they realy can't resist going on... (But unfortunately for our American friends, I'm afraid they don't give the impression they realy want to do the US... :-S

It's okay Jeroen...the US fans are used to getting the short end of the stick. But hey, we did end up getting WWRY in Vegas now did'nt they?

Surely they will play quite a few more slots in the UK in May...or perhaps they will take a month off to recoup and then attack the UK with some stunning Summer gigs! More then likely, they will return to the UK from wherever the last EU show is...and when they do i for one will be waiting for them!

From what I can make out unless the tour is going to be in 2 halfs then the UK dates must be between 29Apr (last German date) and 20 May (PR is doing solo shows in the US from 21May). Thats about a 3 week period which is prob about right for the UK/Ireland (Germany is 2 weeks long).

If I'm right about 29 Apr - 20 May then this clashes with the convention. Would they really perhaps be doing a gig in say Birmingham or Manchester on the 7 May when the real die hard loyal fans are holed up in Prestatyn??? I think the ballroom could be pretty empty that night. OR could it perhaps be fuller than usual because the best live band in the world is playing??????

Is it normally expensive...I mean Royal Albert Hall? The Who was there coupple of years ago and the show was really good. What about Hammersmith, any thoughs?

It makes sense to end a European tour in the UK.
Dates to be announced I image will be UK and Scandanavia. Holland/Belgium must be due a gig as well. Think if they do a US that will be saved for the Summer.

I hope its Hammersmith, it's a really nice venue. More likey to be Albert Hall / Earl's Court but it's all speculation obviously.

I would guess that they will play Prague, Hungary and possibly Athens too - they'll need to milk this one for as much as possible.

I wonder whether they'll do the Middle-East and / or Africa too - what a global phenomenon!
