and next : France !!!
Leeds for me !! Saves me having to go to London for High Volatge
Unfortunately, I'm on holiday for that whole week ! Including the High Voltage festival. I wonder whether there will be any Midlands or other London shows announced?
I'm looking at flying out to Hamburg. Got some family and friends there and get a chance to hear the new set list before they hit the UK! Maybe every cloud does have a silver lining
Great news. That'll save me a trip to London. Just one minor correction to your message on the Homepage, David. Glasgow is not a town in the 'North of England'. We can be a bit sensitive about things like that up here
Leeds - up the road, Glasgow - weekend date go stay with friends, Manchestr - weekend date - stay over on way back form Glasgow. Only issue would be Newcastle cos of work and not being able to get time off but the others are looking GOOOOOOD! News worrth waiting for and anybody who didn;t make the december shows - you are in for a treat!
I'll be at Manchester
Gonna get me some more of this...
Disappointing there's no Birmingham Academy show
Any more UK shows likely to be added?
Just bought a pair of tickets for BCC Glasgow - cannae wait!!!!!!
Glasgow tickets now in my in box................I am the mess-wen-ger....!
Going to buy 2 tickets for Leeds
£40 quid you could argue is a bit steep but not complaining!
BUT, having to pay £12.25 extra for so called service and delivery fee!! The tickets are being delivered electronically for gods sake, so where does that £2.25 come from?
And what 'services' justifies £10!?
Heads up... expect to hear some news tomorrow of some more UK dates for BCC
