Do you think they will do another UK tour?

Postby Ritz-To-The-Riot » Sun Apr 29, 2007 10:26 pm

Do you think they're gonna do another UK tour somewhen round the end of the year?? But where people can actually buy tickets rather than by a ballot? I hope so.

I'm pretty sure they will do more dates in the UK, otherwise it's a shit "tour".

I expect they announced a small amount of dates to test the ballot thing, which didn't work one ounce.

They will surely do another tour of the UK and north america like for the first album...

Not really, it's true, how can 10 announced shows be a tour when two of them are in London and two in London?

It's part of their mainstream approach. They don't need to tour the UK, why would they? They know the album will hit number 1 anyway.

i think they should do it the way they did the copenhagen gig where you had to buy tickets at the venue. That way if you really want a ticket, just show up early. and then the left over tickets (if there are any) can be purchased on the internet or something. I know people who live far away from the venue might think it's stupid, but if it's a tour then most peope should have a fair chance of getting a gig near their town.

then the touts get all of them! trust me that is not the way to do it.

and arctic, your right, there approach this year is not like, how should we call it.....pre-o'malley? i think its got to the stage now where i stop seeing them, as i have finally realised what its like in the AM camp. there not putting the fans first. if they had played say a venue like ally pally which holds 10000, that would of been good for the fans and a sign that the monkeys are putting fans first instead of sales, but that would also mean a lot of people including myself would not go, because i hate big venues, bigger than brixton anyway.

Maybe, i don't know, it didn't seem that way in copenhagen... maybe its different in the uk, or maybe i just didnt spot the touts...

Poor Nick, gets all the blame... :milton:

I think more secret-ish shows are the way, announcing them late aswell as dates scheduled early.

If I knew the band were playing in Sheffield like a day or two before they were and tickets were available on the door the day before or somehting, I'd think it was better.

At least then if I missed out on tickets because I was busy or something I'd put it down to my bad luck, rather than allowing a computer to decide whether I'm worthy of going or not.

thats what i thought... poor guy... :roll:

i have to admit the ballot thing was laaaaaaaaaaaaame. Buying the tickets on the venue is not such a bad idea... i understand your reasons scott but i think it' s not so stupid.
But what do you reckon? more venues in fewer capacities?

I agree they should keep to small venues, but play 2 or 3 nights in a row.

And I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with the fact Nick is in the band... :roll: :wink:
