VERY interesting...this must be the tip of an iceberg or two...I just scoped all relevant Telephones, Polysics, EMI, and Sony websites, but nobody is confirming the Paradiso ticket listing...I'm sure it will come soon, and details of more likely tour dates in other cities in the Euro-zone / and perhaps N. America...In any case, I'm within striking range of "Am-Dam" - but, should this likely turn out to be a multi-city tour, then I'll take the path of least resistance, and attend at a nearby venue...

GREAT work Taopriest! 

Very exciting news! In context, I believe that Polysics in recent times has been an opening act for The Telephones in Japan, so if they're riding on those coattails for this tour so-be-it - but like all P-fans, I believe the Poly-Trio has enough action to headline, but hey, that will play itself out! Just JAZZED at the prospect of them reaching out to us non-Land-of-the-Rising-Sun folk!

It's really weird because there is no information else. I looked at "Ticketmaster" andy they also list this event. On sale since 18th May. I can't figure out how they sponsor this. 11 € (14 US-Dollar) for an evening with both?

They're performing very often lately on same events.

Recently also in Taiwan.

Eleven Euros sounds like a small-medium club ticket price - When Polysics last passed through Europe  (2009) tickets were about the same price - they played a 350 seat/stand/dance venue in my village. 

The strangeness of just the one venue - and no info anywhere else, suggests to me that this event was perhaps an unintentional "leak". I mean, maybe the logistics are being laid out for a tour, and somehow somebody released the ticket information on a local level - say the Paradiso in Amsterdam without intending to.

Taopriest, I think you may have what in journalistic circles is referred to as a "scoop" on a hot story. Unless this is part of some government funded cultural event (I doubt it considering the bands and the venue and no info about a "Japanese Cultural" event taking place in Holland at that time), then it seems close to certain in the imminent future we are going to be hearing announcements of a "world" or "Euro" tour...

By the way Taopriest - thanks for posting the rather rare image of P with The Telephones in Taiwan - I say rare because this is the first time I've seen the trio in orange haz-mat jumpers - I mean since they became a trio...do you know of any other occasions that they have appeared since re-forming in colors other than gray?

Oh yeah, there was the show(s) with the tropical paradise outfits - but other than that...

They returned to their orange overalls. You will see it often now.

Thanks Taopriest for the orange suit thread link - guess I must have missed that one...I wonder if that is just further indication of off-the-islands tour plans - the orange outfit being kind of a "brand"...

Re: POLYSICS x the telephones in Amsterdam [2013.09.16]

And soon, they'll be back in the States.....!! I'm already planning to catch the show that's either in NC or VA (maybe even both)!

I don't post here much anymore but I still have a fond appreciation for Polysics. Hit me up on Twitter @west_haven if you really wanna talk to me smile

Re: POLYSICS x the telephones in Amsterdam [2013.09.16]

Enticing info west_haven! It sounds like you might have some info regarding a USA tour - could you please share what you have?  Maybe a link(s) where one can find out more?

Re: POLYSICS x the telephones in Amsterdam [2013.09.16]

Oh man this is good news. Haven't seen them since 2010. I need some live Polysics. If so I hope to see them in Austin and Dallas again if they keep to their normal US tour route. The last show I saw in Dallas was incredible and got to talk to Fumi for 30 minutes...

I worded that wrong. Whatever show that's GOING to be in NC or VA, I will go to. They have been to NC in the past, so I am hoping that they come back. And if I had info, I'd post it. I'd scream it from the roof tops.
