Topic: UK Sept/Oct 2008

I say this needs a new topic. I'll update the first post as any new info comes in.

Silly Hiro, there's nothing on Myspace or the website big_smile

So far we have...

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

agh! i nearly had a heart attack of excitement.
i might get a t-shirt made up...
hope dates are announced soon. i'm off to aus in 4 weeks and if they haven't announced dates before then i'm gonna freak out, because my brother will be hopeless at finding out!

???!

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

Actually sorry, yeah it might have looked from the title like this thread was going to have all the dates announced big_smile
I think that little video got me excited, not quite sure what it's intended to be used for. Some bloke from NME seemed to be getting random vids at Summer Sonic.

i know alex hoban, the guy who uploaded that. well, he went to my uni and was in a band so i kind of know him. grrr

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

So does everyone still expect that they will announce dates for UK, yes? Maybe a London-Brighton weekend in October?

I'm now worried that they have yet to and am now very hyped about seeing them - I just watched Now Is The Live! for the first time and it was incredible! big_smile

May have to book for France on a weekend I'm not working, then hope for UK in October..

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

They HAVE to do more UK dates. It would be too much of a waste not to. They've said they're announcing more dates and I can only guess that they're having trouble confirming which venues they're playing. I can get four days off work so I'm ready for four UK gigs big_smile

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

Nice one. big_smile If they do another weekend like last year that you and Guy went to (London-Brighton), I'll go to both whatever the cost.

F##k it, might just go to France as well! big_smile

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

i sure hope you're right mark, it'll be pointless for them not to book more shows.
either way, i might have to dust off the ol' poly suit!

Depending on the venue, i haven't decided about the London show, i really didn't like the one at Islington Academy so i might miss it if they're playing there again.

Also for the Brighton show, whoever went to the one at the Barfly, it has now closed down so they will be back at Concorde2

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

i know that when they first were sorting out the tour they had about 20 european dates that they were trying to book.

but I would have thought if they had more shows, something would have cropped up by now.

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

Don't say that Lloyd, we must remain totally positive big_smile

"We'll inform you as soon as additional show and details are fixed"

That's left me hopeful but still slightly worried. Whatever happens I have a new orange jumpsuit and I'm working on the bits for it.
Also Guy, I agree with you on the London show last time but the Brighton show blew it out of the water on all levels so it's all good big_smile

barfly was such an amazing gig though!!

Ill do london brighton again for sure ( well hopefully london london london brighton).

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

There's a US gig down for 19th October now, so there may be other UK dates between 27/9 and 19/10.. I think i'm gonna buy a ticket for This Ain't No Picnic on Saturday, and if they announce dates after then I may change plans.. hmm..

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

It's the Sunday that they're playing at This Ain't No Picnic. Don't get the wrong day! As time passes I'm edging ever closer to getting a ticket for that, I have someone who wants to go just for a random gig to go to.

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

By Saturday, I mean this coming Saturday I will fold and get a ticket for it (for the Sunday! big_smile) if they don't announce... lemme know if you buy a ticket and i'll follow suit.

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

Had a thought. The Madrid/Berlin/Majorca dates were announced about a week before the Madrid date.. Maybe the same will occur for a London/Brighton weekend..

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

I asked Hiro last night if there were to be any more UK dates - He and the merch girl both said No... sad

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

ARGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for doing that though dude! All I can think that means is they must be coming back just to the UK early next year for a good thorough tour. That's what my heart tells me anyway. I just booked a week off work from the 29th too just in case.

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

He did say next year for sure, dude. I said, "I guess with a new outfit, as its different with each album", he just smiled and lauged in his little Hiro way. big_smile

Re: UK Sept/Oct 2008

My tickets are booked. I texted Guy and Lloyd the bad news so we'll see if they decide to go too. It would be cool if all us UK guys were at the same gig...... but perhaps I'm a bit too hopeful about that big_smile

That'd be sweet. smile
