I still think (and hope) that they'll round off this tour with some sort of London gig.

Considering, flying from Hannover Tuesday night after teaching, staying in Manc, train to Blackpool and flight back to Hamburg on Thursday before teaching

To be fair it makes a welcome change for southerners to be having a moan. :mrgreen: It's almost always us northerners having to schlep down to London, Hyde Park, Royal Albert Hall or wherever. Welcome to our world. :mrgreen:
Exactly, only pain that's in the middle of the week

Really happy about the Blackpool gig! Hour and a half down the road for me, and it'll be great to see them in a smaller venue before Hyde Park.

I'm certainly not moaning. The fans further north deserve this. Obviously I'd love there to be more dates nearer me, but I'm quietly confident that will happen. I suspect I'll be too busy at work to justify the time to myself, but if I decide to go for it come Friday in a moment of madness, it'll be Blackpool for me.

How big is this Welsh venue?

I've decided to go there and to the Barras. I'd imagine the Barras will be a scramble for tickets, sure it only holds 1800.

Thinking about making the trip up from London, never been to Barrowlands but all my Scotttish mates tell me it's the business.

Brilliant venue mate. Seen a lot of gigs at the Barras.

My worst fears are confirmed and the warm-up dates are terribly inconvenient for me. :( :( :(

I'll have to wait until they announce a proper tour. Because there will be a tour, right? RIGHT??

Anyway, glad for all of you who can attend!

Exactly my thoughts. Keep telling myself a midweek jaunt from London to Blackpool is madness, but at the back of my head I'm planning logistics...
