    Default Obviously there's going to be more dates...right?

    It doesn’t technically say “more dates soon” or anything of that nature on the official site or press release, and by the way people (like in Utah) are talking they think these are the only tour dates for the entire tour. That can’t be the case. Am I right? Does anyone know the answer? I’m sure I speak for the vast majority of people here who are going to multiple shows (and preferably would like to spread them out) when I say we need to know either way soon! I don’t need to know “when” they would be coming to Ohio, but at least know that they are at some point.

    At least going by larger cities (I just went by cities with sports teams), here’s who’s missing:

    Newark/East Rutherford, Baltimore, Miami, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Seattle, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco.

    Granted, some of those are close enough (St. Paul/Minneapolis, Oakland-San Jose/San Francisco), but that’s still pretty weird. Not to mention how fucked you are if you live in any of the states west of the Mississippi outside of CA, AZ, TX, MO, CO, or WA. What about that huge part of the country with the Dakotas, Montana, Iowa, Wyoming, Nebraska, Utah, etc.? And they couldn’t possibly be skipping ALL of Ohio.

    Plus the 45-city-factor. Here’s a list of all their tours since the ‘90s and how many dates were scheduled.

    ’91-’92 F*CK: 99
    ’93 LRHRN: 63
    ’95 BAL 131
    ’98 VH3: 95
    ’04 TBOBW: 86
    ’07-’08 Reunion: 79
    ’12 ADKOT: 45?????

    Thank God Pittsburgh’s on there…

    If anyone knows for sure or at least has a pretty good idea of the answer, please respond. Thank you.

    They very well could add more dates and I am guessing they will. I don't know that the number of shows on previous tours will play into it or not. I noticed they don't have any back to back dates so far on the tour. We can either assume they have left gaps so they can drop a 2nd date in a city if it is deemed needed or they have left the gaps for the purposes of not buring out Dave's voice. 45 does seem a little lean. Maybe they will do the 45, head overseas and come back and do some more. We wait and see...

    Man I sure hope they come to Salt Lake City this time around. They totally blew off the fan base here on the last tour which was odd as they sold out here in the past. So far relocating to Utah from the Motor City has been painful for good tours coming through the valley up until last summer when things brightened up for a while.

    Definitely B...and possibly C.

    I don't remember too many back-to-back nights on the '07/'08 tour and the general consensus then was the tour was scheduled that way to give Dave's voice ample rest between shows.

    I don't know about the summer Europe circuit (a lot of those rumors are getting squashed in other threads), but I would almost bet my mortgage a second US leg will get announced in May or June.

    Didn't they do this last tour, too? Announce the Sept-Dec '07 shows, only to come back later and announce the '08 dates?

    Finally, Omaha has ALWAYS had a tour stop. They don't have one on this first leg, and I've heard from people connected with the Quest Center/CenturyLink/whatever it's named now that late October has been blocked off for VH.

    ...just what I've heard...

    It has been strongly rumored they are playing Europe in the summer, maybe they then come back and do some another leg.

    But they aren't getting any younger.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    They did wait a bit to schedule that second leg in 07-08. And they spaced the shows out.

    There was speculation at the time that it was to rest Dave's voice, and to keep Eddie on an even keel in his recovery. Both reasons are still valid, if there was ever any truth to them.

    I hope they record some shows and make a proper "LIve" album and then extend the tour to support that as well. Like they did with the F.U.C.K. tour. But like I said make a proper live album not some studio live album.
