    Not many east coast fans interested, but WA/ID/OR seem willing to make the trip.

    Only a few states left to complete the U.S.   How about playing a new city/state instead of the usual larger cities.

    thanks!    I would travel to NH for a show.  We'll see if Miss. WV and Delaware are considered down the road.  I think Anchorage will happen before the other four.

    Honestly everything in Mississippi is concert halls. The only venue I can think of where the band could play would be Biloxi's Mississippi Coast Coliseum. They usually hold a yearly music/crawfish fest around that venue, as well as have the occasional tour come through every couple of months.

    A couple of years ago, Gulfport Music Fest was getting massive rock headliners like Sublime with Rome, Shinedown, The Offspring, Smashing Pumpkins, Third Eye Blind, 311, and Kid Rock with some good rap headliners like Cypress Hill, Ludacris, and Wiz Kahlifa thrown in there for good measure. Gulfport is only 20 minutes away from Biloxi on the coast there. They unfortunately shut down after 2014 because year after year rain would hit and cause massive chaos. I remember going to in 2013 to see AWOLNATION specifically and it just sucked. It rained all day and AWOL only got to play 7 songs when they should have played at least 12. The fest actually just got revived for fall 2017 and the headliners are 3 Doors Down, Cracker and Fuel with the rap headliners being Ludacris, Shaggy, and Quad City DJ's..... Yikes :s

    I don't think bookers and promoters like to book/tour through Mississippi. Thats like the only venue in the state of Mississippi I can think of that can fit a big enough band like PJ without it being a massive College football stadium. You also have to take into account how close bigger markets are. New Orleans is only an hour away from Biloxi, Mobile Alabama is an hour away (Which by the way they have never played), and Birmingham is 4 and half hours away. Thats probably why they have never come through Mississippi.

    That's unfortunate for Mississippi.  Not many larger cities in WV, NH, or Delaware.  In the west, ND, SD, MT, ID have limited options for new places to play.  I would like to see Casper, Boise, and Bozeman get a show.  There are enough people within a half-day drive to sell-out.
