    Flying to Paris for a day on the 27th before I hit Prague on the 28th! Can't wait! Haven't done any planning, needs to figure out what to see. Oops!
    The wife and I are flying to Frankfurt in 8 hours! Its going to be a wonderful vacation either way.  Hope Eddie is healthy enough to perform. Love the old continent.  Cheers everyone!
    Safe travels!!

    Hey @alesek @coach4tl , what was that place we went to two days before the show in 2012? We were sitting outside at some wooden tables and it was up on a hill somewhere. And I crashed someone's wedding by mistake on the way up :lol:

    I'm glad everyone is so confident this show is going to happen.  When someone loses their voice completely three shows in to a tour, I have my doubts that the rest of this tour is going to happen, but hopefully miracles happen and I get to see everyone in Prague.
    I’m not so confident either...Hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. We should know more by this time tomorrow.

    My friend and I want to bring some kind of inflatable chair/something for the Prague/Krakow/Berlin run so we can be somewhat comfortable in the queue for a few hours.  Obviously something that needs a pump is probably a no-go. 

    I've seen people using those weird things where the air catches them and they inflate, but if there's no wind will we struggle getting them up??

    They are apparently ok to get up without wind,  I'm taking one to seattle! For the euros I'm just taking a blow up cushion to sit on and hoping that does the job, as it will fold up super small

    This is a great idea for my wife and going to Wrigley. @The Rock  do they sell them in retail stores in Canada or do I need to order online?

    really depends on your banks exchange rates...  EURCZK is 25.900 at the moment. You can find good exchange offices in Prague where the rate could be around 25.500. So if your bank does it better, use your cards/withdraw ATM ... but doubt that.

    Yeah but don't they also charge fees? I tend to just withdraw money from a bank ATM when I travel, or use credit cards, rather than try to sort out which is a good money exchange office where I won't get ripped off. It's served me well :)
