    I just booked a non-refundable room at 6 different 5 star hotels for every night in September just to be covered.
    Hope this is true
    Nice!  GA or bust right?
    Of course and I don't  have one of those smarty phones so I'll  need one of the boys to print the tickets for me.

    Wait... I thought people are only supposed to drop subtle hints when they have show info and make people guess for weeks about tour dates?
    Only when you want to flex that you have inside information and tease out information, like you’re part of the band or something.

    Is the united center in downtown Chicago or in the suburbs?

    Is it really necessary to take backhanded shots at Dimi? He's given hope to a lot of people around here when things were quiet and probably saved a lot of people some money too.

    It amazes me that people are surprised Dimitris doesn't post a list of shows and dates right away.  If he did the Mods would shut the thread down and ban him, and then his source would likely not give him info.  He releases just enough hints that apparently don't piss off the mods.

    Both.

    Only other arena they could play is the All State Arena near O'Hare but they only played there one time in 2000.

    I just don’t get why the information has to be teased out.  He spends weeks dropping hints until people have guessed the entire schedule. Why not just post the info?  The end result is the same.

    I would love to see them play at the new Wintrust Arena, right by McCormick Center.   But that wont happen.

    Yep. Could not agree more.

    It’s ok to have two different opinions. Nothing personal. 
  • on2legson2legs The Jersey ShorePosts: 9,009
    I’m not knocking the guy.  I’m just really confused with why his source is okay with him dripping out the info as opposed to just posting it.  

    As far as the earlier comment about him giving people hope and saving people money... the OP just accomplished the same thing with one post.

    It’s a cool arena for sure. Not as loud as the old Chicago Stadium but it’s a damn good venue for a sporting event or concert.

    Apropos of nothing, those last United Center shows were part of the super random pre-Backspacer 2009 tour. The band was in their third country and on their second continent of the week. Something to keep in mind when trying to predict routing.

    Probably because some shows aren't finalized and schedules change by the time the announcement is made.   Was that way with Prague/Germany (German got a second show) and the order changing with Amsterdam last for Europe. 

    I think there is a difference between leaking everything one month before an announcement and versus a week before. 

    Do you honestly think the Mods would be okay with him posting the entire schedule?  Maybe his contact is limiting what he can post.  Who knows.  Either way we know more than we would without him.

    Would recommend staying downtown to enjoy the city . . .  Not sure the train gets you there, but plenty of uber and cabs to go around.  worth the trip. Chicago in September can be awesome weather wise.  Depending which week, all kinds of crazy trips you could tie in if your game.  Notre Dame or Wisconsin fooball, Cubs or Sox game, etc
