    Truth is, none of us know.

    Optimistic view - They realise this tour was messed up so want to make it right next year and come back with different venues/pricing/planning to avoid sickness.

    Pessimistic view - Talk of insurance reasons may embargo certain countries, the band may want to rethink touring schedule

    All I can say is I missed all shows this tour and hope to get my fill of Dark Matter songs next time around so hope they still promote the hell out of it the next tour.
    I think I’m somewhere between the optimistic and pessimistic. I’d love for more arena shows in other cities, maybe even a stadium or two in the right place, but would definitely take another Hyde Park gig at this point.

    Shame you missed out on the DM songs. I had a ticket for London, but was fortunate enough to have been at Manchester too. I thought ‘Dark Matter’ particularly sounded huge.
    Impossible to notice how energised the band looked playing the new stuff, especially RR and scared of fear...
    Hope you mean „not to notice“ 😌
    indeed, its very very clear they LOVE playing the new songs

    I hope the learning part doesnt involve not coming back because I plan to never miss a barca show again after sat. Just wish I could be there tonight

    Heard so much about papered(?) KISS concerts in the 80s that I felt warm inside seeing the Barcelona arena being cut in half tonight

    Don't sell yourself short. Nick Cannon is 43 and he just insured his for $10 million.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    Crazy.  I do kind of like that Europe is pushing back more against high ticket prices than we are here in North America.   Albeit I think it's starting to happen here too.   Didn't think I'd see the day where the pushed prices a little too far.  Up to now, people kept gobbling them up.

    Having seen two shows, I do understand the many arguments in this thread and understand the cost is high but I am still in the mindset that those shows were worth every penny I paid and a lot more. They were phenomenal and we had such an amazing time. They will no doubt be the best shows I see all year and for that I am always grateful. 

    I cant wait for next time, and if the costs are even higher I'll pay it gladly. 

    Being a football fan we will regularly pay £60 for 90 minutes of football (in the north of course) and its often dreadful and barely qualifying of entertainment. When put next to those shows I witnessed on this leg, everything is in perspective. 
    good point.
    I have spend 40€ for a game two years ago. A relegation battle game short before the end of the season. What I get was lousy entertainment - two crappy teams almost without any noticeable skills, performed by overpaid people on the field - at least a 1:1.
    Result: What a waste of money I thought - still had that in mind days later.
    Edit: further 40€ plus 20€ for a kid ticket were not paid by me but wasted too.

    At 160£ / approx. 200€ I hit the Go - button to check Manchester‘s brand new CoopArena (especially build for concerts - loud ones;) + PJ in there.
    Result: crazy price I think but
    less than 1€£ wasted.

    No
    last day on board
    was 1 Week on vacation here
    I understood your post from July 2 to mean that it will be your "last day on board" here in the forum. I was already looking forward to it. But now it's July 9th. And you're still here. Or have I misunderstood something?

    Good News!

    I think the day is close now.
    I’ll stay for Madrid and Portugal.
    Then quick returns for the 202X UK-Tour at best >>>

    Zen23, how much would you pay for your ticket / at what price would you shot your ticket on screen to enter the barn gig (capacity 700) at the waterfront in Norwich ?
