    Didn't some say the same for 2016? We got 0/4 of those then

    But we did get a couple Wrigley shows. So, I guess I sounds like we're in for a couple more Wrigley shows then. Saaaweeet!

    I think it's not so much about money as it is about, how big of a burden would it be to communicate with these loyal fans? It's doable. We will continue to pump cash into what's become a merchandise operation but it would be so noble to give some heads up to what's going on, what's coming up and so on. It's a given they don't have to, but it's not an insane request. 
    Completely agree.

    They're humans, they're artists, they're an enormous rock band. I imagine a lot goes into making any official announcement, even one saying "hey, nothing happening anytime soon." 

    As a fan, I take no news as nothing happening in the near future. They can wake me up if that changes.

    Hanging on one band is a tough spot to be in. I preach diversifying one's interests. If there are many bands you enjoy, someone is always going on. Think of the poor Tool fans who see two-term Presidents come and go between albums.

    Speaking as a child of the 90's...most of my favorite bands are dead, broken up or dormant.  Personally, I do have younger bands I love and seeing them in smaller venues has been awesome.  The older bands have forced me to find new loves.

    What I find hard about that, is big bands that were around before the 90's are still going.  The Stones, U2, Springsteen, Metallica, GNR, etc....   It always feels like our bands got cut way too short.   Was really expecting the bigger ones to go the distance :(

    The upside is most definitely, that it's our band from the 90's that's going the distance.  I do feel pretty lucky that my favourite band keeps going and going.

    That's what makes it so infuriating when talent is wasted (RAGE AGAINST THE FUCKING MACHINE! and Tool). No reason RATM shouldn't be together when the world truly needs their voice, but they of course have their reasons, it just sucks. Then there is the meh bands like +Live+ who I would go see in a decent venue in Chicago, but I'm not traveling for them or paying $100 in an amphitheater.

    Off the top of my head, 311 and Clutch are really the only 2 bands I've been into for 20+ years who are slugging it out consistently. Greg Dulli, too, if you count all of his projects. Pearl Jam, Tool, and Radiohead have a slower pace these days even though they've been (technically) continuously active.

    Most bands just slow down or break up. If you want to keep a steady concert calendar, no choice but to keep your ears and mind open.

    For a band the size of PJ, $20/year for the fan club is nothing.

    Since it's about 26 shows over 40 months and ticket access is the number one 10c draw, it's  literally almost $20 for nothing.

    You really are only paying for the right to buy more stuff. Which isn't bad if you're able to take advantage of the ticket benefit. Otherwise, the Deep PDF is the only tangible item included.

    Lots of comments in this thread about branching out and discovering new bands etc. Of course anyone who loves music will do that and I do. However, it's a hard pill to swallow when no other band compares to PJ. Not even fucking close. So, given that, and that the members of said band are all in good health and relatively young, no tours and no new album is just hard to take. This is especially true when you see bands like the Stones who, let's be honest, are basically corpses on stage now, still going like crazy! Come on guys!

    Seen them every year since 2003 (using hof as a stretch to do so) and this streak ends this year. I haven’t checked this website in over 2 months. It all just feels so different. 

    I was thankful to see a fenway show last year but even that felt different than say ‘13,’14, even ‘16. Festivals and stadiums are better than nothing but I’m not sure I’d even make the trek for them if that’s the only option in ‘20.

    The changes have been made as per your request. Should straighten up everyone's attitude and increase the number of accurate tour rumors for 2020. Additionally, the band will likely notice the improved morale within this thread and decide they would like to gift us with a tour.

    Got to be a huge year for them. Big east coast/west coast tour and new album. I will be shocked if this does not happen.

    Depends... their tours aren't generally big, but if an album drops, I'd expect something bigger than last summers tour.  Maybe a medium tour.  10 to 12 dates on each leg kind of thing.   I'm not sure the band has big tours in them.   I'd call big 25 shows on each leg, and a 3rd outside of north america.   That's big by PJ's standards and hasn't been done for a while.  Still kind of small when you think of their peers (Foo Fighters, Metallica, etc..) who seem to tour for years after a new album drops :)
