      FUCK!  only 2 U.S. shows :(
       
      Ok... so hows this for an itinerary? 
      9/6 ---> Fly to NYC for FC
      9/7 ----> 2:40am train to Boston, transfer to Manchester.. arrive at noon. Check into hotel, take a nap... then opening night of the RUSH tour. 
      9/8 ---> Fly home.   
       
      UGH.. this is gonna be expensive.  Think I'm going to have to sacrifice RUSH in CBus to pull this off.

        Damn it! Only 2 shows in USA and no one near Mexico...
         
        I wish we were Europe... Beardfish and Flying Colors.

          Hardly the case dude...
          In fact, It was originally ONLY a European tour as Steve ONLY had X amount of time available (he is at the mercy of Deep Purple and G3 schedules) and I twisted his arm to add a few more dates to add a couple of US shows as I knew we HAD to play at least both coasts...
          Sorry....we did our best....hopefully if we're not coming to you, you can come to us!

              Hmmm... 40 miles from Disneyland. I wonder if I can convince my wife that a trip to The Park in September is a good idea...

                Here's hoping I can scoop up a few NYC tickets before they sell out next Friday!

                  ok... if I can figure out something to do with my suitcase and laptop bag while at the FC show I think I'm going to do it. 
                   
                  any NYC natives have suggestions?   is there a bag check at Penn Station maybe?

                        Going to the LA show for sure. I'll be in disguise.

                          Damn.  I was hoping for somewhere in the Mountain states or TX. 
                          2 US shows, 6 in Germany.  What's that about?
                          Sounds like MP had to work it just to get the US shows added. 
                          I wonder if it's that much more lucrative doing shows in Europe or if SM's tour schedule just dictated things.   I wouldn't be surprised if the exchange rate has a bit to do with the amount netted from a Euro show, since the US politicians' habit of spending like drunken sailors has driven down the worth of the US$.

                            Will be at NYC.  Good for Jolly too.  Saw them play a show at 1 am to a crowd of 5 people.  This should be a better chance of pace for them.

                              It's a decent size place and I've seen much bigger bands not sell out there so I don't think you have to worry.
                               
                              I will definitely be there.  Can't wait!!!

                                  and to all of the lovely forumers in NYC...fuck you!  You always get ALL of the shows. 
                                   
                                  Seriously though, have a great time but please take some pictures and decent videos for the rest of us sorry saps that don't live near the greatest city in the world.  I'll try to stop sobbing and get out of the fetal position on the floor.

                                        Actually, the Euro worsens things over here. Metallica were about to tour in 2012 but things ought to be too expensive because of the Euro.
                                         
                                        But you're right, 6 Germany dates is a lot. Thank God I'm German

                                          Looks like another road trip in order for the 6th of September!  Psyched for sure!

                                            Actually, the Euro worsens things over here. Metallica were about to tour in 2012 but things ought to be too expensive because of the Euro.

                                            But you're right, 6 Germany dates is a lot. Thank God I'm German 


                                            Hope you get to one of the shows...you lucky German bastard!!!

                                              Nice! After those comments you made earlier I didn't expect such an extensive Euro tour (particularly here in Germany).

                                                  I love that they're playing at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London - that's a popular venue for ex-pat New Zealanders!

                                                    Nearly zero interest in seeing Flying Colors, but Beardfish... damn.
                                                     
                                                    Do Beardfish do headline solo tours in the UK? I'd be fine seeing them somewhere smaller.

                                                      80 dollars is a bit high for me right now, especially just shelling out for Rush. I don't blame the band for the price, I just can't swing it. Love to see them down the road.

                                                        Wow $80 is crazy. The New York show is $29.50 so it's a no brainer for me but $80 seems very high.

                                                          Damn.  I was hoping for somewhere in the Mountain states or TX. 
                                                          2 US shows, 6 in Germany.  What's that about?
                                                          Sounds like MP had to work it just to get the US shows added. 
                                                          I wonder if it's that much more lucrative doing shows in Europe or if SM's tour schedule just dictated things.   I wouldn't be surprised if the exchange rate has a bit to do with the amount netted from a Euro show, since the US politicians' habit of spending like drunken sailors has driven down the worth of the US$.


                                                          Deep Purple is much bigger in Europe than the USA. So, they tour there much more... Considering MP said the tour was determined by Steve Morse's schedule, that's why there are a lot more Flying Colors European dates.

                                                            I'm going to buy a ticket for NYC when they go on sale next week and worry about figuring out travel as it gets closer. 
                                                            It's gonna be fun... land in NYC, hit the FC show and then hop onto a train to New Hampshire for RUSH the next night.

                                                                Awsome timing.
                                                                My last night in NY before I explore the rest of the country.
                                                                Do you think there will be some sort of Meet and Greet package available?
                                                                I've met Mike and Steve before, but I think this would probably be my only chance in this lifetime to meet Neal Morse.

                                                                  I've been there a couple of times and it's a real cool place.  It's basically all General Admission, but there is a seated section in the back that's first come first serve.  The general admission is two levels, the first level is the floor up to the stage.  Then I'd say maybe 50 feet back is a section up a little bit.  Probably about 4 feet above the lower section.  As I myself am short, both times I went I was right at the front of the upper level of the standing section which provided a perfect view.
