I'm as conflicted as many about the announced line-up, but I'm always interested in what Neil's doing. What p*sses me off is buying tickets for a gig hundreds of miles away (Manchester) and then a gig 10 miles away (Glasgow) is announced shortly after. My funds and access to babysitters are limited. Travelling to Manchester is a completely different prospect now that there is a full tour. I know it won't be possible to get all dates announced at the same time (though most of the time they are), but it feels dishonest to not put out a press release saying UK tour dates will be announced or larger tour announcement in the works).
I'm surprised at the size of venue, in Scotland at least. Anticipation was much higher for the 'Live on Earth' tour than now, and by Intriguer they'd dropped from a 10,000 to a 3,000 seater venue.
