May 6th Royal Festival Hall in London would have been nice as 15th anniversary of the reunion concert in 2005

They can't stop, can they? I thought "Do Not Disturb" was some kind of goodbye... I also thought putting together a new album is maybe easier at the age of 70+ than touring, so this raises some hope that there even will be another album!?
Gotta think it over, I may just decide to return to the UK on that occasion, assuming they still accept non British EU citizens in their country. Wink

I wont be at any of those, but good to see them still going forward. 
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Hi,

It's a shame that the world in the West Coast in America will never get to see a PH or VdGG ... ever again. And I'm not sure that they can garner enough fans to have a decent show in this side of the country and be appreciated, instead of 74 fans showing up at a bar in Portland, and PH have to spend the night in someone's couch, because a hotel, or whoever is driving, is tired and needs a rest!

Gawdddd, sounds like a PH song already! But yeah, I'm resigned to never see one of my favorite musicians and poets in my life. The one that "mattered" to me. And I will shed my tears when the time comes, and post a poem or two ... as the only thing I can do. Shed another tear ... ohhh, I forgot ... tears in the rain ... gone forever in the ocean of life!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

Well... he's always drawn pretty well on the west coast (especially L.A.) and the guy is well off enough to stay in really nice hotels. In Chicago, he stayed at the Belden Stratford during a solo stop in 2008 -- very ritzy. Unlike some other old timers (i.e. Nik Turner), he's not the kind of person who'd do a tour / gig where he's sleeping on someone's couch, etc (I actually chuckled a bit at the thought!)

There have been a few people ... and Patrick Moraz came to mind, that did this and basically, even played on people's homes on their piano. It's a nice concept and if I had the money I would probably pay for the band to come over for a concert in my living room, and and pay them more than they ever got on a concert, not to mention first class accommodations and the like on the trip!

Alas ... I can't do stuff like that ... but I would in a heartbeat ... and VdGG would not be the only one.
