Sounds pretty good. Too bad NYC is 11 hours from where I live. I've done such a ride to see a band but it was for Jethro Tull and even if I like The Flower Kings, they are not JT for me :P

EDIT : april fool.. my bad

Interesting news. NYC is only about 3-4 hour drive, but $60-350 seems kind of steep. I might go Smile

Oh, they will easily sell out the 20,000 seats if the recent concerts of Agents of Mercy attendance are anything to go by.  I would like to see them, but I'll be at the smaller Felt Forum (an amphitheater behind MSG) to see the live opera of Star Wars - The Phantom Menace by Jeff Wayne for opening night.

Well, now that you pointed it out... Madison Square Garden really doesn't sound to me like a tfk-kinda-venue


And, btw, wasn't it last april fools that the they announced on their website the band was officially over, removing the post a few days later?


I'm kinda lost here, really

If they would have said the theater at MSG it would have been a bit more believable, but The Flower Kings wouldn't even have the pull in Europe to play a venue the size of MSG, let alone in the states. Quite frankly I can't see this as anything other than a big April Fools joke.

Of course if they actually attempt this I'll be there.

What, am I chopped liver?  My ironic post was pretty high up in the queue!  Of course anyone familiar with MSG would spit their coffee out laughing at the idea of FK headlining there!

If there was any justice in this world TFK would be playing stadiums. It's a damn shame they don't have more followers, even among the prog community. They deserve it more than anybody.

In the meantime, theres the third Agents of Mercy album, a new Karmakanic album, Hasse's secret project, and whatever Tomas is doing. The Flower Kings reunion can wait as long as it needs to.

If you did not know already that the TFK playing MSG was not a joke then all you had to do was read the comments by Jonas Reingold in Roine's Facebook post to know it was a joke:

Jonas Reingold Roine, is this the show with Elvis and Janis Joplin in the choir? Or is it another show?

Jonas Reingold Will Dalai Lama do the merch or is it JFK?

Jonas Reingold I got an e-mail from Gollum, he got the ring and will try to get in for free

Just so you know, the 'Felt Forum' (where I saw Focus at my first ever concert in 1973) is now called 'The Theatre at Madison Square Garden.'

Yes, and 20,000 seats sold for TFK? I have my doubts.

Doubtful, but if it were the ONLY concert they put on, I dont know if they can sell at least most seats.... DT maybe, but I'm not sure about TFK

All one has to do is look at the date to know this is a hoax.

Also, Madison Square garden holds about 20,000 people which means the venue would have about 19,500 empty seats. :D
