We did, we booked for Rome, (you'll see there is a blank day in the schedule between Verona and Marseilles) but then sometime later the guy in Rome came back to us and said he only wanted a Saturday night concert so cancelled...... then another venue in Rome got in touch with us and asked if we'd do it, Hooorah we said, oh, but he didn't actually want to pay us, he thought it would be good enough just to be there. ........... So, the short version of the story is, we really really tried to get a show in Rome, but it didn't happen :-(    Maybe next time.

Someone expects Pendragon to play in Rome for free? Confused

Tickets purchased for St Helens. Its great to have pendragon on this side of the penninesWink and great that there is a good progressive Audiance in the area,with Fish having 700+ in warrington last year which is only 8 miles or so from the Citadel,and many of the Audience were from Manchester and Liverpool,so it makes good sence to get a venue in the middle like St Helens,which I know will be a fantastic Gig,and if its full maybe the Parr hall in Warrington ,would be a good venue next time round and twice the capacity Big smile See You at the Gig Rachel ,really looking forward to it already and can't wait for the new album .
see you in St HelensWink

It can, and is a scheduling nightmare!   St Helens is 35 mins from Manchester, only and hour and a half from Sheffield and of course close to Liverpool.  
We kind of have to accept the prog isn't a massive pond, (and accept that both as a band and as punters!!!) and if we played St.H + Liverpool + Manchester + Sheffield we'd probably get in total not many different to the amount of folk who'll be at one of those shows, but of course it'd be 4 x the wages and expenses which sadly is not viable. in the pond we're in sometimes we have to make choices that wont always keep everyone happy, but we always try very hard to keep a happy medium. St Helens is certainly easier for those folk coming from afar than right in the middle of Liverpool or another big city. It has great transport links north, south east and west and is a fab little venue! :-) 

We're sorry we wont be in Leamington or Bilston on this tour, but we've not played in central London for over 8 years so it's kind of their turn, but again we hope that  people will see the last show of the new album tour in a fab venue worth the travelling to!

^^ I'm a little surprised myself; I would have thought there'd be a slightly larger fan base in either Rotherham or Wolves/ Bilston than St Helens, but maybe venues were already booked? I guess organising a tour can be a bit of a scheduling nightmare...

I first saw them at the Solem Bar at Manchester University circa 1983 and what a great gig that was.

About 10 serious proggies along with about 50-60 students who had no idea who they were and were just enjoying the cheap booze.

It would be nice if they could visit there again.
