Venus posted a list on page 1. No Tejas.

The nearest to me is on Staten Island, though I have no clue where that is.

Oh but there is: Concord, TX. Granted, it's population is only 28, but still, there is one in Texas. :lol:

I see the list of towns on Wikipedia has been updated now. Apparently there are many Concords in Texas:

Concord, Angelina County, Texas
Concord, Cherokee County, Texas
Concord, Houston County, Texas
Concord, Hunt County, Texas
Concord, Leon County, Texas
Concord, Liberty County, Texas
Concord, Madison County, Texas
Concord, McLennan County, Texas
Concord, Rusk County, Texas
Concord, Upshur County, Texas
Concord, Wood County, Texas

And several townships in the US.

You don't have to take the Wikipedia list as the definitive list though. There may be many more places called Concord out there. :)

I also just found out there's a place called 'Concord Ho' in Buckinghamshire, England :lol: and forget Central Park, there's 'Concord Park' in Sheffield, England ;)

AWESOME! They'll have to play all of those Texas Concords, right? :wink:
I would totally do a road trip throughout Texas to see all those shows.

Me too! Wouldn't that be great if they actually did that? It would be one helluva road trip. :D

Hah! That's funny, I'm from Boston and yep that's how it's said, lol. In fact it would never occur to me to pronounce it another way. That's not how you all say it? Must be one of those things, like Worcester. ;)

Yep! Bret also wrote that on a fan's ukulele :heart:

I saw a pic of a fan wearing this shirt at one of their concerts, Faith:

There probably are other versions of t-shirts with the same quote available on the net.

Iowa doesn't have a town named Concord, but it does have this:

http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Conco ... ocode=CITY

A park AND a street! It's perfect! It was *made* for this tour!

It's in Garner, IA, close to Clear Lake, IA, where the music died in 1959. Bretty, you could make new rock and roll history right there.
