From the guy who posted the news :D :

How sure am I of the FOTC info? On a scale of 1-10. I'd say 10. I'd be shocked if it doesn't occur.

Hello, there! Looking forward to the U.S. micro-tour? (Two dates is all, I hear.)

Laura, do you think they'd go for a different (bigger) venue if/when they come back to The D? I hope not. The Fox seemed to be the limit in terms of being able to enjoy a show of their's.

Have there been concerts at Ford Field? :D

Who needs Europe when you've got California?! If there are only California shows and nothing in Texas, I'm totally there too if it's at all possible. :D

I wouldn't go if it was at Ford Field (unless I was in the first few rows). I do believe there is a size in which their show becomes less effective. For big names like Elton John or Bruce Springsteen, I think it works. But for a group that's supposed to be comedy first and music second, I think you lose something playing to a huge screaming crowd.

That said, I'd totally go to UC Berkeley (I think I could get the whole trip for about $900, including tickets, hotel, merch, etc etc) with a seating of 8,000. Also, I'm curious to know where the 2nd date is supposedly going to be.

He is the music critic for Oakland Tribune , the Contra Costa Times, and the San Jose Mercury News. Who his sources are I do not know.

Only two dates, huh? I hope the second one is in Kentucky! :lol: If it is you can all stay at my house. Some of you might have to sleep in the cupboard, though.

If it's only 2 shows, it'll probably be a show in Berkeley and a show in Los Angeles. Or maybe 2 shows in Berkeley, like last year.

Ooh, so much to absorb! :yay:
Since my birthday is June 7, it could work as a present to myself, couldn't it? :eyelashes:
It'd have to be a short, quick trip to Berkley because of upcoming summer shows with the youth theater, but I'd love to make it happen. Still lots to consider....but I wanna go! :nod:

I saw Eminem there once. I'd have to agree with Kelly, that would just be too big for them. And Cobo, and the Palace....I think places like the Fox should be the limit.

Trouble is that I guess the current demand forces them to play bigger places. I just feel lucky to be seeing them in a place that holds 1,500 in May. That will be be by far the smallest place I've ever seen them in.
