Gwen, Wendy, Darren and Stephen, you all are the MVPs!!
You absolutely ROCK and so do so many of the incredible fans who literally took us along on the tour this year. We enjoyed meeting up with you in person! We loved talking to you on the phone. Conducting this year’s research and fan desires was made easy because of you and what an immaculate tour it was.
At least 3 nights a week we meditated and prayed for the fans, their travel, the band and for peace among us all. Being in a hotel room or suite with others for days on end can be taxing. But when you’re doing it to be with Tears for Fears it feels like the closest thing to heaven! We’re still on cloud nine when we think about the moments documented below. We had a great time on this tour because of your kindness and inclusiveness to all fans who put forth the effort to be present! You provided a service to those who are unable to leave their country and city due to reasons beyond their control with your pictures, resources and video. You made miracles happen by keeping us with you IRL and virtually! Thank you all! We can’t wait to do this again!
Fun Fan Moments in the Final Days of Tour 2019
York Race Course Centre – 26 July, 2019
Durham County Cricket Club – 27 July, 2019
ABC Supported Tears for Fears at this show and we’re so honoured to have been in their presence!
Colchester, United Kingdom – 28 July, 2019
Big thanks to all who were patient as we collected everyone’s pictures and stories. We had some hurdles to jump over, people had surgeries, were battling diagnoses and finding a way to push through pain in between shows, hats off to all of you. It’s time we used this pause to do our best to heal and get well. We’re so happy for these moments together and we want many more. Keep in touch throughout the year, this is another beginning of a long life together with Tears for Fears!
Tears for Fears Travel Fans, welcome to your life!
Be sure to continue to follow @tearsforfears and @curtsmith online! Let’s ALL stay in touch!
Dedicated to Lael, Valerie and Patricia – long time fans (over 20 years)
Snippet from Lyon
Europe was blessed with some absolutely incredible Tears for Fears shows this year. The reactions, reviews and full on dedication by so many fans to follow suit with more than one show must be acknowledged. Of course people have been going to multiple shows for many years but this time it’s documented, we know who is showing up and being present. It’s not easy to take off that much time from your job and head out on tour. For me, the moderator, that’s part of my contract when I take a role. I want the opportunity to be with my band. I’m not working toward much else so I admire those who make Tears for Fears a priority as so many of us have. What is the benefit? Healing! There’s no other way to put it. It’s HEALING! This band has healing properties in their music, the experience of seeing them live is equal to a miraculous visit from the heavens. Let the photos and videos speak for themselves. Huge thanks to Lael, Valerie and many others who kept in touch throughout the summer to share photos, keep us posted on meetups and truly created an incredible community that Tears for Fears can be proud of 365 days a year.
As shown in the schedule, Tears for Fears visited the following European cities: Luxembourg, Amneville, Bohn, Den Haag, Tilloloy, Rokslide Festival, Zottegem, Herouville-Saint-Clair, Rome, Lucca, Munchen, Bruchsal, Mainz, Nimes, Lyon, Charhaix, and Valencia. Please enjoy highlights from these shows and connect with other fans who shared the material to form tighter bonds. We are ONE TFF Fan Family!
There’s a lot of content here so please take a moment and let it load so you can enjoy it all. Cheers!
Special thanks to Mario from the Lucca show, Rita Durant (may you and your sister be well) and again huge thanks to Lael and Valerie for assisting so much for keeping in touch with us throughout the tour. Thank you Marie Lafleur for this great photo!
Tears for for Fears also spent a day in Tel Aviv – we appreciated Curt’s arrival photos and great pictures of the beach. It was beautiful!
*Dedicated to Gwen, Darren, Wendy, Tamara, Bobo and the amazing fans who did everything they could to be present at each UK show! Also a big shoutout to those who joined in online to celebrate Curt’s birthday!
Thanks Carri for creating the 2019 card.
The past 6 days have been filled with celebration as Tears for Fears’ fans in the UK and those who flew in from the Americas came together to enjoy shows at pristine, immaculate venues. People who’d never met before shared accommodations and cars to make sure they arrived present and accounted for visible to the band. Tamara even got a shout out from Good Man Curt after flying in from Minnesota. Poor baby, despite losing her dog to illness, she’s been literally flying around the world supporting them. She finds the shows very healing and comforting to say the least. This was her 5th or sixth show this year in 3 different countries. Gwen and Wendy are breaking records as well by going to 16 shows and Darren got the guys together for group hugs and hanging out. Members of the band joined in as you can see in the photo. Big thanks to Reverend Charlton Pettus, Ms. Carina Round and Drummer Genius Jamie Wollam for taking a moment out of your packed schedules for some fan hellos and handshakes. We live for this!
*It should be noted that Curt Smith came down with a TERRIBLE cold that he referred to as just a flesh wound. He sacrificed his health so he could perform for everyone. We owe him! He enjoyed a lovely birthday with his family on the 24th and we were happy to celebrate it virtually as a group.
For several fans this set of shows meant the world. Another hug fest broke out and people were loving on each other, their eyes filled with tears of joy – the band does that to people you know. They evoke emotions that are so strong and powerful, it’s difficult to write these synopsis and keep a dry eye. Tamara sums it up well.
Words from Tamara:
It’s been a short, eventful, educational, entertaining, emotional, healing and unforgettable experience! I am forever grateful and thankful to have had this opportunity to come over on such short notice. It was a pleasure to meet so many of you I see online often and put a face with a name. Also so wonderful to spend the past few days with two fabulous fans who take this stuff seriously! I have no idea how I am going to function on the little sleep with all the traveling and running around from city to city, standing in lines for hours and doing it all over again. I managed for 3 shows in a row. My travel mates are going to 16 of these and have already been to 13 so far. Wow! That’s dedication! We shared a lot of laughs and other shenanigans. Those I probably best not mention 😂 I will never forget the kindness by so many like I’ve known you forever. Many of us already share one commonality with our love and appreciation of Tears For Fears music, but I find with every person I meet and talk to, I have a deeper connection with them on some other level which just validates another sign that I was meant to come here. There were many signs on this trip for me. Some of you may or may not believe in that sort of thing. I was moved to the words of Woman in Chains as I expected I would be. This trip was booked only a week before I had to make the decision about my BoBo. So again thank you Gwen, Wendy, Curt, Roland, Jamie, Charlton, Doug, Carina, Bill, Gooch, Andy and crew and Andye. Also my work for giving me the time off short notice and my husband for understanding why I needed to go. And so nice to meet all of you at the shows and I’m sorry if I leave anyone out as I’m a bit teary eyed being Ms Sensitive Pants that I am 😳Darren, Paula, Dion, Paula’s mom, Liz from New Zealand, Martin, Martin’s lady friend and all of the others. Someday I hope to come back to visit again. Until next time…#bunnylousadventures #tearsforfearssummertour2019 #tearsforfears #tffff@bunnylous_adventures @tfftravelfans

*We’re especially grateful to you the readers. You support the band by being present online and in person. You are appreciated! Adam H in Atlanta, we’re thinking of you and Lisa! Thank you both for being amazing! See you soon!
The first two shows of the Tears for Fears Rule the World tour part II – sizzling summer edition left fans quite satisfied, to say the least. More like…THRILLED TO BITS! Roland brought back the Flying Wombat and family members in the UK, like Curt’s brother Shaun, were also in the audience. The venue is quite fitting for our Rock Royalty. It was an impeccable two days. Big thanks to Gwen, Wendy, Darren, Simon and many others who shared their entire experience from start to finish.
One of the highlights of the fan experience were fans, Gwen and Wendy’s, cool AirBNB that was right next to the venue. They were able to hear soundcheck loud and clear. Little Lulu was dancing along and is carrying the torch for Toddlers for Tears for Fears – and there are many. For the Millennials of the group (Gen Y) do you remember when that was us?!!
Roland’s jokes were fantastic and funny! It was great to see him in such great form. Curt was kind to pause for some pictures with fans and kept us on his own stroll as he arrived with daughter, Lady Diva last week. Enjoy all the highlights and moments from this magical show. Connect with fellow fans and be good to each other. This is a fan family motto! We’re soldiers of sound, loving Tears for Fears as we sally forth through this life.
Wow, what a sweet and subdued group (and not subdued in a bad way)! TFF Netherland’s energy was suave. You could hear a pin drop when Roland was talking. Now that’s a whole other kind of extreme respect. There was that one guy of whom you could tell by the energy in his voice was about to burst out of his merch and storm the stage for a hug and a brotherly smooch but other than that they were really calm and attentive. There was no talking between songs, no one fainted or fell out. They were just so calm and collected. Goals!
If only some of us could keep our wits about us (moderator included). We literally leap up and down when they come to town like children hearing the ice cream truck…it’s just bananas! LOL! Enjoy this synopsis of the show. We don’t have a lot of video and pictures. Just some shares from fellow fans.
Hope you enjoyed those shares and made some new friends with the people who shared them! This is the last week of the rescheduled sessions. It’s been years since any of us saw TFF during the colder months. We’re so glad it didn’t snow. The elements were clearly attending as well. We all saw the rain clouds make their way to a few venues as well as the wind. Ever notice the weather during the tour? Sometimes you get all four seasons into one…it’s like “the atmosphere knows they’re near.” The whole regional climate rejoices when the band comes to town. More shares to come! Cheers all!
Our friends from Germany did not disappoint when capturing great moments in the show. The Good Man Mr. Smith was kind enough to snap pictures and share the journey with all followers. We’re so grateful! This is dedicated to Ronnie, Mathias, the Tempodrom staff and the Good Man himself, Curt Smith. We’re super grateful for all that has been provided from the show. To our friends in Germany who were able to somehow get tickets at the last minute, good on you!
Das Warten hat sich gelohnt: Fast 30 Jahre mussten Fans darauf warten. Am Samstagabend spielten Tears for Fears wieder ein Konzert im ausverkauften Tempodrom. ❤
Rough Translation: It was worth the wait: Fans had to wait for it for nearly 30 years. On Saturday night, Tears for Fears played a concert again at the sold out Tempodrome.
Curt took some great photos as did several other members of the band. We’ll focus on Mr. Smith’s snapshots of beautiful Berlin. The city has seen a lot! And to think they had to wait all those years for a show…you know several of them have got to be suffering from Superfanitis…somebody send those fans some extra merch, they’re gonna need it! May this post help them remember the magical moments of the return of TFF to Berlin. Enjoy! Cheers!
*This post is dedicated to Gwen who has just gone above and beyond for SO MANY fans this tour. We envision a future fun photo with she and Mr. Orzabal. Picture them in a big laugh together post-show. We can see it! Thank you, Gwen!! You’re forever a hero!
Cutie Pies in the Crowd!
The reception for Alison Moyet throughout the tour has been terrific as expected! She’s our queen and we love her! She owns that stage! We’re going to miss her when this tour ends…and several of us are just hoping this is not the end of the Moyet x TFF connection. WE WANT MORE!! Big thanks to Gwen for supplying all the photos and contributions!
And she’s so frikkin nice!! Don’t take our word for it…look at this!
Always a fabulous time seeing @AlisonMoyet live, but what has really made my night, is that she has liked every single one of my tweets and replies about tonight’s show. Every. Single. One. 1/2
The Footy?! We’re going to be asking about this a lot… #Tease
“I don’t know how it’s possible but you all get better with each show! That was #6 of this tour for me tonight, just incredible. Thank you for not laughing ‘too’ hard at us singing and dancing along 😜🌻@tearsforfears @charltonpettus @jameswollam See you at the next one!” – Superfan Gwen C.
This is one for the books! We will not ever forget this tour! We have certainly LIVED!! Totally steeped in gratitude right now for this amazing music and wonderful experience for so many in the UK! – TFF Travel Fan Team #Tour2019
Tonight’s bonus is this review: Good, bad? Thoughts? We are known to let a writer have it every now and again if they dare focus on superficial things… tell us your thoughts on this review:
Update – We hope everyone is having a good time in ATL. The hotel is super nice. Big thanks to Michael Roland Magno for coming to the bar last night and spending some time with us after his show! Tears for Fears are scheduled to go on around 8:25p Eastern Standard Time tonight at the Piedmont- Ford Sponsored stage.The show’s audio will be live-streamed according to Shaky Knees. Most of the fans we spoke to plan to be in VIP. So, we’re focusing on that experience. Be sure to read this before you go. If you’re doing the Platinum experience – reach out to Andye on Twitter @andyeisthenews because she has the day’s schedule created by Shaky Knees including the lunch and dinner info plus the notes on the private performance by Liz Phair – all of which is in the festival email that should have reached you.
There will be fast track entrances for VIP Platinum. The merch table is not far from the Ford Sponsored Stage. Getting inside might be an ordeal so please just be patient and give yourself enough time to get there. If you’re local to Atlanta, please do not try to go to work today if you can avoid it. Just come over and hang out!! Don’t wait til the last minute and try to run over!
…and yes, this time the band is playing a venue in the heart of Atlanta. It’s not Duluth this time, it’s Atlanta. Shaky Knees Music Festival is a pretty big deal in ATL. Atlanta is a festival city, it’s always on and poppin’ so expect some intense crowds. Get there early and read all the fine print. The wristbands can’t be transferred. It’s 3 days long but one-day tickets are available. All hotels will be booked solid and rates will be high so get in now! Can’t stress this enough, if you are flying in, you MUST book your hotel in advance. You, of course, do not have to pay for it right now, you just need to hold your space by not selecting advance payment. The reservation now will lock in your rate. As you get closer to the festival date, these rates may not be as friendly.
Our suggested hotel is the Hyatt Regency Centric Midtown. This hotel is one of the closest 4-star hotels. Others are Marriott, Hyatt Regency and The W as well. Current price is around $200 a night at the Hyatt Centric for festival dates. That may change if you wait and book at a later date. The park is the equivalent of Central Park in New York, only much much smaller…but not that small.
No fancy cute clothes, we suggested full on soldiers of sound Doc Martens, Curt Smith Tour Couture, super snazzy t-shirt with some comfy jeans and a secure bag within regulation of the festivals’ bag laws (oh yeah, there are bag laws) and enough money to enjoy the deliciousness that is ATL. We have some serious restaurants here. We’re saying “we” because this is where MANY serious long time Tears fans live. We have what we like to call the Travel Fan HQA near the second place that Tears played back in 2010 (Chastain Amphitheatre, now State Bank Chastain Amphitheatre). The second is in Los Angeles. The mothership HQ is in Bath …at Kath’s house. But we digress…
Let’s get down to cash chat… Tickets
Regular Gen Am started out around $179+tax, fees, etc. VIP Tier one is now $595, tier 2 is $1600+. Is it worth it? If you’re flying in and going for just one day, just get the general admission. If you plan to stay all three days and you’re not concerned about front row or being close to the stage, get the general admission. If you can’t handle crowds and you need a seat, you may want to invest in the Tiers that the festival provides. (Andye currently has one extra VIP ticket available for less than market rate – it’s Tier 1 and can be mailed to you in April). Connect with us on the Travel Fan site or tweet her at @andyeisthenews to get the details (and they are swweeeeet deets!)
Meet and Greet – we had a venue next to the festival itself already on standby, a catering crew, ridiculously tight security booked, etc. to name a few things. Henceforth, a plan was in place just in case the band/band member(s) could actually be present. But all bookings for such things seem tough given their tight schedule. They’ll be in Florida shortly after the show most likely. Meet and greets at the venue itself with the band are not orchestrated by us unless requested by higher authorities. For travel fan meetups, carpools and general ATL questions, send us an email via Facebook. You will get a response. *Update, if you’re in Tier1 or Tier2 there will be fans walking around.
As a whole, Atlanta festivals are pretty clean. This isn’t going to be a repeat of Woodstock 2 with mud pits from the rain, etc. Kids will be there. A ton of security will be there. Most of this area is most likely under heavy surveillance like downtown ATL where there are cameras everywhere. It’s super hard to get away with anything in this town. It’s family friendly and there are lots of rules so be sure to read the fine print as mentioned. Study the map so you can better understand where to pick up your wristband. Please see this map:
If you want to make a long holiday of this, please reach out to us on Facebook and we’ll happily give you the best advice we have on ATL, this is one city we know extremely well. We’ll eventually do a video to go over everything, perhaps an FB Live or Periscope. Again, do not delay the hotel bookings if you’re flying in. We usually say get the ticket first and let everything else fall into place. However, the hotel booking, in this case, may be more important than the ticket just because this is a conference and festival city, hotels are always booked in May. Book now to avoid delays!
Shaky Knees Festival Friday Night features Tears for Fears Stage Time: (be there by 7:45pm Eastern please) – go to the Piedmont Stage (sponsored by Ford) Admission: $179-$1600 plus taxes and fees (Remember Andye has an extra VIP ticket for less than the full cost – she’d prefer a true fellow fan to get it). Hotel Suggestion: Hyatt Centric Midtown $200 a night average, 4 star hotel near venue Airfare: Fly with Delta, the metro/subway/train will take you straight to the hotels that are next to the venue. But we suggest Uber or a car service. Food: There are over 450 restaurants in Atlanta alone, 50% of them are in this area. You will not starve. Use Yelp to help you pick the cuisine you love the most. Or use the Postmates app and have it delivered to you. The hotel has pretty good food too, slightly pricey but worth it.
Will there be a TFF merch table? – There is a section where you can buy merch. It is not within the VIP tent.
Is this the only show in the USA 2019? – No, they’ll be in Florida on the 5th at Sun Fest
Will we get to hear the new tracks at the show? – TBD
How many songs will be played? – TBD
Some early notes for Tears for Fears Travel Fans coming in from the states…
By now, you know, you need a passport. We are recommending flying Delta or British Airways to get to the U.K. and, once there, use the series of trains and ground transportation to get to the hotel and venue. If you have questions, we’ve got of TONS of fans who are on standby willing to assist with how to get from point A to point B. For this tour, we will be choosing hotels that are a little different from our norm in order to cut down the cost (though some are far from a steal). Remember, buy your pre-sale tickets first, let everything else fall into place.
*picture: First Direct Leeds Arena concert venue seating
This venue offers hospitality experiences and since we have a few days between shows this is a perfect time to think about something nice prior to the concert (not after).
POSTPONED 30 April SEC Armadillo – Tickets – Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn Glasgow Seating Chart
*Some of the Travel Fan team members have lots of friends in Glasgow and with this added show, it might be nice to just stay on a few days – if you do it’s understandable. Great opportunity to do some real meeting up and hanging out. If you can’t do the first two shows, try to do this one!
*You have time to relax a little for this show with that one day in between so be sure to use the suggested hotel. Save the cheap ones for the nights you’re not really staying long in that particular city. This is more about seeing the band and hanging out with fellow fans vs. site seeing for us. Now, about those untiered floor blocks…whaaat? Gracious me!
POSTPONED 7 May – SEC Armadillo – Tickets – Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn Glasgow
This is the original show that was planned, a new one was added above due to demand. Remember – *Don’t bring a large bag to this venue. Try to leave large purses, etc. at home for this show.
POSTPONED 8 May – Echo Arena in Liverpool – Tickets – Seating Chart – Hotel: You’re spoiled for choice – from furnished flats that are within walking distance to one with The Beatles theme…you already know which one we’re gonna pick! You get a little time here so make it count!
10 May – The O2 – Tickets – Seating Chart – Hotel: Intercontinental The02
*That venue link takes you to their VIP experience. This is different from buying a premium seat VIP ticket to see TFF. Our idea of premium seating is on the stage or in front of it…preferably the aforementioned. LOL! O2’s venue option provides extra comfort around “a” show. This is a great pre-game/pre-show thought that we will explore. We certainly don’t plan to sit in their VIP suite to watch R&C on a screen. But it would be nice to do something in advance or afterwards.
POSTPONED 11 May – Bournemouth BIC Windsor – Tickets – Seating Chart– Hotel -this hotel isn’t that close to the venue as others but it’s really nice. It’s also a bit less expensive than the closer options which include Park Central and a the Bournemouth Marriott.
VIP options – just read through them all and see if you want to do something fun pre-show. Great time to meetup with fans. Pick one, let us know which is your favourite.
POSTPONED 12 MayBrighton Centre – Tickets – Seating Chart– Hotel
*Sometimes we say, “Hey, if you’re gonna go…go all out” and you certainly will with our hotel choice. It’s over $200 a night USD but worth it. If by this time you’re broke from buying enough merch to wear a different TFF t-shirt each day of the month there’s a Travelodge nearby as well.
Airfare hasn’t really dropped but if you book now you can save a couple of hundred dollars on Delta. If you’re in Europe already I’d say fly Air Italia or Lufthansa to all of these locations. If you’re flying Air France, let us know because we’re just curious about the service. There are also a number of trains that will help you get from point A to point B but we’re going to stick with planes because it’s just a little faster and if you miss something you can usually get the next flight to the following concert location within an hour. With shows this close together we can’t take any chances.
What to expect next year – a good, powerful set list! We’re hoping Michael Wainwright will stick with the band as well for the majority of 2018. He is very enjoyable and friendly. He’s known to come out and speak to fans as he is a very personable person. We consider him to be a member of Tears for Fears as much as many others before him. MW of whom you may see us refer to as Nice Guy Mike (NGM) was with the band prior to Carina Round in case some of you who are just now getting back on the fan train didn’t know. He’s real cool and we’re looking forward to more. We’re also hoping Mr. Moyer gets a good spin with the band so we can enjoy his marvelous sax on The Working Hour.
Meet & Greets + Fan Conferences – no word yet…still on the EMFH RSVP for that. So we’ll see…
Stick around, more news to come in this space…
Thanks for reading,

If you were one of the fortunate ones able to snag a very difficult-to-obtain ticket for the 27 October show, you might as well go all out with a nice stay at The Kensington. This hotel is actually one of the preferred hotels of the Royal Albert Hall. Of course, if you’re local I’m sure you’re giving me the two finger salute.
Now, for those of us stateside who usually pay anywhere from $50-$275 a night for a standard to slightly upgraded room (with the exception of Vegas shows where we just pretend money is no object and go buck wild with cabanas for 3 days and parties), the Kensington is going to cost you around $400 US a night after tax. And…the room will be half the size of the swank abodes we’ve been spoiled with on tour. So, just be mentally ready for that. It’s gorgeous though. Take a look at the photos.
For those of us not going, myself included, this is like missing a Royal Wedding. The venue is unbelievable. It’s quite the answered prayer in many ways. There have been hundreds (I’m not exaggerating) of fans in the UK who have all but sold their insides begging and pleading Tears for Fears to have a show there (as if the band really has total control over that). And here it is…and damn if something funky didn’t happen the day the tickets went on sale to prevent us from going in addition to what was already a stab in the heart with short notice of ticket sales (remember when we said your 6 months of savings should also include $300 for a couple of Tears for Fears tickets? People think we’re trying to be funny – Nope, this is a prime example). Thankfully, Good Man Curt Smith – G-d love him – tweeted forward with a statement that once again proved his knowledge and sentiment to the cause of the fans. They know WE TRY hard to be at every show and that is an understatement.
1. I’m sorry to hear about the issues with ticket availability for our London show. I have had discussions with management & agents.
I have been that fan that literally flies home, goes to work and flies out that same evening JUST to see them one more time and in many cases, over and over again. It’s just THAT healing. But it’s even better when you’ve got a great venue with amazing seats and don’t have to contend with standing in queue 6-7 hours prior to the show for the dreaded Gen Am. THIS my dear fellow fans, is the show of shows to be at and I pray that something works out so that it happens again (maybe annually for a few years) so that we can all show up and show out in lovely frocks with our handkerchiefs in tow crying like a bride’s mother over these songs that have left us shook as f*ck.
Speaking of being shook, check out who is opening for the band… Freya Ridings. Check her out…powerful voice!
If by chance you just want to be in the area and hang around (there are people that do that), take British Airways or Delta. Use a car service to get you to and from London Heathrow and spoil yourself with a night at the Kensington. Then walk over to RAH and just be somewhere near without being disruptive. Just do it. Stay the weekend, leave on a Sunday. Walk around, be in the energy of historic London…just do it. If you have the resources to just get there…GO!
Are You Serious? What the hell are we gonna do?
RAH has guided tours, tea and much more. While you’re there, hire a car and go to Bath, England. Plan to stay a night there as well. Make the most of it!
26 October Show with BBC2
So, this is also happening and we’ve yet to have heard who the blessed Earls of Fortune are that got the tickets. But just “For Everyone’s I” as Curt would say, this is taking place. Bookmark it and follow it, you never know what you may see or find out on the day of the show. Gonna be pretty sweet for sure.
Meet and Greets
We get this question for every show. Unlike years past, we just don’t see these like we used to for a variety of reasons. It’s sort of an every man for himself, just ask and see what happens kind of thing. All we can say is for goodness sake, hold on to the no scream policy. Do not freak out around the band if you see them. Keep it cool. For some it’s hard because it’s literally like watching an angel manifest before you. Some may disagree but for those that “know” …you know it’s true.
Travel Fan Team on the Ground
For every show there is a loyal one who usually comes through and provides the coverage that we archive. We all pool our videos, whomever got the best one for each song is what goes online. Everyone uploads their selections to YouTube or sends us a file via email. We don’t know what will happen this time around because that ticket debacle just threw us off. We’re hoping for the best.
What to expect?
The set list we’ve been hearing and hopefully some surprises. We’re checking to see if Mr. Moyer will join because that means Working Hour gets played! Heck yes!!! We’re also hoping the “Broken” ending for HOH will be played as well. That’s one to make you faint…bring your smelling salts and look alive. We can only pray that I Love You But I’m Lost will be permitted to the public at both shows. We’ll see!
Cheers all, have a great time and stay in touch! We’ll be either within a mile of the venue being present and respectful or reachable by phone. Keep your passport card with you, keep the passport in the hotel. Trust us on that one!
