I think the problems are hotel, only 47 in Cork with Booking.
Lucca 155 but 3000 in 30 km around

Please just announce this tour quick. Anywhere in Ireland or England. I cant book flights home until this is announced smiling smiley

Will probably be announced in March.
Jeroen

It will be announced earlier, even late January, most probably early February.
14 shows again, 10 in England/Ireland/Scotland/Wales and 4 "bonus shows" in Europe. Tour start in late May.

Where do you have the information from? I can't imagine they plan 10 shows in UK and Ireland. That's way too many - they never fill ten stadiums with the current prices - unless there are arena shows included (which I also don't think is very likely except O2). Four continental shows also doesn't make much sense. All in Paris?

Wait and see, they will not play Paris again this year, only countries not visited in 2017.
Also the can easily fill 10 shows in the UK on various cities, 2/3 London, 1 on Manchester/Liverpool/Leeds, Dublin, Cardiff, Glasgow.

They can easily fill 10 arenas with 10.000-20.000 capacity but for sure not 10 stadiums unless they reduce the prices (which ain't very likely). Even in 1990 there were "only" I think eleven stadium shows in UK.

As for mainland Europe: I don't think they would even consider Poland if they planned only four shows. One of the shows will be in Germany surely were 4 concerts were planned for 2017. Probably in eighter Frankfurt, Stuttgart or Berlin.

There seems little doubt they're gonna do 'something somewhere' in 2018, so as usual ... the focus of people's attention is now gonna increasingly shift to 'announcement time' !!

Does anyone have any sensible ideas when something remotely credible (or even 'official' dare I say) might break ? For me, 'credible' means - for example - a 'rumoured' tour itinerary on this board, courtesy of BV !! Such as has always prevailed in the past.

'Credible' does not include people's personal preferences or wish lists, or 'fantasy like' tour itineraries based on their personal summer plans and an uncanny ability to provide accurate long term weather forecasts !!

Based on the whisperings so far, I would be hoping for something vaguely credible by perhaps March, and duly confirmed in April ?

Paul, you really must stop being so sensible!

You’ll ruin the thread grinning smiley

Monsoon Ragoon, don't forget, many stadiums in the UK have 35,000 - 40,000 capacity. They are not vast like "Wembley" or "Bernabeu" or Munich and Berlin Olympic Stadiums.

Consider, in addition, that the last UK round was 5 years ago. And many people in the UK do know that the upcoming chance to see the Stones live, once again, is likely the last one.

Okay, see you in Liverpool! They'll start with Please Please Me.

There are several 50,000+ stadia outside London. Scotland has 2 Stadia over 60,000 and Wales has the Principality in Cardiff with 74,000. All 3 have hosted many concerts. In the North of England there are 5 stadia with 50,000+ capacities with Old Trafford 76,000.

I believe they will only use the biggest stadiums in Cardiff, Scotland, Manchester/North England, maybe Birmingham. That’s three or four shows. Plus up to three or four shows in London. Plus Dublin. That’s seven, if not eight shows, but not ten. They won't book arenas for 30% of the usual salary, except maybe the O2 were they already did five legendary shows.

You can discount Birmingham as its biggest stadium is Villa Park with a 40,000 capacity, has no recent previous for concerts and is in an area with traffic congestion issues. Manchester could easily support 2 Shows as it has a huge population within a 2 hour drive. You also haven’t counted Festival appearances. No Glastonbury next year but Knebworth could happen.

it is a shame that the ties with the political representation and promoters in czech republic were somewhat severed. They could easily have a big crowd in Prague. Prague is strong enough economically, and it is close for almost all of europe with many options how to get there.
There is arena for 20k people or a place called letna where they played 2003 for 80k people. both basically in city centre.
Even kind of expensive tickets for other bands are selling out in minutes.

i mean it definitely will not happen, i just like to think about it grinning smiley

How the hell can BV put up a list of rumoured gigs when at this moment in time ... there ISN'T one such list ?

Patience ! When he hears something substantial that is actually credible, I'm sure he'll put it on the board ...

There aren't many real rumours around yet I guess, but several bizarre proposals (Cork).

Would love them to come to Brum or even the West midlands.

St Andrews would be fantastic, but the reality it is too small.

And so what is BV supposed go do ? Post details of every snippet of every conversation that he gets to hear about - 10th or 20th hand ? Come on, don't be absurd ! Just WAIT, and we'll get to hear about it in due course, when there's something actually reasonably substantial and believable for him to tell us about.

And I for one wouldn't expect that to be before around March at the earliest, maybe even April in fact. I have but one reason for thinking this, which is that if you consider the last few excursions of theirs, the formal announcements haven't been much more than 3 or possibly 4 months prior to the dates of the shows ! So is there any reason to think that this time round will be any different ?
