Dates marked RUMOURED may happen, or may not happen. This list is supplied to you from fan to fan, based on lots of hard work, research and experience. This way you can make your travel plans, look at the map, plan other big events etc, but please do not do any final flight or travel investments until dates are CONFIRMED. And even after a date is confirmed, it may change last minute, for many reasons. Dates in (paranthesis) are optional dates in a confirmed venue, that may or may not go on sale, depending on the speed of the ticket sales.

I need your help in order to fill in the missing or incorrect details. If a small place is near a big city (like half an hour drive), then please tell. Please send email if you have additional info about names of cities, places, dates, spelling etc. Thanks!

Ticket sales

You can order tickets from many countries even if you are calling from abroad, as long as you have a credit card on hand. Some countries (like Holland) do only offer a toll-free phone number that can not be accessed from abroad. Be aware that handling fees and additional charges may add up to 30% or more on a single ticket, and it may be just as cheap to actually buy the ticket from a local friend/fan, or trade it on the concert day on the "black market" (see how to get tickets). Ticket prices are exclusive of booking fees, which typically are about 10% (in addition to the prices given below).

In any case - don't panic - you will get your ticket - don't worry!
