    Still waiting for news on Pittsburgh and Philly, though Mike Peters has mentioned a Philly Rocks gig on the 10th which may be it:

    But there is more info on two of the gigs - I am almost beside myself with excitement, first time I will see Nick in the old country! :m3:

    Cy Curnin, the Alarm and Fastball are also appearing on the Saturday - now there's a lineup :) Sadly Glenn Tilbrook is playing Sunday, and I think the next gig wins for me, sorry Glenn ;)

    Gosh, what an idiot I am forgetting to say that, like I meant to... I blame sleep deprivation and leaving my brain in Norway!

    Don't know what I'd do without you correcting me, Linn...

    Fingers crossed this trip goes really well, so the next one seems like a given ;)

    You're not alone over the Bay Bridge, there's a few converts that side too :wink: I do wish Nick had popped over to Cali years ago, there are so many cool little venues to play and so many there who would appreciate him. I think he'd go down a storm in Marin, Health and Harmony, Reggae by the River festival, etc, etc...

    The 411(info) on Pittsburgh?

    Here's hoping I can make it to at least Pittsburgh. Don't know if any college buddies are still in the Pittsburgh area. Interesting date...

    It'd be nice to put faces to some of the rest of you. How hard core is the fan base in Pittsburgh? (Why do they rate, and not Chicago? Am I simply not doing my job?)

    NC, it looks like Nick's playing with Cy Curnin from the Fixx on that date, they are Love Hope Strength trek friends and have been doing lots of shows together over here (will also both be doing Philly Rocks the night before and Ocean County Fest the day after) - it's all good :biggrin:

    It'll be a first for me, going to Pittsburgh... no hostels I can find there though, methinks this road trip is getting a wee tad expensive but oh well I'll just go very austere for the rest of '09 :blushing: it's worth it :biggrin:

    SPB- Think I missed the Fixx before the Police at Comiskey Park (Go White Sox!) around 1984. My Date didn't want to see The Fixx or Ministry (I did), but wanted to see Joan Jett (followed by Flock of Seagulls) before the "early, good" Police (when they were a "tight" act).

    Would be good, if I can manage. Probably won't know 'til the last moment. Then I'll have to figure out logistics, etc. Don't count on me.

    AIN'T I A PAIN?!

    Not a pain at all! But hope I see you there :D

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Here's hoping

    If my Mom and Sis visit Door County, WI at the same time Nick's in P'burg, I'll have one less excuse. They still haven't figured out when, but now my Mom wants to go with me the end of August (Mom is 88!).

    How's that part of town? Where are the hotels? Can I get a group rate if a stay the same place as the Band? (and don't mind driving home without any sleep?):D

    Dunno much about Pittsburgh, I think I'm staying east of there maybe over an hour away, haven't decided yet) so I save money and I don't have a full 5 hour drive back to Union County in the morning! :bored:

    And I'll certainly post reviews for you guys but I bet they won't get used for anything else :wink:
