Wow, 12 dates. And still there are people on the forum complaining that he doesn't come anywhere near them. Who do they think they are? How about they get their lazy asses on a plane and travel to a gig. Bah!

Will you go to another one of the concerts?

Camden, definately. Any other dates are unlikely. I had to get two teeth worked on yesterday and dentists are very expensive in America. Bah!

Looks like a mini-gathering at the Red Rocks gig

So far about 4 or 5 PG fans will be meeting this -include moi

Happy St. Patrick's Day ladies

Sometimes 3,000 miles is too far and way to expensive to travel - nothing to do with being "lazy asses"

I guess you must have tons of money galatead - it takes balls to call poor people lazy asses

This is such a wonderful useful resource that you are providing and you give it absent free of charge. I love seeing web sites that understand the value of providing a quality useful resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around program.

Well Anonymous, if they have enough money to go to a gig if it's in their area, they cannot be poor. Cause the concert tickets alone are expensive enough.

If everybody in the world complained that there's no concert right in THEIR city, PG would be busy for the years trying to please every single one of his fans. There would be no new music. So good luck if you want him to tour New Blood for the rest of his live in every single little city of the world. LOL

Have fun in Camden, Rraven!

One can't have fun in Camden, NJ. Even people from Bangledesh say, "You have to go to CAMDEN? What a hell hole!" This will be like picking up drugs -- quickly go in, find your dealer and sneak off back home before you're spotted. Too bad I can't hook the music up to my veins!

Lol

Okay, I've never been to New Jersey, so I wouldn't know. :-D

Hope you'll enjoy the concert anyway.

Yes galatead, I want Peter Gabriel to play every single little city of the world for all eternity.

That's exactly what I meant to say, thanks for clearing that up for me.

Some can afford the tickets, if it's in their town - but add airline tickets, hotels and food that makes it just out of reach -

but they aren't lazy asses because they wish he'd play their city

The city I hope he adds, is a world class city not a little town - it was good enough to host the world it's good enough to host Mr. Gabriel

But if not Red Rocks looks like it may be fun

$408 for two tickets in Toronto - I don't think so, crazy

galatead said...

wtf? I don't even know what city you talk about ANONYMOUS. As I didn't tank about you specifically, as I don't even know who you are.

I was talking about the people in the tours section who complain WHENEVER PG is touring. They are NEVER satisfied. No matter how many gigs he adds to the tour list. There's always someone complaining.

And sure, if someone is poor, $ 300for a ticket is easily affordable AS LONG as they don't have to buy an airline ticket. Sure...
