Yeah, I'm sure if there were any promoter types around who could find out exactly how the band would settle regarding revenue for doing, say eleven, shows on a European tour. Then it's just a matter of booking the right venues in the time they can tour. Obviously a lot of Americans would come over. I'd expect a decent interest here from Europeans also. It would definitely be financially viable. Who can find out what the bands requirements would be? Surely they'd be up for the tour of a lifetime, especially as there's the chance these days to hit up Eastern Europe. I'd certainly suggest Prague, Budapest, Gdansk and Tallinn as well as the obvious Western European spots. J
"Are you kind?"
thanking you muchly, Richard...
would be great if a bit of grass roots organising could influence the Dead coming here, but think you're right on the miracle front...
wish you that miracle Todd
Just the thought of those locations! what a hoot to see the Dead in some of the greatest cities in Europe. I can just picture it: headed off for a week's holiday in Barcelona - my wife's favourite european city.. like, ever.. ok, that and Geneva.. and i quite like Prague, and Amersterdam for that matter, but i digress... How cool would it be to take a great holiday, in a great city and see the the Dead play??!!
I think someone in the Dead promotional/booking department needs to remind them that there's a whole world out there and they could have a great time playing a more "intimate" gig in some really great cities!
as with everyone.. living in hope...
A Euro tour would be most cool.
I agree with Bob, no way they would do 11 shows in the UK. but, an 11 show Euro tour...
(licking my lips)
London, Wembley, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Frankfort, Hamburg, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Prague....
at this stage in their lives, i think it is a matter of "where do we want to go and play" type of thinking for the band.
I think the only rumours of a Europe tour I've heard recently, were the ones I started a few years back.
those are the venues where they HAVE played.
I'll go see if it's acting weird, but I don't think in this case the past is a predictor of the future. Dang.
maybe this is just some form of tally which suggests the number of venues that are possible for the dead to play - but i do sincerely doubt that there are only 9 venues in the UK where they could play (and one is not even the NEC).
It would be great if they did play here.. last time i saw them was Chicago 92 or 93... of course that was pre-Jerry demise... wierdly enough, i just stumbled across a copy of High Times that i bought which featured Jerry following the news... oh the memories...
The strand is on this site! Follow the links: Shows and lyrics and then venues by location... you see a whole host of locations: US, UK, Netherlands, France, Jamaica... etc..
not sure how good this thing works.. even when you select venues in the US, you get the whole host of Alaska, Illinois, etc... but when selecting them, they go..uh... nowhere.. again... so, either someone has set this up with an intention of populating (and hasn't) or it's just a mistake... have a look.. just to prove i'm not going crazy.
where are you seeing this?
For the sake of all the UK Heads, hope it's true, but I've heard nothing.
i doubt they would play 11 dates in UK, they never have before
