I recall that there were lots of reviews and feedback. There were even a lot more footage uploaded on youtube! Nowdays we hardly see it. Maybe it would be a nice move to do another US tour. I think people in America deserve that now. QE has changed a lot since last time they toured those waters.
What do you think about this julymorning? Is it likely?
A couple of us were having a public discussion about that under Paul Bond's nose and he happened to reply that it wasn't a matter of expense bringing Tyler, Marc and Francois to the U.K. as much as it was just not getting good enough offers over here.
Whatever that means. Possibly in light of the substantial ticket increase they are getting over there that some have complained about on here.
I really don't know how booking works, but I get the idea that the venues have to be clamoring for the band in a tour efficient manner, and willing to guarantee a 'take' amount. In otherwords, venues that are plentiful enough the band isn't just hitting 4 or 5 spots over the entire North American continent.
My first belief was that band or in this case QPL promoters did the contacting. But apparently that's not the case.
All that being said, Marc did reply to someone on his fb page asking about coming back here, and his reply was cryptic, but not a definite "no". More like a "You never know what's in the future". Those guys are good at keeping mum on everything.
.It is my uppermost hope that even histories' genius's lost their minds as they aged. I'd hate to think that I really am an idiot. sjm
