What about Winnipeg?

Postby pansons » Tue May 29, 2012 11:37 pm

Just wondering why Leonard is not doing a show in Winnipeg. Last time he was here it was a sell-out.

I suppose it's simply that he can't play everywhere.

Also, there would have to be an appropriate venue available at the right time to fit in with the rest of the itinerary as they travel through that part of the country. No doubt, some seemingly 'obvious' cities have to be missed on any given tour for this particular reason.

I was wondering the same thing, especially since he's in Saskatoon (???) The NHL schedule isn't done yet, so I really don't think the MTS Centre would be booked. Hopefully the organizers will notice this oversight and find a date in the schedule. I'm not sure it was a sellout last time, but it was pretty full.

Well, he made a stop there the last time around, so the tour organizers must know the market...And apparently the economy is booming in Saskatchewan, so maybe it is relatively easy to sell tickets there to expensive shows.

It was sold out last time. Went to three other shows and none were close to Winnipeg. What a shame he can't make it. Looks like I'm on the road again. He'll play Saskatoon? Kingston? London? but Winnipeg is booked or they didn't choose to come? Strange....

I'm sorry but I find this sort of comment SO frustrating. You could say the same thing about any number of cities in North America - both Canada and the US - or Europe which are not included in the current tour schedules, not to mention whole continents for which there are no current tour plans. Leonard can't play everywhere and, yes, some of us will have to travel if we want to see him (he's not playing my home town either) but let's just be grateful that he will be back on tour very shortly.

Rant over.
