A bird in the hand, Goldy! The only U.S. mentions I've heard have been that he's not booking any here. Later ones for Europe will be announced later. If he should come to the U.S., consider it a bonus and try to see him again.

Wait a minute! I thought "advanced booking" wasn't supposed to start until March 13th! Maybe it means "No seats" AVAILABLE YET! I didn't even try, as soon as I saw the March 13 info.

I may have to, Cortez... but I really don't think any sales for Canada are happening until March 13, with the password to be issued at 9 AM [EST ~ Eastern Standard Time aka ET ~ Eastern Time] here for the sales to commence at 10 AM. At least that's how I read it, and I'm stickin' to it ;-) . Hopefully, I'm correct :shock: .

I must say... this is an unbelievably generous! Should I say grueling schedule that Leonard is going to be following! I can't even imagine an itinerary like that for normal travel, much less performance travel!

I must agree that this is fantastic news for us that LC is doing such an extensive tour. It's far bigger than we could have even dreamt of for a man of his maturity and experience( I'm trying to avoid saying that he is old!) I am biased here as I live near Cambridge but the famous folk festival there is the first weekend in August - not covered yet in the tour details - and they have not released details of artists yet. I am wondering, and hoping, that he could appear there. I will be going anyway, so to have LC there as well would be wonderful. The term "folk" is of course a broad one and he would not be out of place there and would be greatly appreciated by all, I'm certain.

God, imagine if he did play at the Cambridge folk festival! What an incredible atmosphere that would be. In the meantime looks like I'm going to be stuck with the O2 as I'm away in June (gutted). Maybe there'll be a whole rake of intimate venues announced later on, but failing that, anywhere on the front three rows of the O2 wouldn't be too bad(!)

Can it be possible that there are no U.S. venues?

I am really confused, trying to find how to get a ticket to see Leonard anywhere in the UK, but preferably London. Which part of this forum would have that information?

Well-if I see Bucharest written on The Files now I finally start believing it. Any idea where I can find out what "TBD" is supposed to be? (I'm really really sorry for asking questions too, Jarkko, I don't know how you manage to get any work or sleep done these days, but I think I'm getting the nervous-unpatient spirit too!)

TBD = to be determined, says Google.
