QUIZ: where is the last concert of the tour?

Postby jarkko » Sun Jul 05, 2009 9:55 pm

I am getting daily a lot of emails asking what's happening after the summer tour. We all know that nothing has been confirmed, and I cannot give any exact answer to those who are asking.

However, I thought that this would be a good moment for a little quiz!

Answer (in this thread, not by email nor PM) this question: where do you think will be the last concert of the World Tour 2008-2009?

We are looking for the name of the city. We have nice prizes to give away: two CDs of the Webb Sisters (see below), signed by Charley and Hattie. The first CD goes to the member who was the first to suggest the correct city, and the second CD will be go to a participant randomly selected. The quiz will continue until the name of the city is officially announced (or is otherwise public knowledge).

Who will be the first to suggest a city? -- Only ONE guess per member accepted!!!

I have no reason to believe I have the right answer, at least I'm the first to take a guess:

Austin, Texas.
Columbia May 11, 2009; Boston May 29, 2009; Durham November 3, 2009; Las Vegas December 10 & 11, 2010; Austin November 1, 2012; Boston December 15, 2012; Brooklyn December 20, 2012

First, Thank you Jarkko for starting this thread and for having the idea of this quiz!
So many of us have been 'waiting patiently' for an announcement and this will help keep our hopes high!

I am one of those that went to Red Rocks and had to leave when the concert was postponed as I couldn't stay the
2 extra days. I am hoping there will be more concerts in North America so I can attend another one.

I think it will be New York as that is where the tour started.
(I would have said Montreal but in one post you mentioned that would not be the 'last' concert).

So my one guess is New York.

Thanks Mutti (Leslie)

My guess still (for merely pragmatic reasons): Montreal?!

Paris, as it would be a reasonable stopping off point between Spain/ Israel and North America, as Leonard wends his way homewards....

I would also like it to be San Francisco and not Oakland, because "There is no there there"
But my guess is Toronto..

For no other reason than desire - please let it be NICOSIA (Cyprus).
Would be the perfect end - Israel/Palestine unity followed by Greek/Turkish goodwill.
..... and it is pretty close geographically.

All personal desires aside ;-) , I guess it will have to be somewhere in North America, perhaps a place where they haven't played before during this tour.
So I'd say Atlanta.
