This is soooo wonderful & miraculous & ecstatic!!!

Jarrko & Marie, thank you so much for all the fantastic info. I wished I lived in Europe!!

I was just thinking, wouldn't it be nice if a bunch of us non-Europeans could rent an apt. or house, & just stay in Europe for a couple of months (& of course, needless to say, go to all the concerts)??!! Yes, it's a (greedy) fanstasy, & I will be infinitely grateful for whatever concerts I can get to, but these fantasies just seem to crop up in my mind, all of their own volition. . .

Joy, I'm glad the schedule is working out so nicely for you! We will probably come to Ghent too & it will be so lovely to see you there!!

Glastonbury 2008 was very special. Even better to be watching Leonard with 'non-fans' and watch them slowly turn into disciples :)
Sadly, there is no Glastonbury this year. But yes, another festival would be cool...

Personally I'd hate to see Leonard at a festival! The terrible sound systems, the noise, the hordes of people. Much nicer in a cosy concert venue :lol:

hi all
for once i will also try to interprete Jarkko
in his signature he writes for 2012: X / Helsinki / Verona
I would understand that like he is planning to got to another concert before Helsinki, which is not announced yet

I trust you won´t be angry with me, Jarkko - thanks for everything you do for us - looking forward to meet you at least in Verona - and best greetings to Eija and all finnish friens

This is awesome news. Some stunning venues there, Wuhlheide in Berlin is a wonderful venue, right out in the middle of the forest. Really easy to get to on the S-Bahn too. Arena Di Verona is another I would love to go to.

Gutted they're both on weeknights, but more gutted that work internet blocks forum access so I'll not be able to get involved in the presales. :(

Don't think so.
25-26-rest-28-29-rest-31-rest-2
3 days of rest during 9 day period. Two days out of nine - hardly imagine that.

P.S. Oh. Sorry, I understand you now. I'm thinking too much about Sweden.

Here's another guess - Wouldn't Jarkko want to attend the first concert of the tour? ... So maybe Ghent will not the first concert ... ;-) I'm still hoping there will be 1 or 2 concerts in Central Europe. Well if not, I will take Berlin!

Such wonderful news! I can't wait to hear more about the North American leg of the tour! But, I will look forward to YouTube videos from Europe to tide me over until then! (Irish Al, are you ready? ;-) )

Jarkko (or others in the know), I am still a newbie to all this, although I did purchase Las Vegas tix through the presale here in 2010. I want to be prepared for some presales, so what do I need to do? For Las Vegas I think purchase was via Ticketmaster, is that the case with these new concerts? If not, how should I be prepared to pay? Are credit cards OK, or must I set up Paypal? And, because I only know English (I know, ugly American--but I DID take 3 years of French in high school many years ago), will I be able to navigate through the pre-sales? Any help will be appreciated.
