Don't worry guys, just be patient... There will be the UK tour you have been waiting for. The route is still under construction, that's why we don't have final details yet. We expect announcement and presale during the second half of May.

Google? (name + manchester)- or Rodin is a very good clairvoyant.

Rodin - are you a sculptor by any chance?

Do we have any time frames for the announcements? is it going to be before June? :)

Yiannis, Jarkko said announcement in second half of may which is before June. Cannot be much clearer or from a more reliable source even if he cannot give us an exact date

Oh joy!
I hope the British tour listings are posted before I book my holidays! It really would be great to see Leonard play more towns in the UK - Sheffield would be a bonus! I must admit the best venue I have seen Leonard play was the grounds of the old Royal Kilmainham Hospital,Dublin, (now The Irish Museum of Modern Arts), even in the pouring rain! Looking forward already!

Jarkko has been more than fair to us with info. Generous, I would say.

He has said for some time that there is going to be a British tour and yesterday, when Wendy asked when the announcement might be, he replied 'Next week.'

let's sit tight, with fingers crossed. Just don't tell my wife that's why the holiday has not yet been booked .....

When I first saw the title of LH Hunter's thread " Is it becoming slightly stale?" way back in early March, I thought he was referring to the lack of news regarding a UK/Irish tour. Well, it is over six months since the London O2 concert was announced !
After months of f..f.. frustration comes the encouraging posting by Jarkko,"Next announcement tomorrow, Friday May 17th, at 9am UK/Irish time."
Could it be after all this time? Thanks in anticipation, Jarkko.

Would not mind a trip to Manchester - my second L.C. concert
was front row centre at the M.E.N. arena ....

It would need to be near the weekend though - work keeps getting in the way of my fun ...

One can never be certain about anything but I think we can be fairly sure that there will be a British tour. Of course the uk shows could be in strange locations like Hull, Shetland isles, Aberystwyth, etc but again I reckon they will probably be in places like manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Newcastle, Cardiff, glasgow
