Saturday, Sept 5th (Ft. Lauderdale)

Venues TBA. So rush to your calendar, count up your vacation days, tally up your pennies and let me know in the comments below which shows you will be attending.

Our knee-jerk reaction, with absolutely no confirmation of any details is that we will try to go to Vegas and NYC.

In more news, the tasty contents of the deluxe box set of Sounds of the Universe were released. A nice compilation of what’s included can be found here.

Finally, here is another in-studio video of Martin working on a synthy bit for the track “Wrong.” Also a rare look at what happens every time I call him on his cell. If I had his number, that is.

Enjoy. Attention: Super cute hair ahead. You have been warned.

    Sorry to say that I won’t be seeing them this tour. Travelling to see them isn’t in the budget. But I am saving for the deluxe set. Drool.

      Heather, that is a big bummer, but I totally understand! At least you got to see the last tour. I still cry at night about not seeing it.

    Last time I saw them in Denver for the first North American leg of the tour and then again in Kansas City for the infamous “Martin carries the show” concert with Dave getting ill.

    We’re hitting Dallas this time and praying that they announce another round of North American tours and put KC on again this time around.

      Betsey, I feel your pain! We were at the “hey let’s cancel the show” concert the next night in Chicago. Sad times! Here’s to the band’s good health and our happy travels!
