I’m very doubtful that these rescheduled dates for October and December will go ahead.
I wonder if the guys will do anything at all this year? I’m hoping that they will do a stream show - a July 4th live stream would be amazing.
With how things are in the US in particular, where wearing face masks during a pandemic has somehow become a political issue, I also highly doubt it sadly.
I highly doubt it but if they're on, I'm going 😂
I wish they'd make a decision. On the bright side, 2021 is shaping up to be a great concert year lol
and there goes the fall dates.
It's a pity the Brian Johnson doc revealed a USP for the van tour should it ever go ahead. (of course pre-Covid the interview would've followed the tour so it wouldn't have been a surprise...still.)
ah i didn't see it last night as was not near a computer/tv. what was mentioned or is it worth the wait should things go ahead eventually?
I mean, it's not a massive deal & once they would've played the first show its not a surprise, BUT - they were playing the van shows in the round so that they could drive the van across the arena floor & right up to the stage, unload, play the set, get back in the van, drive out.
ah ok fair enough.
There's a piece online about First Avenue adding a George Floyd star to their marquee & while addressing the clubs struggles since COVID it says "What was supposed to be a celebratory year at the club — even the Foo Fighters had booked a surprise gig — has instead found First Ave fighting for its and other venues’ future."
Which kinda lines up with what the Van Tour announcement alluded too:
[playing] in arenas this time, because aside from many of those clubs on that 1995 trek having since ceased to exist, squeezing a 2020 FF show into the few that are still around would just be too insane…
… or would it? Stay tuned for the answer to that question. Or answers…
The tour would've been Arena shows interspersed with club gigs at the 1995 venues that still existed.
Gaaaah! That sounds too good 😖
I believe I mentioned it on this board before, but the local alternative station here in Minneapolis already had wind of them coming back to the area this year. And all signs seemed to indicate First Avenue for the 25th anniversary.
Sad to see it confirmed, but I suppose that's life. Would have been insane trying to get a ticket for that anyway!
