Worst tour route EVER!


Nah, he's done it before on this Festival tours in the early 90s. He played Ireland between two shows in Spain in 1993, and went from Portugal straight to Switzerland during the same tour, for example.

In recent years he simply avoided the logistically challenging festivals, whereas this year he's not. Guess he knows that he always can play smaller headline shows, but might not be a major festival attraction much longer.

If Barolo is the only Italian date, what's left of the tour? Where are the several other Spanish dates that were to be announced? Can Carhaix really be the last date?

There's only ONE thing I don't like about the cheap tickets price, it will attract casual audience, and they'll spend the whole concert saying "Oh, he can't sing. Oh, no Blowin' in the wind?! Oh, I couldn't recognize a single song he played! Oh, he sucks!"

:shock: Oh, i understand you: i'd rather buy expensive tickets, to stay with the elite. Poor people don't understand art.

On the other hand, if not for the casual audience, the venue would probably be only half full.

oh, but people on here will tell you that rich people don't understand art either, they just buy up all the expensive seats. Funny, isn't it?

Seeing that Carhaix is a bit of a dead end geographically - absolutely.

This was exactly what I heard one of the casual 115-Euro-ticket-holders saying last year in Oberhausen say. Or was it Hannover? Maybe Nürnberg? Thinking of this, I believe it was someone in either of the towns. So it is nothing new and nothing relating to ticket prices.

(scusa)

I'm not rich, I spend money only on Bob's concerts, I'm only sharing my experience, last fall at Assago I was forced to choose a second ring ticket 'cause I couldn't get on time for the GA and i couldn't afford first ring. Well, they spent the whole concert saying how different Bob sounded from what they expected. You know, it was annoying.

Sorry, just thought the way you said it was shocking.
What is annoying is that they talk, whatever they say. But that happens also when the seats are expensive. That's another reason why the front row is the best place: people who have waited the all day long are not going to spoil their fun talking..

If it's 40° Celsius I wonder if Bob will wear the same suit.

Actually I'd say a few rows further back it's even better. Basically still people who came to see the show (not to talk) and know what to expect, but none of the headcases that tend to cling to the rail :lol:

Plane to Turin, then train to Asti, then another train to Alba then free bus to Barolo. That's the only way.

From Genoa is the same: Train to Asti, then train to Alba then free bus.


I'm going, a friend of mine will take me to Barolo by car.

By car, along the coast.

And yes, spring, summer, fall, same suite.

Spain 2008, sunny and hot.... but note the umbrella.

Barolo looks like a nice spot with its own little castle and some wine. Hmmmm....

Montreux tickets are CHF 350 and 320 (seated) and 108 standing.

Gasp! Even more than expected....there's also some sort of "Chicago Blues" tribute the same evening.

Same price for Van Morrison and Buddy Guy the night before.

Yes, anything among the first rows is good, people are listening and usually, they don't talk too much or too loud. But hey, it's not a church, it's a show where you go for fun!
I am a headcase, and most of the people in the front are my friends, so i feel good at the rail :)
