I think we will get something like 1999 plus inclusion of Italy

Portugal 1-2
Spain 5-11
France 0-3
Italy 6
Probably: Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Hungary

That’s a reasonable guess, Nos.
Am hoping for a little more emphasis on Eastern Europe again, too.
Great that it’s unfolding!

2 or 3 nights in Glasgow would be nice


I may be no good in geography but as far as I know Glasgow is not in Southern Europe


Plenty of time for more dates to be added.

the best guess seems to be that he won't play in any European country he visited in 2017. The only exception might be France since he has to pass (Southern) France on his way to Italy (unless he flies directly from Spain to Italy, of course)

Yea,

My guess is that after Italy, he will continue to east (austria, slovenia, etc)

most of the tickets in Lisbon are sold ??? Is it true ? There are only a very few tickets left in the interior. Only on the sides in the upper area are still some available ..... that's strange . :o :roll:

Not that strange.
In fact, it’s been Standard Practice for quite some time.
In Sales, it’s called “creating a sense of urgency.”

By holding a bunch of the good seats hidden & unavailable , people who really want to go end up in a mini-panic and buy shitty sets to be sure they get in.

It’s good for the venue to dump these early so they can offer “better” seats for higher prices.
Then the better seats are released slowly as the date draws nearer for those
discriminating buyers who don’t like the nosebleeds.

All the while stating “there are only minimal seats left.”
Most venues will deny it and most do it.
It’s called “business” which drives toward “profit.”

So why not profit from the prophet?

March 30 it's Good Friday. I don't know the laws in Spain. I think for example in Germany it was not possible to perform on Good Friday. But 2009 Bob performed in the Netherlands on Good Friday.

Author:  Guthrie [ Sun December 3rd, 2017, 12:03 GMT ]
Post subject:  Re: 2018 - Rumors & Tour News

Maybe he will play March 29 and 31 in Barcelona.

Post subject:  Re: 2018 - Rumors & Tour News

Don’t they realize if he performs on the 30th, it’ll become GREAT Friday?

They could play Barcelona 3-31 and 4-1, 4-2 they could go to Rome and 4-3 will be the first Rome-show.

"March 30 it's Good Friday. I don't know the laws in Spain. I think for example in Germany it was not possible to perform on Good Friday. But 2009 Bob performed in the Netherlands on Good Friday".

That used to be a rule in Franco's fascist days/years. Fortunately they are (almost) gone.

Would like to see a Tangier show added to help commemorate the upcoming 2018 BS 14 Box.

Would like to see any show added! Anywhere. :(

My suggestion for the 2018 tour: I think Bob should play at least a couple of shows at Massey Hall in Toronto before it closes for two years of renovations in June. Gordon Lightfoot has the last nights (quite reasonably since according to the article linked below he has "performed over 166 times at Massey Hall" :!: ), but maybe Bob could make it there earlier in June.

https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/music/2017/12/04/gordon-lightfoot-to-close-out-massey-hall-before-two-year-revitalization.html

And, if this suggestion is taken I think they should give me some great seats for the shows :)

further to this, of he does play there, he should do 12 Gates to the City like in 2013 (complete with altered Massey Hall Shout-out lyrics and attempt to get the cried to sing along. they'd have had 5 years to learn the lyrics by then!)

I've never seen Bob at Massey Hall. That ain't right.

not too many possibilities for Barcelona, see: http://www.liceubarcelona.cat/en/calendari/2018-03
my guess is March 26 – since it's the only day without a name but a time (20:00)
