Got to say, I'm pretty bummed that they'd line up state fairs in the US in smaller markets and only play four Canadian Dates... two of which are in Toronto (at two different venues, btw)... Quebec City???  Sarnia????

Why not Montreal if you're going to play in Quebec? More fans in Montreal/eastern Ontario than in Quebec City.

And Sarnia over Ottawa or Vancouver? That caters more to the Detroit crowd.

Gotta say, I'm thrilled they're touring but the only geographic chance I'd have to see them is in Toronto and it looks like I won't even be in Ontario when their concerts are scheduled. sad.gif

Seems the boys have short changed their Canadian fans.  wtf.gif

Come on... 37 shows and only four in Canada? Where they're from?

That's weak. Easy to say it's bitching when you're from the US, where you're getting 33 shows.

Well...the good news is, there may still be more dates to be added.

Hopefully...there will be some for you Western-er's! I imagine it sucks to have one of your favourite bands playing, and you can't make it to shows.

I'm actually lucky...living right near Toronto means potentially 2 shows!

Hopefully, you guys will receive some good news in the near future!

I just reviewed their US dates... I could make their Syracuse NY show on Sept. 2. Just means a 3.5 hr drive both ways.

This. I'm sure the northwest portion of the continent will get some love on the 2011 tour.

Amen!

Halifax hasn't seen the band since 87' (I think, I wasn't even born), and it has a HUGE fanbase that would love to see our heroes rip it up on the commons.

To the unhappy posters in this thread:

Okay guys, I know you're upset that they aren't coming around your area this tour - I'd probably be pretty pissed too - but remember, there will be another tour next year - a bigger tour with almost double the stops...

Sort of similar in the way that most NHL teams are in the United States, too.
