I was just looking over shows at the Gramercy theater and they have Gamma Ray headlining on Jan. 28th. Has anyone heard anything about this?

Will be at the New York City show, no question. It's been over 4 years since I saw Gamma Ray and they are fantastic live.

i'll be at the Hollywood date. i've always wanted to see them, and missed them on the Helloween tour for some reason.

I hate when bands do this. I probably wouldn't go if they came here, but just saying...

I can't really blame bands for not doing extensive tours if they don't have the draw to fill places all over the country. I mean, this is still very slim, and there's no doubt in my mind that Gamma Ray could draw good crowds in more cities than they're playing, but I just can't blame bands for not doing 25 date tours and playing 10 shows with 50-100 people. There's no money in it.

Yeah, its pretty nice, you should try it. The best part is taking the train, esp if there's a bar car

How do they know how many people they'll draw unless they actually do a large tour and play more places? The only way to find out is to play all over the place and see how many people show up. If bands like In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, Blind Guardian, and As I Lay Dying can do it, Gamma Ray surely can. I find it hard to believe that a band who's been around since 1990 and has 10 albums isn't at least as popular as the bands I just mentioned over here.

Strange to do all of that traveling for 5 shows in the middle of winter. I will definitely be at the Chicago show, weather permitting.

This clearly isn't selling well. They just "announced" the same dates again today.
