Why does so much good stuff have to be happening in February? I have to miss Iced Earth, possibly Megadeth and Motorhead and now this too? :bouville:

They went to the States in the summer so I don't know except them to come back soon.

The name of the tour is: Smoke on the nation.

Terrible name. People already think you're a one song band (which is a shame.) Don't reinforce it.

They probably won't soon but I wasn't gonna drive to New Jersey to see orchestra bullcrap last summer. Just play the songs the way they were written, guys. It was already good before.

Anyone who DOESN'T want to see the orchestra show is a moron.

As someone who's never seen them in concert, I would much rather see them as they are meant to be heard. That's why my dad and I skipped them last year. Also, it's really sad that Ian can't sing Child In Time anymore. When they got to that point, they should have just hung it up.

Skipping them was a huge mistake. I understand also wanting to see them "pure", but that's irrelavent. They fantastic with the orchestra.

And saying they should have quit just because Ian can no longer sing one song is just plain stupid. There are songs people like Halford can't do anymore. Should he have stopped years ago too?

I'm glad that you enjoy them with an orchestra, but that's not how I want to see them.

Ya, that's very true about JP. And seeing DP would still be amazing even without CIT.

You'll regret it. They probably won't do it again. At least not in the US. The UK might get another chance, but I doubt it. New album next year is probably going to be their last.

So they are going to do an album? It seems like there's been several false starts.

As far as I'm aware, yes they're going to do one, it's just that they (Ian and Roger) haven't really felt like doing one for some time.

I honestly think they're settling into Twisted Sister territory a little bit.
