They do, but Speckmann got fucked over as well. Instead of hiring two people to just play the same exact set every night of the tour, he planned on having the guys that had been backing him for the last 10 years come with him. When they were in the process of flying out, customs literally stopped them for no real reason and said they couldn't come to the US cause they thought the guitarist and drummer were terrorists or some shit like that. He was forced to cancel the tour and lost a lot of money on it. I'm seriously surprised he's still willing to tour the states because the tour in 2009 was very unsuccessful.
