There's no money in it.
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.
