And I think they can only put on a full blown show with pyrotechnics if they're playing in an arena or amphitheatre, and while they may be popular enough in North America I don't think they're big enough to pull in a big enough audience to do a full arena tour and sell enough tickets so that they don't lose money on the tour. I guess this MSG date could be an indicator of whether or not they could do a full arena tour, but with 8 million people in the city and i'm sure people willing to travel from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut it still may not be a good enough indicator of whether or not they could pull the same audience in say a city like Denver. I mean the show they played in Quebec City was with them headlining on the last day of a festival, but I know for sure a number of people from Toronto and Montreal (and i'm sure Ottawa as well) attended that show, as if i'm not mistaken that was their first Canadian show like, ever.
