North American tour announced with Bob.
« on: July 18, 2012, 06:20:06 pm »
Very interesting given that both artists have new albums coming out.
Don't really understand whats in it for Mark this time.He could do full shows as he has a new album.

Just seen the info.   He's a fan of BD for sure - hmmm.   So he won't be doing promo on the new release until the New Year.  :(

I don't wan't time to pass so quickly - but roll on 2013

Hope you guys over the pond enjoy it and keep us informed.

It's a 32-date tour over 8 weeks, which isn't too bad for senior citizens.

Based on the gaps in the tour, LA and Chicago look possible for a second show each.

With Thanksgiving being on 22 November this year (I think that's right), I doubt there'll be an extra show in the New York area after 21 November but you never know.

My guess is that it might go up towards a 34-date tour

I'll be going to Philadelphia for sure.  That's probably it for me.  I hate paying twice the money to see MK for half the time, but I'm very excited to be seeing him this year at all, so I'm not complaining :)
It's hard sometimes but pretty much it's alright

So we have the first AMIT'er at a show, joanzimm!  ;)  What about Isaac, maybe he will following this tour again, although the Bob part didn't make a big impression on him last time it seems...

We sat next to Isaac at Manchester and, no, he certainly wasn't impressed at all with Bob.  ;)

No immediate plams but we hope to catch at least one show on the tour.

I wonder if Dylan will continue to use the baby grand on stage.

A 75 minute show  + 20 minutes playing with Bob, that's not so short. He is in great shape and happier than ever to play with Bob.  :)
You will love it and it's worth the money !  ;D

It looks like a Dylan tour with MK in support, as in Europe last year. Does anyone know for sure? Maybe GF could tell us.

By the way, an official e-mail I got directing you to the "bd.com" webpage had an advert for the tour but it was a strange thing - it was for a Hollywood Bowl concert on 25th August (not 26th October)!

Brooklyn!! Wow, I never thought MK would play in my birthplace! It sure will be a happy Thanksgiving for me, but I won't spring for my usual 1st row seats until we get MK alone in 2013!

I never ever received news about MK concerts so calmed, relaxed, like nothing was happening... I guess thats what the distance has. NA is so far for me and as there is no chance to attend any of the shows, actually I didnt mind about it...

I guess that as the dates approache, I

Shai, please me something about the Brooklyn venue. I know it's a brand new building and that the first concerts there will not be until September but I believe other concerts are set for there.

Someone told me that Leonard Cohen will be all seated but I've also heard that concerts will be general admission there. General Admission or all-seated or part-GA/part-seated?

I've also been told that tickets are commonly $300 each there. Is that true? Is it a regular price? If it's a 19000-capacity venue for concerts, what does $300 buy?

So what's the local information?
