I don't understand this tour.  It sells out so quickly despite the highest prices.
I don't see why  they don't release the RAH dates.
O2 is not in competition with RAH , it it ???

Maybe they think that if the rah appears, the upper sections of the O2 will remain unsold...

Probably 2 concerts in the RAH like Tracker tour...

Yes, very much so. RAH is a much more appropriate venue to hear MK. I got caught last time buying O2 tickets because I didn’t know there were going to be RAH dates - I’m not falling for that again!

I checked today ticketmaster and the O2 arena site and there are still tickets available...

We are guessing that there will be Royal Albert Hall dates because it happened like that with Tracker tour too, and there are some big gaps in the tour schedule but last time we heard from Guy that there will be some more before it was announced, this time we don't have any single clue about any real chance of Royal Albert Hall dates...

However, MK gaps and RAH gaps coincide:

MK availability      /     RAH availability

20-23 May                      21-22 May

31st May - 6th June      31st May  - 5th June

If it's going to be any RAH date, I bet the 31st of May and 1st of June, just after Birmingham, same that happened with Tracker tour.

We await with baited breath!

I think a lot of fans know what they did last time out and are similarly waiting with baited breath.  Perhaps the O2 may struggle to sell as a result.  Silly way to go about their business and not nice to treat fans like this.  :think

Where do you take the idea from that the O2 is not selling well?
The mk.com link to ticketline has sold out its stock a while ago,
eventim has 2 seats left and ticketmaster only 31.
Only the O2 website has some more unattractive seats on the upper tier and a few at the end of the floor left.
I think it is selling well.

Pure estimation on my part to be honest as it wasn't sold out last tour and the sound was not good.
Of course the difference most probably this time is that the dream of RAH shows on this particular tour seems to be diminishing...

But that two gaps in the Ireland and British tour is too big and suspicious...

I agree the gaps indeed do fit, so fingers crossed. I would have thought we might of known by now as least?

Last time (2013...) it was 21st of January - we still have a few days. Also they are being late with everything, so it seems, I thing late January-early February is possible.
My bet is end of May, 2-3 dates.

Yet again, please, please, no FA on RAH.

If they use the same strategy like 2015 dates for the RAH will come in the next 2/3 weeks. In 2015 the concerts also took place at the end of may and they were announced end january.........

This waiting is killing me as the boss is asking us for our holidays preferences and I don't know what to do, LOL

The RAH is closing some concerts with others bands so their availability has changed a bit:

MK availability      /     RAH availability


20-23 May                      21-22 May

31st May - 6th June      1st June  - 5th June


Still Saturday 1st June and Sunday 2nd June available for a good weekend travel, but that 7 days gaps is a too big gap, so 21st and 22nd of May looks like more likely, if they are playing the RAH, of course... bad part is that are Tuesday and Wednesday...

You might get lucky, now and then
