lol, got me the 80€ deluxe box, and got tickets (for now, as not all the shows have been announced yet, no french, no german or swiss shows etc..)
Brighton, Bournemouth, 6 nights at the Royal Albert hall, Antwerp, Amsterdam.
will do most if not all german shows...
the album is FAR better then the former one.
went to see him play at the Prince's Trust 40th anniversary gig, where he played with his promo band. and guess who was sitting like 3 feet next to me in front row, shaking his head to the music all night??
yep, Pete mofo Townsend!!

Well you of all folks know I'm kidding. ;)
Trying to convince the wife to let me buy pre-sale tickets tomorrow since we passed on him the last time he was in town... and the Chicago Theater is quite an exquisite venue as well. :drool:

Pottel, have you bought tickets through Mark's fan club website before ??

I'm hoping to get a really good seat this time around, Ive never had a seat closer than half way to the stage at any of Mark's shows.

yep. all of them.
last time around i got good seats.
the only problem is, you can only book (up to 4 ) tickets in a certain area, which you can be sure of is a great seating position, but you cannot actually select a specific seat.
in the RAH 6 shows i got all nights from row 1 to row 7 in the arena, thus awesome seats.
