If you look at the promo pics on Louder than war, Rat and the Captain are standing as far away from each other as they can, I really think its all about the money, but good luck to them, I'm sure it will great if it happens with bat virus hanging around. Lt Kudu.

I just read that they originally planned to announce in MARCH at the Vive le Rock awards so it's been planned for some time.

This will be something to look forward too in these depressing times and I hope they add more dates (Leeds)
I thought the Captain wouldn't be happy ‘relegating’ back to bass but good on him for doing so.
Where does it say the tickets are £80? That is a bit steep, I wont usually pay more than £40 for a ticket but there’s the occasional one off gig and this being one of them, I hope it’s successful and they add more dates.

I looked on o2 advance ticket thingy. It’s something like £67 for the ticket and around a tenner in obnoxious fees.

It's interesting. I was thinking last night they'll probably make over a million from this tour. Obvs that will get divided but still enough for a nice house in the country each.

My Manchester ticket is £60 face value, plus £8.90 fees.

Works out at £15 per original band member :grin: Worth every penny 8)

Try to see Green Day or Metallica or even Take bloody That for less than £100.. :lol:

Tickets for lovely Birmingham are £77.00, really a bit pricey, it's a bit cynical when you consider Rat and Captain hate each other, I think all dates will sell out very fast, maybe even today, so I wouldn't hang around.Lt Kudu.

I reckon if they can keep their shit together and do this tour then other dates will be announced
