Prague Castle? [NO]

Postby Shinjuku » Thu Mar 13, 2008 5:19 pm

Well, as you can see he's due to play Prague Castle on 10th August. What a GREAT venue. It will be open air in the Castle Grounds. I am speaking to friends in the Czech Republic about this and seeking ticket information. If I have any news I will post it here immediately. Has anybody else seen any ticket details for this show?

I do not think we can book it, but I will give you the link as soon as I found it.

Looks like the organisers have finally announced that Prague is not going to happen. I don't speak Czech and I can't find a working online translator, but the news on this webpage doesn't look good:

http://www.1015.cz/index.php?l=cz&od=0& ... =&n_id=228

Translation, anyone?

Also, the page linked to above announcing the concert has disappeared.

As announced in several other threads, the summer leg of the tour ends on August 3 in UK. This means that Prag and other tentative August dates will not happen. The tour may continue after the summer break if everything goes well, but we don't have any cities nor dates yet.

Yeah, they (10:15) say the show's postponed, they seem 100% positive it ll happen. But as Jarkko says... it probably won't..

Well, I was speaking about the August dates. I have mentioned in in this and several other threads that if everything goes well, the tour MAY continue in the fall. For the time being we don't have any details (cities, venues, dates) and it will take quite long until we do... Meanwhile we can keep our fingers crossed!

That would be fantastic, in the unlikely event it happens...but does anyone else who's been to the castle grounds have a hard time envisioning enough people to make the guarantee? I don't remember anyplace there that could hold a 4-digit number of people in a way that they could hear and see a concert. Maybe there have been other good-sized concerts there someone could tell me about and prove me wrong?
