Jarkko, you always did love casually dropping the "P" word on us ;-)

.....but I have noticed the absence of another "P" word so that could maybe narrow it down considerably!

Patience is a virtue I still have to work hard for :oops: But I guess it must be worth it. Can, t however stand the temptation of making some wild guesses. Will it be a:

-New album with previous unreleased songs?
-New album with material similar to String reprise/ Treaty? ( I hope so)
-New book with previously unreleased poems?
-New DVD with live performances and backstage of the last tour(s)

Any of these would be very welcome, are there any other suggestions?

I don't think it's Poetry, as in a previous thread where he said there would be announcement, I asked him whether he could deny if it was a book of poems and he said it wasn't.

But then he could have been tricking us ;)

Dear Marie & Jarkko,
I have cancelled any arrangements that I had made for the next few months, reserved hotel accommodation near all major venues,ordered an new HiFi,TV and blue-ray player.
I have a brand new pair of reading glasses, signed the petition to keep the forum open and set an alarm for mid-August.

Is there anything else I should do to prepare myself?

Maybe motion sickness pills. In Canada the main brand is Gravel.

My guess is a Cohen Theme Park. A Bird on the Wire interactive coaster with a Captains River Boat ride. Of course there will be Tea & Oranges for sale at Suzanne's Dockside Diner and a Paper Thin Hotel for guests who can afford to spend the night (ear plugs provided at a small additional charge).

~~
... looking forward to what ever it may be.

Let's hope so, Phillip. I don't care much for tribute concerts.
