Dearest Jarkko, that sounds bleak indeed. And yet we can do nothing but be grateful for what we are given.

Dear Jarkko,

When you say the book of future tours is blank, does that mean there will be no more tours? I am a little confused by the way this is put.

So ... the book already exists ... and they just have to pencil in the dates and cities.

I am truly ever so grateful for all the UHTC concerts I have been fortunate to attend.
But it would be more than wonderful if some time in the future (book) Leonard could maybe find a moment or two to put pen to paper and blacken some of those now white blank pages with just a few city names :D

EDIT: @ Hartmut, I've just read your post and I don't want it in pencil - I want it indelibly written!

I think there will be a "Farewell Tour" if Leonard is able. He looks great and knowing him we know he is restless. It will not be a very long tour but I think he will perform one more time "for all his Fans" Let us hope and pray it will happen. If not he left us with a lot of beautiful memories for years to come.

Can't know for sure , but i'm guessing that if Leonard knew for sure he won't tour again he would say so and this would be the place where he would make the announcement . He already has ruled out tours in various time periods and communicated this to jarkko .Repeatedly saying or implying ' not now , but never say never' seems to me to make a future tour less and less likely as time and his age advances .
As for a ' farewell tour ' , maybe he has already done that ! The last time i saw him - amsterdam 2013- he said in his opening comments ' Friends , this is our last concert in Europe , I don't think we'll be back '... though he then added ' for a while'.
Who knows?

At the December 2013 concert in Auckland, Leonard made mention that the band had been on tour for five years, and that this was the very last concert of that tour. It felt pretty final to me.

Yes, it felt pretty final to me too, as did the issue of a CD souvenir of the grand tour.

What will be will be.
