Why does all this advertising always start before things are confirmed?? It confuses me.
I think it's very likely that some dates are firm, with contracts signed etc etc (eg Paris, Toulouse and - hopefully - Koln & Berlin) but that we do not have any "official" news as there are more dates which are not yet confirmed. The policy for the past 12 months or so seems to have been for all the dates in the next leg of the tour to be announced together as a "package" so the unconfirmed dates seem to be holding up the rest.

Personally I just wish they'd get on with it and give Jarkko the go ahead to tell us what he knows!

That's be nice. But why not just announce what's confirmed and do the rest later.

Any idea if we are going to get a different setlist from last year? Good as it was he (and me) must be getting bored of it by now.

I'd really like to be at the concert in the bullring. There's not much that can beat a concert at a bullring. Does anybody know, if it's possible to fly directly into Gijon? Somehow I can't find any flights from Germany.

More concerts in Spain will follow - possibly also another bullring.

Jarkko, am I right in thinking Leonard will be doing Brussels again? Trying to decide whether or not to get Paris tickets tomorrow.
Thanks

Hi Midnight Choir,

I don't know whether you have already seen it on the other thread (if so, just ignore me), but at least Antwerp seems to be in ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asturias_Airport

the airport is 40km away from Gijón but it's well connected by bus (about 6€ one way 10€ return)

the best options are flying from London-Stansted (Easyjet), Madrid (Iberia) or Barcelona (Spanair) after reaching one of those main airports

it's a beautiful seaside town well worth the visit
