Thanks so much Jarkko as always. This is great news I had not expected this, I was hoping for 'far east' but this is amazing!!!

The touring pre-sales are at the same time by the looks, hopefully a potential fan one might be staggered, I have a few to buy in Auckland and Sydney and will do a couple of others also.

WOO HOO!!!!

What a lovely treat - to open today's newspaper and be greeted with the news of a LC concert in Melbourne later this year. I am almost reluctant to book, thinking that the 2009 concert could not be bettered! Would like to buy tickets for prominent political leaders - they need the rejuvanation that LC uniquely, irreverantly and wisely provides.

Blown away to hear that LC is touring again, the man must LIKE touring lol, I would have thought he was exhausted.

Last febs concert was the best concert i have ever been too, i was on cloud nine for days, and then have spent the last year working on a series of etchings/monotypes showing the effects of feeling so immersed in the music. Of course i had to have "live in london" playing in my studio. The series will be exhibited in august, although i have the odd couple of monotypes out in galleries now. AND now i get to relive all that wonder again!!

Will it be the exact same show as last time? Same line up? This info might be posted somewhere else on the site, but as yet i havent found it. Even if it is exactly the same show, i will be there, swallowing the lump in my throat, but this time, i wont be surprised by my feelings (and embarrassed) i will just let it rip!

thankyou leonard, you have made my day, (yet again)

I am sure we will hear the details today or tomorrow.
IF there is a Fan Club member presale, people registered to this Forum will qualify (and nobody else)
HUH? I AM SO VERY CONFUSED ... :shock:

I already have my tickets:)
Is this the same show that he presented last time or has it evolved?

The setlist will almost certainly have changed since January/ February 2009. Check out the setlists for all the shows right up to and including the last one in San Jose on 13 November 2009 on Maarten's website - http://www.maartenmassa.be/

We were even treated to 2 new songs back to back in Las Vegas and San Jose!

I have heard some suggestion that there will be more changes for the 2010 tour. However, there isn't much room for manoeuvre as there are so many favourites in the set which people will be expecting to hear. I guess we will know more when the 2010 tour starts in Zagreb at the end of next month.
