    Man I really hope this comes to Phoenix! I know they just played Tucson in Sept, but I was in LA for Within Temptation so I couldn't make it. One of my all time favorite bands and albums!

    I wish they would do one of the Pornograffitti shows in Canada. They played two festivals this summer, and both were shorter sets. Need to figure out if I can make it down to any of these shows.

    I was totally committed to going, but then I checked ticket prices. Unless I'm looking at some kind of VIP package, it shows standard admission 100 bucks. I'm sorry but I'd hesitate to buy tickets for a full Styx reunion show with Triumph as the opener for that price. Please tell me I'm reading this wrong.

    I hope they add more dates. Kind of low profile for them

    Don't worry, Random Axe,

    After Ticketbastard fees, the tickets should cost no more than $42.00 at any given show on the tour. My heart skipped a beat when I looked on the House of Blues website for the Chicago date, as they were showing a $104.50 price tag. However, when I went to the Live Nation page, I saw a much more reasonable price.

    As for you, Jason, you're damn right I won't play any gigs on January 28th! While you're at it, keep February 1st scratched out, too. I'm not missing Uli Jon Roth and Vinnie Moore in the same night for anything!


    Stay metal. Never rust.

    What about having them for our "Festival d'Été" in Quebec City. That would be great!

    Pretty cool, but MD is the closest one to me.

    I'm very disappointed they're not coming down south, because they were a very fun band to see in their prime. I caught them five times in the early to mid 90's:

    1990: Headlining The Rave (small Milwaukee club) with Alice in Chains opening (Obviously, this was before anyone knew who AIC was)
    1991: Opening for Winger in 1991 at the Riverside Theater
    1991: Opening for Cinderella and David Lee Roth at the World Music Theater in Chicago
    1993: Opening for Bon Jovi at the Marcus Ampitheater in Milwaukee
    1995: Headlining the Rivera (or the Vic) in Chicago

    All of the shows were high-energy performances with a band that was incredibly tight to see live. Hopefully, they'll expand those gigs, or perhaps take part in a nostalgia tour fur a summer run (perhaps co-headlining with Poison)

    Poison does not deserve to grace the same stage as Extreme.

    True, but that's likely the best chance of seeing Extreme on a major tour in the summer.

    Besides Poison has been a pretty good high-energy live band in the past--even if they lack zero creativity when it comes to a setlist.
