    i wanna see the damnation tour as well!
    you´ve just spent a lifetime in the us, come to a few gigs in europe and head to scandinavia. (ok, they really, really deserved it)
    in beginning of 2004 you (or the label, doesn´t matter) wanna start touring in the US again? WTF?
    shit, i´m pissed! :(
    what is the reason that europe isn´t getting the damnation tour?
    dammit.

    they would know why, better than me. ;)

    it´s just disappointing that it´s not the tour being expected, ya know?
    i wanted to see the damnation tour bad.
    i can´t see them coming back with it for another time. :(
    oh well.

    American tours = more $$. That's why.

    Despite the logistics of the situation, the revenue earned would make more than enough to cover the trip and hiring fees.

    why is an american tour more $$??
    it costs way more to ship the stuff overseas.

    in my opinion there is way more people to reach in europe.

    it´s not really the point though.
    we deserve a damnation tour as well.
    hopefully there will be some more dates.
    i just wanted to share my disappointment. :cry:

    cheers

    Europe gets enough metal shows as it is. Besides you're in Germany, the centre of Europe. With 8 shows, surely you'd be able to drive to another country?

    well, you know, if i would have enough time and money i could even go to the US to see them. :Smug:

    look, this is not only about me or the germans, you have to see the population here in europe. i´m probably not the only one seeing it this way! there is 80 million people only here in germany which is fitting several times into, lets say texas. :erk:
    the US have about 260-270 million right?
    the few gigs they are playing (so far i hope) are simply not enough.

    also i´m not complaining about the regular opeth tour i´m missing, but the probably one and only damnation tour.
    cheers

    I'm stoked we're getting them again in Jan/Feb '04! Speaking of money, I honestly think that Opeth should be charging more for their shows. The L.A. show I saw with PT was $17 (shit, that was the price of 2 Jack & cokes at the House of Blues where they played!). And the DVD show is only 12 pounds?

    I understand keeping ticket prices low for fans, but how about making the tour economically worthwhile so that more dates could be added? I honestly would pay $30, $50 or more to see one of the best shows on the planet, and I think most fans would also.
