Wow to all the added dates. #thud# I think we have the Phoenix show cancellation to thank for this. Doubt they would be doing all these shows if they weren't going to already be in the US.

Apparently I was under the impression that Festival Supreme was traveling through these cities, especially since the venues are so big. Finally figured out that it was just the LA show. #doh# + :o

ADD: Then again, there were some pretty big venues this summer. The Houston venue holds 16k and Dallas 6k (thought they were both the same from Oddball, but Dallas is not).

I am legit thinking about going to a couple of these shows. #shy#

Is anyone else considering any of them??

ADD: I'm not sure why I feel like they've just announced a long awaited tour after years away and that I haven't just seen them a couple of weeks ago. #haha# I'm all panicky and shit thinking about how I can make this happen. 8-)

Come to Texas! #cheer# #cheer#

But really, I probably won't have anyone to go to these shows with since they're in the middle of the week and not in Austin. And I have a car. #eyelashes#

Jessica!!!! #glomp# I was hoping you'd chime in here. #haha# #love3#

The two shows I'm eyeing up just happen to be the two Texas shows! (for obvious reasons :P ) I was already in the early stages of planning at trip there sometime in October before I even found out about these shows! How convenient riiiight??? ;)

Could this be Jessica and Ami's Texan Odyssey Part 2? #evilgrin#

Unless we can convince anyone else to join us?? #stirthepot#

I was seeing sites like that before the last couple of times tickets on sale too. >:(

I don't know if they actually have tickets yet or if they just hope like everyone else that they have them and are so confident that they will get them they start advertising them early?? It's beyond sketchy though.

Yeah, was wondering if that was what they were doing. And it was showing up in what looked like press releases from them issued to radio and news stations, which is gross.

I somehow missed the giant "SPECIAL GUEST DEMETRI MARTIN" at the top, looked at the first date and went, "Cynthia Woods is new to me." #doh# #thumbsdown# #shy# #rofl#

Random observation, but I just recently realized where the inspiration came from for their new tour branding color scheme...

Side by side it's too coincidental for it to not be intentional. The real question is, did they choose it just because they liked it or to help honor David Bowie? (Both, probably.)
