wow..that really is pricey! is it a stadium gig or something? how did you find out about this Lynati? i haven't seen any updates on the tour sections for Danko on this site or the 'official' one. i checked out the Coheed site...got excited 'cos i saw they're doing the kerrang tour in the uk in jan/feb next year. there's a show in Cardiff! and i thought yesss! i get to see Danko here at last! . but to my disappointment they're not on the kerrang tour bill . i didn't see any mention of Danko as support in any of the other european show listings either. are they only doing this one date?
come to think of it...how are we not hearing of all upcoming shows here, or on dankojones.com anymore? it used to be that they'd be posted in the gigs sections on these main Danko sites as soon as the date was announced. this meant that the gigs were officially confirmed, and us fans get to know about them in advance. if we don't get kept up to date, there might be shows people miss out on simply because they've not been publicised; or we could be unable to get tickets for fast-selling shows. and if Danko's playing support to another band, their name might not appear in that band's tour press or in gig guides...meaning you might miss them when they're playing somewhere near you. maybe the band are pressured with mastering the new album at the moment and JC doesn't have enough time to contact the admins with gig info. maybe he could delegate some work at busy times like this and get someone to handle the tour date e-mails for them. thanks to eagle-eyed fans on here though,at least we're getting some early hints of european shows.
I was bored and searched for bands at eventim (like ticketmaster) and well... there was ONE gig in Cologne with Danko Jones ;D it is in the Palladium - 4000 people fit in there. ..I don't really like the palladium because it gets damn hot in there -they have a really bad air condition.. but hey... I am happy ;D
Bronwen, check out the dj myspace site regularly and danko just sent a DJML, there are a few gigs on it:
We have two dates coming up in December: December 8 in Montreal @ Les Saints and December 20 in Toronto at The Horseshoe Tavern.
There's also a show on the Close-Up Baten Metal Cruise departing Stockholm, Sweden on February 14, 2008 and returning the following day. Also on the bill will be Soilwork, Municipal Waste, Avatar, General Surgery and our pals, The Backyard Babies. Hope you all can make it onboard. This show/cruise is being put on by Close-Up magazine (www.closeupmagazine.net) where I have a monthly column.
Following that we will be in Cologne, Germany @ The Palladium for the Visions Festival, co-headlining with Coheed & Cambria on February 16, 2008.
Truth be told, if there were any justice in this world, Danko Jones would be the biggest band from here and filling sold-out arenas instead of warming them up
