Shifty touring with The Gimme Gimmes?
 
Does anyone know if Shifty is touring with the Gimme Gimmes?

Just bought my tickets for the Mily Way show in Amsterdam for February 2014.

Anyone else going?

Would of thought not as Chris said that the Foos are starting to record the next album early next year?

Makes sense.

Will know it when I see it. Will be fun to watch them with him live for once. Until now I've had no luck with the Shifty - Gimme combination :(

He's not playing with them in Aus in just over a week. Most of the time I forget he's actually meant to be in the band... his brother is cooler anyway:p :rolleyes:

Gimme's never tour for more than a week or so at a time so I guess it's possible he could take a break from Foo, but it'd probably only happen if Scott was too busy Face to Facing.

It appears that they have antisocially announced two UK dates, both in the South.

Have a word with them next week G. Ta, muchly.

Yeah end of Feb/beginning of March. Wonder if Chris will do those dates. Hopefully a show up North will be announced.

I doubt Chris will be over, he hasn't been the last two times they have played here. Scottlet will be playing I assume.

And I doubt they will announce any more, don't see why they wouldn't have announced them all at the same time if that was going to be the case.

Hey, I'm just passing on useful information. :D I'm as annoyed as the next person that they don't appear to want to come north though.

I'll see what info I can hug out of Middle Shiflett but knowing him he won't even know himself:p He's doing well if he knows what city he's in at the time:lol:

I've never seen the Gimmes so am pleased they are playing one of my favourite London venues! :thumbsup:

I don't exactly follow their every move but when was the last time he did play with them?

They recorded new material a few weeks ago, on 606, with Chris
But I think Scott wasn't on the sessions...

He played a show or two in Canada a month or 2 ago, and maybe Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas?

Europe is gonna get Fake, not Flake Jake... And Jay Bentley rather than Mike or Melvin!

But Jay Bentley and Scott Shiflett. I think that's a pretty great deal.
(I am actually a little bit jealous)

I wasn't counting on Chris to come. The other guys are great too.

Just really looking forward to the party that is the Gimmies :D

Was rather hoping they were coming up to Manchester or Liverpool, but alas,no.
