Ok getting weirder with the US date / dates,

I personally don't see this as a funding of a record / something any more. The one-off Mexican stadium deal was easy to see as a fundraiser for something but this seems like a proper summer tour.

Maybe they just want to have some fun.

The Sonic tour was long and arduous and by then end of it the whole band looked worn out. So maybe they just want to get out for a few shows without the pressure of a full tour, and all that entails, and have a bit of fun.

It would be ideal if they played somewhere near Vancouver, BC on either the 1st or 12th/13th of September as I may be booking a holiday thing there and those are the days either side and could extend the trip by a day either side if needed be... (if I decide to book it).

For anyone thinking of going over to Bottlerock get your hotel room booked NOW.

As it is a holiday weekend the hotels are almost full already...I booked a room last night and there was not a lot of choice then and it was outrageously expensive.

Silly Foos, they don't need a passport to play the US.

Bam!

Got my Rock Werchter ticket.

I go every year, since 1995, but with the Foos coming, it's going to a whole lot better.

If they're only playing festivals, I hope they do Jazz Fest again. Might have to make a trip back out there for that, depending upon who else is on the lineup that weekend.

Hmm, wonder if/when they announce others. Last European gig is July 6, right?

Maybe it's like this

- demo phase / preproduction during spring

- shows over the summer to get the band back into the great shape they are in when touring. Will make recording the band easier.

- recording / mixing during the fall

To me at the moment it just looks like they are keeping the Watermark Background image visible. It may be there are no further stamps to be added!

There will be more U.S. dates. Probably all festivals. They're not putting up a map of the U.S. and only announcing 1 show in CA.

I think a Lollapalooza headlining slot could be very feasible.
