So that is now four consecutive years they've played a handful of Euro festivals. They must pay well!

Will see Jeff there!

If nothing is announced for UK shows I will probably end up doing a couple of Euro festivals but not booking anything until I see what the whole of 2020 looks like.

They won’t not announce anything for the uk, so I wouldn’t worry there.

I think there will be several UK shows - can't see them missing out the UK.

Prague seems like a nice city to have a foo gig between festivals... never been there either so win win if that can be managed?

I'm so done with festivals. I'm only doing this one in Vegas because its the last USA date for a while and I won the ticket.

I want to do Pula again - that was so much fun and an amazing venue.

Except for the local venue security people

Yeah, local security there were arses. Pula was a lovely venue. The bigger the venue , the more chance of a greatest hits set. So hopefully there will be some arena or tiny shows.

I'm hoping for a mix of big shows (music for the masses) and then some smaller shows where they can go away from the 'greatest hits' setlist.
