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'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.
