Com'on guys announce London soon. I have checked with Wembley Arena and the O2 and both are clear for the week gap between Olso and IOW

So disappointed at the few NA dates...please add some more! (maybe MIlwaukee or Chicago..hint, hint ;) )

This is garbage - waited a lifetime and there are no England dates !!! The isle of white does not count - please London or Manchester or Liverpool I do not care which but lets have some England dates.

Please can you squeeze in a London or Manchester date! Just make sure it's not within three days of the Isle of Wight Festival otherwise i'll miss it ;-)

Come back to NY!!!

I realize this is fantastic news, but why only 1 date in the UK??? it'd be an awful shame to come all this way, after all these years and only play 1 show, Sorry to sound like an ungrateful sod, but it's just going to be soooo expensive and times are hard. You guys are worth every penny but still.

Are they really serious? What the hell are they playing at, a European tour with no Uk dates (IOW festival) does not count - 99% of those there will not even know a TP song) Stop this messing around and add a London gig for pity sake. Has London become a 'don't come around ehre no more' location? There is a 7 day gap between Oslo and IOW so PLRASE PLEASE ADD A LONDON DATE

Why no date in MA?
charliegirl's picture

Disappointed the only England date is the Isle of Wight festival, we've been waiting sooooo long. Could you squeeze in one more England date pleeease. London, Birmingham, anywhere?

C'mon guys we've waited long enough lets have some more uk dates. Last time I saw you was Sheppards Bush Empire and this time I have to stand in a big Field!

This is the best chrismas gift i could ever wish for :)

There is free dates between 16 - 21 June. Is IOW classed as England?
ashleyscrace's picture

Very disappointed with these dates. The nearest one is a small holiday away from me (in another country!) No more in England than Isle of Wight? Please please please! Maybe even Hard Rock Calling ;)
ashleyscrace's picture

Bit disppointed that the only England date is the Isle of Wight. Other are in Ireland and I've not got the money to go travelling (or time off!) No London/Manchester/Sheffield/Newcastle/Birmingham dates? Any one of them would do. Don't really want to spend the money on a Germany trip if I don't have to
bondiddle's picture

Woohoo I'm saving to go at least 10 shows!!!

We've been waiting all our lives
signeperry's picture

Will there be presale tickets available for members?

I hope this isn't the final list! I'm hoping for some more US dates during july and august to finish out the summer!

Any chance? We've been waiting all our lives...
