After 20 years of waiting for you to come to England, we blew our savings and travelled to Tampa to see you in 2010 now you are coming our way but only to the Isle of Wight! Please, please, please organise some mainland England venues. Let us have the opportunity to repeat the fabulous evening we spent in Tampa.

Yippee. Coming to The Rock June 3. Saw the band in 2008 and 2010 in NY at MSG. Great show. "You don't know how it feels. No, you don't know how it feels."...and pre-sale for TP & HB fan club members to boot.
