Bobcat, I would LOVE to see them play The Chance--I always prefer small clubs any day over the big ones--I personally hate going to those festivals and sitting through band after band. Maybe we'll all get lucky and they will add a few smaller gigs--who knows? even Poughkeepsie. They played the Starland in February 2009 and I don't recall if it sold out or not--but I cannot imagine that it is cost effective to play small clubs over big festivals. I don't ask them about finances and paychecks (that's a bit personal--none of my business)

I cannot speak for the band--but I have had an opportunity to speak TO the band on many occasions. They do truly and sincerely appreciate all of their loyal fans who have supported them over the years. My understanding, based on what I've heard them say, is that it is just not possible to tour today the way bands once toured in the 80's. Not only do they have families but lots of other diverse projects as well. The road is brutal--the bands aren't indestructible 20-somethings anymore.

Last summer, Twisted only played two shows in the U.S.--both festivals--both had dismal attendance. Compare to that the shows in South American, UK, Sweden--many sold out, and attracted tens of thousands of fans and those fans were absolutely rabidly insane for TS.
This tour is a gift--each show is special. Rather than lament that they aren't playing your town, consider making the trek to NYC....or Boston...or Philly...or NJ...when they play there instead. I promise you won't be disappointed.
