I am glad it is postponed. I thought I skipped it tonight, until I logged on to see it was postponed. Maybe when they get the shows added on at the end of the tour, I will be in the mood for the concert.

this happened to me too on the Final Straw tour


originally the concert was scheduled for Sept 2004, but it was postponed until May 2005... it'll be one year ago today, in fact!

BOSTON POSTPONED!!


Hello all.

Im terribly sorry about all this. I of course appreciate all your kind words over the last few days but I also know that is must be frustrating for all you guys with tickets.

I saw a specialist yesterday and had to wait until the venues and various folk were informed before I could post. I understand that the Boston show has already been taking down. Im sorry it didnt come from me but this is true. Ill now tell you why.

The specialist (who treats such luminaries as Celine Dion and Aliass Ron Rifkin. Odd pairing) found something more than just a sore throat. Using a long metal device, which I dont relish ever being pushed down into my vocal chords again (roll on Thursday for my follow-up), the doctor found two polypoid lesions (or polyps) on my left vocal chord. These are caused by vocal abuse or over-use and look like little blisters on the chords.

So what am I doing to hurry my recovery? The thing is, as innocuous as these little polyps look, they are the early stages of something, potentially, a lot more worrying. They could, if unchecked, lead to the other side of my chords over compensating and in doing so gain some polyps of their own. They could also lead to muscular problems outside the chords due to the same over-compensation. The good news is that the doc seems to think that we caught them early and she is not too worried as things stand. She has prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and complete vocal rest for the next few days. I see her again tomorrow to see if the drugs and rest have had a quick impact (which she thinks they may have). Unfortunately she is out of town this weekend so I cant see her before the New York show but tomorrows check-up may show enough progress for her to be happy with me having the few more days of rest before Saturday to be fine for New York.

I am fine otherwise and I am sticking to her very simple regime. Ill tell you this, New York is a hard city to watch from a hotel room but there are worse things in life. For example, not being able to sing again.

I am so very sorry about all this. It is completely my fault for not taking better care of my voice. The voice is an instrument and I should learn to take care of it as such. When I have it back and working again I wont take it for granted anymore.

Thank you all for your kind words. They mean a lot. We are at present trying to reschedule these postponed shows for as soon as possible. All details will be made available to you when we know.

Im off to be silent. Sshh! I mean, sshh.x

This sounds scary... Hopefully things get better for him soon so he's 100% for when the shows do take place.

it sounds like he has the same problem a friend of mine had a few years ago. He wasn't a singer but his voice sounded like shit for a about 3 months.

Well, that's a cheery thought...

Let's hope he doesn't have the same thing then.

Over the past two weeks the Eyes Open album had sales of 82,000 and 66,000 worldwide. Total global sales for Eyes Open now stand at 425,000! In the United States, the album has fallen to #72 this week. Total sales in the United States are close to 70,000!

I hope Gary feels better soon!

More postponed dates!



NEW YORK, PHILADELPHIA, MONTREAL AND TORONTO POSTPONED!

I had another check up yesterday and my little friends are still hanging on for dear life and my throat looks raw apparently. To be honest I still find it hard to look at it long enough to see what the doc is getting at. I believe her though.

She said for me to take a week from yesterday to recover. So the first gig I would be ready for would be Friday the 9th in Pontiac, Michigan. This would mean postponing a few more dates of course.

However, straight after seeing the doc the elite triumvirate of our agent (Marty Diamond), our manager (Jazz Summers) and our tour manager (Neil Mather) sprang into action like some magical, yet functionary, ballet to reschedule the dates. For the most part they will be added to the end of this US tour in and around the last week of June.

I hope that you can all make these new dates and I’m sorry again for hassle.

g.x

The rescheduled dates are as follows:

Please note the change of venues in Atlanta and Boston. This means there will be more tickets available for those of you who missed out the first time. Montreal has been put into the October tour schedule, which will be announced in the coming months.

June 22nd - Atlanta, Tabernacle
June 23rd - Washington DC, 930 club
June 25th - Toronto, Kool Haus
June 26th - Philadelphia, Electric Factory
June 27th - New York, Roseland
August 15th - Boston, Bank of America Pavilion

Well, Detroit just got postponed.

In looking at the SP message board, a 38 year old male fan from Holland, MI who also saw SP in Dublin (like I did) with U2 was going to the show. Where is Blue Room from?

Well, that was more last minute than the other ones. That's too bad.

They're just lucky we didnt make the drive. Pontiac is a good one hour drive from my house, and Friday traffic in that area is a nightmare.

Is anyone else thinking if they end up having to postpone another full week of shows that they might be better off just cancelling the rest of the tour and coming back in early 2007, seeing as how they have European dates scheduled well into December.
