New Zealand hasn't been mentioned, although they have been given many reunion shows in the past (NYE2000, Nambassa99, 1993 Tour etc).

I really don't see where they are going to squeeze extra dates, especially for Sydney & Melbourne (most likely candidates).

Most of the band have fairly pressing commitments immediatly after Neil & Tim with solo albums coming out a month or two after and Eddie with NZ Idol, so I don't think the desire is there for a prolonged regional tour visiting every town in the Pacific Rim.

Well, I'm thoroughly delighted they're re-uniting at all. It's just sad that they aren't going to be touring for all that long. I really would have expected New Zealand to get shows.

Actually, I just heard recently there's at least perhaps a slight consideration to take this tour to New Zealand, so those of you who live there, don't give up hope just yet .

Apparently that same slight consideration applies to the U.S. as well . God, I hope that turns out to be true...*Crosses fingers and prays like mad*.

Rumour has it $90 - $120.

A small theatre tour would be great, but I think the prospect of seeing them in a huge arena is somthing deliciously new.

Well, we all know now this isn't happening, but apparently there was some interest in this very scenario. What I heard was there was a "slight chance."

Could have been interesting.

Yeah, no kidding, that would've been quite a show. I wouldn't have minded seeing that combination .

Just got my tickets with a brief panicky moment when Ticketek threw me off the site right when they were going on sale

I can't wait to get my credit card statement this month!

Got some nice floors for Sydney.

There is a second show that has gone on sale for Syd & Melb after sell outs in an hour or so.

I'm fairly confident there will be tickets for these for a while...

Really, timothius? Wow (sellouts in an hour or so...man...).

'Kay, so I decided that it is my goal to go out to Sydney in June for a show. I got a ticket today for the Sydney one. Next step, getting the money for the trip out there and back together .
