Why...

Why do you think this tour is starting in Vancouver?

Tax write-offs for the HBO special. So many American TV shows film in Vancouver for the exact same reason X-Files, Bates Motel, The Returned (American version)

Fair enough - but titling a thread 'if...' is just... wrong

Hey how about you contribute to the guys post/thread rather than trying so hard to be an asshole. I read your original post in here and was genuinely trying to think of reasons why they chose Vancouver but then I read that you're just trying to make a point and ridicule another member of the forum(seems to be your MO lately) so I thought nah fuck that. I'm not answering his question. Instead I'll make a point. Mission accomplished.

OK, legit though.

What is this HBO special?

As well, Vancouver isn't well known for its poutine, not like Quebec.

It's all about the Japadogs, dude.

The NY Times article mentioned that a film crew was on hand during rehearsals for what will apparently be an HBO documentary. I'm thinking it will follow them throughout the tour and be released next year as a means of promoting the move to outdoor stadiums.

That would be awesome. I'm thinking its maybe more of a one off 1 or 2 hour special. I like your idea much better though especially if it became a series ala the Foo Fighters Sonic Highways thing. Obviously focusing on the tour though than the album process.

The tour is starting in Vancouver because they wanted to make it easy for me to get to a tour opener for the first time. Because they love me dearly.

Vancouver for ease of access, It's a major hub. Lots of Arena's and stadiums to rent to rehearse, and the canadian dollar currently sucks. As for your itty bitty thread title; I think it is cute and love it!
