Is this the news and rumors thread?
Now that the tour has actually been going for 2 weeks, the band should know whether they are having a good time or not. So shouldn't we be hearing about the South American dates soon? Like really soon? Every day that they're not announced makes me a bit more worried that they're not going to happen.

Maybe...
We'll see...

If South American shows are happening in October then I would imagine they'd be announced and go on sale sometime in the next month.

One of their WORST setlist decisions EVER. The song seemed to be working beautifully live. And from the YouTube videos I've seen, the crowd seemed pretty into it as well. Just fucking baffling why they'd drop one of their best songs EVER, which they had finally just started playing after fucking decades. Fuck!
Preach !

.... if true, that really sucks for SOE.

Fuck it, Milk the US completely dry. Could do Atlanta, Carolina, St. Louis or Kansas City, Oklahoma, New Orleans, Detroit, Minneapolis, Buffalo, Denver, salt lake, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Oregon, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal. Then slide down to Mexico, then down to South America, then in early 2018 over to NZ, Australia, and then up to pacific rim Asia, and finish up in Hawaii. And just push SOE back another year, why not?

Shows in September would have to be announced soonish. Maybe that's been the holdup for the South American announcement... they want to do North America again in sep-oct.

It's not that I haven't been wrong before, but I absolutely do not believe there will be anymore US shows.

Besides, who wants to see empty stadiums in Atlanta, Carolina, St Louis/Oklahoma, New Orleans, Denver, Salt Lake and probably the others as well?

Hey, throw in Jacksonville (Florida), I still remember for POPMART around 15000 fans in a stadium that would hold around 70000 or more.

Makes sense to me. This tour seems to be doing a great job of getting the casuals out, and there is still plenty of markets that would do just fine. The $ is too easy and they'll get as much as they can out of the stage investment.
