November/December Australia Tour (inc Perth)


Recommended Posts

Month earlier, all here said that European market is oversaturated, nothing happen next year Blah Blah Blah :D

I still feel nothing will happen next year, in Europe.
Good for you Australia and fingers crossed New Zealand...

I wouldn't be surprised if Bruce has been stung by criticism of his lack of US shows and is aiming to remedy that early next year or later this year. I also get the impression the Oz shows were a done deal and maybe a short US leg is in the offing after the US fans response?!

However, I'm hoping for a 2015 tour from a coffers point of view, but would adapt if they're back next year... and besides Casino Nancy is usually right.

I agree with the US announcement and I would think that may come out in Oct to coincide with new album news if he is doing some sheds between March/April. Sadly I don't think he will be back in the 'Diff next year but I would love to be wrong about that

Come on......show a little faith!!! What did you tell me yesterday, you love an optimist!!!, join the ranks ha! - if he comes back to Europe in the fall (like I'm holding out for ha!) then OF COURSE he will be back in Cardiff!!!........I do not foresee any future UK touring that does not include Cardiff from this point on, simple, so the only way he won't be back in Cardiff is if he isn't over here in 2014(which I know is your point but I'm turning a deaf ear to that notion as you know! ha!)

Remember, "we'll be seein' ya!" ........all that is to be questioned is WHEN???

Cardiff looked amazing, he looked like he had a ball.I would say he would return after such a fantastic concert.He should drop hard Rock calling and make room for more Cardiff shows!

5 shows in Ireland this year, I wonder wiill we get maybe two next year(Dublin/Belfast)?Spain got one this year for instance so he might focus on doing more concerts there maybe?I dont think he could only do one in Ireland.

It does but I think they are wrong. The Aussie leak yesterday doesn't have a Wrecking Ball banner. If this was still a WB tour he wouldn't have cancelled all the holds on US and Canadian sheds for the autumn. He would be playing them. This is a new tour they just don't have a new album title to hang it on as yet.

If there is a Europe Tour in the summer, How many UK shows will Bruce do?

Less than this time and same with Ireland. I think we will see Barcelona and Madrid come back into play and probably a couple more Spanish gigs.

I think there might be no Spanish shows. Apparently it's off the map for major tours because of the economic problems there. Bon Jovi said he was told not to play there as there was no market for big gigs (and to his credit, did so anyway and made the shows free).

Was off the map this year but next year I think there will be shows. Lots of other acts toured there this year it was just very very difficult.

You think?I was thinking Ireland and England got very lucky this year and Italy as well really so as you said, probably Spains time next year!

They got lucky after the Spanish promoter said they could only do one gig rather than the 5/6 they had planned. The tour needed to do the same amount of gigs to make the money they budgeted so they scrabbled around sticking in dates anywhere they could. The UK and Ireland benefited from that the most.

I agree. I think the UK/Ireland got more shows really than it could handle. Hard Rock Calling/Coventry weren't sold out I don't think.

Interesting.We cant really complain if we only get 1 or 2 next year, we were spoiled this year!

I think Coventry was sold out. Hard Rock was different as most fans were sulking and refusing to buy tickets. I wouldn't bother either next time.

We might get them in stages again. So London is usually a cert and then one up North probably Manchester again. If sales go well then a possibility for another to be added later on or a festival.

I think all the shows were sold out in Ireland?I think the demand was there.Obviously many fans travelled from around the world and many went to more than 1 concert but Bruce did very well in Ireland.Not many could sell out five concerts in such a small country.I would just doubt it ever happening again.I think another counrty will get lucky next year, probably Spain.

I am thinking 3 shows for UK and same for Ireland. I think NZ papers got it wrong, I do not think this will be a continuation of the Wrecking Ball Tour.

Agree journos are adding on old quotes or linking to Wrecking Ball tour which is their mistake. I said earlier if this WB he could not have cancelled the holds on US sheds.
