If so would have to be between May 5 - June 3, otherwise looks pretty booked up and then off to Europe.

I'd like this to be all, can't really think of the options with the spectre of more shows popping up.

It doesn't seem like there are enough breaks in the tour yet...but I'm just thinking about potential fatigue -- Also, getting everything from Lucca to Mannheim in 24 hours - seems a bit rushed. Plus that Mannheim booking seems a bit out of place on the map.....They seem to be backtracking south to north than back south.... (That is what happend last time before they rearranged.)

Wichita, KS????? Lived in the city for 9 years praying they would go there. No! Move away and they go there. Haven't been back there in 4 years...Yup! Considering a road trip (depending on the seats I can pull up!).

P.S. Any one having issues on the tompetty.com site. Can log in but that is it. Can't see the message board. Could be the computer I am using.

I'm happy they are touring...and they are going to in U.S. cities with direct flights for me (sorry for being selfish). This is an exciting day....and eventhough I won't get to as many shows as last 2010, I am excited to see their beautiful faces, their grins...and to hear some of my favorite music...Let's hope for more deep tracks, more guitar solos....more time for Benmont to shine on those keys....Yes, Yes, Yes...This is so great!

Worst North American tour locations ever.

Really interesting locations, huh? You know there will be more US dates.

I am very happy for the European fans though - they have been waiting a long time for this!
