Default Any talk of upcoming tour dates?

What's up with the full absence of ANY upcoming shows? Seems to me that every other active band is cl******g to book venues and dates in the kinda-post-covid world that we are living in now. Lots of bands have gobs booked throughout 2022.

But nothing at all on the SP page.

Has anybody heard talk from him somewhere about tour dates that I've missed?

Or do we think they're just waiting to tour on this new double album so we can hear full three hour shows of it plus an encore of the greatest hits from SAOSBV1:LPNPNFNS and SAOSBV2:CYR?

Haven't heard anything. Most likely stuff is in the works to coincide with the sequel album. My guess is Billy will want to push for another arena tour as a celebration of MCIS.

We are so not post-Covid. But I'll stop there.

If you’re vaccinated (and boosted) then yes, it’s post-COVID.

Yeah, you're right - wish it was that simple to say we're almost post-covid, but we're not. I work in a nursing home, so yeah - I get it.

Probably just my eternal inner optimist trying to come out there.

We are absolutely not post-COVID.

If you're vaccinated and boosted then as an individual you have helped to suppress the spread of the virus and drastically reduce your chances of becoming seriously ill for a limited time. You can still transmit it, lots of people are not vaccinated, in developing countries especially. COVID is still mutating and will continue to circulate like flu. The impact on global infrastructure is ongoing.

But anyway...

Am I crazy or did you say this after the vaccinations the first time around?

IMO we are not post-COVID, but we are definitely in a different phase of it where it is starting to become endemic instead of a pandemic. Six-month boosters going to be popular for a while is my guess, and as an immunocompromised person, I'm still going to wear masks in public. But I have no problem doing indoor activities maskless with people I know, which was definitely not the case last year at this time.

yeah no, we're in lockdown again though, with 85% of the population fully vaccinated. Highest contamination numbers since the start of it all, too

Cool

Highest transmission levels ever in my neck of the woods, too. I love that people are just sick of the pandemic being a thing and have decided that means it's over. I, personally, am vaccinated, so I now believe it does not affect me as an individual; therefore the planet is post-COVID and everyone should start acting normal. This "I only care if it directly affects me" thinking is definitely smart and cool and has in no way led straight to the hellworld we've been living in for years.



Slightly above the level of daily deaths we had for most of last year, before the vaccine? Party time, baby!

IMHO 2022 is saturated with bands that had to put off cancelled tours. it's just TOO MUCH. there's bands that I'd love to go see but won't - simply because there's TOO much going on.

maybe SP knows about this and is going to wait for a better moment?

I had a Web guy for a while, not a very creative person, who ultimately got fired. At one point he wanted a raise, and I said to him, “You haven’t grown the Web site. When I write a song that becomes a hit song, I sell more tickets and more records. It’s a results-oriented business. So if 10,000 people visit the site every day and 6 months later there’s only 9,000 people visiting the site, that’s a real thing. I can’t guess what they’re thinking, I can just see the numbers.” He said, “Well, if you would visit the site more often or post something, then our numbers would go way up.” I replied, “Yeah, but there’s a reason they don’t put somebody on TV 24 hours a day. It’s the Scarcity Principle.”

Sigh. How I miss those days of our monthly sales tracking of those boxes which as of now, are not for sale anywhere on their site. And now that they aren't for sale on there anywhere anymore, you can't help but wonder where those remaining units are housed.

This is a verrrrry interesting point. Hadn't considered that.

Not sure that he has stated it outright, which generally means they are of the "I don't think we should have to share that sort of thing" camp which means every damn time they are of the "no way i'm putting that in me" camp.

Very true. Also there's stuff like this from 2009. LMFAO Willy.
