I met the promoter in Burbank and he said that even though interest was piqued, not enough response from radio stations resulted in a fire sale of tickets for this particular show - resulting in an attendance of over 4,000 ppl at the Starlight Bowl!

The shame of it was when 40-50% emptied out of the venue and headed home after "Forever Young"; it seems that it was the only song everyone stayed to hear (and FY was pretty much the middle of the set list).

So, I really should check this site more often. I didn't find out about the U.S. tour until a couple of days after the New York and Chicago shows. I live near Toronto, Canada, and easily could have driven to either location.

There ain't no band in this universe I'd spend one or the other amount like that for. Not even if John and George would resurrect...
