    Oh man! No chance that I could attend, but this is excellent news.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    This would mean a new album is forthcoming.

    Agreed. While I like all four VDGG2K releases, Do Not Disturb is the strongest of the lot, to my ears.

    For me the strongest is Grounding in numbers with DND close second.

    Am definitely going to catch a few shows, currently planning on Man to Lon but if they also have an italian tour then plans might change.

    I'll be missing this tour.
    I'm sick and tired of paying top dollar to watch bands at the Bridgewater Hall, where the acoustics are utter rubbish.
    I reckon I've tried every single section over the years, but the Bridgewater Hall is no friend to amplified music.
    I saw VDGG at the Liverpool Philharmonic and Salford Lowry, proper theatres, with good sound.
    I hope others enjoy it, however my days of giving that hall my money are now over.

    Hopefully, Brexit will still not have happened by then so they can tour the continent

    Definitely Trisector >> Banton rules

    Two great epics and not a weak song.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    26 May in Helsinki was also confirmed today, which I'm very happy about because Van der Graaf Generator is the very last band remaining on my bucket list.

    Google has helped too - they've mostly appeared in piecemeal fashion.

    Helsinki and Prague now added to the list above.
