Will the phonics ever come back to do a full North American tour? I hope so as it's been ages. I know there's issues with not having a label in North America but I really hope they're able to sort it out.

Agreed...I have been asking this very same question every album since LSVO, which they toured waaaay back in 2005!!!! To my knowledge, they have only played a handful of North American shows (pretty much all one-offs) since then. It is probably attributed to the lukewarm reception they have received this side of the Atlantic...I don't blame them for not wasting their time over here. It still doesn't change the fact that I would love to see them at least one more time in my life without having to make the trek across to the UK...

Ya other than the Virgin Festival that they did in 2009 with Oasis and Paul Weller, they've not really been to Toronto since 2005. I know they did the Vancouver Olympics show in 2010. I think that not having a label is a big part of it. There's basically no one to fund a tour. I'm sure if they were able to tour in North America they'd sell out 1000 seat venues, although that's a sad change from selling out arenas in the rest of the world! I think they are by far one of the most underrated bands around.

Weird, I know the announcement here is that the tix are only available thru stereophonics.com, but I just checked ticketmaster and they have them for sale too.

$30 plus $11 service charges - I hate ticketmaster!!!! 33% surcharge - how is this legal!

Not all the US shows are listed, and some of the on-sale dates are Thu, some are Fri, some are Saturday.

Err, it is more expensive to buy from the band site than to wait to buy tix on Sat thru ticketmaster (at least for the LA show at the Honda).

I am going to wait and buy them Saturday. Lot less risk of anything getting lost in the mail with the tix coming from England as well.

I got tickets today for the DC show--$30 each plus a $6 per order fee. The tickets will not be mailed--they need to be picked up at the box office. I don't know how much they will be directly from the 9:30 Club or from Ticketmaster, since neither place has info about any tickets for this show, but at least the tickets won't get lost in the mail.

Congrats PJ - I know how much you and I have wanted them back here! Odd that yours wouldn't be shipped, perhaps different depending on the venue. When I went to order mine for LA the stereophonics shop was adding I think $7 per ticket handling plus $10 shipping. It took forever for my copy of GOTT CD and was afraid it had been lost so I don't want to risk it.

Ticketmaster starts selling tix Sat for the LA show so I will get thru them.

Bought my tickets on the fansite and saved $15 from what Ticketmaster was charging ($10 service fee on a $25 ticket is bullshit!). The tickets for the Detroit show are just Will-Call pickup...super easy. I would be leery if they were shipping over seas as well.

Btw, congrats to all of us who have waited so long to see the band back on this side of the pond!!! Sooooooo pumped for September 27th!!
