    ....and no Canada. Again.
    That's a pretty big opening between 6/15 to 9/19. Over three months worth of available dates. I but you they'll put a couple Canada dates in there along with a Boston, MA.
    I'm in Saskatchewan and would gladly fly/drive/walk/crawl to either end of this country to see them.
    Why they aren't coming to Seattle is beyond me, but when they do, I'm getting those tickets right away.
    Another show at the Moore would be, in the original meaning of the word, awesome.
    I'm ecstatic that I'm not the only one who thought this. I Ctrl+F-ed "WA" with no results (aside from ioWA, among others) and I am disappointed.
    I need to know if Jerry's hair was long or short when the album was recorded. Though you'll probably be able to hear it in the mix.
    What does hair length have to do with anything?
    Nothing if your name is Scott Ian, Kerry King, John Bush, Devin Townsend was more to do with we've always known Jerry with metal hair, not looking like he's about to go apply for a job somewhere. You are right though, long hair doesn't make you any more metal than a guy with short hair (these days anyway), like a mohawk doesn't make you an instant punk god.
    They go from touring with Mastodon and the Deftones to Halestorm and Bullet for my Valentine? No Thanks. Still looking forward to the album.
    the biggest thing i take away from this is that Jerry cut his hair. he looks like a ****in shoe salesman now...
    Relax everybody, this is the pre-album release tour dates. I'm positive they'll have a full fledged "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" US tour sometime after May 28th, hitting all the major cities and what not.
    Wasn't it Jerry that did the MTV unplugged thing back in the 90's with "Friends don't let friends get haircuts" written on he's guitar in response to when Metallica went all pretty boy too.
    It was actually Mike Inez's bass that had that written (it said "Friends don't let friends get friends haircuts"...if that makes any f-ing sense at all, should have left out the last "friends"), but regardless it's still a good point. "Hello pot, meet kettle"...but I suppose AIC (or anyone that's NOT Metallica in general) gets a free pass because they're just tooooo coool *rolls eyes*
    I might be wrong but I thought the last "Friends" was in regards to the TV show, Friends.
    Well to be fair, he had long hair for 25 years, ar some points you just want some change
    Why is Phil Anselmo the picture for a cover story of AIC going on tour? I swear...I'd like to give these writers on UG a "Hello! Hello! IS ANYBODY HOME? THINK MCFLY...THINK!"
    A month long US tour? umm, I'd add in the word "East" to that. I'm seein' no west coast love on this month long US tour >.>
    Will be seeing them at Rock on the Range. Looking forward to the new material.
