This is just a post to see if it possibly catches Steve's eye and hopefully gets him to come to the city of Glasgow in Scotland on his upcoming european tour! He will be sorely missed it's been over 5 years since Glasgow last had a taste of Steve & his music !

I think what's done is done. It takes like months for venues to approve and set costs and whatnot. If its not there and all the dates are released, it pro a lywont be happening. Sorry

and I don't think Steve ever comes on the forum... ever. His last post was in 2009. Since then, its just been Andy, who is always busy. Adminastrators, anyone, tell Steve to get his Zappa- spanked asst on this forum :)

Well I could appeal Andy Alt for any info/update on Scottish dates, but I might as well drink hot oil.

Looks like a drive to Manchester is on the cards. :(

"kyle am i" you are awful pessimistic ! If anyone remembers a few years ago on the '07 tour, there were no Glasgow/Scottish dates and a few of us created a similar post to this, and sure enough it was recognised and a little tartan VAI symbol was posted on news feed and a Glasgow date was added ! If anyone is Scottish and reading this, please reply in this thread and a bigger chance we have of Andy or Steve noticing this. :lol:

and this was because of your posts? Ok, whatever. But dave weiner posted a video on how gigging works, and it seems highly unlikley that something like you guys want could happen when theres so much involved. pessemistic, maybe a little, but realistic. good luck and congrats if it does happen! the more fans satasfied on this tour the better!

It be great if Steve could come to Scotland but as it stands at the moment it looks as if I'll be going to Newcastle, when I get a ticket. PLEEEEEASE come to Scotland Steve!! If it's a case of no room at the inn, then you can come stay at mine. :lol:

Where's the "Digital Marketing" genius to help us? Any mods able to shed light on this potential disaster?

As you all know Steve would love to play everywhere, but sometimes it's not up to him. It's all based on numbers and routing :(
Hopefully some of you from Scotland can come see Steve at another venue somewhere close. I don't think Steve will give up the guitar anytime soon, so I'm sure he'll make a appearance in Scotland soon! :D

Sorry, but I'm sure others will agree, just a bit miffed that certain venues in the UK are getting preference when he's never played there before , over Scotland where he's performed at least 6 times I can think of! :headbang

Appreciate you taking the time to let us know. Many thanks.

As you all know, this wouldn't have happened if we were independent. :wink:

Och was worth a try, I still have faith a date can be made to come see us Scots! Steve has been here many times and even recorded here "The Black Forest" was recorded at Glasgow Barrowlands, would be a shame to miss him on this tour for another 5 years :( and not get to use my EVO ticket
