Are you crazy? Would much rather see them at a reasonably-sized venue like Bowery or MHoW. Anyway, awesome!

I'm excited for this but this summer will be awaiting for Tom Waits in NYC! I wonder what kind of venue he will be playing at....any guesses? Imagine Tom Waits playing for 2hrs plus at Bowery Ballroom....I would pay at least $100

Greenwood,
keep dreaming. That aint gonna happen. Expect Beacon Theater again or if god forbid Bowery Presents gets their hands on this then Interminable 5.
It will probably though be at Beacon, United Palace, Wamu or Radio City depending on which promoter gets it.

they should have just played with the breeders the night after and it would be 1994 all over again

Saw 'em back in the day when they played w/ Hum. Swervedriver was a great opener.

"Swervedriver was a great opener" ! - How ridiculous.. that tour was a massive mismatch and they had to switch around the order at the end so that Hum was before Swervedriver because people were going home after the Swervies!

This is going to be sick. I too saw them with Hum in Boston. At the time I was more into Hum than them, but have become a huge fan since, so getting to see them again after 10 years is totally amazing! For sure at both shows. Totally can't wait! Thank you Adam!
