I guess you don't have more info, but please keep us posted about tickets if there's any info available anytime soon. I've never seen Missy and would love to see her live.

Since when was Seal dance-pop? You ever try dancing to "Kiss From A Rose"? Yeah, didn't think so.

I think Seal's new album is more dance-oriented. At least the first single was ("Amazing").

'Kiss From a Rose' is supposedly about coke, so I'm sure there's someone out there dancing to it.

Don't get excited about Missy live. Much as I love her music she's one of the worst live acts it's been my misfortune to see here in Sydney.

Before a hyped up sell out crowd of 12,000 we got about 45 minutes of fluff and and an awful lot of dancing from her troupe but sadly hardly any music from Missy. I don't recall her managing to get through a single song, she did an awful lot of yo's and exhortations to party but the entire show was a travesty.

I recently saw de La Soul at a smaller venue do much the same thing and have concluded that hip hop acts just don't cut the mustard as live performers. Too much bullshit, not enough substance.

Missy and Busta weren't so bad...Missy had an high energy show with a lot of back up dancers and Busta was funny and engaging.

I wasn't expecting Prince you know so I wasn't disappointed.
