Sparkle And Fade Tour!!!

Just saw, yesterday, that Everclear is touring the US for the Sparkle & Fade anniversary starting in October! I'll be getting my tickets to the NYC show at BB King's! Was gonna finagle an Amtrak ride down to Baltimore, as that was the closest show to me in the original list of dates. But, then I saw that they're playing NYC! Anyone else going and want to meet up? BB King's is a nice venue. Food/drink are a little pricey, but nice venue, definitely. I'm also curious if anyone will be opening for them.

Personally, I'm looking forward to all of the songs after Heartspark Dollarsign. I feel like they've all been underplayed since the album came out, but especially as of late. I don't think I've ever heard "Queen of the Air" live, in-person. Maybe on a bootleg.

Anyway, looking forward to it.

Yeah. No Texas dates! It seems like they've really been good about getting here often, especially for Summerland this year. So it's not like they never come, but man, this would be the one to go to! I don't think I'd be able to travel to any of the other shows either. But at least I'm hoping we'll get some recordings this time!! Somebody's gonna tape this or YouTube it, right?

Alex, I'm in the same boat as you. We may have to plan a crazy road trip as a last ditch effort.

So glad they are doing this and doing a pretty decent amount of shows too. I was saying I would try to make it anywhere if they did this show in the U.S. this fall. I should be making it to either Cincy or Indy, or both. I hope it is like the Austrailian shows in that they play the album, then even more after. It's been a while since we got a 2+ hour EC show. Gonna be awesome.

I wonder if Stacy will be on drums or if there is any word on a new member (or old?!?) joining up. If it is Stacy, wouldn't mind seeing American Hi Fi open up.

I'll be at the Portland date, rain or shine! So at the OZ shows they played the album in it's entirety and then other stuff also, correct?

To my knowledge, yes. S&F front to back, then mainly hits and a few others after

Still hoping for a few shows in the UK. I think Art mentioned an offer on twitter a few months ago.
And yeah, this time please record the thing. Having no video whatsoever from the Australian Tour was hard to swallow.

Looks like the UK promoters couldn't make it work financially, bummer for the UK fans this year, hopefully next year.

I have my tickets for Chicago...am praying they play the whole album in its entirety. It just wouldn't make sense not to and would be such a disappointment to the hardcore fans. Fingers crossed!!!
