    It would great to see them again, ( after all this time!) it would be more like a reunion tour.

    I would drive 1000 miles for this… except to Camden. What were they smoking? I wouldn’t go to Camden even if Wakeman were with them.

    I just saw them a couple months ago. You can’t ask for a better show. Meet and greets were sold out, so , if you are a fan as I am , I suggest you get your tickets early. If you can this is a must see show.
