Sorry my friend, but anybody who digs Gabriel (and I admit that I won't ever actually own anything by him) should check these guys out - I wouldn't be at all surprised if he's listening to them on the bus!

Too bad you missed them in Merrie Olde... ;^)
Sorry, man - it looks like either I killed this thing, or no one's into Pete...
I'm a serious PG fan who has seen most of his tours, including two of his famous Roxy shows in LA. I really like UP a lot but felt this tour left a lot to be desired. The staging was monumental and obviously very expensive to build and to schlep around from town-to-town, but it did nothing to support the very intimate music he was playing. Better to have a much smaller production that wouldn't require such large venues to support it.
So this upcoming tour is a positive move, since it's at small non-in-the-round venues.
Thanks Dan for gettin' me off the hook!
but are the prices going to be high like the winter 02 tour?
