No US Tour in 2018
« on: Nov 13, 2017, 11:56 AM »
just seeing fairly reliable outlets posting updates that the band has confirmed no US touring in 2018 - hoping I have an excuse to get over to Europe next year....

been some murmurs from "people who know a guy who knows a girl"-type stuff on the Facebook pages. Hopefully this all just part of "proper band maintenance" and that they are able to get in the studio time they'd like to make an epic album.

time to start saving for OBH5 in 2020 for my 40th blowout...

Wow... this caught me off guard.
The anticipation for NYE builds and very curious about their plans for 2019.
This sounds like a new Jim solo album in 2019, outside of Tribute To 2.

I'm taking this news as "no 2018 dates other than OBH", not "2018 Euro tour". The wording was probably used to 1) sell some more tickets to Denver and 2) ensure people that OBH ain't in danger.

This is actually kinda good news in my mind. They'll have a whole year to work on other projects and most importantly, record and mix that new album. 2019 tour could be huge.

I'm reading this very carefully - it says no US tour in 2018 (not 2019), so they may hit select fests or tour in Europe next year. 

Even if this is a full year break, then I agree that they should have time to get to that elusive Album and go back on the road hard in 2019 (with OBH5 in early '19 - I'm assuming 3 year contract as will HRHRM)

All good, but this harkens back to the 2013 "starve" - the Americanarama 10 song sets were brutally short - it's gonna be rough going 9-12 months with no live Jacket

honestly this is much better than what i was hearing from some folks directly in the know.  chatter around the ville was more of an "extended break/possible break-up" after OBH.

That is some depressing chatter.  So yeah, this is clearly better than that.

I was not expecting this type of announcement at all.  The way I read this is that there will be a US tour in 2019, and other continents are not ruled out for 2018.

I too would love an excuse to get to Europe..... there are already strong rumors of Pearl Jam in Europe June/July, and if MMJ happens to be there, then I'll be looking for both bands and you too millerjustin.

Just glad to have the 3 NYE shows and OBH4 nailed down. It's going to be a long dry spell to see them as MMJ after that.

Don't want to gossip but I would be shocked at a possible hiatus/breakup!!!  I mean, this is one.of the most incestuous bands in the business. And I really mean that in the best possible context. They all seem really engaged in the band and participaing in each other's various side projects.

DONT YOU EVER TURN IT OFF!!!

Does this mean we'll get another large Jim tour in 2018? Could we possibly see some new Monsters of Folk????? I would LOVE another album from that group
