By Karsten S. Andersen
Tickets for the Vienna shows went on sale at 10 o'clock this morning without anyannouncement. The shows haven't even been officially confirmed. The most surprising thingis that the dates of the shows have been changed to the 6th and 7th of May whereaspreviously they were scheduled for the 11th and 12th. This means that the Warsaw dateswill probably also be moved, most likely to the 9th and 10th rather than the 8th and 9th. Orelse Bruce would have to play four shows in four days, which doesn't....

By Karsten S. Andersen
Unlike what we've been writing earlier it really does look like Bruce is going tocarry out his own personal Tour de France in May with no less than six shows taking placein French provincial towns and Paris.

He has gotten quite a reputation inthe States, but is not very well known in Europe. Bruce's appearance.... Read more
