UK Tour?

Do people think the UK tour will actually go ahead? I'd assumed it would be cancelled in light of the allegations but I've heard nothing.

I would say it hinges on the results of the fbi investigation. If he’s cleared, I say he tours, solo. If he’s charged, I’d say the tour is cancelled. I think they are banking on the results coming back in a timely fashion and most likely that they will favour him. They’ll probably take the tour decision right down to the wire. Who knows who will go see him even if he is cleared by the fbi.

I would also think that if he’s cleared, he’ll re set the release of Big Colors. Not with the same label, but somebody else will want to be involved or it will come out independently.

I think he needs to get help, so I hope he does what’s best for his own personal wellbeing. I also hope he makes appropriate apologies and takes measures to acknowledge and correct his shitty behaviour and moves forward considering the wellbeing of anyone who gets involved with him.

I think he’d be a fool to go on tour. That’s my take.

Re: UK Tour?

Someone else said that it might be an insurance issue. So it will not be that easy for him to cancel the tour just because of bad press because most likely that case is not insured. So it might be a huge financial impact for him. to cancel the tour. So maybe he will wait what time will bring. And also he might cancel it shorthand and states he is sick. But no way you can cancel now and say you will be sick in april.

And maybe he just doesn't give a f*** and will play like others did before.

Re: UK Tour?

Tend to agree Delvis. Regardless of the result of the FBI investigation, there's no smoke without fire, and I'm therefore not keen to go see him. I have tickets for 3 shows though but doubt I will be able to get a refund unless it's cancelled or he is charged by the FBI.

Yeah was reading it on reddit before. There was a funny comment below:

Who are these fucking "campaigners"?

If the tour does go ahead it will be a car crash. The opening show in Dublin could be half empty. He will likely face hecklers and outright hostility at some venues.

This 100%.Regardless of outcome of FBI investigation this would be a terrible mistake and a bad thing for Ryanís mental health.
He needs to go away and do that 5 year plan someone outlined on one of the locked threads.

Re: UK Tour?

I would deeply like to attend this show, more out of morbid curiosity than anything.

I don't understand how he (or anyone around him) expects that he'll be able to hold it together under these conditions. Summer of '69 heckles emotionally derailed this person for like three years. How much worse is this going to be? 10,000x? 1,000,000?

Well, if it does go ahead there could be cheap tickets outside venues...

he'll probably plow through some standard setlist? those summer of 69 incidents were mostly due to his arrogance and tendency to make a deal out of everything anybody yelled. it's not like he bursted out crying or something. I can see him do a 10 or 12 song setlist without any talking or interruptions. same as the last euro tour basically
a solo acoustic tour is another story though

Re: UK Tour?

Iím going to the Birmingham show, my friend up there hasnít even texted me about the story let alone suggested we donít go. For the RAH show my GF has seen the headlines but doesnít mind going. The sad thing is he might not have a band to play with.

Re: UK Tour?

Interesting thing is....if its solo (which seems to be what people are saying it would be if it goes ahead) then likely to be accoustic??....which is a fundamental change to what people booked? Also, will he have support?....again, if not a fundamental change. Which kind of undermines the position of "no refunds" that the promotor/venue is currently holding. Surely if it moves to accoustic and there isnt a support act (cant remember if its billed as "plus special guest(s)") people are within right to ask for refund.......

...point being, maybe the delay in any announcement is down to negotiation with replacement band/acts?

Pretty sure there was no support act billed as the shows were supposed to be much longer. As for the band (or lack thereof), I don't believe it'll make much of a difference as I don't remember any band being explicitly advertised with the tour.

I have 4 tickets (London, Newcastle, Glasgow, Cambridge) including 1 RPLE. And I'll go there anyway - even if it be a capella shows without lights and plug.

Re: UK Tour?

i cant imagine what these shows are going to be like if they go on. Do you imagine there will be no engagement with the crowd. Just head down and playing songs?
