Scotland was also left out of the tour.

Very frustrating if they don't announce something for Ireland - especially seeing as the UK "tour" was so small as well. Bad form!

It's possible, but as it currently stands, it's unlikely. they currently have no gigs between June 30th and October 5th, so I can' t see them breaking a 14 week break in touring, just to do a relatively small(in the European festival sense)festival. of course if there are another slew of gigs announced around Ep time, that would make more sense.

Why?

Ireland is a small market.

Especially if the promoters dont play ball with their ticket policy.

That's interesting, has there. been reports that Mcd(who have promoted them here for a good while)had a problem with the ticket policy ? I seriously doubt that this is the reason they are not playing Ireland or Scotland for that matter. there is still time for a gig/s to be announced here, the most obvious dates are late
September to the first few days in October, so it could still happen

No i havent heard anything about it just speculation on my behalf. MCD are a shower of cnuts and it wouldnt surprise me if they played hard ball with the band on the way they are selling tickets for this tour which i think is brilliant btw.But i think it has to cut into promoters profits when the band sell the tickets themselves.

I heard they make you solve a quadratic equation to get the code to get clues on how to get tickets for their shows??

They are ticketless gigs for the most part, the credit card holder must be there on the night with the confirmation of purchase, they are non transferable,,credit card holder not there, no one gets in, no physical tickets are issued for online sales, however personal callers to ticket centres do get actual tickets! but this would be a small minority of overall sales. Not sure what you mean Delzer, the majority of tickets are sold on standard online websites, ticketmaster etc, so the band do not sell all the tickets, although a small percentage are sold through the bans website. Its true there would be some additional costs on venue entrance, as the access would take much longer than the normal ticket scan setup.The lack of Dublin gigs and mcd, does not explain how Scotland has also been left out of the tour also. Dublin and Glasgow have been on every tour for years now.
