Default eels on tour with strings :)

i already made an eels thread i believe, but serched and searched and couldn't find, so here's a new one with a newsletter announcing some tour dates this summer:

Having heard inside talk about Mr. E having "had it with the road," we here at the EELStheband.com offices were not holding out much hope for a 2005 EELS tour. Mr. E has surprised us all with the following announcement:

EELS with strings:
Thursday: From the steps of the Universal Music World Headquarters in Santa Monica, California, EELS leader Mark Oliver Everett, aka E, announces 2005 tour:

"The past few EELS tours had taken a physical and emotional toll on me. I decided it was time to stop. But then one night I was in the backyard smoking a
cigar with Bobby, Jr. and I was thinking about how we've been pummeling the audiences with variations on a distorted, rocking theme for the past few tours and wouldn't it be nice to do something really different? I found myself getting creatively excited about the idea. I couldn't stop myself from calling the office and having my team of experts assist me in making this idea a reality. So here we come again. If you're looking for rock -- turn back. You've come to the wrong place. This is a whole other thing."

EELS with strings is sure to be a very special evening. Warning: Some incorrect dates may have been prematurely announced elsewhere. If it isn't on the
EELStheband.com official tour dates page, it isn't official yet. See confirmed tour dates and order tickets for some of the shows at the tour dates page:www.eelstheband.com/tourdates/index.asp

More dates may be announced shortly, stay tuned.
Here are some confirmed dates, so far:

May 18, 2005 Dublin, Ireland, Vicar Street
May 19, 2005 Birmingham, UK, Butterworth Hall/ Warwick Arts Centre
May 20, 2005 Manchester, UK, Bridgewater Hall
May 23, 2005 London, UK, Royal Festival Hall
May 26, 2005 Koln, Germany, Live Music Hall
May 27, 2005 Brussels, Belgium, Cirque Royale
May 28, 2005 Groningen, Holland, De Oosterpoort
June 1, 2005 Munich, Germany, Tonhalle
June 2, 2005 Zurich, Switzerland, Volkshaus
June 4, 2005 Berlin, Germany, Postbanhof
June 5, 2005 Hamburg, Germany, Kleine Musikhalle



argh, no danish dates (yet). will try to bug the roskilde festival bookers with requests, but otherwise i might just have to visit germany or dublin or holland or summin anybody feel like going with me?
