Default Pistoia Blues (Italy) - July 16, 2016

So, they announced this gig in Italy. Looks like it's the only italian gig this summer.
Tix go on sale on Jan 20.

Not sure I like it, anyway. The place looks too big, maybe 6000 people or something.

show: 6000 people; aftershow: 7000 people

think it's a nice place and if we manage to get good seats/first rows it will be ok...

The pick your own seat option didn't work for me so had to go with the 'you pick for me' option. Hate that haha, but turned out ok. Anyone else in?

i´m sure too, but if i get a ticket, i can start getting exciting now! plus, i can start looking for flights (my budget is still an issue for me, so a very last minute thing doesn´t suit me ).

I just booked my flights (to Bologna, 'cause the Ryanair flight hours from Brussels to Pisa are insane)! So I guess I'll see all of you in beautiful Tuscany in July

Well, since we're asking for favours, damien …
I'm still lookin' for accomodation. You have a huge hotel room, right?

edit: Gosh, I shouldn't have posted that! I totally meant can I crash on your couch?
it's just that I'm in a silly mood today.

Yeah, flights aren't cheap. I guess it's due to the high season.
I don't think it's going to get better if you wait.
