Surely that is pretty much guaranteed after the success of the last tour?
If they know they can sell tickets then they will come... fingers crossed!

There are 2 more shows posted to Mr. Big's newly-revamped official website.

One was a rumor for a bit... This is the mighty GODS OF METAL fest in Milan, Italy, on June 8. Judas Priest will be headlining as part of their farewell tour, and Mr. Big is co-headlining. Cradle of Filth and Whitesnake are reported to be playing. The lineup is shaping up to be really cool!

*** Important errata:
The date is reported as June 22 elsewhere.
SRC 1: http://www.billboard.com/events/judas-p ... 3950.story
SRC 2: http://www.livenation.it/event/23032/go ... 11-tickets
SRC 3: http://www.songkick.com/festivals/8341- ... 1/schedule
Official fest site: http://www.godsofmetal.it/

Not sure what to make of that June 8/June 22 reportage issue... and will not guess. email the band for more info!

So if you are planning on going, buy tickets from an official source - LiveNation in Italy is linked above - so you are assured you get tickets for the correct day and show.

The other is a surprise to me. A show in Taipei, May 3.

Impromptu Racer X reunion? You just need to get a few more members there.

Heh, here's another date for you guys! If they are in Sweden around that date it seems unlikely that they would go to Italy the next day or so... But who knows!

Jun 8-11 (One of the days) - Sweden Rock Festival - Sölvesborg, Sweden

@Siggelump : Is that date on the Mr. Big official page?

For the Japan tour, they are doing VIP meet & greets. The ticket price is 27,500 Yen each, or $332-ish USD. I'm used to thinking of $300 tickets meaning guitar lessons... for this ticket price, you get:

* One premium reserved seat located very close to the stage (if concert is general admission, package will include GA ticket)
* Exclusive Meet & Greet with the members of Mr. Big
* Personal Photograph with the band
* Official Meet & Greet Laminate
* Collectible Tour Poster (limited, numbered)
* Exclusive Rock Towel
* Set of Official Guitar Picks

VIP tickets for any of the Japan shows can be purchased from here:

It's not there yet, but a band doesn't land on Sweden Rock's site unless it's official. Judas Priest are there as well, so I guess they are following them for quite a while.

:evil: Not impressed. They better announce another non festival gig, cause they are the only band in that line up I'm bothered about seeing.

I would be pretty annoyed if I had to go to Download just to see Mr. Big... Fingers crossed for at least one more UK date.
Actually, it would probably cost the same to go to Paris or somewhere to see a gig as it would for a weekend ticket to Download (plus food, travel etc). That may be my backup plan!

Exactly. No way I'm going to Download. I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed for a London gig.
