I'll bet he continues the Backwards So Tour in South America/Mexico and Europe. He seems quite energized by his recent tours.
New Blood was fun, but sometimes it's fun to hear the songs as you expect them too.
I'm hoping this is all a prelude to an album of new works finally being released.
Turns out the saddle is not broken, though I still have never had a saddle that flexed that much, the saddler assured me it was fine. It does need to be reflocked (the stuffing in the saddle panels needs to be replaced), but that's not to be unexpected at the price I bought it at.

Hi Lunies!!! ~ Hope all is well.
I have not been around .. but with the news of Pete's tour ~ I hope to get right back in the saddle.
It'll take a while to read posts to catch up, but I am trying. I read a little at a time & slowly but surely I will get there.
Speaking of saddles; glad to read your saddle is not broken, Zen.
New Blood was a success, but it was time to put that on the shelf. I imagine even Peter knows you should not wear a good thing out.
I am really excited that he made plans for another tour so quickly after the last one.
I realize it needed to coinside with the anniversary of SO ~ but it's still a wonderful surprise that he's is coming back this soon.
I am giving rain away today ~ we are expecting 4 more days of rain & my flowers/veggies are starting to rot.
Have a Pleasant Weekend ~ Happy Memorial Day.

Hello Moonstorm, Zenrider et al...
Speaking about Saddles: Zenrider I admire you for having horses to take under your saddles. I hope everything is okay with the one you had problems with.
Moonstorm, I too am excited the maestro will be back on tour again so soon. I now feel it’s a good sign for his career: he still is hungry; I think the stages still are calling for him AND of course the fans! I am optimistic since I heard there will be new songs, hey great!!
And I suppose his tour calendar will be adding some dates in Europe...
Today it is Whit Monday (I think that's its name in the UK) in Germany, it is a public holiday. The weather here is lovely, sun is having a date with us sun hungry people. But the ground is pretty dry again; I have to water my tomato plants every evening. My columbines have finished flowering and the peonies are starting. I love that, but the battle against snacks is awful
Here is Mister Gabriel live in Berlin - Flume

Ellee, I don't know Ellee, sometimes I think I should have taken up bowling. Or maybe something else safer, like base jumping, hang gliding, parachuting.... As for Guy, only time will tell, silly pony. He certainly is a lesson in patience. It's been dry here too, yet they keep predicting rain. If it doesn't rain today I'll have to water my flowers.
Thanks Moon, I'm relieved too, though the reflocking is not cheap. I might have been able to take it to another place for a bit less, but by the time I spent the money of fuel, likely not much of a savings.
Anyway, Shocky's for those who want them and some frozen Margaritas for those needing to cool off a bit.

So glad that Peter is doing a tour soon! I'm sure he won't come here, but I am happy for all of you. If He does come here, though, I wil be elated!
Things have been busy here. The end of school is drawing near so there are all kinds of end of year field trips, concerts, programs and awards ceremonies going on. It's been fairly constant for awhile, but fun.
I finally started planting things in my garden. If you don't wait past a certain time on some things they'll freeze on a cold night or just sit there and do nothing. Things are stating to pop up that I have planted from seed.
Mr. Big threw pumpkin out in the garden area last fall. I moved as much as I could this spring and prepped the soil. It rained and a carpet of pumpkin plants popped up practically over night. Amazing. I moved some of them to where I wanted our pumpkin patch, and gave some away.
Well, back to the fun!
Sorry Biggie, If I could afford to get you here to Colorado . . . .
Never know though stranger things have happened

Red Rocks wasn't in the budget for me, so I'm staying local myself. That way I could splurge on the Hot Sound package at least. Hope to see others there. The hospitality between sound check and show was very nice at the United Center.

Oops, Jen, that Red Rocks answer should have gone here. Oh, well, I'm sure you'll see it. (In the "Rich" thread).
Went on the zoo field-trip with my 7 year old and my grandson today. Alot of fun and a beautiful day!

I just watched the steam video from secret life (via you tube unblocker because you can't watch it the normal way here in Germany). So sexy – isn’t it (the video)? (Or should I say isn't HE? )
Have a nice weekend everybody

Hi Jen, hi Moonie, hi Darcy, hi everybody!
All you people aren't excited about the tour or anything, are you? I couldn't tell. (Hehehe, there's only a billion posts!)
Went to the dentist today.What a thrill.
Had a couple of cavities along the gumline, and they had to put that rubber contraption thing in my mouth. Part of my lip was sticking through it and somehow my dentist managed to drill my lip. There is a hole in my lip. Weird. Thank god stuff in your mouth heals up fast.
My garden is growing! Yay!
Not much exciting happening here-- yet.
But just you wait--
