I live in Columbus Ohio. I'm easily good for a 200 mile radius. That would include Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Detroit, and Pittsburgh. I like my chances but if none of those cities are on the tour I guess I'm not above flying out to the west coast and making a vacation out if it.

But if they come to Columbus I will definitely finally get the Stray Cats logo tattooed to my arm.

I travel so far it needs to travel.....If that means I have to travel to other countries..so be it.
Your fan or not! Last time saw them in 4 countries, spend my vacation( and vacation money!!) to follow them around Europe

I was under the impression the tour would take place in Europe only...
Didn't I read that on Slim Jim's site?

It's kinda funny. Jim has "Euro Tour '08" on his site, and makes mention that he'll play with Brian and Lee anytime, anywhere. Lee has posted that it's a "Farewell to Europe" tour, and Brian has indicated that it's a
"Farewell Tour," beginning in Spain. It all seems very open-ended to me. But for the moment, it appears everyone's energies are focused on putting together dates for a European tour only. I'm sure that's more than enough work for all parties involved.

I hope they don't wait too long before announcing plans for the rest of the world, but I suppose it could stretch out over several years. If that's the case, the bad news would be, the non-Euro Cats fans would have to wait. The upside would be that fans who wish to save and travel a bit might have time to spread out their expenses and catch multiple "farewell" tours.

I'll fly somewhere here in the States if I have to. If they are playing within 500-600 miles, I'll drive. But I can't afford to fly to Europe if it's going to be a Europe only tour. If I have to fly to a US date, I'd prefer Los Angeles or New York. I think a tour ending blowout back on Long Island would be appropriate and amazing.

In 2004, I saw them twice (France & Belgium). It was the least I could do! I'm waiting for the tour dates and hope they'll play in France again. Anyway I'll ride to other countries if necessary...

Be patient friend....Iīm sure they will anonuce Uk dates soon.
Iīm very happy: 4 shows in Spain!!
Iīll travel to London too if they announce a show. Now itīs very cheap and easy to fly from Zaragoza to London if you buy plane tickets long time before the show date.

Hello my friend ....
you're English is just fine.....
I intend to watch as many shows as possible even if it meens traveling into Europe too.
Went to see them for the first time back in November 81 and they just blew me away as they where so good.
Brian and the Nashvillians played in Glasgow in 2005 and i was so close to the stage i could have tickled his chin lol!

My girlfrien doesnīt like this kind of music, and she cannot understand my passion...like yours, but itīs truth that when you live an experience like a live show of Brian Setzer the evidence is in front your eyes and ears....She had to admit it was fantastic!!
Thatīs whuy next summer sheīll come with me to one show, but Iīll go with one friend to the rest of shows I go.

Hey guys,
I feel lucky because my wife likes the Cats (but I do love them, you see the difference?) and my boys too: there 're teenagers and they went to Paris with us on 5th july 2004 for the first show of the last euro tour. And you can't be sure they absolutely want to see them again next summer Wink

The last time time the Cats played England I had my flights all booked, everything organised for the Brixton show and then my wife was admitted to hospital for surgery. If they are playing England this time round and my wife becomes ill again SHE'S ON HER OWN!!!! I did get to see Brian with the 68 Comeback Special in Vicar Street Dublin, but I think I would almost do anything to see Stray Cats especially if this is the very very last shot. Come on guys what about one massive show here on the Emerald Isle, if not here at least play across this wee stretch of water called the Irish Sea.

Ok Buff, you got me! I may travel as far as London town. But, no further, right? If they play Alaska, i heard it'd be breaking the law if they woke a bear up during hibernation, bur it's ok to shoot one if it's standing up. I have another silly law from England for ya (true). You may shoot a Welshman if he is heading towards Chester City walls, but only with a bow and arrow.

Love

Mikey (may have lost the plot) xx

Daft, yes.........but not as ridiculous as the bar rules in Vermont......you're only allowed to buy one drink at a time per person so if you buy a beer and a shot you have to give the beer to the barman while you drink the shot and then get your beer back again afterwards........crazy !
