Short album tour = Truth 20?
 
Looking at the album tour dates, there's only UK. Nothing in ROI or Northern Ireland either, or Europe.

Does this mean, there's going to be some Truth 20 shows at the end of next year?

Would be great, but we'll know if Resistance Is Futile is a big enough success to be able to afford such a tour?
I'm more into what their next album is going to be like to hope for Truth20 dates.

You'd imagine that (given the humongous lead time) the tour will expand into Europe at some point. But this also looks like an attempt to play fewer, but bigger shows with breathing room in between them rather than loads of little consecutive ones. (Which is common sense really.) But otherwise you'd think it'll be a few dates book-ending the year, rather than tonnes of dates.

I doubt they’d do a US tour for Truth, like they did for The Holy Bible, but I would absolutely love another box set, the album over two LPs, finally, lots of extra artwork and some of the bsides on vinyl. It’s be absolutely glorious and I’d buy it the second it’s released.

Agreed.

The band were very quick to point out that they felt they could do the THB20 tour because RTF and Futurology did well enough that they proved they were not creatively redundant.

A Truth20 tour would be taking the piss, frankly. I don't mind a few songs making their way back into the set when they tour next year, but does ANYONE really want SYMM live?

I'm definitely up for a box set but not an album tour..no interest at all in hearing symm live

MSPKYE 17-12-2017 18:19

Would absolutely love a box set and I bet they’ve got plenty of material for one. As far as gigs, don’t think they need to do a full tour but I’d either like them to headline Festival No.6 and do the album in full there or do a one off gig with an orchestra at Cardiff Millenniun Centre.

No chance of a Truth 20 tour. I'd say there will be a fair smattering of Truth songs in 2018 sets though. Would love to see a full band version of Black dog on my Shoulder. More likely to see RFD and Prologue as the main Truth era "curios".

Ah! I love that song. My favorite on the album still.

I’m definitely not yearning to hear SYMM live, but there are plenty of songs on that album I’d love to see them play again, like Ready for drowning, My Little Empire, Black Dog etc. Also I never saw them do Nobody Loved You, my favourite from the album (did they ever play it live?) So I’d love a Truth20 gig. I like MSPKYE’s idea of a show at the Millennium Centre - I love that venue!

If they actually put their hearts into it and acknowledged how majestic that song could sound if they focused on bringing its gorgeous atmospheric touch into the live setting, yeah I'd like to see it happen. Given the band's allergy for the song and for doing anything beyond a standard rock sound live I doubt it'd ever happen like in my daydreams, but hey.

A Truth 20 boxset would be really fantastic but that would mean they'd have to acknowledge Truth beyond its singles, so I'm not really expecting it to actually happen. I think the short tour is just that, a short tour - with enough manouver room to take the tour to Europe after the album release.

Suicide Aldi 18-12-2017 12:07

I want to hear SYMM live. Always liked it. Fail to understand the hate toward it.

Marconi Delorian 18-12-2017 20:05

The lyrics, probably. But musically it is fantastic and I'd love to hear a good attempt at a full band version.

Suicide Aldi 18-12-2017 21:28

I dont see the problem with the lyrics.

ForeverDelayed.com 19-12-2017 03:30

There’s that one live SYMM version, I don’t mind it at all
