TBTGOG and Nixon for me. TBTGOG (and maybe She is Suffering) might be the only single(s) I haven't heard live.

Slash n burn, loves sweet exile, from despair to where, revol, she is suffering, Kevin carter (!), the everlasting, so why so sad, found that soul, there by the grace of god, the live of richard Nixon and empty souls.
All songs I've not seen live

My brother ordered us both tickets for this as he is on 02, yay!!!!!! I'm looking forward to this now more than my current travels throughout the USA (In Miami right now, not really impressed but anyway..)
Looking forward to hearing Nixon live again (wicked solo!), Life Becoming A Landslide, Revol, TBTGOG and the new single (is it even a proper single, is it getting released as one?). Yay!!!
Probably have to book accomodation somewhere for the night and travel down by train or coach. Anyone recommend any cheap close accomodation to the arena? Thanks

Haha! Toronto is about 2160 km (about 1600 miles) from where Diva lives in Edmonton (western Canada). It's not like she could walk home from Toronto.

Yeah, I could get a non-stop, roundtrip ticket from Toronto to London UK for just under $1,000 CAN if I wanted. I also have a good friend there who lives in Battersea so I could save loads on accommodations, but I can't go. The late fall right upto the day before Christmas eve is the busiest time in the ad industry. No one takes significant time off during that period. So yeah, that's a no from me.

I'm still waiting for them to make good on that promise to come back to N America in two years. Oh wait! They said that two years ago! LOL! I knew they were just blowing smoke when they made such a ridiculous declaration.

Great Pretender, I work at a university, too. Getting time off just before winter term? I don't think so. However, if I do win the lotto or some fairy godmother visits me...

I could walk home from Toronto. May take me about 70-80 days - it's winter and the footing isn't great.
