Well, I guess don't get too excited, as they are really not going that crazy, but originally it was just two California dates, now there's three more added for when the band plays back on home soil, in September.
The sad thing for many fans, is that they are still restricting this run of shows to pretty much the West Coast.
No word on any new recording at this time and as David Paich told me in an interview earlier this year - Yes, I know, it's not posted yet! Getting these interviews typed up, believe me ... Takes forever! - that the recording period of the band is considered over ...
I sincerely hope they rethink that, as there is such talent within these guys, as their heritage clearly speaks for itself on.
