with The Royalty

I'd love to try and see a show on this tour, but unfortunately it isn't in the cards given the timing and of course Minnesota isn't too close to any of these locations. But as I posted a bit ago

they are finally touring the US! It appears to be just on the West Coast this Fall, but in more than 1 interview with Dan Moxon this Summer, he said the belief is they are looking to do a full-scale US Tour next year.

So hopefully this will be the 1st of a handful of tours for them in the coming months, and I'll manage to either see them in Minnesota, or perhaps at least in another city when my schedule and budget allow. They're in Scottsdale on the evening I'm seeing The Monkees with Michael Nesmith in Minneapolis, lol. Scottsdale probably would have been my 1st choice among those location purely due to the fact I would have a place to stay and a car likely given I have family there during the Winter.

edit: it appears they played a show in Chicago last night, and Michigan on Saturday???. I suppose logistics of timing would have made it nearly impossible for me to see them, but I can't help but be a bit saddened. Although at least I got to see Poncho Sanchez finally, after 10 years, this past Friday night. The fact they did a last-minute Chicago show stings a little bit.
