Point I was trying to make is the fault lies with the Glasgow venue as does the York and London shows for not taking a gamble and showing faith. Which is exactly what you state here! I felt like your comment was a derogatory snarl at Robin and JC which is why I commented as I felt the venues pulling of the show was out of their hands and I think it was harsh to state that it was a badly organised tour...

It doesn't feel that long since the Glasgow date was pulled - early Jan wasn't that many weeks ago - but I get your point....

I thought these dates were announced further back than Christmas...but for the life of me I can't remember exactly so I defer to your knowledge on that.

Promotion outside of the Internet nowadays is almost non-existent and not just in the case of this specific tour and a lot depends on venues themselves been heavy self promoters. It all comes down to promotion funds - will employing someone to hand out flyers on a street corner genuinely bring in enough people to warrant this cost. I do agree bands and tour organisers need to be pro active and not sit back, relax and wait for no fooker to turn up! But it is a discussion which is more widespread than this one specific tour, lots of tours have been cancelled or poorly attended and could have done better with more promotion....it's all about money though, when you have limited funds you have to do your best with what you have and sometimes its not enough - but even large tour organisers don't have a bottomless pit of money for promotion!

Firefest are good at getting the word out there but they always quote their biggest promotional tool is US and word of mouth not adverts in NME of the Devonshire Gazzette! and the good thing about us is......*drum roll*...we...are....FREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
