Hmmmm.... I wonder if "World Tour" includes the USA. Hopefully it does, but I doubt it :0(

You would think wouldnt you? I cant imagine how much the shipping and tech bills would be for moving that lot around the globe, maybe they'll go by boat, which is why there's a three momth break in the dates?

Noone gets tired of doing classics... Pink Floyd members are still playing Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Clapton still plays Layla... And it seems that he's now playing stuff that he hasn't played for ages too!

I was a but gutted that i didnt go when he was in the uk last year ( i think), but then some bright spark posted the other stuff on youtube, where the memorymoog (surprise surprise..not), went totally into orbit tuningwise. There was also footage of him struggling to tune all the arps and synthi's during a soundcheck.

With modern crating and transport, its not too much of a hassle, and im sure he isnt taking the big modulars out to play. Having said that, ive personally seen people ship stuff (including ULTRA RARE modulars)all over the place, just to get it tuned and cleaned up, so to speak, so money certainly isnt an issue for the big names
