It's so sad to see them stop touring here, as they are such a fun live band. October will not be the same without the usual BFS tour. I wish I could go to ever date on the tour, but being a poor student I can't manage that. I'll definately be at the London date, and hopefully Liverpool too.
This kind of sucks. Never got to see them live, and probably that won't change in the near future. Even though I understand the reasons for them not to tour anymore, I don't see the pointing in not playing live shows if you are a band. I mean, that's your passion - and even if ticket sales aren't going well, I guess it's fulfilling to be able to play for your loyal followers, it doesn't matter if that happens on the O2 Academy in the UK or in a small club in Texas.
