    I really want to go and see them as well. Is the singer, Eldritch, the only remaining original member. Also, Wayne Hussey (he used to date my old french teacher) from The Mission UK and SOM is doing a solo tour. I missed the California dates though.
    Upcoming shows:

    it appears I am done with shows for the year. the holiday season is upon us and i work in retail management(I know,I know).we don't get to make any time off requests between mid.October and December 25th.
    If they were to play in Ventura County or even Santa Barbara County I could go. I pray the Ventura Theatre books them.

    yes Andrew Eldritch is the only original member. I did see Wayne Hussey from the good ol' Mission about a week ago. Had a blast as I got to hang and get wasted with him before and after the show. Got great pics. Wayne can sure put away bottles and bottles of red!

    I saw them a couple of years ago. Don't get your expectations set too high. It was Andrew and two guitarists, one of whom didn't appear to do anything but jump up and down. They sounded good, but really we might as well have been listening to a Greatest Hits CD in a smoke filled room.

    And I saw them in 1991 and they were brilliant, so I do have a fair reference point.

    Ooo, Lush would have been a great opener.

    I saw them at this...


    Good times. Maybe he'll get his act together this year, but they were just embarrassing in '06. (But not the worst reunion show I saw that year...that would be Nitzer Ebb.)

    OH man, I am so fucking jealous of you.

    Also, this is cool. I wanted to see them when they came around last time but ended up not going. I hope they come here.

    Like the Stevie Nicks song? I don't recall that. I'm sure we didn't get a full set. Maybe 75 minutes and they had to stop the show for 5 or 10 minutes because people were getting crushed. That actually was one of the scariest crowds I've ever been in. I was up against the baricade all evening, but we retreated about 2 songs into SOM. It was like being in a zombie movie, just this wall of goth kids slowly pushing forward.

    Nope, here's the west coast swing...

    2008 November 20 Denver Colorado Odgen Theater

    2008 November 22 Portland Oregon Roseland

    2008 November 23 Seattle Washington El Corazón

    2008 November 24 Vancouver British Columbia Commodore

    2008 November 26 San Francisco California Warfield

    2008 November 28 Las Vegas Nevada House of Blues

    2008 November 29 San Diego California House of Blues

    2008 November 30 Anaheim California House of Blues

    2008 December 02 Los Angeles California Henry Fonda Theater

    I guess they could squeeze Phoenix in on the 21st. Crowd was pretty sparse in '06...I bet they just won't bother.

    always good to see some Ventura Theater love here. I miss living down the street from that place. So many good shows...Aquabats, Flogging Molly, Snoop Dogg, Queens of The Stone Age, BloodHound Gang...

    theres a lot of interesting stuff coming too. I want to make it to Gwar, maybe Reverend Horton Heat. And it's not Ventura Theater without Bone Thugs stopping by at twice a year. I'm sure they will stop by again on their reunion tour
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    Well don't really expect to see them. I have never seen a band pump so much smoke/fog into a show...unless you were within 2 rows of the stage all that you saw was colored fog...no im not exaggerating. I hope your shows are better than when I saw them as I rank it as one of, if not the worse, show i have been to.

    I saw them on one of the dates they did with public enemy back in 91. I also saw them in 2006 in Dallas the show was pretty cool but there were a lot of stupid young goth kids trying to mosh and it ruined the show

    Ah, if only I could go to Disneyland on my wedding anniversary and see them at the House of Blues! I don't think Jacob cares about them at all though.
