    Because they did the first time 'round. They had to do Europe on the reunion to make up for never making it over there in the 60s.

    I think there's more to it than that. Just hearsay, but I think there initially was talk to do more shows including in the states, but any such plans were quickly scuttled as old tensions between members of the band resurfaced quickly after that started playing together again.

    Also, unlikely this contributed to that, but a good friend of mine is neighbors with one of the supporting players of that tour, and that supporting player says Lou was annoying as hell during that time, as he had recently sobered up and couldn't stop himself from immediately sitting down anyone else he caught having a casual drink on tour with a lengthy fatherly lecture on the benefits of sobriety. Heart was in right place, but sounds like most members of that tour did everything they could to be around Lou as little as possible, especially when they wanted to let off some steam between shows.
