i really think these venues are way way way too big!!!
at TSP zenith in 1996/1997 and the end in 2000 they managed these kind of halls
now i can’t see these selling out
they should have chosen the 3.500 – 5.000 capacity venues instead i think

i know the Dutch date and venue but cannot say just yet
i think it might be announced tomorrow in Dutch newspaper ads
however – it’s not what you might expect!!!

November 16, 2007 – As tour winds down, Pumpkins look forward to Jan-Feb European Tour

The Smashing Pumpkins have begun preparations for their European tour beginning in January by reheasing 9 songs they have not yet played on the Zeitgeist tour so far.

With the larger venue sizes in Europe, the band is reaching into their back catalog to look for those songs that will lend themselves to the arena feel.
====================

So what does this mean? Perhaps some of those fan favorites that have eluded us since the bands return will poke their head out of the proverbial closet. Only time will tell.

Let the speculation begin!

From what I’ve heard it isn’t that good indeed. You might want to get to the Brabanthallen for some livestock or a cattle-show, but not for a concert… Moohoo, like cows??

I will also be there. Brussels is too far compared to Den Bosch.
So far I couldn’t convince mr Fox to go….

I’m a little bit disappointed that they have not specified a reason as to why the first 2 dates were cancelled. If it’s personal they don’t have to give details, they can simple say it was due to a “family emergency”. If it was due to poor weather or lack of ticket sales then they should say so as well. As far as I know Serbia and Hungary have never had a show played there. It’s simply disappointing that they would not at least let those fans know why they may never get the chance to see SP.
