    I need to tactically try and work out where is likely to be least popular. Somebody was moaning they thought this is going to be £75 per ticket. I think that price is fine for this kinda thing. I’ve preordered a signed cd on Music Glue for £10.99

    I'm not going to try for myself, but I'm quite happy to try for anyone else if it would be useful.

    Bless you but I am having enough trouble getting rid of my extra Cher tickets without risking THAT kind of palaver...

    In other music, I quite like Dance Music, but it’s a middle of the album track at best.

    Finally heard Dance Music. It's fine and serviceable and makes me gag for more.

    Tickets are £75 plus fees so probably around £90. The Glasgow one is the night before I go to Tel Aviv so I’m not sure I’ll be able to go. I don’t think tickets will be that hard to get at those prices.

    I’m cock-a-hoop that they took your Italian classes into account.

    This breathless promo blurb nonsense is just too, too much :D

    Numerous EPs... WHERE? That walk down memory lane comment by Sara too...

    Well whilst I do feel they have upped their efforts with the last tour and this project (because they have to basically) I did smile/eye roll at the “zero complacency” and “we’d make an album every year if we could” bits.

    It is interesting that they've launched the album with a taster track rather than full single. I'm assuming that Love In Stereo will be the single proper; if so it'll be the first one without a writing credit for a while (unless they have changed a few words and nabbed one).

    Spotify says that Richard X produced Dance Music as well but I wouldn't be surprised if that was a mistake, it sounds more Ian Masterson to me. It is a shame that they don't appear to have written with Richard X though.

    There are clips of the whole thing on 7digital. Is this normal three months before an album is released? I have only listened to Love In Stereo, Looking For Someone and Got To Get Away, and I'll save the rest. Looking For Someone has a very good breezy chorus but they unfortunately seem to be persisting with the solo struggle vocals. I very much think that Got To Get Away is a hold over from when they got into watching Nashville on the telly and threatened a country album for a while.

    I’m conflicted whether to get tickets tomorrow. I’m wondering if they sell quickly if they’ll add more that might be handier. On the other hand it’s Sara and Keren, that might be far too much promo to consider.

    Dance Music is a grower.

    I think I'm going to give it a go. It'll be just me as I wouldn't be able to convince anyone else to go to a duo show at £75 plus fees. The two London venues both seem to be about 300 capacity, it'll be interesting to see just how quick they sell.

    I'd say there is a pretty reasonable chance they'll end up doing Mighty Hoopla this year, so that would be a fair back up if all fails.

    I do like Keren appearing to go OFF SCRIPT here

    At 300 each, they'll sell out in moments- even at £75. SURELY!?

    I'm leaning towards the Borderline one as I wonder if the Friday night might be more in demand as the first show, but then it is Saturday and I don't imagine there being a lot in it.

    I can't REALLY do the Saturday, so I'm PRAYING ABOVE HOPE that it's the Friday that is less busy as people will prefer to travel if they have to on a non-work day...

    I do think it's going to be a bit of a BUNFIGHT, though.

    Ended up £85 per ticket, but think nature of this show should be worth it.

    Drama and Viva reissues are also on Spotify and only £7.99 on iTunes.

    Weren't they banging on last week about it being the first time they'd ever done small, album launch shows?

    And yet "Viva" has a note from the both of them saying "We launched the album with an intimate fan show at The Garage in Islington..." :D

    Has to be said, though, the packages themselves aren't up to much considering the price- no proper liner note essay like you get in most reissues, literally just a few sentences from the girls (no big surprise there) and cardboard sleeves for each disc which aren't the easiest to get out.

    They look nice, I guess...

    ... a show which was ESSENTIALLY FREE. :D

    I know these are different times and they are coming off the reunion but it is interesting - The Garage is probably a bit bigger than these venues but I don't recall it being particularly packed in there.

    I presume these little gigs have all sold out now?

    My copy of Viva arrived complete with a small crease to my displeasure. The London Edsel ones were much nicer and cheaper but reissues on the Cherry Red labels usually have an essay; the only CD I have on SFE is Reputation which is packaged similarly but does have lengthy notes. Never mind, I am pleased to have the Viva new to CD stuff anyway. Drama will keep for now.

    Just the two London gigs so far but I’m sure the rest will follow.

    I can imagine the pair of them putting off and dreading having to spend the day compiling the liner notes for the reissues and struggling to put together a few lines.

    I know the shows are likely going to be five or six songs from the new album plus the big hits, but as it will be a loon crowd it would be nice if a few different songs were chosen. After being CRUELLY JETTISONED on the reunion tour there should be some kind of campaign for a bit of Love, Truth and Honesty.

    So glad they played it on the opening night of the tour but I think this gig will bound to be the biggest classic Siobhan era hits, some new stuff and maybe Movin On, Move In My Direction and Love Comes if we’re lucky.

    There still seem to be tickets available for all the shows. :(

    Once they launch a proper single and do some promo hopefully they'll flog the rest.

    Surely they'll have to put their full names on. Trying to pretend it wasn't their song originally seems a little futile.
