So excited for you guys, but please Ben - put some UK dates up!  We're getting desperate over here.

first weekend of november baby, three back to back to back gigs. gonna be aaaaaawesome!

I think I'm starting to realize that there's no turning back, as if there ever were for me, once you do a 3 concert in a row deal.

I think we need either shirts or signs.  I'm not trying to be self-centered when I say they should be based on me...

i've already been thinking about "followers of DAVID" shirts. and i don't even know the whole joke! "team DAVID"??

Hello hello hello

Nnnggg-- can't let myself get dragged back in. Argh... too much to do.

Meanwhile, I had the *weirdest* dream last night in which I had to go on holiday to the US in order to visit Ben en famille and stay with them for the weekend (near Chicago, for some reason!)

Which must have been my subconscious saying BEN WILL YOU COME TO THE UK AND DO SOME GIGS PLEASE!!!

I want a special Royal Festival Hall evening with readings from Mr Hornby and a gig *and* I want seats and not the crap house Shepherds Bush Empire where I made my toes numb for a week last time (wearing high heel boots so I could see!)

*And* I want a special under 14's gig with no swearing (ha ha) so I can take my piano learning 6 year old and explain that *this* is the guy she's not allowed to listen to much of yet but isn't he just the bestest piano player ever.

etc.

In other news: hello all! I'll hopefully go away again now ;) Sorry I missed Ben's birthday if you all did a thing.

A gig in our front room would also make up for the otherwise deficient number of gigs ;)
Hello. I am me.

Does anyone else find it annoying that they won't post the prices of the VIP packages for the Nashville Symphony show? I have to know if it's worth it or not.....

Hmm this sound interesting but $30 is a lot for a ticket.  Ben's also doing a National Geographic talk on his photography in DC in early December which I may also go to.  But more importantly, how have people already gotten tickets to the Philly show?  Since there's no DC date yet I was thinking about going to that show but I want a good seat if I'm gonna make the trip.  Call me out of the loop but could anyone explain?

just saw that you said you didn't quite get the whole story.  I think the creator of DAVIDISBEN sums it up pretty well:
