That tour is not gonna happen. Ive been hearing that, weve all been hearing that for awhile. I get asked [about] it regularly. And as far as a tour going on, its not gonna happen. Conflicting schedules, conflicting personalities, [a lot of] conflicting things. Its a good idea, though. And personally, I can see the significance of playing a tour like that, but its not gonna happen.
