Could have included more cities rather than just doing 2 nights in one place. Lazy buggers. As usual with most bands these days no Newcastle date. Surely Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester, Wolverhampton would have allowed more people easy access and still same number of dates. London is so long after can only hope dates to be added but probably just off around Europe in February and March before returning to Olympia (at least thats a Saturday)

Guys, please come to Dublin.
I saw you at Marlay Park in August, amazing.
I want to see more!

Do everybody u18 in Ireland a favour and play somewhere where we can go!! ( i.e NOT the Academy or the Ambassador!!)

Funnily enough Ireland isnt in the Uk.
So why would you demand they play a date for there UK tour in Ireland?
More problems logging into my Pionners what a surprise!
I hope it works when tickets go on sale!

Belfast indeed is in the UK, I was simply refering to the comments asking to play in Dublin and Ireland.
Dissapointed theres only one London date.
I reckon they should have opted for the 02!
That would of been pretty amazing.....(again)
