Yes there will be both a European and Antipodean leg, I'm sure.
Mick needs to squeeze out every last possible penny while he's got the chance because after this, that's it.... back to being a restauranteur and Rick Vito's side man for his final years.

Only if the band deems it sufficiently profitable. If they don't think there's enough interest to generate a wide enough profit margin, they won't go. From what I understand, there are a lot of additional expenses when touring Europe, and people overseas aren't as keen to pay the kind of prices Americans have come to accept for "VIP experiences." Less money to be made.

Surely there will be enough interest in Australia, though, since everyone keeps telling me Finn is a big deal Down Under.

I also thought I read/heard that Stevie has solo commitments mid-late 2019. I think that came out when they were claiming Lindsey wanted to push the FM tour off until 2019. Since the band is now walking away from that, no way of knowing if itís actually true

I would be shocked if they didn't tour down under. And if this is a farewell tour, I'd be shocked about not going to Europe. Certainly, sales can't be that bad?

It looks as if the additional meet & greet income alone would be enough to keep his restaurant afloat for another couple of years.

Ha! I wonder who would pay for that. Interesting to see if that sells.

Cant speak for the rest of Europe or 'down under' but in the UK I think there'd be less people bothered by the Lindsey Buckingham fiasco so I think ticket sales would again be really healthy (they always have been here for the past few tours). I can't see them not making a mint from a visit to the UK.

If I remember correctly, they did quite well with Billy and Rick in Europe.
I personally really enjoyed that show.

It's really subjective though. So just because you think it's idiotic or a poor use of money, doesn't make that true for someone else.

Other people can afford to drop $600 on this. Not me and clearly not you, but others.

I got a giggle from the phrase "antipodean leg" (the "pod" in antipode means "foot").
