Default On With the Show Rehearsals

These begin this month, no? Any news? Where are they rehearsing? My guess would be Los Angeles.

I think I read they were due to start this month but I'm not sure whether that was official.
With Micks event on Maui earlier this month I'd say rehearsals wouldn't have been taking place in the first half of July but they could be happening now/soon. I wonder if Christine is back in the States now. Still more than two months until On With The Show- I wonder if they'll fit in some recording with Stevie. The official website is c**p- we really need some updates.

In one of Christine's last interviews before she left for the U.K. in May, she mentioned that she would be back in the U.S. at the end of July. That would be next week. I think she also said that rehearsals would be in August.

August is correct. Early August.

Wow, August? Does this seem really late to anyone? I guess they just have to add Chris' songs into the setlist but still...

seems really early to me, actually.

they have almost 2 months to rehearse all the same songs they've been doing last year plus add a few Chris songs they've been doing for 20-30 years in the past. seems like a huge overkill and waste of time, but we know how rehearsal-crazy this group of people appears to be.

Perfect opportunity for a couple of weeks in a studio!

Elle, I think it might be just the right amount of time if not enough. As a musician, you might be as well, it takes time to relearn songs and especially in different keys. Stevie, Lindsey, and Chris must tighten that amazing beautiful harmony that only they can do. and Chris needs to rehearse every song 5 or ten times to get it down. I have faith, I also can't believe it at the same time. Can you?

Maybe they need that time to rehearse the statements they are going to say in between songs?

All joking aside, we know the band is already familiar with the set but the crew has to be trained what goes where and how it's all done. I doubt they have the same people on every tour working for them.

so true, except for John, who just utters a few words. I look forward to hearing Christine's talking voice - her sultry thick English accent.

There are the harmonies, breaking Christine back in, technical rehearsal, weeding out songs from the set. There's so much to do. It almost seems like not enough time.
