    The Palace would’ve been the ideal venue for seeing them live, but with the cheapest tickets being $35, what do you expect? With fees, this show would’ve set me back close about $120 just for tickets for me and my family… Forget about gas, dinner and merch… The current economy does not support this kind of nostalgia.

  3. I love “Head” and unashemedly enjoy the other stuff too, but “3/4ths of the fake and from 45 years ago isn’t going to move tickets.

    The tour began in England with a GREAT TURN OUT. Sold out shows, and it was supposed to last until July in Milwaukee. Their 2nd to LAST show was in L.A. where THEY ROCKED to a FULL THEATER. In fact, the show was SO succesfull that someone in their staff thought of adding more shows, which are the ones that are now cancelled. I doubt that the official reason was “due to internal group issues and conflicts”, thats just what ppl want to say to spew their comedic attacks.. If you google reviews of the show you may just realize that some of you really missed out.

    Their show had clips of the tv show, commercials, videos of their music, including clips from ‘Head.’ it really felt like a musical, and aside from Micky and Peter playhing they included a good set of musicians which made the music come alive very refreshed… their set list was really something, i knew i was gonna like the show, i didnt know i was going LOVE it!

    I saw the show at the beacon theatre on 6/16 & it was fabulous. I do not think that it was anything but
    internal conflicts/ These guys have a history of fighting before or maybe they were not getting as big a piece of the pie! I was going to go to Westbury and now we may never see them in concert again.

    The NY Show was sold out as was westbury. I am sad.
