Electric Six Tour Update

Just a heads up for our thousands of UK readers (per week).  E6 will be postponing their fall tour due to a kid on the way.  Here is the statement:
People of the United Kingdom and Ireland...Electric Six is compelled to announce that the band's shows for November and December of 2017 will not take place on the originally scheduled dates. Instead, those shows will now take place in February and March 2018. All Nov/Dec shows have been rescheduled for Feb/March 2018 except for Sheffield...we couldn't work it out, Sheffield. We're sorry. We're sorry. We'll make it up to you at some point in the relatively near future. You can find the new dates listed here on this page under "tour dates." Venues remain unchanged.
If you already have purchased tickets for any of the scheduled shows, your tickets will be valid for the new date. If the new date doesn't work for you for some reason, you can obtain a refund by contacting the point of purchase (the venue, Ticketmaster, etc.). Obviously, anyone who purchased tickets for Sheffield will be entitled to a refund.
Before anyone asks, MANY European dates will be announced shortly for this new tour as well, and those dates will take place starting at the very beginning of February. Keep your eyes peeled for those shows right here or at electricsix.com
Now, after all of that...you may be wondering why these shows needed to be rescheduled. For that, we turn to a missive from the desk of Dick Valentine:
"Kate and I are expecting the arrival of our second kid in mid-to-late November and this of course makes it impossible for me to commit fully to the entirety of our UK/Europe tour at the end of the year, thusly, we are postponing the whole year-end tour a few months, into February and March of 2018.. We're happy for us. You should be too. However if you are determined to take the low road here, to be obstinate, to be selfish, to refuse to accept that Electric Six will not be there for you this holiday season as it has been for so many years....then I am willing to schedule a fight with you so this bullshit can be settled once and for all. Each fight will take place at a time and venue that is mutually agreed upon between us. Contact my FB page and we'll set up the fight via personal message. We'll set up a time and place and I will be there, buddy. I don't care if you got a whip, I don't care if you got a chain, I don't care if you got a shotgun. Just so you know, my personal preference is to fight at Primark...it's usually well-lit in there, and thusly, the fights are more fair."

Another kid on the way.  I talked to my bookie Honch out in Vegas and he has the odds of yet another Electric Six Kickstarter by the end of the year at 2/1.  In the words of the great Rodney Dangerfield, "Place your bets, place your bets."

What a joke.
