    Yes, we all hope that every date of the tour will go off without any problems. But as the saying goes, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. So how many dates will take place? Please vote, and you can narrow your choice down to a specific number by submitting a post.
    The poll will close on the first day of the tour.

    I think that BG is dangerously close, but I'm a player so I will play.
    Based on how he's been lately, I'll go with 24.

    Sal, different game. We're not playing it. Nevermind.

    How about some sort of prize to the person who comes closest to the number of shows that will go on as scheduled?

    Let's keep to the 31 dates scheduled and start now. The rules of the game.

    List the 31 dates MORRISSEY is currently scheduled to play. Each date is worth 3 points. 31 x 3 = 93 points. If you say the date is to go on as scheduled and it does, you get 3 points. If you say the date will be cancelled and it is, you get 3 points. To keep it simple, we won't deal with re-scheduled dates or postponed dates or make ups. That would put us in 2 point, 1 point, etc. territory and we want to keep it simple. The person with the most points at the end wins. I have an incredibly rare poster collection. Why are so many not on the wall? Because so many are not framed. Whomever wins, gets the poster of their choice from my collection, aside from the giant "Viva Hate" from 1988, wider than it is tall, because I won't part with that. It was given to me, in Manchester, in 2004, by a friend.

    NOTE: You may exceed 93 points if you say that Istanbul, Athens, will be scheduled, and either played or not played, bringing the maximum points allowed to 99 points. I'm not dealing with Bucharest and Budapest...sorry, because I am going for as close to 100 points possible without using decimal points.

    Oct. 6 Lisbon - played

    Oct. 9 Madrid - played

    Oct. 10 Barcelona - played

    Oct. 13 Rome - played

    Oct. 14 Rome - played

    Oct. 16 Milan - played

    Oct. 17 Bologna - played

    Oct. 19 Pescara - cancelled

    Oct. 21 Florence - played

    Oct. 22 Padova - cancelled (includes postponed and re-scheduled)

    Oct. 24 Vienna - played

    Oct. 27 Paris - played

    Oct. 28 Utrecht - played

    Oct. 31 Lyon - played

    Nov. 2 Lausanne - played

    Nov. 3 Basel - played

    Nov. 5 Hannover - played

    Nov. 8 Lund - played

    Nov. 9 Copenhagen - played

    Nov. 11 Gothenburg - played

    Nov. 13 Stockholm - played

    Nov. 15 Helsinki - played

    Nov. 16 Helsinki - played

    Nov. 19 Warsaw - cancelled

    Nov. 21 Krakow - cancelled

    Nov. 23 Berlin - played

    Nov. 24 Essen - cancelled

    Nov. 26 Antwerp - played

    Nov. 27 Antwerp - cancelled

    Nov. 29 London - played

    Dec. 1 Dublin - 3Arena - played

    I believe Istanbul will be scheduled and played - add 3 possible bonus points

    Total shows played = 26

    Total shows cancelled = 6

    Cancellation rate: 23%

    Total points possible for me = 32 x 3 = 96 points
