    So many things but this one made me chuckle...no holograms then?

    Yes are renowned for their impressive stage shows. What do you have lined up for this tour?
    We`ll be concentrating on the music. If you look around there`s some incredible shows out there with projections, lighting and special effects. We`re just going to go out and play and that`s what we do best. We just can`t keep up with these huge, futuristic visualisations. When you perform songs like Heart of The Sunrise, Rhythm Of Love and Awaken, which is an amazing piece of music, you don`t need all of the big effects, we just want to let people enjoy the music without any distractions.

    “ Next year I`ll tour do a solo tour with a full orchestra and choir doing 1000 Hands and my `70`s solo album Olias Sunhillow.”

    Wow. Now that’s something of real interest if it comes off.

    And don’t forget, he’s also working on the new ARW album which now purportedly might have 60 minutes of new music. Plus, they might be using a symphony orchestra for the recording. Plus, they might do something big and crazy to celebrate the release of said album next Spring. Plus, Jon is working on six other projects. Plus, and this is the most exciting news of all, Jon has discovered land under the Brooklyn Bridge that will be available to all of us, only through his website of course. Wow, our collective cup runneth over.

    But isn't he droll when he sits down on his diamond chair and starts telling… and if only less than the half gets true it still would be fine, I mean they can omit the choir, I find...

    Replace the word droll with stoned and you’re probably closer to the truth. What surprises me isn’t what Jon says but that people take the bait.

    Yeah I don't wanna get too excited because if they don't play it I will cry, but it would be nice.

    If the minimal changes to the set are just introducing an old warhorse like "Starship Trooper", I think that might disappoint.

    Well old Warhorse with new ending and new concert opening music maybe replacing Cinema ?

    I suspect (hope) other set changes, as Mr Holland said - they have been rehearsing for longer than expected

    They can play what they want. It's their job and up to them how they do it. You don't have to go to the concert.
    Jon can do what he wants, he's earned that privilege. His private lifestyle is his business.
    He owes you nothing, you're not entitled to a piece of him, you're not related or his friend.

    interesting too the reference to the Squire estate in regards to the ARW use of the name YES. It was a factor I speculated previously on

    I love "Starship Troopers", but a new ending, I fear, will mean Wakeman noodling over "Wurm" as he has in other contexts.
