I was having trouble with the MB Dates Added thread going to the last page so I'm thinking it is at it's limit so starting this new thread.
You are going to find a number of things on the web and on band member's websites before I announce, or they end up in the Tour section here, or MB's official Facebook and I want to explain why. Michael's management and tour people start setting things up and working with promoters and venues most times a long time before we hear about them. There are logistics that have to be worked out as well as schedules, deposits, agreements, etc that are all signed and ok'd before Michael's people consider them confirmed. The band member's may put them on their websites also before we do because they are given the dates while they are being worked on, so they will hold those dates in their busy schedules as well. A lot of the band do other gigs when they aren't with Michael so they are asking them to hold those dates. Promoters and venues sometimes post before all is confirmed on Michael's end as well because they want to get the word out and tickets sold but sometimes that works against them and most of us have seen that happen when a concert doesn't work out and tickets have to be refunded or taken down with no explanation. Most of the times the ones you find on websites of the venues or band member's sites do work out but because there is the chance they might not until all i's are dotted we don't post on the main page until it is!!
They are only selling balcony seats to the general public for this one. Season tickets are $500.
Looks as though Michael is coming to the UK 1st August to play the Blue Bell Hotel, Burton Agnes, Bridlington and it is his only UK tour date for 2015. Tickets went on sale today at 8.00 a.m. but I am having trouble on the site so have sent e-mail asking for help. I have sent all details I have found to Gail. In this article you will note that it does say about amateur acts sending CD's to the Hotel and you will get chance to perform in front of Michael....so that looks as though it is new concept for shows.
Sorry link appears strange but I am having to use Google just now to access anything......gremlins about again !!! LOL

Hi Sylvia, well first, the article does say it's Michael's only U.K. gig "so far", so don't despair! :D Second, I obviously don't know if it's just the promoter or the hotel that does that, but it seems to me this is scheduled to be only a one-time thing. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity for local artists though so that's very cool. Thanks for sharing Sylvia, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
I think this could be linked to the special project that MB has been working on? Thoughts?
Added information of Michael's show and it is that booking site has been sorted....everything okay for have spoken to girl at Hotel and their IT rep has corrected error. My ticket and car parking space is BOOKED.......yipeeeeeeeeee !!! OMG what an adventure this is going to be for this old lady.....my first outdoor concert in a field....ROFL I sure had better go to loo before hand or it will definitely the WEE one !!!! LOL
Just to add I have been told gates open at 4.00 p.m. on 1st August and show starts at 6.00 p.m. with Michael due on stage at 8.00 p.m.....roll on 1st August.
