I really gotta wonder how these people can´t handle any dates to Scandinavia??
I mean Chris hasn´t been playing here since early/mid 90´s and Scandinavia
ain´t that far so the distance can´t be the reason...
With that kind of pause between the last gig over here it would be easy to sell out any venue...
Too many good words to add here.
I better just sit back and drink beer. :)

Thank you Lily for posting the full schedule.
I've noticed that Chris will take some days off in-between concerts in all those far away places: Moscow, Minsk, Kiyev, Warsaw. I don't blame him. It's a growling expirience for anyone to travel thousends of miles from one city to another. It's definitely not like going from Hamburg to Munich on Intercity or by plane.
Take care,
Chris

I'm really sorry Mr. Blues, guess you'll have to come to St. Petersburg.
Oh well... I guess I'm going, even if he'll do all the hits again.

So you get to see Chris in Warsaw after all Chris...:-)

Kremlin Palace seems to be the biggest venue, wonder if he'll fill it up? That is a long trip!

Well, he is still touring like in the old days, after his operation and healing process it was said that he would have to find another way of touring, well this is still the same old way. Guess he has to be in heavy medicine all the time to be able to handle it or was that only exaggeration about finding new way of touring.

Guess that´s one of the closest places, but that can´t happen as I´m afraid I can´t travel that far during that time of the year.

Hi Lily,
I must say, with due respect, that Chris Rea remains rather true to his Polish fans. Through the years he always included a Polish stop-over (mostly Warsaw but also Katowice, Sopot or Poznan) to play a concert here. He was here for the first time in late 1970's, when he was practically unknown! I already wrote about it (a couple of times) on this forum. It would sound now like some ancient history should I try to repeat it, so I won't.
What's interesting though, he picked Warsaw once to promote a new album. I believe it was either the "Expresso Logic" or the "King of The Beach" (I would have to check which one it was) and he had two TV 'specials', so we cannot complain a bit about "being neglected." Especially, since other countries have not received a similar treatment. I mean somehow "forgotten" Scandinavia (Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.) or dropped from this tour Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. So, I understand Mr. Blues who would have to travel to St Petersburg should he decide to see Chris this time around. For Mr. Blues it would have been much easier to hop across the bay on a ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn (Estonia) instead of batteling in early February snow, ice and possibly severe frost on his way to St Petersburg.
By-the-way, the Torwar Hall, he will play this time in Warsaw (instead of the 'regular' venue the Sala Kongresowa ((Congress Hall))), serves normally as an ice skating ring and it's bigger than the Congress Hall.
Take care,
Chris

Same change here, but in different direction. Chris played in Kremlin in 2006 (6,000 max.), then in Luzhniki in 2008 (7,500 max.), now back in Kremlin in 2010.

You are right pizzaaddi, this is the original provisional list and some of the dates will change, like they did on the last tour. Each venue should have accurate dates on their sites.

Bart, you seem to be back :)

So, Paul Casey will be on tour band during the next tour. Still sure that Robert is there as well?
Or is it really gonna be three guitars this time? That could be interesting.
Wonder what kind of part this Casey will have in the band...
