Really? I take it you do remember 1997 to 2004 from Maladjusted to YATQ, SEVEN years without a record deal?!?! He toured frequently in those inbetween years so why would it stop him this time? Have you ever realised no matter what adversities he encounters he finds a way to overcome them. Both Leeds & London were well attended despite the 'virus hysteria' plus the short time from gigs being announced to taking place, most bands are announcing gigs approx one year in advance to play the UK arenas, Moz announces gigs approx three months in advance, not always easy to pull that off.
Sure. Virus hysteria. Wow. Lol
