    1. Looks like I may be making a trip up to Portland :(

      But on the bright side my buddy from High School owns Shannahans Irish Pub in Vancouver so I'll crash on his couch and see live music while visiting him.

  2. Was checking the L.A. dates and for a second was thinking "What the hell is the Granny Museum"?

    1. Haha...Grammy museum was the first venue to catch my eye. Pretty upscale venue, though the actual collections are underwhelming. It's a little ironic that there isn't a single display or exhibit featuring The Cure at this so-called museum...correct me if I'm wrong. I think the focus is on acts that have won an award? I haven't been in quite some time, so my recollection is a bit hazy. Veering slightly off topic here, but I still find it frustrating that the band has yet to win an award. While I certainly don't equate a Grammy award with musical accomplishment (especially considering some of the clowns who've managed to garner awards over the years), it would be nice to see my favorite band finally being recognized....Maybe Someday?
      As for the other nearby venues, some of them sound intriguing. Never heard of MeowMeowz, though I've probably passed by there 800 times. Vroman's would've been a better choice but can't really complain with all the options to choose from. I had a feeling Book Soup would be included. I think Vroman's bought out/rescued the latter from closure a few years back.

  5. Dallas usually has book signings at good records, it would be a good place

  6. Oh man, Pearl is only attending one of the dates. I wish that he would be joining for Seattle.

  7. Please include a Northern California date. San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley or San Jose

  8. Phew, thanks for the heads-up. I didn't know there would be tickets to the events at all. Sold out fast! Besides the VIP tickets there are a few super-VIP tickets still left.

  9. I'm seeing an additional location on Songkick for Oct 19th at Lethal Amounts in LA, it's a gallery. Perhaps another Pearl opportunity? Craig, do you happen to have any info? As always, much thanks!!

    1. Yes, more dates are being added, but can't confirm if Pearl will be at the LA show.

      As of now, Pearl is only appearing at the Long Beach show, but they are trying to add more.

    1. ...and for the record, yes, I know that Toronto is in Canada, but it's still in North America, and there are plenty of Cure fans up there.

      Delete
    2. The official graphic above says U.S. Book Tour, not North American, so that leads me to believe Canada won't be included in this round of dates.

      Delete
    3. I figured that. I'm just pointing out that Canada is being neglected.

  12. Still hoping for NOLA after that Dallas date...

  13. For anyone not making it to a reading in the US, Powell's in Porland is selling pre-orders for signed editions.

  14. Hopeful for a Bay Area stop :) Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, San Jose...

  17. Milwaukee would be nice but highly doubtful as the cure only played here once. Probably not on his radar. Anyone in Chicago willing to help me out and get my book signed I cannot get there on the day. Please contact me at here or at crimsonpainmyheartexplodes@gmail

  20. A little shocked there isn't a single date in the SF area....all seven California dates are skewed towards the southern end. I've read that LT's son is in the bay area, perhaps a stop there would've enabled him to do a slight detour and visit his son(?)
    No complaints here, but I feel bad for the bay area fans. Looks like they'll have to make the 6-7 hour drive (or more depending on traffic) or the 1 hr plane ride to the next closest location (LA).

  22. I was hoping for a Washington DC date, maybe I can make it to Nashville.

  23. These are not the final dates to be announced. More will (hopefully) be announced a bit later:

    "and as the pledges keep coming in we hope to be announcing additional dates on the east coast and in Northern California very soon."

  24. Still hoping for a SF bay area date!!!

  25. Argh, I wish he was coming to Miami. From the interview you had before, I never knew he had such a nice voice. I hope he does audio book for this.
