                 While i'm certainly thrilled to see the oils back in 
business,i don't think it will compare to the last 3 times i saw them on 
their final tour at shelly workers,manly leagues and parra 
leagues....smallish intimate places....   being a tad claustrophobic, i'll 
be standing back at the point where the crowd starts to thin out a 
fraction...which means i'll need a step ladder and a telescope to see them 

                                i'm keeping my ears open to hear those magic 
3 words     SECRET WARMUP GIG......
