Wednesday, 8 August
At The Drive-In have dangled the possibility that there could be more from the band after this summer's reunion dates (including UK shows at the Reading And Leeds Festivals). "It's another chapter, that's all it is. If you think of it as another chapter, you're fine. If you think of it as you're trying to relive something, you're fucked," explained Tony Hajjar when asked if the current reunion will damage the band's legacy. "This is just our next chapter, and there might be another chapter or we might close the book. That's all we're trying to do, and have a good time while doing it."
Threats of violence towards performers and gig-goers have been made ahead of two Madonna gigs in Russia.
