Oh please let us fans in the U.S.know if we will be lucky because just like Wally there is alot of us here that would love to see them.I have been a big fan ever since the late 70`s but never got the chance to see them perform even for the twelve years I lived in Europe.

Just wait for reports of inclement weather in all seven circles of Hell and news that the Committee of the Winter Olympics is making a site visit with a view to using it as a skating venue, then you'll know it's time to start hoping properly.

However, for those resident in the great rendering vat that is the Untied Kingdom, the next best thing is available in the sturdy form of MONUMENT, whose renditions of the sacred material are certainly worth getting to see and hear. Okay, the stage sets may not be as impressive or costly, but once the music starts that's not such an issue.

Apart from the fact that John (Foxx) has started playing hes songs closer to there original sound and length, and the use of projectors for part of the visual show, there is still the need IMO for real guitars and drums. Robin Simon joining John and Louis for there tours, is the nearest thing to any reforming but even that is unlikely. And remember thats people with no personal problems, its just an unlikely music bussiness move. The chance of Ultravox reforming is sadly farther than most groups who have since got back together.

Really? So Endlessly is no longer a 7 minute opus that consists of a couple of minutes singing and the melody on an endless loop for 3 minutes at the end to techno-ish beat?

There really is a move IN GENERAL towards making songs shorter and played with a more band feel to them. The evidance for shorter songs is in 'Live From A Room' as opposed to the 'Exotour'. And the want for guitars is in the new use of synths on 'From Trash'.
