Re: Fall/Winter Tour?...
Winter tour will not be announced until at least September, this is also going to be a short run of shows as has already been posted multiple times so they will not need much time to get it the ticketing done. You will see an announcement on the date/location of Farm Aid before you get a Winter tour announcement, last year Farm Aid didn't announce a location until August. This year is looking a lot like 2005, Summer Tour thru September, Rock Rocks added on/Wrigley added on....Oct shows in Vegas/Oct shows in South America, winter tour starting in November.
Based on the current schedule, I'd expect Farm Aid to be Sept 25/26th.
Also don't forget Dave or DMB could also play the Bridge School Benefit.
Here's the 2005 announcement, Sept 21st
