Procol Harum for the USA?

Send your opinions to BtP and the band's management

Procol Harum have been asked to consider doing some US dates starting on 20 April 2003 on the East Coast and ending in Los Angeles around 4 May 2003. It is proposed that the dates would be intimate venues where the band could get a real chance to relate to the audience.

This is a change from the normal concert set-up and BtP would like to solicit visitors' views on the possibility, which will be fed back directly to Procol management. So please answer carefully and DO NOT overstate your case. The last thing we want is to build up any sort of expectation that cannot be realised. Far better for Procol to play a few dates and sell them out - more likely to promote a return visit. Similarly, do not submit multiple responses. This is not the same as a vote-AWSoP-up-the-charts exercise!

Please don't respond, on this occasion, if you don't live in North America. And please be aware that the publication of these questions doesn't promise or guarantee that the band will actually get offered suitable gigs in the USA.

Some of these questions relate not to the tour issue directly, but to your attitudes to BtP and your Procol-listening habits. If the results are interesting BtP may make a survey page about them, but we will present only statistics, and not personal details.

Lastly: your e-mail address is safe with us ... we won't pass it on to anyone outside Procoldom.
