More sound, More silences. For the ones who love us and the ones we love. We'll see you soon. We'll bring our musical rollercoaster right up close and whisper in your ear. In Scotland aye, en France c'est certain, Deutschland, España, Italia, Canada and the USA yeah yeah yeah. Maybe this year we'll even play in England!. A tous mes amis qui font que ce rêve continue. A bientôt. To the silent majority everywhere...


To the silent majotity :

A chapter closes but this is an epic romance - something worth fighting for - oh yes. We'll trip down this ancient street again someday soon and when we do come and say hello.

A tous mes amis en France j'ai passé les meilleurs moments de ma vie dans votre pays. Gros bisous - A bientôt.
