I'm not saying it isn't going to happen. We always have a wonderful time when we tour down under. Gorgeous scenery, great people, what's not to like? At the moment, though, it's all very much up in the air.x.

Hey Jimmy,

Thanks for the response. Raggamuffin this year didn't have as much of a plug as it did the year before too which is probably why ticket sales were so bad. No ad's on TV, no plugs on radio nothing. Where as the year before when you guys were headlining, it was getting plugs left, right and centre!
They had Shaggy this year in the lineup, as well as Ali on his own, but I think the headline act was Ziggy Marley (if I'm not wrong). I didn't actually go to this years gigs.
I think the lineup that we had when you guys were part of it was just too good, hence the excellent response, along with the promotion of it. I went to the Sydney And Hunter Valley gigs, and the was just no room to move... I do agree with you and don't think the numbers were there this year at all!

Fingers Crossed however, that we do see you guys return.

I think we will be round your neck of the woods sometime soon. I can't promise at the moment, but i think we will get an offer for the Labour of Love tour. Fingers crossed.

Aww Jimmy, don't say that!!
How about a UB only gig then?
Even when you play Thebarton in Adelaide you get a good crowd when you're on your own don't you?? A lot of people I talk to say they would go if it was you guys on your own.
Come on you've got to come, Carlene and me just for two, would be devastated!!
