RMartinez:There's just a "sameness" to Paul's tours and tour schedules that have become quite boring.
Remember when being a Paul fan was fun?
Looking back his touring almost constantly over the years lessened the thrill a little bit with each passing year.
They used to be events: front page news. But they've been commonplace (in some regions) for the best part of a decade.
Yeah, it used to be he was off the road a few years, and there would be an announcement and news coverage would be extensive.
These recent tours seem to make news mainly in the towns where he plays and nowhere else. The Stones make world headlines playing Cuba. U2's The Edge was just in the international news for playing an acoustic set in the Sistine Chapel.
Paul is in some small town letting people propose to each other on his stage. Or giving tattoo autographs.
Why doesn't he go play China?? Instead of the same USA/South America pattern??
To be fair, he did a first and played South Korea. Budokan show was also cool.
