Saturday, July 8:

We're getting lots of mail pleading with us for "an update" or "some news". Guys, we don't *have* any news to give you. We have no way of knowing how the band are doing or what is going on, and for something this important, we are not going to speculate. When and if the band have something to tell us, they will tell us through an official outlet. That is the only source we are going to accept. Also, don't assume that there's going to be a "the tour is on" announcement. (They never cancelled it so there's really nothing to announce if you think about it.)

As for updates, we did not think it appropriate to add anything to the site, nor did we have the heart to. Please give us a little time. Thanks.

Monday, July 3:

Many people have written to us asking what they can do, what action they can take. And there have been discussions in many forums about gestures that people wish to organize at the dates this summer.

If you would like to participate in a community action, there is a letter being organized by a group of fans that as of this morning had over 2,000 signatures. Please visit this site to see the letter, and you can send email to sheri to have your name added.

However, we want to remind everyone that individual actions are just as important as any large group actions. If you want to take individual action, we urge you to just sit down and write a letter to the band. Send it to the Ten Club snail mail address (which is inside every single album if you don't have it). If you can't deal with snail mail, send email. Don't wait for someone to tell you what you should do, and don't wait until a show this summer (which may not happen) to take action. Light a candle. Say a prayer. Go to church/temple/etc. Volunteer. Make a donation to any worthy cause. Walk by the ocean. There are a million individual actions you can take and a million individual actions adds up to a lot of positive energy in the world. Do something now.

Saturday, July 1:

The last two dates have been cancelled; we amended the news stories from yesterday. In News.
