Missing Vegas

I really never thought I'd say this but tonight I've been really missing Las Vegas. On the whole I think I'm missing all my friends whom I really only get to see when I'm in Vegas at the GTS.

Roll on March 2006 I guess!

God knows what I'm going to do in 2007 though as apart from GTS it looks like another Games Expo is taking place the following week in Vegas! Hmm... two weeks working in Vegas might be pushing it a bit. Although I think I'd have a mighty load of fun if everyone else stays too!!!!

Mind you it'd kill my liver and lungs.

Bauhaus Reform for new album and World Tour

I'm one of the lucky ones that actually aught Bauhaus live in concert. Admittedly only a few years ago when they did a limited 'reunion' tour and not first time round at their height.

Anyway, Pete Murphy has said "I've actually been working on reforming the band for the last year. It's come to the point now what we are going to tour here in the winter and do a world tour and an album."

This will be the first new Bauhaus since 1983! Sort of excited over here in N3 at the moment :D

Thanks to mickmercer for the heads up and the BBC for a very brief article
