Re: Haken Fall 2017 US Tour Dates

True......as that would never happen to me here with any band........ I was saving Visions for Prog Power as that is a special show for me........ Todd says they are not doing the Visions thing on that part of the tour, so it looks like Haken twice in a weeks for me !!-!!!!-

Excellent vendor just like that place out in NJ. They run a handful of $5 overstock CD's each week on Wednesdays, but often pull titles from the list once they move a few.
