That would be a cool birthday trip Wendy!!
I wish they would release the rest of the dates... If Chicago falls in August or Sept, would be a perfect bday pressie for myself! I wanna try to organize a trip to the US around it. So hard not knowing :(
No, I would expect them to be right after the first string of tour dates that have already been announced (which is 19-Jan through 10-Mar). The August dates you see on the calendar are fair/festival shows which are you part of the Blood, Sweat & Beers tour. On the main tour page the dates that are part of Blood, Sweat & Beers are labeled as such.
