I will be out of town until Monday night, September 19
Posted Fri, Sep 16, 2005 - 7:06am ET | Tour
I have a trip planned for Cedar Point this weekend, and therefore updates to The Dent may be sporadic until Monday night, September 19, 2005. Unfortunately, Tori also winds down her amazing Summer Of Sin tour this Friday and Saturday night in Phoenix and Los Angeles. Despite the fact that my access to the net will be limited, I have made arrangements to have the last two set lists of the Summer Of Sin tour posted to The Dent as soon as possible. (This could occur shortly after the show ends, or could be a few hours later.) While you can still email me a review of those last shows, it may be until the later part of the weekend before I am able to upload them to The Dent. You can still post your reviews of the shows on The Dent's Summer Of Sin Tour Forum, and I urge you to do so. Thanks for your understanding.
