Last week, we had an interview with Nicholas Pearson of We Are Saviour, when he mentioned that he had "bits and pieces" of vocals and music that he could potentially put together to create a song if he had his bandmates permission.
Well now, he has permission.
"Hannah was right on board for it, Charlie was a little more reluctant - he asked for 50% of the profits from the song, but if that means we can give the fans a final goodbye, then he can have any amount of money he wants. This really isn't about money, now."
He also announced that the band would be embarking on a mini-tour.
"We all just decided to put away our differences so that we could do a mini-tour; a final goodbye to the fans." The tour will include 11 dates and will be spanned out over both United States and Canada (4 in U.S., 7 in Canada) over the course of 1 month.
Some fans expressed disapproval of the locations of the dates, saying that they felt that the band would only be visiting "major" locations and are not going to smaller areas, such as central and Northern United States and Western and Northern Canada. Pearson defended the choice of the dates, saying, "It is just a mini-tour, we can't visit everyone, unfortunately," he said in an interview, "We're offering very cheap tickets so that people can focus on their fares for transportation." Tickets for most stops are $4/person. Children between the ages of 4 and 12 and senior citizens 60+ will get in for half price ($2/person), while children under the age of 4 are allowed free access. Group tickets are also available; if 3 people come in a group then the 4th person in the group will be allowed in free, as long as the 4 people are between the ages of 12 and 60.
The following are the tour dates.
May 21, 2012 - Sacramento, California
May 25, 2012 - Austin, Texas
May 30, 2012 - Orlando, Florida
June 3, 2012 - Albany, New York
June 6, 2012 - Fredericton, New Brunswick
June 8, 2012 - St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
June 11, 2012 - Montreal, Quebec
June 13, 2012 - Toronto, Ontario
June 15, 2012 - Thunder Bay, Ontario
June 18, 2012 - Regina, Saskatchewan
June 21, 2012 - Vancouver, British Columbia
Also, there will be no announced venues for the stops. The day before the stop, a tweet will be posted on We Are Saviour's twitter account with a hint as to where the concert is being held. Tweeters will then be able to tweet the band the answer, and the band will private message them if their guess is correct. If it is not correct, the band will private message the tweeter another, easier hint as to the location of the concert. People without twitter will be able to text WEARESAVIOUR to a number (which will be announced a week before the date via We Are Saviour's website) and fans will then receive a text from the band giving them a hint to the location of the concert. People without twitter or SMS-sending cell phones will need to wait until 1 hour before the concert begins when the band will reveal the location of the concert on Twitter and on the local news of the location of the concert.
