Chances are this has been discussed before, just thought i'd bring it up. Could there be some sort of info on a band page for upcoming live shows? It shouldn't be too hard to do (pardon my ignorance if it is really difficult) and it'd be a great way to find out if a band is coming to your city or whatever, especcially if information is hard to find on a band..

Better use forums for this or check band website

that's retarded, and not quite true. It's a place for finding about info on bands. That includes finding out where they play.

true, I hadn't thought of that. However, I can't see it causing that much more trouble. Perhaps adding in Live Dates could be a veteran privilege.

Regardless, it's not something I'm fully passionate about, just throwing out an idea, that's all.

Veteran privilege or not, bands change their dates, cancel their shows.

Not on the site itself, but considering the forums get more and more users as the site grows, maybe a sub-forum for posting tour dates/show dates would be useful at one point in the future.

Don't know about you, but for me knowing the tour dates of my favorite bands throughout the world is completely useless. What I need to know is which bands are playing by my city/region/country, and then I decide if there's anything worth seeing.

Isn't there a local website for you to be informed?
