Live finish rehearsal sessions for upcoming US tour
Live have been spending the past 2 days rehearsing new and old songs for their upcoming tour of the United States, set to kick-off this Friday in Jackson, Mississippi. Chad Taylor wrote an update about these rehearsal sessions on his My Space blog today, which I have posted below. [Credit: Jacob/"J.Sax" of Ohio] • posted may 3rd, 2006

"After two very long days of rehearsing we have worked up some really, really fun material for the May/US dates. I'm betting many of you will be thrilled with the selections. I would tell you what we worked on but that would spoil the surprise of those lucky few who got tickets....sorry if you don't have one. Can you believe it's been five years since we launched a word tour. I don't count anything shorter than a 6 month run, so that means we haven't done the US like this since the Live/Counting Crows run after Distance. Fuck! With more than 35 songs in the current batch were more than ready for some extra long shows for the fans who show us the most love. SFBM, AWAKE, BOP, V, TDTH, SS, TC and MJ all represented! See you soon or it could be another five years..."
