Is New Mexico far from Arizona? If so, excuse my ignorance!
I have to say, I'm sort of glad I live in Ireland (well, I know bands rarely come here) but the UK is only a flight away (and usually fairly cheap too) so I can just hop on a plane.
No worries! Phoenix AZ is about a 7-hour drive from where I am, which could be do-able (I go to Denver Colorado for shows a lot which is approx the same distance) but the Fat tour date in AZ is during my final exams. I just found out one of their Colorado dates is on my 21st birthday which would be soooo fun, but it's too short notice now and I have family coming into town oh well. The best thing about bands on Fat is they tour a lot, at least.
