It sounds very much like a "no" to me too. In other words, although
he is interested, he's not keen enough to make a commitment at this

So it means "no", but not in the sense of "no I don't fancy it" but
more like "if you need to get the tickets now, then don't get one for
me; but if, come April, I'm still at a loose end, and tickets are
still available, I may well join you".

Well, yes, that's how we've left it. I didn't get a ticket for him but
he'll come if tickets are still available and he can make it. The point I
don't understand about it all though is that we're very big fans of Paul
Rodgers and would normally crawl over broken glass to get a ticket. 6 of
us (7 including myself) have bought tickets, 3 others would do but already
know they can't make it due to other committments and he just doesn't

"Broken glass", eh? Then why didn't the 3 others unmake their commitments?
Maybe they've grown out of the phase during which that kind of stuff
appeals to them.

I've never heard of this opera singer either. I certainly wouldn't
fancy a whole evening of listening to one person sing highlights, I'd
rather see a whole opera.

I'm sure there should have been a smiley in there because Paul Rodgers is
far from an opera singer, as you'd know if you googled his name. Paul
Rodgers was frontman of the legendary Free, Bad Company and now Queen -
and his tour will include hits from all three era's.

It's a disgrace what they let into opera houses these days.
Wild horses, wouldn't be seen dead, etc.
