Earlier today (WAY earlier), something happened on facebook that suddenly gave rise to hope for many an Albertan. An announcement. A rumour? The prospect that if there is enough interest from fans of the Smalls, that the band is considering a reunion tour.
You read that right my friends.
I’m still waiting for confirmation from Terry Johnson on the validity of this prospect but seeing as he has (presumably) posted updates on the Smalls’ facebook page numerous times in the past day (plus a couple more from back in April and February) asking for video footage and photos, there could be something to this. The last update read as follows;
“Who’s got footage from any smalls show ever? I am trying to get as much together as possible for a compilation dvd. Anyone interested in buying that type of thing? What about a reunion tour? Do you guys think we could get a few people out to see us? Let’s hear what you think…
The update has been ‘liked’ and commented on dozens of times in mere hours and all have been favourable. Fans not only from Alberta but from across Canada and even as far away as Australia are ITCHING to see this band featuring Johnson, Michael Caldwell, Corb Lund and Dug Bevans. I’ve put the word out to see if I can obtain some sort of confirmation on whether this is a serious call out for fans to convince the band to reunite and tour. In the meantime, if you have any video footage from past Smalls shows, visit the Smalls’ facebook page for details on where to send it.
All I have to say is, please let this be true!
