Rumours have been bubbling away for months that the series is putting the band back together for a world-wide reunion tour. I may have been the one spreading those rumours.

Posted by Michael Kazich on August 29, 2014

We want you to come up with your best estimation. The correct, or closest, answers will be entered into a draw and the winner will receive a free copy!
