I'm doing Woolf Music at the weekend so it's going to be hard for me...might have to hope for more dates as hinted.  As others have said, it's a bit disingenuous as he supported Gong playing SHB stuff 10 years ago...and then he did a festival playing 2 sets in 2 days...so it's not exactly new, but, hey...

He says more dates may follow if these are successful. So no more dates to bevadded to this 'tour'. You might have a longish wait...

Not from what I'm hearing, but let's see.  I might be able to make Cambridge, or even Manchester at a pinch.

Hmm, might try to get to London, maybe I'll wait and see if other gigs are added. I'd love to see SHB with Colin (Sabah Habas Mustapha) Bass on, er, bass and Clive Bunker on drums, but Steve using the current Gong lineup is a sound idea, as they are indeed excellent musicians.

And the tour could also be expanded.

ďLet's see how these three dates go before anything else is added.

The only songs I'm really familiar with by Steve Hillage are Electric Gypsies (because it was in a Young Ones episode) and Hurdy Gurdy man. Still, I might go to the Manchester date. Thanks for the heads up.

Just in case anybody who's interested wasn't aware, the tickets have already been on sale for a couple of days via this presale:
