During the live stream Simon said that Raj doesn't want to do a live show (and this is taking in him mentioning 2016). I know that sounds weird, but I could understand why not. Last year Simon said that booking the band for the live shows was at least 13 people at $100,000. That's not including venue price, production, labour, costumes, merchandise, dancers, sets, lights. Then all the planning and details no one sees like getting visas and enough time to get all these people to coordinate. I could see a live show eventually, but that sounds like a lot of nothing that would have to be something worth doing.

The only reason I know enough to have figured this out is because the school I go to had an experimental program a few years ago to put together a show of this size as a learning experience.

I don't know if Simon remembers me, but when the project started I asked if I could use Shpongle's music for a school project. (Thank you again BTW) Students had to submit their live show ideas and we were given a budget of $1 million dollars. In the end the student with the best portfolio/idea was offered a scholarship. I won but the program I wanted to study wasn't accredited so they gave me a job and told me to wait until the program was accredited.

I have a scholarship offer to go to school to study costume design and production. If it helps convince anyone to put together a live show, I would GLADLY use my scholarship to make this happen. I would gladly do all the busy work since it would be my homework. I even checked with the Director of the program and even he approves of it as long as I actually do my all my homework and you're willing to give me an internship after my sophomore year.

Simon, it makes me sad that you lost money on Red Rocks. My girlfriend and I had never seen you or Shpongle perform, so we traveled 1000 miles from Cincinnati to see you at Red Rocks. I didn't really know what getting Shpongled was until that night. It's more than just being present at the show. It's a journey that takes you through the full spectrum of human emotions, strips your ego away, and grinds you down to the core of your being. The way you alter sound frequencies to build tension inside your bones, only to release the tension into a wave of bliss is quite remarkable. You could feel it and see it in the crowd. We were all connected. I'll happily pay you 2 bucks per month just for being you. Thank you for all you do.

I hate when logistics get in the way of my good time. I missed u guys at Camp Bisco, the campsite bekoned. Then I worked the night of the NYC Halloween show. Worst mistakes of recent memory. We had a houseful Shpogling all day today bro. Thank you sincerely

It's unlikely , to be honest. Don't forget that we HAD to sell out Red Rocks to only lose $275. And people complain at paying $1.99 .... Tsch!!
