That is not what I said at all.  They did not cancel their tour because 
of a lack of people.  In fact, with the exception of one show in 
Connecticut, there were certainly enough people at the shows for Eric's 
Trip to have a good show.  What I said was that I thought there would be 
MORE people, based on the fact that Eric's Trip have very loyal fans over 
all, and they've never really played in the US.  I was way more 
disappointed in the attendance figures than the band was.

The band's breakup has been a long time coming, and is way more 
complicated than people not coming to shows.
