Finally...Wire tour dates!

I feel like I've been talking about this Wire tour forever. But in really nebulous terms like "I don't know when, but there's definitely a Minneapolis date!" or "they have a new I mean...logically they SHOULD tour...." And finally here we have them, real legit tour dates. I'll keep this short, because I've been talking about this tour and their latest album Object 47, for so long that even I am bored. At last! At last, my dreams of seeing Wire--dreams I have carried with me ever since one of my friends lived in a house with a Wire/Sonic Youth tour poster in the bathroom that would taunt me "You will never see Wire! You will neeeeever see Wire! They will never come to the United States again AND YOU MISSED IT when you could've seen them"--those dreams will be fulfilled. Sigh. What an inspiring bathroom.
