Sure you do. You wouldn’t spend as much time as you do on our Web site if you didn’t love tour dates. Day after day, week after week, year after year, it’s people like you who hit this URL 500 to 1000 times per day looking up new schedules for artists like Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Wynton Marsalis, and updates for bands like Sonic Youth, Wilco and Manic Street Preachers. Yeah, tour dates are cool.

And if we know our users (and we should, considering how much money we throw at audience research, surveilance and wiretaps), we know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Gee, Pollstar. Looking up all these dates on my computer is oh, so fab. But it’s a bit of a drag being tethered to the Internet. Isn’t there some way I can take the tour dates with me and look them up even if I can’t connect to the Net? Is that something you could do in the future?”

Dream and thirst no more. The future is here.

Presenting the PollPod, a personal tour-date reader that connects to your computer and downloads every current date from our database so you can access your favorite schedules no matter where you might be or what you may be doing. No matter if you’re on the road, meeting with your proctologist or paying your last respects at a funeral, with the PollPod, you’re never more than a click away from dates for Ashlee Simpson, Andre Rieu and Dillinger Escape Plan.

Of course, tour dates take up way more storage space than a song or a video. In fact, a single tour date, such as Sum 41 playing in Montreal on January 14, weighs in at about 75 megs. That’s why we built the PollPod with 100 percent, made-in-America iron, and wrapped it in a stainless steel case guaranteed to survive impacts of up to 100 miles per hour. There ain’t nothing that can stand in the way of this baby!

But wait, there’s more.

Designed for the tour date lover on the go, the PollPod’s 50 pound rectangular frame means that it can be worn just like a backpack, and its accompanying viewer is based on the very best night vision goggle technology and straps firmly to your face, meaning you can look up your favorite dates for Sting or Motley Crue while driving, swimming or even while you partake in the most “intimate” of moments.

Buy the gadget that’s sweeping the nation! You won’t find it at Amazon, and the clerks at Best Buy and Circuit City will act like they don’t know what you’re talking about, for the PollPod is available only through And for those of you who think the standard PollPod isn’t big enough for all your tour date needs, be sure to ask about our 175 pound model, with skip protection, digital EQ and impact-resistant bumpers built right into the unit.
