The RAin in Spain: The Hobbit DOS Grand European Tour December 2013

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is premiering all over Europe this December

Several Updates - See below

For Richard Armitage fans the most important recent announcement is that Ricardo will be in Madrid for the DOS Premiere on December 11 

We'll be following several of the websites and blogs from our fellow fans in Spain, including ForoArmitage and El Anillo Unico 
Warner Bros Spain and also on Facebook

Oh yes - Luke Evans will be there too 

Richard and Luke will also be at an awards show in Madrid on December 12 

The Premios 40 is a music award show and gala, hopefully will be televised and some lovely RA fans in Spain will record it all for us around the world.  The Hobbit chose well to have two men who can sing and know music to represent DOS at this awards show. Looking forward to all the interviews too. 

Looks like there will also be a "meet and greet" with the guys for some lucky ticket winners:

Here's more thanks to my friend palo about the Kinepolis Erebor theater (remember Google Translate):

The European tour will bring us 
Aidan Turner  
Dean O'Gorman  and Sylvester McCoy 
Zurich on December 10 

No word on why Aidan Turner can't make it to the Zurich premiere after all, but I'm sure it's disappointing for him as well.

 December 9 will be the premiere in Berlin  Richard Armitage is now confirmed as attending
by TheOneRingnet and interview with RA

Update November 28

Thanks to El Anillo Unico more information about the Berlin Premiere. It will be at the Sony Centre – Cinestar of Berlin. The Red Carpet will start at 17:30 Berlin time and in attendance will be:  Peter Jackson, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sylvester McCoy, Mikael Persbrandt, Aidan Turner, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, Adam Brown, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, Ryan Gage and John Bell.  Ed Sheeran will perform I See Fire during the premiere.

Have I missed any of the European Grand Tour so far?  I'll update this post as we find out more.

For some of us in the US, European time is not the best to watch live streaming, since some of us will be at work at the time, but look forward to checking out all the great RA sites for news in December. 

Oh yes, there's the World Premiere in Los Angeles on December 2 to look forward to!  Richard Armitage confirmed as attending, plus many others in the cast. 

I know what I'll be doing Monday night Dec 2

 My Beautiful Dwarves

There is supposed to be a press event November 30 in LA with Richard Armitage and Luke Evans in attendance, but closed to the public. They are reported to be inaugurating The Book of New Zealand exhibit - more in TheOneRingnet:

Hope we get a report from someone in attendance.
