It feels so good to be back on tour again. The summer was filled with cool festivals and short trips for gigs all over Europe but we haven’t done a full tour since our UK tour in May. We’re back to the way we started out in Ireland 5 years ago for this tour. Just the 7 of us in our van – the 4 band members, Jim (manager), Gav (our recently married sound engineer) and Johnny (keys and techie) and if the first gig is an indicator of how this tour is going to go, then it’s gonna be a good one!
Abart in Zurich on Tuesday was amazing. To fill out such an historic venue is means loads to us. We looked on the wall and some of the bands that have graced that stage included Muse, Supergrass, and Ash. Danny’s flight was delayed and he only just made the show. Thankfully it all worked out in the end and was a great night. Tonight we are in Bonn for Rockpalast which is an amazing and historic German TV show that has featured such amazing artists as Rory Gallagher, Van Morrison and Radiohead. Seems like we’re in good company on this tour!
