Braunschweig, Leipzig, Rostock (Germany)
Nice. Very nice!!!
I’m laying on my Hotel Bed her in Hamburg, Germany and my nose is running a bit but I don’t feel sick at all. Maybe this will go away with good sleep tonight. I have had this weak feeling all the first three tour days, but luckily the feeling on stage has been great. After two and a half months break, we continued our tour again last Friday and it has been just amazing!!!
In Braunschweig on Friday we had a full-hassle-day with the crew guys. A lot of new arrangements to the new songs had to be rehearsed on stage. And we also needed to do that together with the sound guys and Timo(lightning operator) to make them aware of the new details. We also had to give some time on stage for our support Jim Kroft band, since it was also the first show with this setup for them. They seem like nice guys.
Even the first show in Braunschweig was amazing. Usually the 1st and the 3rd show on the tour are very challenging. On the first night you are still “on holiday” and you just overdo the things. Happens to everyone, I guess. The second show always goes better as your system realizes the tour has started. The third show is always the great challenge. Last night before the show we decided with the guys that we’ll break the curse this time and with your help, we did. Was super fun!
All three evenings have been so great with you all and we can’t wait to continue the journey tomorrow in Hamburg. The day tomorrow is very special also because our friends from My First Band from Finland will play as the first band of the evening. I hope they play my favorite song “1 2 3 4 Fight For The Money”. Make sure you arrive in time tomorrow so you don’t miss them. The boys must be freaking excited ;)
Riku is lying next to me in his bed editing some videos we have recorded during the first days and I hope we can see some tour TV episodes soon.
I will close my eyes now for a while and before the dinner we have together with the crew and staff; I will go shopping in the city a bit. I hope the city of Hamburg is not as messed up with the crazy Carnival’s “Great Monday” as Cologne is, for example. I don’t get the costume tradition… I like the October Fest more. Mostly because of the girls and their national outfits.
Thank you all for the very great tour start and see you again tomorrow in Hamburg.
PS: I just love the Design Hotels hotel chain! Check them out where ever you go!
PPS: Our favorite ice hockey team Helsinki IFK have won 9 games in a row now. Tomorrow they have a chance to extend the trend again. Keep your fingers crossed. My guess for the final result is Saipa-HIFK 1-4 in case someone wants to make bets online ;) One of our key players has been our new German goalkeeper Mr. Dennis “Dena” Endras.
