I am sitting in the front of our Bus next to our Driver Bastien after a hot soup and some bread. We are driving from Hamburg Germany to Utrecht, The Netherlands. I have never been this tired after a show. And I have never been this happy after the stage either.
What ever happened in the Sporthalle in Hamburg was the best we have ever experienced with our gang. There have been moments on the way when I have thought, “ok, this is as good as it can get” but again tonight, all the old records were topped. There was just something magic in the room I can’t understand. Hamburg has always been one of the top cities for us, but now you lovely people took us on a new level. Again.
I was extra nervous today also because our dear friends from My First Band were performing as the second support. I had goose bumps when they rocked on stage and it was super great how you welcomed them and their show. And they deserved every handclap! I bet you will hear from these guys in the future. Their keyboardist Heikki will play instead of “our” Osmo in Brussels.
Thank you all for the presents and stuff Riku and the crew guys brought to us after the show. Special thanx to little 13-year old Fiona for the huge box of chocolates. We ate them all and now we’ll sleep like babies ;)
Tomorrow we’ll have a different night and a smaller crowd in The Netherlands but I bet it will be fun. Actually I have been waiting for the moment we finally get to the “new Sunrise Avenue countries” too. I really must sleep long tonight and to rest my throat to be able to do my job tomorrow. I even had to take some cortisone today to make it through the night. I know it’s not good in the long run.
Anyways…. I know I have done a lot of bad things in my life, but there must have been some good things in between too since I am allowed to experience this kind of feelings with the best guys on the planet.
Thank you all so much. You made these five guys from Finland very happy tonight!
