Just arrived in Hong Kong. A few hours stopover then on to New York. It's only just starting to sink in... we're finally touring the US! Yeah baby.
This is Tamara. Kay threw his drumsticks into the audience last night & she caught 'em. Problem was, I called it one song too early so he needed them back. She pushed her way to the front of the crowd (not easy at a festival) & saved the day. These guys had been waiting 2 years to see us live & demonstrated some excellent stickering skills too.
So… why did we only have one pair of drumsticks? Here are the bizarre series of fails we had this weekend:
- Kay put his cymbal & drumstick bag on top of the car after our Munich show on Friday. We drove off without them. He may or may not have been intoxicated when he did it.
- Adil broke a string in the most epic part of his bass solo last night.
- We couldn't start the tour van after last night's show because we left the lights on.
- Using google maps to walk to the hotel is great if you've got reception. If not, you end up on a 2 hour scenic tour at 3 in the morning.
You can't help but laugh. The shows were great & the crowds were rockin'. An awesome & very memorable weekend.
My phone makes it through 2 years of touring Europe in an oversized sardine can on wheels... and then I go and lose it at Sydney airport! Being quite distressed, I decided to eat some Chinese food (as you do). Found this inside a fortune cookie and 30 minutes later my phone was handed in to lost property. Ha.
Now we're boarding a plane for our next international adventure in Europe & the States. Fingers crossed, we're taking this little cookie's fortune with us. See you on the road!
