Tour Diary

The day after the Other Tour before. 2017.

December 31, 2017 When Paris was done, I sat in my back stage room, blinking. This then was it. There it was, gone. 59 gigs met. How you could bare that there were not 60? Some good few asked. I don’t mind odd numbers. Are you sure about this, Mo?[…]

France. Paris. Alhambra. Dec 20th.

December 21, 2017 We left the hotel in Zurich at 10 and headed to the airport and our flight to Paris. David was flying back to London at a similar time so we travelled there together. We said our goodbyes and headed for our respective gates. On my own wandering,[…]

Switzerland. Zurich. X-tra. Dec 19th.

December 20, 2017 An easy start. 12 O’Clock hook up with Vinny No-Show. Calling him after 15 mins I have patently just woken him up. Sheeeeet! He exclaims. Be down in three! He blurts. Not quite but it was a suitably abashed Vin that met me there some 15 mins[…]

Italy. Milan. Fabrique. 17th Dec.

December 20, 2017 I had the worst night last night. Couldn’t sleep before 2 and was awake again at 4:30am and that was it. My lot. I tried, but my alarm is set for 6am and I’m tired and anxious I will oversleep and miss my 8:30am flight to Italy,[…]

Vienna. Simm City. 16th Dec.

December 17, 2017 We left our hotel in Frankfurt soon after 9am and landed in Vienna around 1:30 in the afternoon. We are to stay at the airport hotel as we have to get the 8:40am flight to Milan tomorrow morning. I have not slept well again and think to[…]

Germany. Karlsruhe. Substage. 15th Dec.

December 16, 2017 Following as it did, a day off, there was no mad rush. I didn’t leave my room beyond going to the hotel breakfast lounge. We are situated in a residential area and there is not time, neither energy, to wander far. We left for our hour and[…]

Germany. Aschaffenburg. Colos Saal. Dec 12th.

December 14, 2017 I woke unreasonably early, 5, and immediately my head was racing around empty rooms. I hadn’t slept before 1am and I think I was worried I’d sleep through my 8 o’clock alarm. We had a train to catch, and I was overtired. As it is I’m a[…]

Hamburg. Gruenspan. Dec 12th.

December 13, 2017 It was a bad tempered train we boarded this morning. Everyone seemed out of sorts. Pushing and mild panic. Coats were thick and necks wrapped tight. Coffee? Yes please. White, no sugar. Sorry. We only have black coffee. Only black coffee? Yes. You have no milk? Yes,[…]

Berlin. Huxley Neue Welt. Dec 11th.

December 12, 2017 10th Dec. It was a day off, albeit one that was for travel. We left Cologne on the 11:49am train for Berlin, and got to our hotel some few minutes before 5pm. I could see we were in the vicinity of a Christmas market, so dumped my[…]

Germany. Cologne – Kantine. 9th Dec.

December 10, 2017 Vinny and I headed for the central train station in Amsterdam to catch our train for Cologne. We stared a bit like half-wits when no train of that destination came forward and named itself. In English. After standing slack-jawed for a bit, we were enlightened by a[…]
