River cruise 🚒 Chicago

May 17th 2018


Back on the road again & time off in Chicago

So back to the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ for 5 days , Chicago as the base and last night we were in Fort Wayne which means middle of nowhere

So today has been half a day off so I’ve spent some me time in Chicago

Ending on the river cruise 🚒

Every time I end up in the Windy City I always have to go on the river this is because it was one of the last things I did with my friend Nick Alexander who was killed in the bataclan attacks

Onto another headline show tomorrow (we get there tonight) then in Columbus on Saturday before heading home 🏠

Royal Wedding aka Royal Pantomime

So as the news arrived at 8pm that “Meagain”‘s father isn’t going to be walking her down the aisle

I don’t blame him , bet he can see what the fake , controlling woman is planning , all the attention on her when more people don’t like her than say they do , well apart from someone who posts on Metro Facebook page called Seb Jeffries who practically has a melt down when he reads comments that aren’t singing their praises seems he has a little crush on Harry lol

As I have said from Day 1 when she appeared hanging onto him like a limpit with shoes that were too big , if Harry is so “down with the commoners” he should renounce his title , and clear off to Outer Mongolia to live with her there

They say she has all this money of her own , yeah really then why allow him to pay Β£100,000 for her wedding dress when she should be paying for it if her mother can’t afford it.

She’s desperate for kids – so why not have one with previous partners ????

And as for her walkabouts , if she’s not posing for selfies or signing autographs then she is standing tugging his jacket mouthing something which a lip reader saw as “I’m bored I’m bored”

Sweetie go back to wherever you came from and rejoin some crap series that you couldn’t act for toffee in

Goldfish IQ will have a meltdown if she did but will soon be picking up some airhead elsewhere .

IF it does go ahead I’ll be glad to be out the country and not have to witness any of it

They had the “ugly sisters” at Kate & William’s wedding – maybe this time we’ll get the full pack ugly sisters, wicked stepmother, pantomime dame , and of course Anne Boleyn was beheaded on 19th May , maybe one of the Royals can hire a “Queen of Hearts” costume and stand screaming at Meagain OFF WITH HER HEAD !!!!

Would make my year to see her do a runaway bride – but she has her hands too deep in the honey pot to do that

Jack Daniels distillery πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ so it must be Thursday

Morning off so what to do nothing but head off to the distillery

Have been here before but last time it was in the fall so better to see some shade and sunshine around the place

Nothing new there as you come to expect but as I’ve gotten older I can take it or leave it when it comes to drinking the stuff

Off to North Carolina next for another festival , then onto Virginia and then home which is the best part

Wednesday in Nashville πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

So it’s another beautiful hotel here in Tennessee this festival run really is flying by , after headline show tonight there’s just 2 more festivals and then I’m home for 10 days

The union station hotel reminds me outside a little bit of the house in the movie πŸŽ₯ CLUE wouldn’t minded for tim curry having been there but a girl can dream !

Weather is still warm β˜€οΈ without being too hot be interesting to see what summer in Europe and the U.K. have in store weather wise

World of Coca Cola πŸ₯€ πŸ₯€

So morning off in Atlanta πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ what to do , last time I was here was a visit to the puppetry museum so fancied something a bit different

Had been there before but few years ago there was a few new things but the polar bear was still walking around waving πŸ‘‹πŸ» like an idiot

Show time tonight then onto Tennessee in the morning which also means a visit to the distillery in Lynchburg for my JD fix πŸ₯ƒ πŸ₯ƒ

Time off in Miami !!!

So Miami has won my heart πŸ’“

When you get a private beach like this from the hotel there’s nothing to do but relax

Was just the time off I need – been able to relax and just chill out , clear my head before moving onto Georgia later today

A career like this would be near impossible to do with kids back home the cats 🐈 cause enough worry at times

Festivals are going well really can’t accept stone temple pilots with an X factor muppet as the lead singer

Bit of course ozzy ruled the evening

And of course Corey is being amazing with the fans.

Oh well back to my overdosing on melon πŸ‰

Daytona Beach πŸ–

So we’ve moved onto Miami , didn’t get to do much in Daytona as there’s not a lot to do if that makes sense

Did have a good night at the Tiki bar as one of the usual band dinners , very impressed with the nemo 🐟 drinks

Day off tomorrow and I’m planning on doing zero with the band – there’s something that is leaving a bad atmosphere behind the scenes that I won’t go into details on here ,

Will be in Miami till late Monday afternoon then off to Georgia – as much as I love my job I am getting so fed up of touring the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ all the bloody time

On the road again πŸ₯ 🎸 πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ€ 🎀 🎡 🚌 πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ

So after a few months of r and r we’re back on the road for 10 days

Smooth flight ✈️ over from the U.K. to the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ well Atlanta !! Layover and then onto Daytona beach

All the times I’ve flown into or from Atlanta I’ve never worked out what this is on the ceiling

But the little toilet for any furries 🐢 or cat 🐱 that are flying internal was cute toilet 🚽 you lock the door like you would with a human toilet 🚽 and sort your furry person out

Managed to get a decent 9 1/2 hours sleep 😴 obviously needed it but today I’ve felt more than drained than I usually do also feel stressed for some reason so just had a look round the mall

And then walked down to the Main Street and beach where I am now

Band dinner πŸ₯˜ tonight , then we have our first festival of the year tomorrow in Jacksonville 🎡 then onto Miami on Sunday for another festival music 🎢 in Sunrise Florida and some time off – never been to Miami so looking forward to a quickexplore
