Tallinn Estonia πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ͺ

First time here and it’s a quite nice place

Of course it’s half way through their flower 🌷 festival so hell for us hay fever sufferers

Venue is a ruin of a monastery from 1417 not what I expected at all but they sounded great with the acoustics

Flight home tomorrow for 2 days then onto Sweden πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ where I get to catch up with a fellow Brit and great friend of mine at Sweden rock festival

These were taken at Helsinki on the layover

And this is the view from the rooftop bar at the hotel in Tallinn

Festival season

So for the next 6 weeks I will be living in denim shorts, t shirts and safety boots whilst having a radio (walkie talkie) clipped to my arse , no different to the other last few years apart from this time I’m tour manager (why did I agree)Β 

We start our journey beginning in Germany and taking us across Europe (back to the UK) and more ofΒ  Europe till the beginning of July , don’t think there is much of Europe that we aren’t hitting at some point , Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Poland, Austria, UK, France, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal and finish in Spain

Then we get 5 1/2 lovely weeks off to do nothing YAY before the North America support tour starts , I am SO fed up with touring America even more so when it’s places I have been to before or we will be stuck in the middle of nowhere or time off and bored stupid

 

 

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

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
