Switzerland ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ

Well here we are (or should I say there I was ) down to one more show in Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Friday and then road life is all done for 2017 !!

Next time on the road is leaving on the evening of my birthday ๐ŸŽ in January so I have 5 weeks off all but one day

Get home Saturday and then TRY to relax whilst the mayhem of Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ descends upon us


Tuesday in Vienna

So after the fiasco of delayed flights , more delayed flights and even more delayed flights finally got to Vienna

Have been there before with touring but in the summer so was lovely to see all the Christmas market etc

So we have two dates left and that’ll be the end of touring for 2017 , off for 4 weeks and then it all starts again

Also means heading home to sort out Christmas apparently all the snow has melted back in the U.K. why it couldn’t have hung around till Xmas then just appeared for the day I don’t know ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

London & grass covered lifts ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

So we had the first of two nights in London (sold out) usually end up staying at the sanctum but this time we ended up in Kensington and this hotel was WEIRD

Glass covered lift

Pyschadelic flashing tablets

And bar codes on ceilings

But the room it’s self was cute

We’re in Cardiff now , back to London in the morning and day off on Thursday

7 shows and 10 days to go

Leeds to Brighton ๐ŸŒŠ

So the U.K. tour rambles on !! Prefer being back in the uk as means there are some places close enough for me to drive to and from home for ๐Ÿš˜

Haven’t been to Leeds for ages so go off on a Starbucks โ˜•๏ธ hunt and promptly get lost

Show went well even though the fans moan about arenas I can understand what they’re saying as I rather have up close and personal than back of the gods so to speak

4 1/2 hours by road down to Brighton hell its cold on the coast lol โ›„๏ธ โ„๏ธ after snow in Leeds it didn’t seem to follow us down the motorway

Weekend off so will get home ๐Ÿ  then 2 London shows Cardiff and Glasgow next week before back across the sea ๐ŸŒŠ

Luxembourg ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡บ to Hamburg ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช

Well that’s part one of the European tour dates done with

Again no time off for proper sight seeing ! Will be weird being back in England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ and sleeping in my own bed ๐Ÿ› for the next few nights as I can drive between venues

Luxembourg ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡บ โฌ†๏ธโฌ†๏ธโฌ†๏ธโฌ†๏ธโฌ†๏ธ

Hamburg ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ชโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ

So it’s time to load up all the gear grab food ๐Ÿ” ๐ŸŸ ๐Ÿฅจ๐ŸŒญ and some ice cold beers ๐Ÿบ, onesie , bunk blanket , and thenon through the night to London

24 hours in Paris ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

So the tour reached the French capital playing at the one venue I’d been dreading after losing my best friend there in an attack 2 years ago

Even had a chat with a sad pigeon and gave it both my pastries as it had lost a foot

There hasn’t been a day like yesterday when I’ve cried that much in decades everything suddenly hit me like a steam train ๐Ÿš‚ just how much I miss him but I came and did what I had to do and said my goodbyes

Today was a day off (Saturday) so what else to do Christmas shopping Parisian style

So we hit the champs elysees with gusto lol ๐Ÿ˜†

Louis Vuitton. Tiffany’s Stopping to see some Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ horses ๐Ÿด as well as lunch at Paul’s followed by a trip up the Eiffel tour

Back to the hotel for a quick change and back out to see the lights So all in all it’s been a great day

Tour rolls on and we got the U.K. on Tuesday

Berlin to London to Brussels ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช

So after a sold out show in Berlin it was straight to bed ๐Ÿ› for an early flight to London the following morning

over the years St Pancras has had really prettt Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ trees ๐ŸŒณ this year yuk looks half dead !!

Nip down the road to UCLH for a CT scan and then lunch with an old friend before back to St Pancras to catch Eurostar to Brussels

Much rather travel by train I can get more done work wise and don’t have a ton of messages when my phone goes on the other end

So we’re leaving for The Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ and then Paris on Friday which is going to be the hardest show of my career
