Hello Tokyo ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ตย 


Well after a quick layover in Paris made it the land of the rising sun โ˜€๏ธ 

Have stayed at this hotel before and it’s central for everything pretty much like the renaissance at st Pancras in London 




What is there to say when you’ve been here before ??

Didn’t get much time to do a lot Saturday as we had a gig at night but got dragged out on a boat

Which made me feel really sick ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข I don’t do boat travel well at all

View flying over Sydney

view from my room

Two whole days off now before Brisbane so off to see the koalas ๐Ÿจ ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ later this morning then depending on time I think we’re going up to Bondi

They also seemed to think my pancake needs to look like chicken little

Melbourne to Sydney


So that’s another city done with ! Still can’t understand why management never booked dates in Adelaide but it’s down to the good old footfall excuse

Off to Sydney later and then 2 1/2 days off before heading to Brisbane !!

Oh and of course a trip overseas wouldn’t be right without testing the local food – cat food that is so this is all coming back to the UK with me

Day two in New Zealand ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ


After X amount of years in the music industry once in a while you’ll stay at a hotel that goes the extra mile

Sofitel is that hotel – comfy cosy bed to die for amazingly friendly / helpful staff , just a shame we’re not going to be here longer

Day off to recover from the yucky jet lag so off to Hobbiton and The Shires in a bit ! 2 hour drive but you can’t come all the way to Auckland and not go

Gig Wednesday night and then onto melbourne on Thursday , think I’m going to miss New Zealand ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ

Finally arrived – New Zealand ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ


Well what after what has to be the longest journey to get to the start of the tour in years finally touched down in Auckland an hour ago

Left Heathrow at just gone 10pm Saturday night

Emirates certainly is one of the best airlines to fly with when flying alone they really look after you

Arrived in Dubai Sunday morning for a 2 hour layover of course had to buy a camel ๐Ÿซ before 16 hours again with emirates to Auckland landing 1/2 hour early

have to say the blankets provided by emirates and the most comfy cuddly ones I’ve had in ages

On way to hotel now , got couple of days off to explore before the tour starts and then leave for Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ on Thursday

And now the end is near…………


So we have 3 shows of this tour left and then it’s home sweet home

I will be SO pleased to be away from America – don’t get me wrong I love the country etc but when you go to the same place time after time or are stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do , you do start looking for a jacket you can hug yourself in after a while.

So here we are in Indianapolis , I am mentally and physically drained , I just want 24 hours solid sleep with no one telling me we need to leave for the venue, no travelling through the city to the next location just pure sleep !!!

Ofย course once I do get home it’s only for 13 days then off to Australia and New Zealand – I think I may as well just spend my life living out a of a suitcase with revolving doors !!!

Don’t get me wrong I love my job it’s just at times like today when pain is kicking in 100% and the last thing I want to do is be dragged sight seeing , here again tomorrow and then off to Missouri,


Niagara Falls ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ


So had a morning off after getting to Niagara yesterday afternoon haven't been there for years nothing changes lol view from the hotel
falls last night
rainbow bridge

View from the boat 🚣 which I hated and shot from behind the falls which was really weird !!

6 more gigs to go and then home for 2 1/4 weeks
