Singapore Changi airport ✈️ πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ™€

Wow !! They certainly know how to decorate for Xmas

Made it here in one piece for a quick layover and first stop was Hello Kitty Orchid Garden for coffee β˜•οΈ WOW so cute

Then it was a case of waiting for the flight to Melbourne

The bar has been set let’s see how Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί out does it

Australia here we come

“And now the end is near and so we face the final curtain “

Final 4 dates for 2018 with all the travel across Europe and America so 3 weeks before Christmas πŸŽ„ management decide to send us to new festivals in Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Gonna be a long day as layover in Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ so with the time difference it’ll be Tuesday before I actually get to sleep in a bed !

Still when I’m given pineapple and watermelon Bellini I can’t grumble

Moscow πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί

Well Saturday was not only our final day in Russia but day off as well so there was shopping to be done , a ride on the metro , visit to st basils cathedral , more shopping and dinner for band and crew

Started off at Gum mall which is my favourite one and where I always head for fab shops gorgeous Xmas decorations as always

From there to the cathedral for lunch and then back to the hotel to drop the shopping

Transport for London could learn a thing or two from the way the carriages are decorated on the metro plus the stations are so clean and tidy dinner at nobu and pit stop at an English pub before back to st basils cathedral to see it all lit up

View from the hotel of the Kremlin by day and night

Few more random Christmas decorations

Onto the Ukraine tomorrow and then home on Monday

Rostov and Saint Petersburg πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί

Sometimes you think to yourself jeez would be nice not to have a tour in the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ so we end up in russia and literally in the middle of nowhere

Rostov not a lot to see or do so not much to report

Saint Petersburg Wednesday was a day off so wonder round a mall and then got dragged to the winter palace

By the time I got back to the hotel aching wasn’t the word was meant to be a out with the band and crew night but I just couldn’t face it

Thursday here as well (show day) then onto Moscow so I should be a bit happier as love the city

Russia πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί

So for the penultimate tour management decided that Russia πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί would be an idea ooh good we thought till we realised that it would take some of us 48 hours travelling , 2 six hour layovers or in my case leaving home at 2.30 Sunday afternoon and getting to the hotel at 4.30am local time Monday morning oh not forgetting the layover in Istanbul

And for all that there’s no bloody snow ⛄️ not one snowflake ❄️

Southern Russia home of erm nothing well power cuts as we discovered a few hours ahead of the first show

I take forever to adjust to being ahead when travelling lordy only knows what I’ll be like then in December in Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί and per usual the 🏨 hotel is a bit of ok

So we head on somewhere else tomorrow before getting to Moscow end of the week

There better be some bloody snow ⛄️ there

Band management 🎡 πŸŽΆ

Working for a band that is high up the ladder when we have a support band we make them feel like they are the same level we involve them their crew etc etc

Then there are the times we are asked to support someone , The Osbourne Management team are a bunch of amateurs

Start of the tour was fine then the San Francisco show got cancelled , of course the remaining 3 shows are going ahead

Fast forward 2 days oh actually the San Diego and Hollywood Bowl shows are being rescheduled but you won’t be doing them , at this point we all said the same thing just cancel the Vegas show and stop having us hang around like spare parts

What happens Thursday ???!!!? Vegas show cancelled and all rescheduled dates cancelled

So why not consider the crews etc and say that on the Tuesday

No it’s all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

One thing is for certain if I have the misfortune of the guys being added to the same line up as Osbourne ANYWHERE

Just glad I’m off for 4 weeks and then go back to headline shows
