tour diaryas we're touring we'll update our tour diary with reports from the road.
We just got back from a wonderful trip to Hasselt in Belgium and Cork in Ireland. Ooooo, it was a nice one!
But let us start from the beginning. Lets start in Belgium…
After a 13 hour trip to Hasselt, we went out for some sushi. With the sushi I decided to have a Duvel. For those of you who don’t know what a Duvel is, it’s a Belgium beer which contains a serious amount of alcohol. I think it’s like 8,5% or something ridiculous. Well…after two of those you get into this very psychedelic state of drunkenness. And that happened to me on that wonderful Tuesday evening…
Waking up the day after was hard but very well worth it…so here is a reminder to you all! Do not drink more than two Duvel at a time…
Sólrún and Hildur could not play the Hasselt show, so we got our very good friend of ours, called Sóley, to come and help us out. And man! She nailed it to the tree! She is hereby our supersub!…
And the show was fantastic. Well, in our opinion it was. And before us played the beautiful Susanne and the wonderful Silje Nes, both from Norway and kicking…Thank you very much Hasselt!
We flew from Brussels at way to early in the morning to Dublin the day after. With an aviation-company that we strongly recommend you do not fly with. The name of the company goes a little bit like this: Ry&$air. Our experience prior to the flight at the check-in and in the plane was terrible…but we survived and came to Cork at about 2 o’clock in the afternoon, where our main man Luke greeted us with his nice big smile…
We actually stayed in Cork in for 5 days. And did some good stuff there!
We got some work done.
We had some good food.
We had some Guinnes, Murphys, Beamish and Baileys.
We got to play the only full gamelan set in Ireland.
We even managed to play two shows, one secret show at the Cypress Avenue and one in the Cork Opera House.
Both shows were great. The show in the opera house was intense. It was one of the few shows all six of us have played together this year, which added to the brilliance of the gig. And the crowd wasn’t to bad either (and I very much appreciate that you could handle all my talking…)
A few people get a special mention after this trip: Laurent, Sóley and all the staff at the Cultuurcentrum and at the Cork Opera House. And miss Mary Hickson, Luke, Molly and Sammy, you get a very special mention for being there for us, always…
And now comes the end of the longest tourblog in the history of mankind!
Love from Maggi and the rest of the gang!
