I am at the airport after a very rushed bus trip. IT was a bit stressed as the bus we take to Coimbra, where we have to switch, was running late and arrived 1min before the bus to Lisboa. If we missed that bus, Sue would miss her flight, as the next bus was not for 2-3hrs. We would have had to try to get the train. Anyway, we barely made it. Sue made her flight and I have 4 more hours to sit here at the airport and wait. I will have a beer around 16. It is beer o clock in Denmark, where I am heading at that time.

I felt if was an amazing concert with great dynamics. Wow. I had so much fun and the people screamed so much at the end. I was very humbled. This is what makes life worth living for, to play music for people like this and we don’t even have any songs!! Awesome night… Sadly, only 22 mins of the 2nd set got recorded but luckily, another guy, Holger, recorded the whole show and will give it to me in Berlin! IT is his recording below.

It was a long day, as we did not arrive at the Fontaine Palace in Liepäja, Latvia until after 18. What an amazing music complex with a small bar and stage downstairs and one of the coolest venues you could image upstairs. Super high ceilings all wood on the floors, ceiling and the biggest stage besides Roskilde Festival I have every played. Great sound. The sound guy, Forest was the best we had on the tour and super helpful with everything including setting up the hard disc recorder.
Donald, Tim, Jonathan and I went to a public sauna for an hour. IT cost 8€ and was amazing. Wow.. I needed that. The lake was like 6C so it was fucking cold when you went in… I only did the lake once but went into the sauna 3x. We also had a beer. I was so relaxed both physically and mentally.
We deliver the goods every night and the musicians are fucking world class so people get a master class in drumming, bass playing violin, guitar solos. A bit sad to call it a day from touring but that is where we are at in reality. We are just not a popular band. We just have to live with that. We have a lot of multitracks from this tour to share with the fans.
