"Well, here we are - safe and sound in the great UK. Great flight on British Airways...even landed 30 minutes early! Got to our rented gear and met the tour bus and tour bus driver (Duncan - he's a trip, and knows all the ins and outs) like clockwork at 11am, and headed to the first venue. Got a parking ticket in the first 3 minutes we were there...made friends with the cop, and basically don't have to worry about the ticket - i.e. German bus in UK = no ticket. ;-)
We had a great turnout and show last evening in London at The Mean Fiddler, and for operating on 36+ hours with no sleep, felt really rejuvinated by the many fans and new friends we met before and after the show.
Following quick showers we drove through the night to Sheffield, spent a lovely afternoon in a pub, and loaded into The Boardwalk at 3pm this afternoon. Having just returned from the soundcheck we feel GREAT, and it sounds incredible! The club is a beautiful venue and we're looking forward to another powerful show.
Check out some of the pix Jack O'Reilly took from last nights show....Mike/Chad will be posting them soon!
We'll check in again with the next update when possible. Thanks for visiting our tour diary.
All the best,
Chris and the echolyn team"
