GROWING UP GREEN! Wake up! Wake up! Grab your passport! Europe calling!

Last week, we headed out on a 7 week European/UK tour. We flew Condor Airlines for the first time and it was pretty cool, actually. Frankfort, Germany was the epicenter of our meeting up with the band and crew. We piled in the bus and took off for Poland’s Mystic Festival.

The band did a meet and greet signing in the afternoon and then ripped the horizon a new a@s with a stunning setlist of old and new tracks from The Ritual!

Leipzig, Germany was up to bat next! Jet lag setting in with everyone made the days long and our lead boots heavier and heavier. The weather is the hottest since 1914 and no venues have AC. Europe was always somewhat cooler and the buildings old so AC is a rare delicacy. This combination made everyone slightly low on energy. The packed Hellraizer Club gave us a second wind though!!!

Auschaffenberg, an hour from Frankfort was next on our stampede. We have been at the Colos-Saal several times and we know what to expect! Rabid German Tribe members, good catering and no bus parking. All cool because the fans give us what we want! The dressing room is especially memorable since our son, Igor, celebrated two birthdays here and I had one also.

Tomorrow is France, with the French Tribe and that delicious French cuisine! See you there! We have only just begun!

Class dismissed.......
