Berlin, Germany...18 June, 2010
A few blocks from our hotel in Berlin is an Augustiner Restaurant serving traditional German food and the miraculous Augustiner-Brau on tap. The beer is great in the bottle and better on draft and better yet when accompanying a very large Wiener Schnitzel and even better still before noon sitting at an outside table. It was a dream meal followed by a walk around the city with Mike. A perfect day, clear blue skies and felt like 80 degrees. We stopped for a coffee and sat outside on the square taking in the day and marveling at just how lucky we are.
Tonight's gig was the O2 World Arena and it was packed with close to 11,000 Berliners who were on their feet through the last several songs. A wonderful crowd and it's hard to believe, but this band just gets better every night, we have loads of fun playing and find new things to play every show. It's the way music should be made but seldom is.
A runner back to the hotel, bypassing the bar in lieu of bed.
