Hannover, Germany...17 June, 2010
A grand turn out in the gym today, road manager Tim Hook, keyboard extraordinaire Guy Fletcher, power house Danny Cummings made a guest appearance, bass master Glenn Worf and yours truly. Sweat poured and heart rates were dangerously highs. We're so healthy.
Driving through Berlin to the airport was an ordeal of traffic and the drive from the airport in Hannover to the venue was an adventure of stalled cars and diversions. We arrived, at last at the TUI Arena, just in time for a sound check before the doors opened. A big hit on tonight's menu was Massaman Curry and rice pudding. A staggering meal that should not have been eaten prior to the the gig.....but was.
It was a grand gig, the band in top form, free and easy and fabulous. The audience was the same.
A runner after the show back to Berlin. I spied an Augustiner Biergarten near our hotel and plan to pursue it tomorrow for lunch. I've been lusting after the world's largest wiener-schnitzel and a draft Ausgustiner beer since arriving here in Germany.
Down to the hotel bar for a couple drinks with Guy and John before turning in.
