Frankfurt, Germany...7 June, 2010
The great thing about an after show runner and flight to the city we play the following day is a relaxed day of the show. So it was having arrived last night in Frankfurt. Slept in 'til 9:30, coffee in the room then down to the gym followed by sun at the pool.
Our first German date was memorable. The usual venue here in Frankfurt, Festhalle was a total sell out of close to 8,000. If tonight's audience is any indication the shows in Germany are going to be incredible. A perfect example of performer/audience connection, both feeding off the other. MK and Co. in stellar form and the roar of appreciation was deafening. Festhalle, which can be very echoey, was well in control tonight thanks to ace front of house sound man Dave Dixon. Another factor is how quietly we play on stage which helps Dave with the control and clarity of the house sound. Well done all.
Back to the hotel for drinks and loads of laughs. A good night to be alive in Frankfurt.
