London, England #6...4 June, 2010
I met with a friend early this morning and we went down to Denmark Street in Soho. Denmark only runs for a very short block and is where all the music stores and vintage guitar shoppes in London are located. Some wonderful guitars that I enjoyed looking at and playing, but am not in a buying mood right now. Stopped in at the wonderful Fopp Record Store and found a copy of the album by Elbow that I mentioned a few postings ago, The Seldom Seen Kid. Can't wait to sink into that one. We had lunch then back to the hotel.
It was a fitting final show at the Albert. As with our previous engagements we've come to know her like the back of our hand and feel very at home there. It was our sixth sold out night, not an empty seat in the galleries, boxes, choir or on the floor. As noted all week, the London audiences have been extraordinary and tonight was no exception, a thunderous response. As we were playing the final song of the evening I was already beginning to miss this amazing venue and am looking forward to when we return next.
And so...that is the U.K. tour completed. We'll have a day off tomorrow then it's on to the European leg beginning Sunday in Antwerp.
