Amsterdam, Netherlands Mar 30, 2014

I'm hyped on anticipation. I've always wanted to go to Amsterdam but in all my travels through Europe, I've never been. Now we head for the Heineken Music Hall where my imagination can't help but run wild. Are the famous "cafes" on every street corner? Are we gonna...

Hamburg, Germany Mar 29, 2014

The tour's route is starting to look like a cartoon. We have now looped in and out of Germany no less than 6 times. Don't get me wrong, the crowds in Germany have all been great, the venues are solid, and people treat you well. This Hamburg show will be our last in...

Düsseldorf, Germany Mar 28, 2014

What's up Düsseldorf! We are close to one of my favorite cities (Hamburg), but this one doesn't have the same overbearing industry along the water. During our stay in one of the cooler new hotels downtown we got to meet up with Samira Frassa for a little interview,...

Birmingham, UK Mar 26, 2014

Time for the strangest scheduling move of the tour. Amidst a few shows in Germany and the Netherlands sits a show in Birmingham. In England. Hmm. Ok. Well at least we get a day off on either end for their crew to get there and back. Not sure what to expect, my only...

Rotterdam, Netherlands Mar 24, 2014

So apparently the incredible city of Rotterdam will soon be under water? Jeez! I guess we are exceedingly lucky to be here! The hotel, it seems, wasn't quite ready for us 🙂 Construction workers were still in the rooms installing doors and fixtures as we checked in....

Hannover, Germany Mar 23, 2014

I can't stop thinking of pretzels. That's right, we're in the home of Snyder's Pretzels! OK, damn, I actually just learned they are from Hanover, Pennsylvania, not Hannover, Germany. Whatever. Anyway, we ARE in the home town of our photographer Michael Wallmüller. If...

Antwerp, Belgium Mar 22, 2014

Well, more #exchangeadventures on the road. Late night, after a moral victory performing Mannheim, I ran out of gas. There's no low-fuel light, now warning, just the van shutting off on the side of the autobahn. My bad. We had no service so we couldn't find a gas...

Mannheim, Germany Mar 20, 2014

Well here we go! Leaving Europa Park for Mannheim, we weren't sure whether we'd be welcomed at the door or laughed away. The night before in Zurich we had a severe issue with somebody that claimed to be with us. Let me assure you, they were not with us. So we packed...

Zurich, Switzerland Mar 19, 2014

I'm going to group in the departure from Paris into this post about Zurich. They say it's about the journey and in this case I agree. We took two vehicles for our long trek from Paris to Zurich for a show in the evening. So, that wakeup call was absurdly early, and...

Paris, France Mar 18, 2014

Paris, France. THE Paris, France! The City of Lights, of romance, of culture and art and language. The history. The freaking Best Western. The long drive from Oberhausen got half of us in a little early. We waited in the lobby of the dingiest hotel in Paris. Even...

Oberhausen, Germany Mar 17, 2014

Back in Germany! It's almost like hanging out at a friend's house now, after spending a lot of time at Europa Park. We speak a little bit of Deutsch and know the German audiences better than most other places. This particular show had particular interest for me. It's...

Copenhagen, Denmark Mar 15, 2014

København (or so they spell it) is another city we've been to...this time with some more time to explore. We stayed right on the water in a couple of big apartments with laundry machines and beds and space and wifi. Really, really nice. The travel in was not without...
