Sayreville, NJ

3.2.08 Sayreville








Venue, eli keikkapaikka, oli asiallinen ja siisti. Siellä oli oikein suihkukin. On mukava päästä välillä peseytymään. Kahdessa ensimmäisessä mestassa ei nimittäin ollut suihkua laisinkaan, hyi helevetti..Keikan aikana tulee kuitenkin melkoinen hiki päälle. Kaikki vaatteet on aina ihan litimärkinä.






Soiteltiin soundcheckissä vähän Whitesnakea Markon ja rumputeknikko Tapsa kanssa. Saksalainen managerimme tuli moikkaamaan meitä keikalle. Illan Super bowl saattoi verottaa kuulijakuntaa hieman, mutta ihan kivasti porukkaa oli kuitenkin. Varmaan reilu 500. Mekin seurattiin bussissa Super bowlia. Henrikki selvitti säännöt mulle, kun en oikein ollut kartalla..Onneksi New York voitti, oltiin kerta New Jerseyssä, jossa fanitetaan aika kivasti New Yorkia. Paikallisen lämppäribändin pojat lahjoittivat meille kaksi tolkuttoman kokoista Vodka-pulloa...Lämppäreitä oli taas aikas monta. Edellisenä iltana oli 7 lämppäriä..Se alkaa olemaan jo aika kova koetus fanien korville..Ai niin, syötiin muuten pitsaa keikan jälkeen...

The Venue was nice actually..they even had a shower there..It´s nice to have a shower every once and a while. The first two venues didn´t have a shower at all. And we sweat a lot during shows. Clothes all wet..






We played some Whitesnake in the sound check with Marko and our drum technician Tapsa. Our German manager showed up to see the show. We were watching Super Bowl in the bus. Henrik explained the rules to me..New York won so it was nice because we were quite close to New York.. The guys from the local support band gave us two big bottles of Vodka as a gift, that was nice..There were quite many support bands tonight. In Bedford there were 7 openers for us. I think it starts to be a little bit too much for the ears of the fans..Oh by the way, we had some pizza after the show..
