Dudley, England

27.4.08 Dudley, Englanti



Aamusella oli taas lauttamatkan aika. Puolet porukasta oli vielä tiedostamattomassa tilassa siinä vaiheessa. Saavuttuamme Dudleyn keikkapaikalle, innokkaimmat fanit olivat jo ovella odottamassa. Oli tämän rundin viimeinen keikka. Viikko on melko lyhyt aika kiertää, ainakin verrattuna noihin 4-6 viikon pätkiin, joita meillä on ollut. Tuntuu, että juuri kun on päässyt vauhtiin ja homma alkaa pyörimään ikään kuin ”omalla painollaan” täytyykin jo lopettaa. Venuella ei ollut taaskaan nettiä, joten kirjoittelen nyt kotoa loput. Mutta, jälleen kerran oli mukava soittaa keikka. Keikan jälkeen hengailtiin fanien kanssa ja juteltiin niitä näitä. Seuraavana päivänä oli jälleen kotimatka edessä. Lentoasemalla Henrik viihdytti meitä hieman ”kitaroinnillaan”...Kivaa oli koko rahan edestä ja toivottavasti pian päästään taas Isoon Britanniaan kiertämään.



04/27/08 Dudley, England



In the morning it was again time for a little sea trip. Half of us were still unconscious I think…When we got to Dudley there were already people at the venue waiting to get in at the main doors. This was our last show of this tour. One week seems to be very short tour, at least compared to these 4-6 week´s tours we´ve had. It´s like when you seem to get the hang of it, it´s suddenly over. There´s was no internet in Dudley for us, so I´m writing this at home. But, once again it was a good night for the band and there were more fans than we expected. After the show we hang out with the fans and the guys of Pagan´s Mind which supported us the whole tour. On the following day we had a flight home ahead of us. At the airport Henrik entertained us with his skillful guitar techniques… We had fun worth every penny and hopefully we´ll return to the UK as soon as possible.



Cheers, Elias
