What's up ?
Managed to get off the plane and into the US without too much hassle. Naturally our busdriver was at the wrong airport so we had to wait for a couple of hours or something before we got to board our home for the next two weeks. The first night was spent in Manhattan, food...drinks...the whole 9 yards. Woke up in the bus in New Jersey so appeareantly we got home ok. After some breakfast and showers it was time to drive back into NYC and go to the venue. Our day was spent walking around in the city, having dinner, exchanging money and whatnot. In the evening we played the first show on this tour. As it was the Finnish independence day we used Finlandia instead of our usual introtape. Being that it's about 7 minutes long it was a bit much but whattahell, it only happends once a year if we have a show on that day so, you'll live with it right ?
There were no showers at the venue so as you can imagine we're a smelly bunch at the moment. Luckily there are some showers here at the Palladium so as soon as I get this done I'll hit that. During the busride last night we got pretty hammered for a change but I guess it's just something we can't change.....and why should we ? So as said, at the moment we're in Worchester and tonight will be the second show of this tour, we changed the setlist a bit since Europe because we couldn't take our acoustic guitars with us. Last night we played The Last Amazing Grays and Last drop falls instead of that.....and Elias had a solo thing as well. We'll see if there will be further changes along the road but as it looks now, those are the songs we'll be using for this tour....blah blah......gotta go. Keep it real...or something along those lines...
