15th May 2012 – Lloyd Williams European Tour
sooo, it’s been a few days since the last post. Sorry about that, but we’ve just had such amazing gigs that i’ve simply not had time to post, and/or I haven’t had access to the Internet.
Since last time we’ve been to Scruffy’s in Karlsruhe, awesome little Irish place where we’ve been on a previous tour. A little bit annoying gig as the place was full of students who were simply not able to listen to the gig and had to talk all the way though, but hey, these things happen hey?
After that we headed down to Munich for three days and two gigs. First one at the lovely little place called Rennsalon. Really cool little bar and very cool people.
The day after we were at the awesome Trachtenvogl, also in Munich, were Lloyd and Mikey had to play completely unplugged because of annoying neighbours, but it went down a storm! Just check the two videos here to hear what people thought about the gig!
The next part of our journey was amazing, we headed down to Switzerland, which for me as a tour manager, was a first, dealing with Taxes on the border and Carnet ATA’s etc. But once we were there we were absolutely stunned, it is such an amazingly beautiful country, it is hard to describe how gorgeous it is, you’ll have to go and see for yourselves, but trust me, it is worth it!
Today we’re in Nürnberg and went to the Zeppelin Field where the nazi’s had their rallies in the build up to the second world war and I stood on the exact spot where Hitler once stood and held his speeches. It was very sobering and I walked away a quiet man after that.
Tonight’s gig in Nürnberg should be fun, it is almost sold out and I am looking forward to seeing what reactions we get from the crowd this time around!
Until next time peeps!
p.s. if anyone knows how to make the youtube videos appear next to each other rather than below, please put me out of my misery and tell me, it’s driving me insane!
