I just want to say thank you to everyone who has come to the shows so far, this tour has probably been the best, happiest,most fun, relaxed we’ve done.
I’ve personally enjoyed playing more than ever before and the connection between Peter, Clive, Craig, Tiggy, Emma and myself has been something that is very special indeed.
The new dynamic feels wonderful with all the power of the backing vocals from the girls,King Of The Castle sounded simply stunning on stage.
Craig’s drumming is world class, no other word for it and has added such a powerful new spirit to the songs, the drum solo in Green And Pleasant is a pure joy to watch and listen to.
Also gotta thank the crew: Mark Westwood- guitar tech, Simon Hill – keys tech, Zabine Reichuber- lights/screens, Twig – drum tech, John Webster – merchandise, Rachel Wilce – tour management and Dammes……er can’t remember his weird Dutch surname, but he is one helluva front of house sound guy!
The feedback for Men Who Climb Mountains has been incredible, we’ve had amazing reviews and everyone has been really positive about it, it got into the Dutch charts too!
So with just a few more shows to go we close this year with a feeling of tremendous cheer, it was all such a big mountain to climb this time last year with a lot of very difficult sections, crevices, seracs threatening to wrong foot us, but we’ve summited and it feels like you’re standing right there with us. Love ya to death for that!
Thanks to Marcin Pawlowski and Nidhal Marzouk (Yog Photography) for the stunning pics.
