Made in America briefing

Made in America briefing  Made in America briefing

So, we have a arrived in the states and done our first show. This took place at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia, PA (We prefer the 1638 name, New Sweden).

Before playing the concert we had breakfast and went to consult with the inanimate object that is the Rocky/Sly Stallone statue for tips on how to win in Philly. Funny thing this. Making statues to commemorate people that never existed. I love America!

It was clear to us the we had a lot of first time customers/Hives virgins in the crowd. This is always fun. First three songs they watch us with mouths open and eyes agape and then by the 4th the poison and hypnotics start working and they start smiling, dancing, shaking, shivering and clapping. If it sounds like I am tooting my own horn here it is simply because I think its a horn that should be much tooted.

Well, other bands and artists played too of course. Jay Z had picked the bands and it was a mix of Rock and what industry dorks call urban styles. Us, Santigold, RUN DMC all had great shows and Pearl Jam and X and Drake and so on and so forth. After all this hoopla some of the guys went to see Bruce Springsteen at a stadium he was rocking. Still awaiting the report during the imminent breakfast meeting as jet lag tickled our feet at 6.30 this morning.

We will now stay chilly in Philly(New Sweden) and then fly ourselves to Seattle. I love me some Seattle.

OK, good talk.

Last night at Reading was awesome! Great to be back on UK soil and deliver the Hives goods to a crowd who were in town to party. We enjoyed the hell out of ourselves and we are looking forward to see if todays show at Leeds will be as good.

See ya
