Hi fans! We are now a week into our full blown arena/smaller place tour of the american incontinent. We have played the following places and done the following things:
Detroit: Played a huge place opening for Maroon 5. Went swell. It has been a long time since we played to people who had never heard us. It is a good thing. Ben from the Dirtbombs came down and talked and "hung out" as they say over here.
Chicago: Our own show at the Metro. Must be the venue we have played the most times in the US. Great place and neighbourhood. I bought a bass guitar. It is black.
St Paul: Good show again. Vigilante was down on his sound so we bought some new amps. Nicholaus got a good old Fender and Vig got some fancy schmanzy thing that sounds great. Now we are unstoppable! We did not see Prince anywhere.
Rosemont: I dont remember much of this. Dont know why either. I am sure it was a good day.
Toronto, Canada: Had a fantastic show at the Phoenix! Sold out in seconds from what I can gather. The Hives maintain their grip on the canadians even after a long absence. Some girl stole my shoestrings during a sensitive moment and I finished the set shoeless. Totally undignified. We met up with our friends the Deadly Snakes and went to bars. Much fun.
Then we played a show at the arena which was also a big sucess. It takes the crowd a few songs but then they clap and scream and stand up just like you folks. We are breaking new ground here and it feels good.
Now Cleveland. Lights out!
