Whirlwind week - February 2017
View of Paris
It's been quite a week!
The day after rehearsals ended we all went to Minehead in Somerset, UK to perform our first show of the year. In front of an appreciative crowd it felt great to play the big favourites along with other first time material such as the new album numbers or some of those Genesis songs never played before by my band like "One for the Vine" and "Inside & Out".
Jo and I then drove home through the night as we had a plane to catch the following morning to Serbia! There I was involved with the video filming for the new album opening track "Behind the Smoke". It has quite a big cast and is the same team which created the video for the track "Wolflight", so I know it'll be impressive...
The day after our return from Serbia, we flew to Paris for a bunch of interviews. Ben Fenner came with us as guitar tech, so I could also do some filmed playing.
As I write this blog, I'm finally packing for the flight tomorrow to the States for Cruise to the Edge and the North American tour. It's all go, but looking forward to everything! Always great to catch up with everyone on the road too...
