The Exciter Tour - Tour Blog

Munich, Germany

So let me backtrack now since there is a bit I have not told you guys about.

Our day off in Copenhagen last Monday was pretty uneventful - most of us just went to dinner and had a quiet night in. Then the next day we were off for another 3 shows in a row.

On Tuesday we played Amneville which was very beautiful, yet in the middle of nowhere. We had about an hour drive from the airport to the venue, then after the show, we did a runner to Cologne. It was the same drive back, so one hour after the show, then once we landed in Germany, we had an hour and a half drive to the hotel, so all of us got in about 2:30 AM Wednesday morning. Talk about an exhausting day!

Then on Wednesday we had a show at the Kolnarena which was very nice, and the best part about it was that it was SO close to the hotel, so we had much of the day to wander before we had to leave for the venue. Also, the crew was staying at our hotel which is rare, and because we were doing two shows in a row at the same venue, we were all able to hang out together at the bar afterwards. It is so nice when we all get to see each other because more times than not, they leave right after the shows, and if they are around, they usually are not staying with us. So anyways, as you can imagine, we had a great time, though the majority of us felt AWFUL the next day.

Thursday was the second show in Cologne, and that went well too. The guys mixed up the set a bit by Martin and Peter singing Dressed In Black as the acoustic song, and Condemnation replaced Clean. They both sounded amazing, and the crowd really enjoyed it.

Again that night we had a bit too much fun and ended up in one of our rooms making up songs while Martin played guitar. Also, Andrew and I borrowed the luggage trolley from downstairs and pushed each other around on it in the hallways and into the rooms. It was fun until we got yelled at by the hotel staff saying that they had been looking for it for ages. Oops!

Yesterday was a day off and most of us relaxed and slept - this is what usually happens on these days off.

Right now we are in Munich performing at Olympia Park, and again, since it is two in a row, we have planned a big dinner tonight after the show with the crew. It should be fun, and since they are celebrating Oktoberfest here already, it should be a blast!
