The Singles Tour - Tour Blog

End Of Tour/Christmas party at Union, Los Angeles, CA. (Day Off)
author: Daniel Barassi (Webmaster)
date posted: December 21, 1998

A party for the band, crew, and select invited guests. Basically, a lot of people crammed into a small place, drinking, and following Martin around. :)

When I got to the location (I was one of the first people there), I was surprised to find fans outside the building (so much for secret parties). Inside. the place was decked out with Christmas lights and balloons, including the light-trimmed "DM" that was backstage at the San Diego show . There was a DJ spinning classic 70's tracks (and some not-so-classic), a free bar (always nice), a generous helping of Chinese food, and a Korg keyboard sitting in the corner ready to be played (it never was while I was there, and I stayed most of the night). Martin, Andy, Peter Gordeno, Christian Eigner, Janet and Jordan were all in attendance (David did not make it), along with a lot of the touring personnel. Again, most of what I saw were people walking around (mainly following Martin), and chatting the night away, while smoking up a storm (my poor lungs). For a fan (like myself), hanging out in the same area as the band is cool, but it was otherwise kind of boring. But, the party did serve its purpose - a good party for the crew before the last show. It was not meant to humor any fans - it was for the band and crew. In that respect, it was a cool party! Plus, Santa showed up, and was making balloon creations for the people. Never knew Santa drank Jack Daniels. ;)
