We’ve added two shows to the British leg of the tour! Cambridge UK on Oct 9th, and Dublin, Ireland on Oct 11th. Cambridge is kind of my second home town, as my dad taught classical archaeology at Trinity (well they both have a Trinity College actually but he taught at the English one) and my stepmother and brother still live there. The Irish gig will mean a frantic overnight drive from Islington to catch the morning ferry across the Irish Sea, but it will be worth it. I’ve never played a gig in Dublin—how shameful is that?
The last few N.American gigs in Boston, Toronto and Montreal last night were fabulous. It must have done me a world of good to offload all my s#*t on you the other day, because I played and sang better than I have all tour. We partied hard at Harper’s Ferry before taking off for the Canadian border. I enjoyed finally meeting Crackers for the first time, a long time long distance partner in crime and current owner of my infamous Casio MIDI controller. We wrapped up on Montreal, a cool city with a very European culture. I cracked a few jokes in French, though as we know, non-French speakers making the effort ends to fall on deaf ears! Still, we had a fine time, and I just saw my band and crew off to the US border and said adieu to the tour bus, as I will be staying here the next 24 hours prior to catching a flight back to the UK.
Here are some final US pics, taken by Jeff Wasilko in Boston. Believe me, I felt even tireder than I look!
