Back in Groningen again. This is a great town – beautiful European streets, made better by some especially clement weather, chilled out Dutch atmosphere, a cool venue that I’ve visited before… Tour is sweet. Germany was, as ever, a total blast. Brussels, Eindhoven and Utrecht were all too kind. This run is coming to a close pretty soon, but the road rolls ever onwards (towards the sunshine of the West Coast of the USA, so no complaints!). Incidentally, the San Francisco and Vancouver shows are selling tickets like crazy, so if you want to come along I’d advise getting them sooner rather than later.
Speaking of the USA, I am very pleased to confirm that I will be appearing (solo) at this year’s Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, TN, on Thursday June 10th 2010. I’m new to US festivals, so this is exciting for me.
Finally, to round off an update replete with internationalism, I’m very excited to announce that I will be playing a show at Rock School in Hong Kong on May 7th. After that I have a string of shows in Mainland China. This is really virgin territory for me, and I’m simultaneously expectant, intrigued and a little nervous. I’ll be keeping a full tour diary for the trip.
