The Glamour Of Touring

Dear Mum,

Touring is very glamorous. We stayed in a fancy hotel in Portsmouth.

So fancy it had an illustrious bar.

And tonight we're playing in a hexagon.

Having a wonderful time.

Your ever loving son,


As it happens, I really am loving it. Jay, Kumar (my tour manager) and I make for a happy vanload of jolly, mild-mannered sorts so while most touring has had the ennui of travel punctuated by the fun of gigs, this is more the fun of travel punctuated by the even-more-fun of gigs.

Come and join us some time in Salisbury, Aldershot, Bedford, Derby, Sheffield, Bradford, Newcastle, Cardiff, Manchester, Liverpool, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Cambridge, Southend, Dorking, Brighton, Milton Keynes, Guildford, Bournemouth, Dublin, Birmingham, Oxford, York, Middlesbrough, Bristol, High Wycombe, Tunbridge Wells, Watford, Cheltenham, Wolverhampton, Leicester, London, Coventry, Carlisle, Preston, Perth or Belfast...

Dave, I've spent the last month dealing with BT on a business broadband issue - I understand your pain !

Can you say Schadenfreude :D !

Hmmm... I read about this place. The bar is Illustrious, the restaurant is Invincible, ballroom is Glorious, Manager is Furious and you were Courageous staying there.

I just hope you got a room with a sea view!
