On Tour – 2nd Edition – Part 2

2nd entry 2

It has been 8 days since my last entry and already so much has happened. Here are some obvious facts: we are now 1,800+ miles further along our journey, we’ve consumed more V8 Energy drinks than I ever thought possible, and of course, we are catching up on a much-needed laundry day right now in Durham, NC.

Texas was an absolute blast. We dreaded Texas the last time around because of the sheer vastness of it. However, when you have 4 shows scattered throughout, it’s not so bad. Texas came out to party and we are so glad they did. The first stop was right along the U.S. border in El Paso. I’ll frankly admit I didn’t have high expectations for this town. You hear the stories of violence, corruption and rampant drug use, but our experience was far from that. We saw a spirited downtown. The locals were kind, generous and full of laughter everywhere we went. (more…)

On Tour: 2nd Edition – Part 1

2nd edition

Hello all,

I told myself I didn’t want to write about tour every day on my second time out, but I can’t help but feel like I need to write here and there. You get a lot of time to yourself on tour (despite being stuck in a van with 6 other people for 8+ hours a day) and it’s important to reflect on your thoughts, priorities and the journey ahead.

I firstly want to make a disclaimer about my previous writings. As happy and gung-ho as some of the entries may have seemed, there was a looming negativity I never wrote about. It’s something that was never overbearing, but it did put a slight damper on one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I apologize if I mislead anyone with the aura of fanaticism I incorporated into many of those stories. These entries will be nothing but the earnest truth. (more…)
