Arrived to Romagnano, Italy
We didn´t really know what to expect cause Italy is not the biggest market for Therion.
The weather was sunny and pretty warm but inside the venue at soundcheck it was
freezing cold !!! 😀
Here we also had this fantastic toilet; a hole in the floor which seems to be pretty usual in
Italy…….But here someone also had put a plastic chair there and carved out a hole for the
ass so you actually could sit down properly to ”do it” !!! 😀
The gig turned out to be really great !!!! We didn´t expect that. We were really overwhelmed !
My Italian friends Andrea Pensalfine with his family were there and so was Stefania, and also
Giorgia who gave me this lovely painting of me she had drawn with a really nice frame.
Paolo Vallerga was there to sell the Therion boardgame and some more of his merchandise.
He also brought the Experiment noQ albums for me, Johan & Linnéa to sign.
Woke up at ”Z7” in Pratteln, Switzerland. A pretty big venue where we have played before.
It ´s actually the same here as in Italy; Switzerland isn´t either the best market for Therion, but we
have a true following. Jasmine came there to meet me up and take me to a hotel nearby where
we could have some privacy.
Andrea Pensalfine and his family were here today too. Even some of my other friends from France and
Switzerland showed up.
The gig was really good here as well ! Though the audience here is a bit more laid back you can really feel
and see their appreciation for the band and what we stand for.
After the show, as usual – PIZZA !!! Then wait for the crew to pack the gear and then we continued
the traveling with the bus towards France.
Arrived to Paris, France at noon.
Me, Johan and Thomas took the subway to go and see the Eifeltower !
The concert was sold out ! Johanna was there to dance her belly-dance with us on 2 songs.
Just like in october last year, the audience was fantastic ! Really Great !
After the show we set for London, England.
For a long time I just lied there in my bunk watching the lights of Paris……
Couldn´t sleep a single minute this night.
We were at the border to England at 04:00 am.
I don´t really understand it, but to cross the border they have these special rules at the customs,
so we had to get up by that time to prepare to show our passports…….. You don´t have to do that anywhere
else in the E.U. (?!) Maybe England is the möst importänt Cöuntry in the World ? 😀
