Cancellation in Krasnoyarsk October 9
Writing this to explain some more about it.
This day became very strange…..and sad…….
Havok and me shared room and he went to the venue with the crew as usual. After some time he came back and said the gig was going to be cancelled !! I just went ”What” ??!!!
The venue was being renovated and they were far from finished !!!
– How the hell can that be when they´ve known for months that we were coming there !??
Very strange that the promotor hadn´t been there to check what the club-owner was up to !??
Our Tourmanager TomTom checked out every possibility to do an alternative acoustic gig instead somewhere else…. But there was no chance to do it, due to practical reasons.
Instead we did a signing-session before we left, and the money from the pre-sales were given back to those who had bought them.
We went to the railwaystation and took off towards Novosibirsk.
Thomas and I shared cabin. We listened to some music from Benny Andersson from ABBA and other stuff and I continued to read my book about Ritchie Blackmore (Black Knight)
I´m so impressed by Thomas knowledge about swedish music history and all of our old songs from the early- up to the mid 19-hundreds 🙂
I have started to call Christian ”On-Off”, cause that´s how he is: Either he´s so full of energy, talking loud and running around – Or, you may found him somewhere sleeping on the floor or on a couch somewhere in the backstage-area ! 😀
