Australia is great.
The internet there is not.
We have been on tour now since.. whatever. I can't be bothered to look up the date.
Started in Europe and then on to Australia. The European gigs were great. Especially the one in Nimes in a beautiful amphitheater.
Loooong flight. I had forgotten just how grueling the journey is. It fucked me up. I woke up in Australia after many, many hours on a plane and I was sick. And not just a little sick. Very sick.
But the show must go on. So pumped full of all kinds of (legal) drugs we played The beautiful Enmore Theatre in Sydney and then on to the Splendor in the Grass festival. By now my fever was making me question reality and I remember during our festival set there that I began to wonder what country I was in. I was for some reason sure it was Holland. I struggled with this for a while during the set but then remembered I was in Australia.
Melbourne. Asgeir is sick as well. I'm a little better but still not great. The gig has to be cut short because Asgeir is losing his voice and I'm feeling faint on stage.
I have to tip my hat to the amazing audience that night, they knew we were sick but they helped us get as far as we could. There was a lot of love in that room. We will be back to make it up to them.
Then it was Perth. By now I'm much better, but Steini is sick now and Asgeir is taking steroids to get his voice back. The Perth gig is great. Again, fantastic audience and everything is fantastic about Australia. Exept the bloody Intenet.
So today I woke up in Seoul. I slept for 11 hours. I think the longest I've been able to sleep on this tour sofar is 3-4 hours at a time.
We are playing a festival here today and then tomorrow it off to my favorite city in the world, Tokyo. I can't wait and I hope I'm feeling better when we are there since it's a city I want to use all my free time to explore.
See you on the other side.
