“Dec 06th 1999
(written Dec 4th and 5th)
Hi, how’s it going ?
I’m still alive. I haven’t been writing too much recently as I’ve been concentrating on the tour, so apologies to anyone who has been waiting.
We are in Madrid and I think I’ve eaten too much “Paella”, I’m feeling a little bloated but there are two hours to go before the gig so, it should be digested by then.
All the shows so far have been great, thank you all for coming. We have been playing a mixture of songs from all four albums and the reaction to the new stuff has been fantastic, it still amazes me how fast people can learn the lyrics.
It’s been great flying home every few days, (the joy of waking up in your own bed is a thing you do not take for granted when you have toured for a long time!) I thought it would feel a little strange because I wasn’t on the bus, but I’ve had a few days where I stayed out here (in Spain) for a bit of a party which is always good for bonding!
We were discussing our plans for next year today and I can tell you that we hope to start recording some new material in May and we will definitely be doing Summer festivals around Europe and the Womad festival in South Africa. We are also trying to organize to go to South America but that has not been confirmed yet.
Woo-hoo! Great news today! . In Belfast both sides sat down together around the table so hopefully they will be able to work things out and we will finally have peace in our beautiful country.
It’s now Dec 5th and we are in Barcelona . A few of us went out around the town for a while then we went to eat at the “Hard Rock Cafe” and did a little tour of the bars until 4.30am. But surprisingly I felt great this morning, there is something magic about this city. It is without doubt my favourite!! O.K. it’s time for me to start my stretching etc. before the gig so talk to you later.
