London / Shepherds Bush / Balls And Banners tour 2011



Hello friends

What a show last night! The audience really made it a special. Completely sold out this year! Things are moving in the right direction for us. Hopefully next year we will perform in an even bigger venue. We had loads of cameras rolling. The new DVD with really cool extra material will be out in May/June. It feels good to deliver a different show to the one featured on our last DVD from 20o4. The Gary Moore tribute and the New song DOGHOUSE feels like excellent additions to our show. We haven't really played More than meets the eye in a long time either. We really enjoy these new extra bits and we have come to realize how much the audience appreciate it. Also we are so pleased with our light designers work on stage. The look is great!
The tour is going really well and we will update this blog with films and pics as we go along........so please keep visiting.

Hi all,
during last night London set at Sheppards Bush I thought, that it was a very good idea to come over all the way from Hamburg only for this show. It was awesome to see the consolidation between band and the audience. Everyone could feel the spirit.
Thank you all for this special evening - no doubt about it, one of those rare moments of pure rock´n roll.
Hope to see and hear most of the set on a DVD, more over as an official Europe plugged live recording(?)...

Well done boys!
See you somewhere else (except
"The Fabrique" venue in Hamburg)

PS: My thoughts also goes to Steve Lee - R.I.P; maybe he saw this gig from his "new place" in heaven)

Cheers

Congratulations! Happy for seeing John N. more "accomplise" with the band on that first pic.
I can't wait for that DVD, but I need time to save money to buy it, so the date is good for me :)
Good luck for the rest of the tour, you're the best!

I don't have words for the Saturday show, it was fantastic... Joey's voice was pure and powerful... the song list was great and Ian's solo was amazing... Loved it...
My only regret was I was next to the bar... Bad idea when you want to enjoy the show in peace... Last year, I was on the 1st level and I will make sure to be up there next time
;-)))) love you all...

Shepherds Bush Empire is very nice place for a concert. We really enjoyed there.
Congratulations to the new song.
I hope that in the summer not miss you the Czech Republic.
We look forward to the DVD, to the new album and to you guys on concerts of course.

Good luck with the continuation of the UK tour.

This was a fantastic gig (even though I barely saw a thing so I will have to buy the DVD!). The band were 'on fire' and we are so fortunate in the UK they have toured here again. It must be great for them to sell out places like Shepherds Bush, and very much deserved, but please don't play any bigger venues (don't go all Bon Jovi on us).

Having had the priviledge of seeing more than 1 night the best was probably one of the smallest venues - Manchester. It was intimate and it was all just...perfect. Although Bristol was a close second and the band were on top form. It has been amazing seeing them play and also having such a good time. What a week. It doesn't get much better

Thanks also for introducing me to Voodoo Johnson I was really impressed.

Bonjour Europe !
It'd be nice if it was possible to buy and download "Doghouse" from now.
I'd like to listen to this song in a good quality...
Could you add it to your merchandise lists, please ?
