GREBBESTAD 2011 (Mic Copperfield)

Before heading to our third gig in Grebbestad we were invited for lunch at our tour manager Staffan's place in Gothenburg.
This is where Mic showed his talents as a magician. The bewildered audience is Staffans daughter.

We should really add this trick to the Europe show!........or perhaps not......

Don't know who these two clowns are!



We also had the pleasure to have John Levens son Daniel travel with us on these first three shows. By the way, he's the good looking guy on the left.....



Some pre-show tapping......

And finally something from the show. A slightly different view........

VARBERG 2011

GREAT GIG BUT SOME MAJOR MISHAPS.....

NORUM FALLING BACKWARDS INTO HIS RIGG MAKING THE STAGE SCREENS FALL APART.

MICS KEYBOARD FAILING DURING THE FAMOUS RIFF IN THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

AND A 'SPINAL TAP' MOMENT AS JOEY WAS ABOUT TO SHOOT BIG SMOKE OUT OVER THE AUDIENCE WITH A BIG KANON AT THE VERY END OF THE SHOW......ONLY A FEW DROPS CAME OUT!!!!!

QUITE EMBARRASSING BUT WHAT THE HELL!

IT'S ONLY ROCKNROLL.........

GOTHENBURG AUGUST 2011

We were very pleased with this opening gig for this Swedish tour. It went better than we expected. Something usually goes wrong on the first gig on a tour, but tonight felt great.

We're not too happy with playing only one hour and 15 minutes, so we played on a bit longer tonight.

Fun to play the new song Doghouse again. One thing is for sure. That song will be well rehearsed when we go into the studio in October.

See you out there
