    World Tour: Berlin  

    Sept 9th, 2019

     

    Slept til 12. I never do that. We all needed the off day yesterday, travelling from London to Berlin was long but we really got to see a lot of the city last night. And I had the best Falafel of my life. All the German beers probably helped.  

    It was raining so we drove around the city a little more before soundcheck. There’s a heaviness to this place. You can really feel the weight of everything that’s gone down here. We stayed on the East side, in a once Jewish Neighbourhood. 

    Franz Club was super cool. I got the feeling they’d been playing music here longer than Australia has been known as Australia. 

    I did my first German radio interview. The poor lady had to ask the question in German, then in English, then I’d answer in English and she’d have to translate that into German. I have no idea what she told them. Then I played Young Again on-air.  

    Back to the venue, and people showed up. And they crammed in. And they smiled. And they sang. In their mostly American/German accents I could feel the joy in the room. They love country music here and I loved playing it for them. 

    We will be back to Germany. For more shows next time. And bigger places. 

    Danke Shoen, Deutschland!!! Wir Lieben dich!!!
