We made the decision to pull the Alberta Rose Theatre show in Portland on Thursday after I did my sound check. I wasn’t able to get any joy from my voice due to a chest infection. I don’t remember ever pulling a show for health reasons or otherwise and I apologise to the fans that showed up at the venue with great expectations. I promise I will be back as soon as possible and will make it up to you. I began writing this blog post while en route to the Hotel Utah in San Francisco, I took a few different concoctions which seemed to work and I felt well enough to go ahead with the show which was a resounding success, surprising considering how congested I felt during the day. It’s a drag getting a bug like this amidst a tour – hopefully I’m over the worst of it.
There is some cool film of Ed and I at The Triple Door, Seattle shot on Wednesday which will be on my website / YouTube very soon. Also, there are some fantastic reviews of the show. Here is one in particular I like, although I don’t get the ‘sparce crowd’ bit when we had 170 attending:
Off to LA in the morning for a show at McCabes, Santa Monica. Hope to see some of you there.
