You can never be sure exactly what you’ll encounter on the way, or indeed at the performance venue. “Tonight we have half a set”, “There’s only one entrance/exit” and “Please mind this tripping hazard/take extra care on the stairs/don’t fall off the back/mind the mics/try to stay warm/cheat front/hopefully it won’t rain” all add a layer of extra adrenalin to the proceedings!
The tour took my colleagues from Casterton in SA, through Melbourne (for 2 performances) and up through regional Victoria, then various dates in NSW as far north as Casino (and yes, there were some hairy moments dodging post-Cyclone Debbie floodwaters) whilst I joined up with them via plane at various points of the tour (a feat in itself).
As I write this we are having a 3 week hiatus before the final run of shows in Adelaide and a few final dates in regional South Australia, all of which take place in May. Can't wait!
