Greetings From North Of The Border
Greetings from north of the border! A great response so far to the North American shows. Thanks to all who came to Washington, NYC (the first night for me will remain an unforgettable high. Thank you.), Philadelphia and Boston, Quebec City and Montreal. The affection and excitement has been palpable night after night.
Right.. I'll now finish the lead vocal for "The Sky Above The Rain", and then I'll go and lie down..
Au revoir my darlin's,
Just like to say a big thank you to everyone at the Boston gig for making my birthday so special...All the cakes,balloons cards and gifts were very much appreciated..The crowd singing Happy birthday to me I will always remember...It just doesn't get any better than that....brilliant!!
