What a tour!!
Last night in PORT DOUGLAS was the final show of our Queensland tour
I’d never played there before
And they sure rolled it out for us
From the fab staff at the venue
To the insanely brilliant crowd
It all went into the mix, to make us feel pretty spesh as we get ready to head on home
And just the idea of getting back to my Diamond and my babies…
I need a nap just thinking bout it!
OK….that’s a lie
I do this every night before the show
Yep, I done, done it again
Totally fell of the blogging wagon
Let me make it up to you guys by sharing a shit tonne of pics
That’ll work, right?
Queensland is not only one of the most spectacular states in Australia visually
It also happens to be where a lot of people we love more than our luggage, live
I’ve got cute cousins
Teenie tiny Aunties
Some of Dad’s fav peeps are here too
Like this man
One of Australia’s most gifted (and awarded) songwriters
And all-round top bloke
And I even made a new BFF on this trip
No, not Kane (the bloke standing next to me)
Although I totally grateful to him and the crew at Royce Music in Toowoomba
For my fantabulous new touring buddy
A totally wow sounding Taylor Mini
I haven’t named her yet
We’ve been busy with our 6 shows a week
But never too
old busy to take backstage selfies before the show
And perfecting our DUCK FACE poses
That have somehow morphed into the perfect FUCK FACES as a result
We had a night off for the big State Of Origin Game
Luckily, our family are mad Queensland supporters (for those that don’t know, it’s only ever played between N.S.W. & Queensland)
I didn’t rub it in at ALL when they won
For the EIGHTH YEAR IN A ROW
Then, on our next day off, my sista from another mista
CACTISHA, came to visit
Can I get a fuck yes?!!
I first met Cactisha (not her real name….long L-O-N-G story) when I was a kid and she was Dad’s tour manager
We’ve stayed close since then, and try to catch up whenever we’re in the same part of the world
She’s gone on to be a bit of a megastar in the field of management and promotions
But we still manage to bring out the fucktard in her within a few hours of catching up
We had a great day out in Airlie Beach
If you’ve been there, you know how SPECCY that place is
Beautiful times a bazillion
Then it got messy
Well…SOME people got messy
Others chose to be the photographer of said messiness
*ahem*There are SO many photos
That I am going to save
For a rainy day
Or when I need to blackmail any of these numnuts
Because hooley dooley….
Were there some hangovers to be had…for some
For others, not so much
We’ve already made plans to do
it all most of it again later in the year
I might leave the camera at home for that one 😉
I even got to go in an infinity pool for the first time
It was bloody cold
But at least I can I’ve done it!
Yeah, I know….some people climb mountains or go abseiling
I like to try out pools and hotel beds
Enjoyable? You betcha!
Every day, every drive….there’s really no such thing as average scenery in the whole state of Queensland
And after ANOTHER sold out night (tonight in Townsville)
There’s definitely no such thing as an average show in Queensland
Bring on the last two shows!
Thanks to Sophie Elliott, for the great revue of the Geraldton show a couple of weeks ago
Sophie’s kind words almost make up for the photo
Definitely a contender for best ‘I just farted and might have followed through’ face
If you guys keep being all lovely like that, it’s hard to stay away
So I won’t!
Yep, back in Geraldton with Dad December 1st, at the Queen’s Park Theatre
