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
You guys, this being on tour business is making me even suckier than usual at keeping you updated. So, let’s just have a hug, and throw around some forgiveness.
Which is WAY better than the, ‘where are the photos and updates from the fucking tour JENNY?’, that my Nanna’s been emailing me
Well the first week was huge.
Don’t forget, you can FOLLOW ME ON FACEBOOK – because when I go MIA here, you can be sure I’ll show up there.
Now, from memory (which is a joke on a good day) this has been the biggest start to a Sydney tour ever
The first week, entirely sold out
And I’m writing this backstage from Castle Hill, the first show of the second week – which is also packed to the rafters
Here’s some of my fave pics from week one
Bless Mum’s heart, she is the best merch bitch in the business
But she’s still getting the hang of the big girl camera
But sometimes, blurry is best
We all look younger and a bit more lovely
So, don’t go changin’ Mum!
As always, one of the best parts of touring, is the characters you get to meet
The funny ones, the tall ones
And the ones who, even after I have SAT ON THEIR LAP to sing them the BASTARD SONG
Still come back for more
And by more, I mean, sit on the edge of the stage to have Dad serenade them
are you fucking high, dude? steel, right there.
There’s the usual assortment of bald heads
And even some straight up normal people (but we don’t see those too often)
It all adds up to the perfect combo of holy shit and fuck yeah
But night after night, we meet some of the best people around
In the form of venue security
These guys (and girls) have a big task
They keep the crazy to a minimum
And they work really hard to keep the peace, and provide protection from the fucktards
Especially when the fucktards are DAD & I
We can be quite the shit stirrers
It’s been a while…we missed you.
We missed the big ol’ auditorium we play in here
And how when it fills up, it feels like a rock concert
All stadium-y ‘n shit
Rock out with your cock out!
Or, in my case, if you don’t have
a penis one…… maybe with just your red lippy and guitar on?
I’d finished my set and signing
And was backstage
cracking open a bottle of red taking off my FMFM shoes
When Mum sent me this text
I thought, well, I’m not surprised, they’ve always been crazy about Dad in this part of the world
And then I thought, hmmm….must be nearly time to go home if Mum is starting to say ‘fuck’.
Thank you Stevenage.
For a wild show
And giving Dad the goodbye he deserves
Me…you can’t get rid of so easily.
See you next year! x
