Day 1 – First Day of Rehearsals

… So here it is, 3 years after my last tour diary, the first entry of a brand new world tour diary. The next four months promise an epic journey spanning 15 countries and 4 continents. As is the case with many epic journeys, this one started with a rude awakening after not enough sleep… less than two hours’ sleep to be precise. Bleary eyed, I made the 4 hour car journey to the rehearsal studio that would be our home for the next couple of days.

 

 

We spent the day looking at four new arrangements – always good to add some new material to the set. I got through the day with more than a little help from coffee… and LOTS of it…

After the rehearsal I went back to Simon’s flat, where I’m staying until we fly to Japan on Wednesday. A curry, as much sleep as I could get and a well-earned rest for my battered fingers were the order of the night!
