Hey guys! I have two shows this weekend in another city called "Santa Fe" and I have to travel around 500 kilometers.. I've done it many times and it's an amazing experience... Have you ever done a tour or a gig far from your city? how far?

The furthest I've travelled to play a gig so far is to Birmingham, England which is 136 miles to the venue (220km). However, later this year I'll be travelling to Bolton and then Lancaster which is 218 miles (351km) and 252 miles (405 km).

Should be tiring but fun !! Will have to stop at a service station and get a burger ! wink.gif

I love touring and travelling to gigs smile.gif Most of giggin we did was out of our home town, almost all within country, and the most distant cities that we went too were usually in between 200-300km.

Have fun on the gig Gab, try to record it smile.gif
