There's no rest for the wicked! The day began with phone calls from some people who are working hard on Hellion's "Karma's A Bitch" tour. Jan Barker, our booking agent at ATI, called to discuss doing more shows later this year. Over the weekend we had offers for more shows in New York City and in St. Louis. However, unfortunately, we just can not fit them in without compromising the shows. As it is, there are two stretches in the tour, back to back, where I will be singing 6 days in a row. Most singers like to limit the shows to no mote than four in a row - but I have done long runs before with quite a few days in a row. To fill in the empty days, however, would provide no rest. So we'll have to just add more dates later this year, or early next year.
Brenda Starr has been busy organizing our street team. If you live in any of the cities where Hellion is touring, and would like to help us spread the word about the shows, please contact her. You can reach her on Facebook by clicking here.
Over the last few days I've bee in contact with my friends who are on tour with Operation: Mindcrime. When the last time Hellion toured, there was no social media, etc. so it was harder to keep in contact. I appreciated the text messages and pictures.
Deme, who is the tour manager of Operation: Mindcrime, and who will be Hellion's tour manager for the first part of our tour sent me this picture he took at sound check a few hours ago. (See Below).
Simon Wright sent me this picture of Rudy Sarzo on the tour bus. As you can see, Rudy has a friend on the bus. The pup belongs to the driver of the tour bus. Everybody is enjoying having a pup on the bus. (See Below).
Well, its almost 9:00 p.m. and I've still got to do errands! Next stop is the local FedEx, to drop off some legal documents. After that, I'll probably stop by McDonalds for a cup of coffee and a small order of frys. Then it will be back to work for several more hours!
