So! The final day of our first tour of America. Like all good things do, it had gone by very quickly. We’re not going to lie, by this point we were all broken. Because of this, a lot of the day was spent micro-napping, and hugging sofas. sub sequentially, not many photos surfaced.
We excitedly reached the city of Boston, stoked to be playing the somewhat legendary House Of Blues. We weren’t too sure what to expect, seeing as most chain venues in the UK are kinda shit holes. This place, however, was amazing.
The show was the best of the tour, for sure. The crowd reaction was great, and the stage and system were a dream to perform through. It was a shame the tour had come to an end, really. We had finally settled into the grooves of what had initially been a very new, and daunting experience.
Another venue full of friendly, and helpful staff - Something that is always a massive plus when you’re basically calling a dressing room your home for the day. The boys proceeded to get all kinds of drunk in a VIP tiikki bar backstage, and we even ended up on DKM’s bus. It was all pretty funny. Especially trying to escort a rather pissed Simon through the streets, away from the keen eyes of patrolling cops looking to fill the drunk tank on St. Paddys Day.
After a long, celebratory drive back to the hotel, we slept for about three hours, then headed back to New Jersey for our flight home.
The tour was seriously nothing short of amazing. We can’t thank everyone enough, especially all the boys in Dropkick. We are all eagerly awaiting our return to your beautiful country… Hopefully we’ll see y’all sometime in the Fall - you’ll hear it here first!
Back to that little island of ours, to hibernate. We’ll see you on our UK tour in a week or so. Until then.
