Hi Dem - I read the text and I feel sorry for Lycabettus. It's not the year of the Greek, is it ? Even King Otto lost his crown with 3 defeats in Austria/Switzerland. But I want you to feel optimistic for Terra Vibe. I've been to Dublin and Manchester, two totally different venues and I must say that I preferred the fat but crystal clear sound of the open air venue in Dublin to the rather smooth sound of the Opera House. In the Opera House on Tuesday you almost couldn't hear Javier Mas instruments and Javier's playing surely makes the difference while I would abandon the Hammond keyboard, I hate that thing. Also in Dublin there were these two big screens to both sides of the stage where you could see more details of Leonard and the musician as let's say row Q in the opera house. Of course I enjoyed both venues, I didn't expect the opera house to be so small and wooden inside. It's an old historic building and I am glad that I made it there, knowing that I was born and raised in a 750 people village with cows and pigs. Only myself singing on that stage could top it, but I am on my way. One of the Dublin press wrote about the audience being mostly on the wrong side of 50. That means I have the borderline syndrome right now. And Leonard ? As mentioned in so many articles by so many fans now, as soon as he enters the stage you simply feel happy. He could read the menu of some Burger restaurant and you would fall in love with that. Only to see him smile gives you pure shiver down the spine. That guy really has it. I am not sure anymore, if I will ever find out about his trick.
IT'S DARKER NOW
