I’m back once again, here to give you guys an update on the 2012 Narnia tour. (I’m a tad behind as we’ve been in the mountians for the past two days.)
We were picked up at Bills place, and in a frenzy we rushed around packing as little as possible for the trip to Zermatt. The trip was sure going to be intresting, driving our car onto a train and then said train going through a tunnle. Wow. After 20 minuets on the train we arrived in Zermatt to be taken to the The Omnia – Cavern by electric car. When I was told that we were going to be ‘inside’ a mountain I was unsure what to expect, sure enough we were truely, INSIDE the mountain, in a glass box to be exact. The glacial waters flowing beneath us was an amazing sight indeed. After we had a look around the amazing venue we were taken into our room, the ‘Directors suite’ talk about feeling like kings, this room was amazing. Just amazing.
I took the time before the gig to grab some footage of the guys wearing ski goggles and complimentary shower caps as they danced aroudnd the room. great days.
The time of the gig drew closer so we all headed down for the sound check, during the check the manager of the hotel asked the guys to play his favorite song “No Secret”.Not long after the sound check and mini preformance, the room began to fill up pretty quickly, it was clear that his was going to turn out a very good gig.
Towards the end the guys were begged for an encore, then another, and another. I’d call that a pretty big success
With the night over and all of us exhausted we made it back to the room and got some rest, looking forward to what we had been told was “the best breakfast ever” (And indeed it was.) With us all fed up we prepared for the next adventure, up a second mountain!
And now, a drawing by our own Bill Weir. Enjoy!
