Well here we are getting ready to do the last show of the tour in Mexico City!
Last night was filled with excitement as we played the Auditorium Nationale in Mexico City. This is an arena size hall that looks like a huge theater. The architecture is stunning. We play there again tonight to end the “Crazy Love” tour. We could tell that the sound was going to be quite nice as we started with “In the Air Tonight”. And we were all a little nervous for Polo who had been practicing his Spanish all day. As our newest member this would be his first time speaking in any language (including English) during our opening set. He spoke about 3 or 4 times and we think he did a great job from the response, but I guess we’ll really know when someone from the audience that night tells us. So please do… anyone in Mexico City! We really had a good time, although the altitude (7000 ft) knocked us out :-). I tried to pace myself, but I was too excited myself. Thanks for the love and thunderous applause when we left the stage.
When we returned with Michael…
Yes, we made it to the B stage. It was difficult and I thought we may not get there, but MB seemed determined to make it. Like I said before; it is nothing but fun trying to get through the crowd. Once we got there, it was really intimate and a wonderful surprise for every person who suddenly had a front row seat. Priceless!
After the show, we were a little disappointed that we didn’t get a chance to sign or sell cds. This means we didn’t get a chance to meet people like we did in Monterrey which would have been the icing on the cake. That’s when we would have had a chance to ask about our Spanish and the performance in general. Not our choice, just wasn’t possible. Hopefully something will change tonight on this last show.
You know I’ll let you know before I get on that plane back home…
It’s been 20 months of touring and this is it!
Talk to you later and I do mean later!
Roger, over and out!
