Absolutley loving being back on the road again here in the States. Last night we played in Pontiac which is always a special one for me being from Detroit. Thanks and love to all those who came out for the show, and indeed for all the other ones we have played so far.
Me and the rest of the crew are on the tour bus now heading to Toronto for the show tonight at the Mod Club Theatre. Really looking forward to it.
