Show Day: Cologne - Kolnarena, Show One
There's a sign in the elevator that reads "Hiss for Hogs". On our way down to the lobby this morning, Joe & I gave it a go, but none showed up.
Flew to Cologne from Stockholm and straight into the gig at the very smart new 'Kolnarena'. The show looked great in here, with a very rowdy audience which made for a highly enjoyable evening. We are staying about an hour's drive outside of Cologne at a Schloss (castle) which sits amid acres of dense forest. There's a big stone terrace veranda type area overlooking the lake where we gathered under the stars for some late night drinks. It ain't all bad on the road.
