I’m sitting on a train traveling back home writing this after having just done a one off show with Sir Tom Jones on the 8th March 2014 in Moscow, Russia. Actually only the second show Tom has done in 2014. It was such a great pleasure to play and spend time with the legendary singer again after a break of 18 months since the last show I did with him in Dallas, Texas.
Moscow which I’d never travelled to before this show, was an interesting place. I can safely say I would not want to travel back there for anything other than a tour but I had a blast and was put up in an incredibly swanky luxury hotel/village which is never a bad thing in my book!
The band for this gig consisted of some of the finest musicians I know and we had a great time performing and having fun on and off stage as I always do with these great people.
I hope to upload some video footage soon of some of our performances. Keep a look out for this in the coming weeks.
It’s about time for some sleep now. See ya at a show soon.
