By March 8, 2014Personal Notes

image image image image imageI’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.

    I was still a kid when Delilah was a big hit. You weren’t even born then, yet you must have been playing it again with Him tonight! What a timewarp for me and so well done for you 🙂

    Hi Ben couldn’t help wonder why you didn’t warm to Moscow ?

      Hi George. It’s just one of those things I think? Sometimes you don’t connect with a country or it’s people. In all honesty there are a lot of things happening over there that I’m not a fan of but also I found the majority of people I met there to have somewhat negative energy, but without going into too much detail on a blog on my website I shall say that Russia and me just didn’t click. I should however point out that I did not see a lot of Russia but my first impressions of a place have always served me well in my decisions to embrace a country so far! Thanks for your interest and for visiting my site. BS.
