We've been hitting it pretty hard so forgive the consolidated entry.
We've so lucky that at the end of our long travel days we've been greeted by such enthusiastic, awe inspiring audiences.
I'm running out of superlativesas as you might imagine.
The Wellington show was another sold out house and a lot of fun.
We played a different place than last time because of venue availability but the St James is a lovely, ornate theatre with three tiers.
You could hear them singing up in the rafters.
The people made us feel like they were really pleased to have us back and we were thrilled to be there.
I'm constantly blown away and extremely flattered to see three, sometimes four, generations of Hook fans out there.
I think it's lovely that Hook's music brings their families together.
The Bay Park Arena was also sold out.
We had 3,000 folks in that room and it sounded and felt like it.
They kept getting up to dance in the aisles, in their seats, wherever there was room to move.
The ushers did their best to subdue them but they were having none of it.
It somehow stayed controlled tho, with no rowdiness.
Those that chose not to get up, stayed in their seats but sang their asses off.
From ages 7 to 70 they knew all the words and let us know it.
I've said it before but when I finally call it a (very long) day it will be because of the traveling and having to be away from home.
These sold out houses and 'back by popular demand' tours sure do make it attractive tho and worth whatever it takes to accomplish.
We have one final NZ tonight in Auckland.
Yes, also SOLD out I'm verleased to say.
Can you blame me for pushing myself to the max?
No, of course you can't.
Six shows in Australia coming up after this.
A long day.
Auckland to Melbourne, Melbourne to Darwin, arriving at midnight
Obviously it's a night off. ~
