The "Satisfaction Guaranteed" Australian Tour has been quite different from previous visits. We have performed mainly in theatres, similar to the Sweet/Slade tours in the UK, with a few Entertainment Centres thrown in for good measure and quite frankly I don't miss the usual sweaty rock clubs from the "Bar-room Blitz" days. I know this is going to sound like a bit of a cliche, especially coming from a man of my age but it's almost as if we've grown up. The shows have been amazing, the audience reaction fantastic as usual and though it has been mind-bendingly hectic we have loved every minute. I would just like to say that the crew, Damian, Adam and Sean have stood on the shoulders of giants and have made our life so much easier than it could have been. Special thanks to Tour Manager, Jason for making every situation stress free, all dealt with aplomb. So there you have it - I'm sitting in the Emirates lounge at Sydney International watching the rain, yes it does rain here and wondering why we couldn't have had some of it during the Ashes Tests recently. I love this country and discover new things with every visit. We will return. Andy.
