The next three days we are in Canada, today at the Medley in Montreal.
This night we had to cross the border, when we arrived there some kind of accident just happened, a truck was laying on its side and was going up in flames.
Nevertheless all of us had to show up at the immigration officer, answer stupid questions like if i was ever arrested and stuff like that. What a useless bullshit and waste of time and money.
Anyway, at the Medley we did another good show, I had an Midas XLR3 to work with which is still one of the preferred desks.

Today's show is in the Imperial Theater, Quebec City.
A very beautiful venue, very nice PA (EV linearray, very competent monitor engineer, very good catering, 5! showers, so a very nice day it was indeed.
The only negative thing that happened was an argument I had with the house FOH engineer, Jones(?). At the end of the Epica show I like to push the faders to make a big finale. Some red clipping lights went on, he was asking me to turn down the volume. I refused, and he turned down the volume himself. That got me very upset. After the show I complained to the promoter, who was very nice and promised to talk to his boss about it.

Today is our last Canadian show, in the Funhouse, Toronto
First we stopped at the city center plaza, in front of the municipal building. Very beautiful plaza, with water, a fountain, and nice sunshine. Erwin, Coen an me found a Starbuck on the corner, and we sat there for a while watching the people go by.
Then we drove a mile or so to the Funhouse. Rich, the local sound guy, was very nice and helpful but for the rest it was a real shitty place. I had a 24 input Midas Verona, and I seemed to be the first one to utilize all 24 inputs ;-) Also Rich had to go out and buy a bunch of XLR cables, because he didn't have enough. One good thing was the Thai restaurant next door, where I had a nice dinner.
That's it for now, more photo's as allways at:
