Default Tracer European Summer Tour 2012 - Tour diary entry

I'm currently on tour in Europe with Tracer.

I'll try to post snippets from the road here, however the full tour diary + dates, will be over at my website: http://www.bjwok.com/

I'm also handling photo pass requests, so if any dates on the itinery are near you and you would like to shoot the show, drop me a email at tour@tracer-band.com

Here's the first tour diary entry:
We arrived in Germany at Frankfurt airport after +30 hours flying time, tired, hungover and full of lousy plane food, but stoked to be here!



First stop: a hotel in Köln for catch-up sleep, before driving to the Netherlands for a visit to the record label.

Cool Green Recordings is situated in Berkel, Rodenrijs, just outside Rotterdam.



We had a beautiful lunch with Wouter (Promotions) of steak and salad before Mike opened his guitars to check how they travelled.

Not so well.





I got my hands on the all important photo pass lanyards - who needs guitars when you have this many lanyards! Hahaha!



Meanwhile, outside the other guitars were checked - all ok! Phew!!

That's the third time that guitar has broken in transit and always in the same spot! It's a dud now.

Yeah man I'll be at all shows shooting

Travelogue is really excellent! Makes one feel "acquainted" with the band!

Thanks Dwight, will try to post updates as they come to hand, but it's hard to keep it up to date with all the shows
