What a great way to end my part of EuroHip 2007! We had lunch at The Hard Rock CafÃ©, took in the Heineken Experience, and then got ready for the show… and what a great show it was!!! During the pre-show gear set-up session, we chatted amongst ourselves about songs that we really wanted to hear. Judging by the setlist it looks like The Hip were listening.
The energy inside Paradiso is unlike any other venue. The building is alive and the fans and performers are extremely charged up as a result. If you’ve never been, make a point of going. If you’ve been there before, you know what I am talking about!

The first week of EuroHip 2007 was a great success – Trevor C, Dave and myself are all back in Canada now while the rest of the crew are carrying on for the balance of the tour.
To all of the new friends we made along the way, and the old friends we reunited with, thank you for making this another great experience.
…now I’m off to start clearing hard drive space to make room for all the footage we recorded.
