Player Down Under

As we come into the home stretch of the Aussie Player tour this week, it’s safe to say they have hit a home run with every performance and the fans can’t seem to get enough of them. There have been such a diversity with the audiences that attended the past shows. Women are coming with their moms, grandmothers and husbands to the shows and seem to really enjoy every moment of  not only Player, but Ronn’s playful interaction with them before he brings Player on stage. There has been a lot of laughter, dancing and photos after the shows. Long lines have formed for the purchase of merchandise and photos with Ronn and the band.

Last night the stage was filled with women from age 20-80 dancing to their encore and it’s amazing to watch how much fun everyone is having on this tour. We have had a hectic week of traveling between Coffs Harbour, Twin Towns and Campbelltown and back to Sydney for much needed rest. Peter was starting to lose his voice the past few days and poor Jimmy had a stomach bug from something he ate, but they pulled off amazing concerts nevertheless. With only three more shows left in this tour, we head to MacKay and Hornsby later this week and then it will be time to say goodbye to one of our most memorable trips.

We have all made some new amazing friends and the tour crew couldn’t have been more wonderful. It has truly been an experience of a lifetime to explore this beautiful country and the people here. So now that OZ has gotten to know Ronn a bit better and has been introduced to Player, it’s probably in the cards that we will someday return to OZ to rock out once again. I know next week is Thanksgiving for our friends back home and want to wish them a happy Turkey day. Speaking of turkey, we saw a few live ones walking around our hotel. We also saw these creatures called, “water dragons” that hang out like pets everywhere.  The boys freaked out over a huge snake crossing the road on our way back from Twin Towns and we learned even though it was huge, it wasn’t dangerous. It seems OZ has a lot of creatures that we just don’t have in America and alot of things that could be deadly. They also have creatures that look deadly, but aren’t. So I guess you just can’t judge a book by it’s cover around these Aussies.

There are pristine gorgeous beaches in northern Australia, but we had no time to spend on them due to soundchecks and three shows in a row. I did manage to visit one in Coffs Harbour briefly for a photo. Today Ronn and I actually saw the pool in our hotel for the first time in three weeks and did absolutely nothing. It was a good day to just rest and chill out after so much traveling the past few days. We were happy to see Player Angel, Eden join us last night and she was able to help me get the fans dancing onstage at the end of the night. I made our sound engineer Andrew an honorary Player Angel because he’s been the one I’ve hung out with the most during the tour and I now call him, “Girlfriend.” I do anticipate a growing number of Player Angels will be forming now and will have those Player T-shirts available on Ronn’s website soon!

 

An Aussie Adventure

 

 

It’s hard to believe we are half way through the tour and our Aussie Adventure has been so amazing. The fans have been responding so positively at all of the shows and standing in line for hours for photos and autographs. They also seem to love the questions and answers from Ronn and the behind the scenes clips. There hasn’t been much down time the past couple weeks for Ronn with all the press, but now we have a couple of days to relax and regroup here in Sydney. So tonight we are going to see the group YES in concert and later this week we will have a private tour of the zoo.

 The band has become tighter as a whole and the venues and stages have been so nice. I shot a lot of great video footage and wanted to share some highlights with you here. The boys are having a blast, having been eating quite well and obviously enjoying their Aussie adventure. It’s been weird for me being the only female hanging out with them and some of the things I hear coming out of their mouths having been so comical. I can’t wait for Eden to get here so I have another Player Angel to hang out at the shows with. Since the shows have been nearly filled to capacity, I have been sitting in the sound booth with our engineer Andrew, who I call my girlfriend. I’m so use to being up close front and center, but these Aussie women are so enthusiastic about the shows, that it hasn’t been possible for me to get that privilege so far. I don’t mind and have been having a blast watching the love shown to them. It’s been a dream for me to show you guys firsthand what I see all the time in our garage during rehearsals. Our Aussie adventure will continue and I will try and keep you up to date with more photos and videos along the way.

It’s strange being on the other side of the world where it’s summer in November and we are seeing Christmas decorations out, but it feels like July heat to us. And we are missing another Thanksgiving back home this year. All in all we are in major gratitude for all the love and affection you guys are showing us online and in person everywhere we go and sending you the love right back!
