Mátè told me that Mike and Dave would come to Bielefeld on November 4th 2017. OZZY!!!!!!!! We have to go!!!!! Can we go? Ozzy and I are going. It’s easy cos it’s a saturday. Mark will take care of Roos. Thanks again Máté for letting me know. What to do without you?!
Mark was supposed to drop me off at the train station, but he was running with my brother still. I dropped myself off by car, Mark would pick it up later. My mum stayed with Roos (I became a mummy in the meantime, that’s why it’s been so long that I’ve been to a gig).
At 1:30 I took the train from Hillegom to Rotterdam. About an hour later I arrived there. I bought myself and Ozzy a Starbucks. Then I left the station to Ozzy’s car. Oz was waiting for me.
Now it’s 610km to the venue freund & Kupferstecher in Stuttgart. That’s about 6 hours drive. Let’s go, we’re ready.
Terry told me that Mike is coming to Belgium in August. He will come to the festival “Feest in het Park”. Hopefully I can go, as I will be on a holiday from July11th till August 11th. The festival is from August 21st till 24th. SWEET!!! I can go. The exact date is not known yet.
A few weeks later they announced that Mike would play on Friday the 22nd. I asked time off from work. Maybe I didn’t need to, but I didn’t know what time Mike would be on. I got the friday off work. While I was on holiday in South Africa, I contacted Mike and asked him if he could sort Ozzy and me out. Mike replied and told me that he would, but I had to remind him closer to the date. Exactly one week before the festival the timetable got announced. Mike won’t be on until 11pm. I didn’t actually need time off, but it’s nice to actually relax on that day. I also sent another message to Mike to remind him that Ozzy and I would still like to go. Mike replied that he will tell the promotor. The day before the gig I received a reply from Mike that we’re on the door.
Máté told me that Mike would be playing in Cologne. I’ve seen Mike there 2 years ago. It’s only 2 ½ hours drive.
Ozzy and I are going. But the same day is Kingsday in Holland. It’s the birthday of our king we’re celebrating. His actual birthday is on April 27th, but that is a sunday this year, and out of respect for people who go to church on a sunday they don’t celebrate on Sunday’s, they celebrate it that year on a saturday instead. That’s the case this year. We only have a king since April 30th 2013. he took over the throne from his mum (game of Thrones) We used to celebrate Queensday on April 30th, this year the date changed. I need to wear orange, otherwise I’ll look stupid in Amsterdam. That means I will have to wear orange to Mike’s gig too. I am not going home first. Sorry lovely German people.
Monique and I go to London for the weekend. We go shopping. It’s our ladies weekend, as our man are on a lads weekend in Budapest. Flight and hotel were already booked.
Then Moricz Mate told me that Mike will be playing in London in The Old Queens Head on April 18th. While I was updating my website, I discovered that we would be in London as well. I was very excited, I’m going.
I saw on Facebook that Mike would DJ on Eristoff Urban Art Forms Festival this year. It is in Graz, in Austria. is it do-able for us Oz? I think I’m still not sure if it is. It’s an 11 hours drive, 12 hours as we stopped a few times. But I’m sure it’s worth it. Mike said in Amsterdam “Let’s hang out for a bit, it’s going to be a long journey for you.”
I saw a message on facebook on June 3rd from de Melkweg. Mike is coming to Amsterdam. He will do a DJ set. FINALLY! Last time he was here for a gig was 2008. 5 years ago, with the Streets. Ted will sort us out again. My boyfriend Mark, his friend Eric and the famous master Ozzy will join me.
