Mike Skinner Cologne 2014

Cologne, Germany, 26 April 2014

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 it’s the same day as 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.

Cologne, Germany, 3 March 2012

The doors opened at 10 and after waiting for 1 ½ hour we got in, we got a lovely orange t-shirt, nice for queensday people said, but it’s my 4th orange t-shirt, so I have enough – nice t-shirt to sleep in! I bought a docking station for my iPhone.
