29 Jan, 2014 Helsinki. Stockholm. Oslo. Copenhagen.
I like to experience the cold northern winter weather, almost as much as I like the sunny southern climates. I like the extremes. I like the big arena type gigs we did at the end of last year. But I also like the current run of smaller shows.
On Monday in Helsinki, it was certainly below zero outside, nevertheless it felt a bit like a Finnish sauna under the stage lights. More extremes, I guess. And these are truly smart cities, within beautiful countries. It is evident, likewise it is a real pleasure for us to have the opportunity to play here. That was the case when we first came to visit back in the late ’70’s. It is still the case. Thanks to all in Scandinavia who still support Simple Minds.
