A Postcard from Simon W (Atlanta) August 22nd, 2012
We all love Atlanta and having been here 3 times in the past 18 months, it almost feels like home. It’s the third time I’ve played with the band at Chastain Amphitheatre, which is a fantastic open air venue, and we also played a much smaller club venue last April. Atlanta has such a amazing atmosphere and I always seem to meet great people here. A couple of hours before last night’s show I was sat in a restaurant near to the venue watching the rain pour down. There is no roof at Chastain, so I was fearing the worst……but just before we went on stage the sky cleared and all was fine! There was a great vibe all round and it ended up being one of my favourite shows on this tour. Not long to go now until the end of the “All You Need Is Now” tour!………I wonder what’s next??
Maybe Duran has to now include a sax song on the new album just so Simon W can be on the next tour! Still jealous and mad Detroit was not even on this tour! What's up--we give Duran a lot of love!! lol
