Post subject:  KT Week in the UK!!!

Hi folks: On my way to the UK (changing planes in Chicago at the moment) for 5 KT shows in 7 days: Cambridge, Southampton, Ipswich, Wolverhampton ,and London. Staying at B&B's along the way. I'll try to keep a running diary on this thread for my fellow American, otherwise normal and well-adjusted, KT nut jobs. Can't wait :smt023

Day 1, Cambridge: It was a virtual blizzard at Heathrow Airport when I finally got my rental car and started off on David's Big Adventure! Highway driving, even on the wrong side of the road, is pretty easy in the UK. Got to love those multiple lanes in the same direction! It’s the single lane local roads and right hand turns that are an adventure. Snow stopped and the sun came out just before Cambridge. A good omen for tonight. Slept a few hours and just finished a late lunch. KT in 4 hours! :smt023

Day 2, Southampton: Well, my friends, last night was memorable…if for no other reason that I nabbed a set list and KT signed it for ST after the show. I’m so good to my fellow Seattleites! A few highlights. Sam is looking older and Arnulf grew a biker mustache. Oh the music? After 13 KT concerts (17 after this week) on two continents, I feel I’ve earned the right to share a few thoughts keeping in mind, of course, we’re talking about the most talented singer/songwriter/musician on the planet at the moment. Besides, we Americans always give our opinions when no one asks or cares! As my pals no doubt recall, I’ve had a difficult time warming up to the backup singers since they came aboard. Maybe if the three of us went out for drinks together…. I know, it’s my problem and I really should talk it out with a professional. Seriously, while they do add depth to several songs especially from Drastic Fantastic, I cannot understand why KT has them performing on others. I’m sure they’re wonderful gals and I wish them all the success in the world, but they should sit out the acoustic version of Universe & U, for example. It simply cannot be improved! Let’s not even go to “Throw Me a Rope.” Also, the mixing, especially of backup vocals, seems inconsistent from show to show. It may have something to do with the acoustics of the different venues, but there’s more to it. I just don’t know the technical lingo to describe it any better. Today… a bit of work, fix a flat tire (no kidding), sightseeing, and then KT (again) in Southampton. I guess I’ll keep going. I told KT last night I’m here this week representing the hopes and dreams of Team America. She is truly appreciative…as always. We’re all lucky to have crossed paths with her in this lifetime. Her talent is eclipsed only by her class and sincerity. :smt023

Did I read that correctly?? A set list signed for me?? David - YOU ROCK!
Thank you so much!!
All right, now that I've picked myself up off the floor, I can finish reading your post.

Hmm, I'll be interested to hear how you find the backing vocals over the next few gigs. I do agree that there are some songs that I want to hear only KT, but for the most part, I have liked the addition of Cat and Gita (haven't heard Ami live yet) to the live shows. We'll have to compare notes after Portland.

Keep us posted...
