We left Paris at 1 am to drive all the way to Montpellier. Drive was probably the longest so far, like 750 km, but thanks to good motorways in France, we all were able to sleep propely through the whole drive. I woke up in sunny Montpellier around noon and grabbed my stuff from my bunk and entered the venue. This time I was able to find the right door pretty fast so I didn't have to circle the venue like I usually end up doing. Weather was pretty close of being perfect with temperatures just slightly above 20 degrees Celsius and with slight cooling southern breeze. Me like big time! Too bad that this time the venue is rather far away from city center and also the Mediterranean sea was few kilometers away. That ment no sightseeing for today. We had quick walk around the neighborhood and found this huge bicycle shop! I was like a child in candy shop, but Urski and Ville weren't sharing my enthusiamism!
Niilo decided to act as a rock star and came to sound check at least 3,5 minutes late and at the dinner he ate all the available puddings so nothing was left for the opening act. Seriously bad ass rock star! I wonder when is asking for his own dressing room, because the signs are there!
This Victorie 2 venue is absolutely great! Stage is really good and also sounded great! Backstage area is really nice and clean. Quite the opposite one compared to for example the one in London's Underworld. Our show was quite good as well. Just a few minor fuck up's but nothing major. Montpellier proved itself to be a quite good city for playing metal shows. We'll be back for sure! Now it's time to reward your self with few drinks and go out and meet the fans. Thank you Montpellier!
