Rolling in to Edmonton

The bus – or convoy of buses we’re traveling in – is rolling into Edmonton now. Since we got to Winnipeg it has been brutally cold outside. Neptune’s one piece MEC snowsuit has really come in handy. I think it is snowing outside, but I can’t be sure…the darkly tinted windows on the bus are dirty and deceiving. They make every town look doomed. But I can be certain of one thing: the cold.

Today we’re at the Shaw Conference Center; where I remember I have been before for a Junos gala a few years ago. I wonder if we’re playing the same room? It would also be nice to go to a mall: someplace warm and indoors where Neptune could run around and I could shop for my Secret Santa.

Last post I promised pictures…I took a couple but haven’t uploaded them yet. Maybe my next blog will be photos only.

  2. You guys rocked in Edmonton; it’s been the first time we’ve seen you. Loved your intro and segue into Disclaimer. Your material outclassed your poor fellow tour band’s stuff. We felt a little out of place in the younger crowd, and we certainly could of stood to hear more of your band, but all in all a great evening. I had to laugh at the youngsters shivering outside for a between band smoke….today the roads here are a mess with lots of accidents…you know our pain…Hopefully a full tour of just the Dears will be through again in the near future in better weather. Read a good interview with Murray in Vue, or was it See…..Hope the rest of the tour goes well!
