Kazakhstan was a MADNESS. How did I get here!!??!! I LOVE IT! (I’ll be honest though, if it wasn’t for Borat I would not have known it existed!!)
So… we touch down at Almaty airport to find out every single bag had been left in Amsterdam and was not arriving until 11pm the day after the show, which was when we had our flight home! hahaha
So we went into full on improv mode! Hired a bunch of gear in, and somehow pulled off a miracle and had an incredible show! We brought Mikey out (camera don) and filmed a bunch of one-takes, this time focusing on my new bootleg “Hey Now” by London Grammar (check it out here). So nice to see people smiling and dancing to something they’d never heard before. I love the magic of music!
We had an awesome day exploring Almaty before the show. Went up this huge cable car to the top of a mountain where they had this sweet rollercoaster and some nice restaurants where I tried my first helping of horse meat! but I couldn’t handle the thought of eating a horse so I only had a taste!
A bunch of kids kept running up to me asking for my picture… and I was like…. Shit, how do they know me? I soon realised it was actually my stupid hair that they were fascinated by! Brilliant.
