Fall Tour 2016 - it's a wrap!

We were on the road for 46 days and played 31 concerts in 30 cities. We drove 12.000km and played our harts out every single night! Thanks so much to everybody who came out to see us! Some of you drove for 5 hours just to see us play. Some of you saw us much more than just 1 time this tour. Thanks for you all to support live music!!! Thank you to all the promoters, local crews, cooks who made our dinners! Thanks to everyone who took picures and wrote wonderful words about us!
(Even though this is not a Grammy speech) Thank you Patricia Vonne - yes, we are rockstars! and Mr. "I can turn down the amp if that's better for you" LaRoche - I love you guys! Harmen... you know it all, Stau-brother!
A big thank you also goes out to the wonderful people at Paiste cymbals - Joerg Kohlmorgen and Christian Wenzel - and Ludwig drums - Edwin Kas and Oliver Schelling - That's the sound of rock n' roll! Loud, causing discomfort, cause I am not afraid to do so!

I love you all!
