Next Saturday night woop!!

So for those there in 2007 remember the acoustics and the lovely piano?? Think we will get any special songs on the piano...............unplayed piano maybe??!

oh and thanks Chrysler for shattering my illusions of Switzerland!

I tried and tried last time to find good black market tickets and just couldn't - so I wrote it off as a perfect society where that sort of distorted thing just doesn't happen.....only to now hear!!! LOL

guess no one or no town or country is perfect!

see those going soon!

Switzerland is where all the money is being washed before its hung up in some other country to dry

I did not make an recording of the Colours of Ostrava gig. It was entirely filmed for the big screens - maybe damiens management will make this avail like the other festivals recording recently. *fingers crossed*. Some Marketing for the yet to come new album...

oh my on the greek - nice memory!!! wow!!!

be careful on the rules here............if memory serves correct they were very rigid - go figure in the land of the birkin bag as my wife referenced this town lol! but no drinks etc inside the venue and stuff like that..........and little rebate tokens to return glass and cans!!

anyhoo absolutely..................we get in lucerne on thursday mid day cruising lake lucerne on friday mt pilatus on sat am and then damo............we bolt first thing sun am for southern Italy and my first foray into that country - soooo excited for that!!!!

the coty in dca doesn't want to go to the "meet the artist" deal so have two throw away tix on that - anyone just pm me and I can leave for you at the front desk of this hotel we are staying at for you to pick up - could be damo or could be someone random - they won't tell - I just don't see how it would be damo given it is right before the gig......we are at the Hotel Grand National which is just on the other side of the lake looking at the kkl - about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the venue.

if anyone wants to hook up prior happy to...............on the day of happy to host in a lovely bar / terrace this hotel has and as I mentioned to glo happy to subsidize for the large prices there as a little payback for all the ruckus I have caused around here over the years (plus my latina wife will want to stay around the hotel as much as possible due to a certain 14 year old who will be hanging at the hotel - and who just broke his wrist this weekend right in advance of the trip...............an inauspicious start to DCA's European Vacation lol )....................but yes would ask to head this way due to the kid and basically happy to make it a good eve all around

unless of course we end up at like 50?!!! 10 - 15 no problema......................

Hello Lucerne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget to wear sunscreen when you're on lake Lucerne

Amazing venue... (one of the reasons I wanted to go to this gig as well actually)

Yay! Have a great trip!

You get them for the original price (80 chf each), although I paid more on ebay

(Somehow I ended up with 3 tickets. Long story...)
I can send them to you or we can meet in Lucerne on the day of the gig.

I'll be in row 9!

David, I actually prefer his solo gigs. It's amazing to see how he doesn't need anything but his voice and his guitar (or piano) ... Seems much more intense.

For the tickets, please contact me: ticketsfordamien@gmail.com
Im on the balcony. any chance if you didnt managed to sell the tickets to stick around with you?

my plane arrives at 8am in zurich. i should be in luzern by 11ish i guess

see you guys tommorow

Hi again
I don't know... David suggested meeting at his hotel, I think... And I believe some people from Italy are coming together...
I actually don't know any of you, so I won't recognize anyone
I was just going to see what the day brings. (I'll only arrive in the afternoon and have to leave the next morning.)

Well... I'll be the slightly shy girl wearing far to much clothes, very long hair, melting away in the Swiss sunshine.
