The Into Darkness Tour, featuring PAIN, MOONSPELL, SWALLOW THE SUN, LAKE OF TEARS and SCAR OF THE SUN played in Berlin (Germany) on November 19th and Pain’s Michael Bohlin has issued the following update:
We arrived in Hellraiser venue in Leipzig around 10am and i went out of the bus to get some air. Shit, it was freeeeeezing!!! And when they let us inside the venue it was exactly the same temperature as outside, in the catering, backstage, toilets, showers, everywhere! Welcome to another day in paradise.
We didn’t soundcheck today either as “someone” didn’t wake up until 6pm! No names, but this is the same “someone” that caused the “no soundcheck” yesterday as well. If we wouldn’t have the In-Ear systems and digital console, this would not have been possible. Anyway, it was a long and cold day and it looked funny when people wear jackets, gloves and hats at dinner…
I think this was the third time i played this venue, at least. I remember we had a very good show here last year and this time was no exception. But i don’t think we ever got this many people in this particular venue before! But today we have to do soundcheck. At least i hope we do. Well, i’m gonna soundcheck today, even if i have to do it alone!
Tonight we are in Hamburg, tomorrow in Saarbrücken, Friday in Stuttgart, Saturday in Bochum and Sunday in Tilburg. Then the tour is over and we go back home to Sweden to lick our wounds on Monday. Friday will be a big day for me.
