Polish death metal icons VADER have recently concluded their “Blitz South America In Fire Tour 2015”. Now the band has issued the tour blog for the days 19-20., read below:
Day 19: Cali – Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek
To the next show in city of Cali we traveled by van. „Junk Mercedes” disappeared …. good 😉
There were no mountains, so we expected 250 km long trip to be not more then 3 hours drive. Wrong! We were traveling squeezed like chips in a box, with our backs twisted and with no AC (if open windows is not a kind of that) for …7 hours! Then it was classic: soundcheck , hotel and – this time pretty late show. Telling the truth all was running so quick to me this evening. I was totally exhausted after all the travels in last days. I just remember that the show was good, though I hear completely nothing on stage. Colombian Fans were great indeed! SALUT \m/
Day 20: Medellin – James Stewart:
We arrived at the hotel in Medellin after travelling through the night from Cali. After dropping our bags in the rooms we headed straight upstairs to the rooftop restaurant for breakfast. I was too tired to eat but I did enjoy watching Daniel and Halik try to explain to the waitress that spoke no English that they were hungry and would like some food. After some rest we headed to the venue for set up and soundcheck. The backline was excellent and the local crew were easily one of the best on the tour though we still had the obligatory technical issues that meant we finished around 30 minutes after the first band were meant to start. Of course now our preparation time was cut very short, so we went back to the hotel for about 90 minutes to nap, shower, take a coffee and a very short warm-up and then returned to the venue. The show was totally crazy! There were so many people in such a small venue all coming out to support Vader and the scene. We cannot thank you enough and we shall certainly be returning! After another late finish we returned to the hotel to rest and prepare for the final leg of the tour – Mexico….
