Wow! It's only Tuesday, yet it has been a crazy week for us! First let me apologize about the fact that I'm a day late with this blog entry, but yesterday was so hectic that I simply didn't have time. So what happened?
As many of you might know we had a gig with the Finnish teen sensation Robin yesterday at the Peacock-theater at Linnanmäki (Amusement park in Helsinki). It was a sold-out show, which meant that a thousand people were cheering at the top of their lungs. We also did an episode for a Finnish TV program called "Summeri", like I said it was a busy day! :)
The day started when we first arrived at the Peacock-Theater in the morning, and I have to say it was so nice to open the door to this big room and see that everything from the instruments to the lighting were all set up for us. And there was this huge led-screen behind the stage blinking "Satin Circus" in all the different colors and animations. Since everything was set up and the catering looked so tempting, we decided to start the day with a nice breakfast on the sunny rocks of Linnanmäki.
As we were halfway through our soundcheck the camera crew from YLE rushed in. We were supposed to do an interview for a youth TV-show called "Summeri", but since they were a bit early, they decided to film the rest of our soundcheck too. Usually we take the soundcheck a bit easier but since there was a camera crew filming us for the TV, we put on the full show. It must have been the most intense soundcheck those sound engineers have ever seen! :D
So after the check we headed to the amusement park to do the interview. Now, could you imagine a more perfect place for Satin Circus to do an interview than an amusement park? Me neither. So for a few hours we went around Linnanmäki doing the interview, went to the roller coasters and merry-go-rounds, played the amusement park games and had such a fun and relaxed time despite the fact that we were filmed for the whole time.
And the gig itself! It was amazing! 1000 people going crazy in this packed room, the light show and the led-screen! One of the best gigs so far :)
After the gig we spent some time with Robin and his crew. He's such a nice guy and we had some great fun with him. We also went out to see our fans, to write autographs and so on. It was so nice to once again see so many people who were so thrilled about us and our music. Thank you so much to all our fans (Popsters)!!! You guys keep us going! <3
This morning we had a couple of meetings already, and there are some big things ahead! But that's another story… ;D
Enjoy the summer!
