fall headlining

As a representative of, I had the privilege of joining The Head and The Heart on the UK portion of their most recent jaunt through Europe, supporting My Morning Jacket (with a couple of headline shows interspersed). 5 shows in 6 nights in 5 different cities, each magical in its own way. Here’s my tour recap:

Wow, these guys tour hard. Watching the band on the road only affirmed for me how dedicated these six individuals, whose music we’ve all come to love, are to their craft. They gave 100% of themselves at every show, and powered through jet lag, exhaustion from the road, and occasional sound issues to offer a killer performance each night, and all without ever losing their upbeat attitudes and their willingness to connect to their fans. Multiple times, I watched Josiah, forehead dripping sweat after a heartfelt and energetic set, stop to kneel down at the side of the stage and shake the hand of a new European fan, ask them their name and thank them genuinely for coming out to see the band. It’s those kinds of moments that represent everything I love about this band.

Night 1 :: 11.3.11 :: Birmingham
My first show of the European tour. Flew in that morning from NYC. Strange experience seeing THATH as an opener after an amazing sold-out fall headlining tour back home. And what gives with these European show times!! Doors at 6, THATH at 7pm?!?! Guess I was going to have to skip the pre-show dinner for a few nights to make it on time. Small but appreciative crowd at the HMV Institute show. Was right along the rail between Kenny and Charity. Some minor sound issues during the set (I heard the band wasn’t even given time to sound check) but that did not deter them from putting on a strong short-but-sweet opening set. What a great moment being across the ocean and hearing Charity belt out “rivers til I reach you” at the end of a great version of R&R.

Setlist – Cats & Dogs, Couer d’Alene, Sounds Like Hallelujah, Ghosts, Lost in My Mind, Down in the Valley, Rivers & Roads.
