We’ve moved on to the production part of rehearsing - lots of big gear around, lots of new people arriving. For us in the Gabriel band, it’s fun to greet some of the technicians we were touring with a year ago.
And gearing up for productions involves some things other than just rehearsing the music.
Here are some shots of various band members posing for… well, we don’t know exactly what… but it’s all fun!
More rehearsing, but onstage now… as they work out the lighting and production around us. Of course I won’t focus on any of the production elements yet - don’t want to spoil the experience for anyone.
Perhaps I’ve given the impression that it’s all work.
That’s not the case!
These pictures are from the last week or so of rehearsals. We also had time to look around Columbus a bit.
And for me that means taking some photos.
Meanwhile, back at the hotel… I don’t know what the others have been doing mornings and nights, but I’ve been signing books! My new poetry book arrived from the printer - lots of them - and it’s my plan to autograph them all, then ship out to the online store fullfillment.
So the hotel room looks like this:
If you’d like to check out the book, it’s being sold at my new online storefront - probably they’ll have the books by next Thursday, but you can also pre-order before that.
Back to rehearsals:
Only a few days left before the first show of the tour.
