Pyramids, Prairies and Plenty of carry on!

Another US tour with Old Blind Dogs has come to an end. We’re finally back home and licking or wounds. Some of us, literally! 2 and 1/2 weeks, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. Oh aye, a wee stop off in Vegas was also had. We saw rain in California, snow in Arizona, stayed in a pyramid in Vegas, saw miles of nothing in New Mexico, and struggled to breath in Colorado. It’s been an interesting tour. Especially playing in 3 states that are higher than Yo than the top of Ben Nevis. This isn’t good for the Pipes. They hate it. They absolutely hate it. The tuning goes mental and they take a lot more lung power to play. Despite these places being cool to visit, they’re not the best fun for performing. Well, for playing pipes.

We decided that we would visit Vegas for the night on our way to New Mexico. It was as tacky, glorious, sad, weird, as you might imagine. We stayed in the Luxor Pyramid, which was cool. Visited Dublin, Paris, New York and Venice all in one night. Lost some money, drunk a lot, stared a lot, laughed a lot, had oxygen at an oxygen bar, lost more money, slept very little, then ran away! Was it good……..I’m still pondering that!

Anyway, a massive thank you to all the lovely people that came to the dogs gigs, bought CDs, raffle tickets, hung out, dined with us, and shared many drinks and laughs.

Until next time …….!

  1. Hey Ali, I’m glad Heidi and I could be part of the tour experience again. You know we can’t wait till the next go round. Like we said before should be our turn to tour Scotland and share a few pints. Until we meet again my Friend.
    Scott and Heidi
