Jesse blogs from Mumfords tour 06 March 2013

Hey everyone,

I’m off on tour supporting Mumford & Sons today. It’s a very exciting way to spend some of our Keane time off! Still not 100% sure I can remember all the words and chords for the songs but hey. I’ve got my dear friends Phil, Jim and Alex playing with me for the first four shows and then I’m on my own for the rest of the tour and Deap Vally join as main support.

The first gig is tonight in Warsaw. It’s a beautiful city! We had a two day journey to get here. Six hours on a ferry and then an epic drive in a splitter van with our handsome driver Ian at the wheel. It was a good opportunity to re-watch A LOT of films and TV. FUBAR, Wilco: Ashes Of American Flags and District 9 plus Curb Your Enthusiasm, Brass Eye and Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

We also had a great night in Hanover mid journey. You can’t beat German beer. Next stop is Prague.
