The full fly tower was able to store our entire sound shell which was in the early stages of being flown back up into the ceiling as we packed down the stage. Truly state of the art and a pleasure to play in for our first gig on Chinese soil. The audience was a fair size (approx. 250) - they had paid between NZ$25 and ...

Today journey ends up with little stress because of bad traffic and parking problems but anyway tonight we meet some new friends arriving from Australia and Malaysia. So the rest of the journey will be more fun!
