First show is in Tampere, a 2 hour drive away from Helsinki in rush hour traffic in November in a country we don't know. Fuck that, change planes and fly there...cos we're balla, son!

We got off the plane at Helsinki for our transfer to Tampere, I checked the flight details and saw we'd be flying on something with an unpronouncable name, something like "Aerospatula". I saw one out of the window and pointed it out to Chis, "Dude, that's what we're flying to Tampere in", said I. At this point Chis - who isn't a fan of flying - answered "Fuck off, I'm not getting on that" and came over all Mr T, "...ain't gettin on no plane fool!" He calmed down when we told him there would be booze at the other end of the flight. So we jumped on the "Aero-spatula" and flew off to Tampere. We were all massively relieved to see our gear being loaded on to the plane whilst we were on the tarmac waiting to board, especially Chis who described loading his 1976 vintage Gibson Thunderbird bass in to the check in at Heathrow like sending your kid off on its first day of school haha.

A short flight later and we were in Tampere, possibly the smallest airport I've seen that wasn't a landing strip, it made East Midlands Airport look like Schipol.
