DOMMIN IN THE UK- DAY OFF & DAY 4

Posted on February 6, 2010

As DOMMIN continue their trek up and down the UK with Lacuna Coil, frontman Kris continues his tour diary for Roadrunner UK

Day off

Today was a much needed day of vocal rest. We spent a total of 8 hours in the van being driven to Bristol. However there was one quite huge highlight. On the way down we got spend a few hours and be just fans. We got to see Rammstein!!! They blew us all away. We also saw CombiChrist open for them which was cool to see since its been a year since our first tour when we opened for them. It was a great night and a nice unplanned break in the schedule.

Day #4. Bristol
We woke up in Bristol just around the block from the venue. After days without a real internet connection, we found a cafe with free WiFi. We were like addicts getting our fix. We spent a lot of hours that day fixing problems, responding to emails and getting in touch with people at home. I would occasionally have to step outside for a phone interview and Cameron had his first interview for a drum magazine but it was largely a very tame day, at least at first.

We got to the venue and both us and the other opener, Dirty Little Rabbits, were crowded into one small backstage dressing room. Its funny when you have two considerate bands because the room stays mostly empty for not wanting to crowd the other band.

We took the stage and it was probably the most fun I’d had on stage since the beginning of the tour. I think it was more of a mental thing. As has been typical of the shows so far, the set starts out with a fairly mellow reaction, followed by people looking around wondering ‘who the hell this new band is’ and by the end being DOMMINATED!

After the set, we headed out to the merch booth to greet fans as we customarily do. I’m always impressed and amazed by the “I drove 4 hours just for you guys” stories I hear quite often. Its so very humbling and we are so grateful.

As we headed backstage, we were stopped in the hallways by DLR’s manager. Apparently, Stella, the bands rambunctious front-woman sliced her hand open during the set and was being tended to before heading to the emergency room. Not the best way to end the night. But we all sure hope she’s okay.
