ORDER OF ENNEAD frontman KEVIN QUIRION checks in from the road with the first part of his tour diary:
"Day 1 Travel day. Oh the joys of waiting at airports they are endless and not worth mentioning.
"Day 2 Had the day to walk around Amsterdamn before the bus picked us up. Met up with Dave Kinkade (drummer supreme) and checked out some coffee shops and walked around the red light district. Good times. Caught up with the Vital guys roaming around the same section of town, who knew? Took a picture with Darth Vader, the Netherlands version. He's slightly thinner and has an accent, probably blonde hair too. Around 6pm we went back to the airport to meet up with Massive Music and the guys in Tribulation." More...
