Stream Of Passion Posts Canadian Tour Blog

Stream of Passion has posted a new tour blog online from the band's Canadian tour dates. An excerpt from the blog follows:

"Monday, October 11, 2010 - No Sleep 'till Quebec: 7 AM. I'm wide awake. Today will be the day we all fly to Montreal to start our Canadian/Quebecian journey. Slightly nervous, as it's always a small gamble to check in your guitar at the desk. Hoping you'll get it back once you landed on the other side of the ocean. Also saying goodbye to my wife and my little daughter is not my favorite past-time. Still, I'm all psyched and ready to go. After I dropped my daughter off at school and promised her to bring back the princess dress that her Canadian grandma & grandpa bought her, I'm heading towards Amsterdam Airport. At 10.30 sharp I'm at the departure hall, awaiting the arrival of the other band members. They slowly start pouring in and we start blocking the hall with all the bags and flight cases. After checking in, and waving goodbye to our instruments, the waiting for take-off starts. While lounging at the local McDonald's Johan brings forth a surprise in the form of our Canadian tour sound engineer. No one less than Endre, the incredibly capable and overly funny Norwegian sound guy we met last tour will be handling our sound. This tour is gonna rock!!

"The next few hours were filled with boarding a plane, watching in-flight movies, being silly, the odd nap or 2, and some airplane food. And then we finally landed at Montreal airport. Anxious times as we went through passport control. The next hour or so was spent at Immigration Service who asked us several questions and made a few calls to make sure that we traveled from the Netherlands just to play some shows and nothing else. We were allowed to enter the country after all and after we reunited with our bags and gear we met up with tour promoter and keyboard player of Manahil, Mathieu Fiset. A 4 hour drive to Quebec City was lying ahead of us. So we got everything that's Stream of Passion into the van and off we went. The French-Canadian landscape rolled by and I think we were all needed some getting used to the different sights and the fact that we were more than 5000 kilometers away from home. This was going to be something else.

"After a small stop for some food we finally arrived at Quebec City's PUR hotel. A very clean and modern hotel with incredible rooms and even better views. After some settling Johan, Steve, Jeffrey, Martijn and I headed out to look for a bar that was still open. It was Canadian Thanksgiving Day after all. We ended up at a place called Scanner and had a few drinks before heading back to our rooms. I reached the 25 hour awake mark before my head hit the pillow. Need sleep. Tomorrow would be the first show day, and some traveling was involved. Exciting times..."
