Blog : No More Mr Nice Blog: Hey Hey Hey Hey! Buenos Aires!
Alice was in rare form in Buenos Aires Saturday night, eager to show he was BACK after being forced to miss the show in Santiago due to pesky Salmonella. Apparently, eating Chilean Sea Bass on a flight from Mexico City going into a show day was a bad idea! But he bounced right back on Friday and in the evening was feeling close to 100%.
By Saturday Alice was back to his old self, tearing it up in Buenos Aires! He went poking around in the city during the afternoon, and it seemed like everyone Alice came across kept asking about "Hey Stoopid". I mean EVERYONE. We were walking thru a flea market after lunch and some old lady yelled "Hey Stupid!", though I think she may have been yelling at me to get off of her foot... but regardless, Alice said "That's IT! We're putting it in the set!"
And what a set! Wow! After coming off stage in Buenos Aires Saturday night, Alice said "That was the BEST crowd we've had in a LONG TIME!" Well done Buenos Aires! Hey Stoopid went over extremely well, Alice barely had to sing because the crowd was so loud. Everyone seemed to be in great spirits and the energy was high for what I'd say was probably the best show yet of the tour so far.
Today we're in Porto Alegre, Brazil for a well earned day off. NATURALLY, they are doing construction in the hotel, directly behind my headboard, and apparently with a jackhammer, a leaf blower and dynamite.
Looking forward to tomorrow night's show Porto Alegre! Can you top Buenos Aires??
