I'm wrapping up another unforgettable action packed year. I really do feel lucky to have had all these experiences, spending most of my time touring the globe with Sting. There are a few places that come to mind but right now, nowhere more so than the Philippines which is where we had one of our most memorable shows. Also because as I write, my heart goes out to everyone there who has had to endure the wrath of nature. I can't begin to imagine what it must be like for them, or you. I am thinking of you with all the positivity I can muster. God and nature work in mysterious ways. I know you are a people with immense faith and spirituality so this must be a real challenge, one I am sure you will rise to. I am not religious but you are in my prayers, whatever they are worth.
Next year is shaping up to be as action packed as this one. The year starts with a Paul Simon and Sting double bill tour during February and March. My new album comes out in February and we will tour it around Europe in May and June and then Asia and South America around October and November. We will keep posting bits and pieces relevant to the new album up until its release.
So that's it for now. I'm taking the rest of the year off! Oh, one other memorable moment in 2013 was a gig we did in Chile where Vinnie actually dropped a snare beat, or he made a mistake! This comes as often, if not less frequently than a solar eclipse. We were all glad to have witnessed it.
I hope all your wishes come true for 2014.
