1st DAY IN OZ

Long Long flight . . . . still, part of the job guess, but it was uneventful and boring. I've arrived a day earlier than everyone else, so caught up on some sleep and I'm glad to say body-clock is fine.
I've been out and got myself an Aussie telephone number and had my lashings of morning coffee. Weather nice and warm as you'd expect in Brisbane, so lots of walking, good job I know this city pretty well.  The rest of the band arrive in a few hours, so I won't be "Billy-no-mates" tonight!

Day off tomorrow and then we kick of the tour at the QPAC on Wednesday, which I shall look forward to. Keep posted for more fun and frolics from Down Under!

    Hi Mick. I'm so thrilled to be at your Bunbury show November 2016. I have had the tickets for 4 months and listening to smokie albums constantly for 4 months reminiscing the 70's. Please would you and Smokie consider a back stage pass for myself and partner on the night. Could be at set up before the show, I will bring light pale ales. Or after the show maybe a short visit. Please Mick. You have the power.. Regards A close friend..x

    It is a long flight out here, I've done it a few times,as I have an Irish daughter in law, it can be taxing for sure. Glad you managed to catch up on some much needed sleep. Thankyou so much for setting up this amazing blog, on your unreal site Mick, really helps us feel as though we on tour with you every step of the way. I and my dear friend Jeanette are coming to see you in Albany next Tuesday 16th 5 more sleeps, and then I am coming down to Bunbury to see you on Friday 18th. Avid fan since 14, I'm now 54, is it ok for me to bring old albums and Terry's book to be signed. Cheers Di xx
