The festival season is now in full swing for Smokie, but as usual weather is playing it's part in hampering the flow of the gig!
Last weekend in Berlin. Smokie had to cut their set by three songs because the safety officer at the festival thought that the storm above, was a little too close and fierce for comfort. Rain quite literally peltered the fans who attended for the whole show. Disappointing for the guys but this is what goes on and someone has to take responsibility for safety of all persons working at the festival.
Fast Forward a week and the band once again wondered just how they would be affected in the Czech Republic? Thankfully after a downpour of over five hours, rain finally stopped five minutes before the band took to the stage in Pilbram.
This weekend also played host to Terry's birthday and social media was awash with goodwill messages towards Terry who celebrated his Birthday in the Chateau where the band were staying for the weekend.
A busy few weeks ahead now, let's hope the weather is kind to Smokie!
