BRIGHTON – what a wicked start to the uk leg  can’t tell you how much it means to have such fantastic support in my hometown . playing two sold out shows at the Brighton Dome really does make me realise how much has happened over the last couple of years and just how much its grown . there was a time , not too long ago , where i would play my brighton gigs in the function room of my mates pub – we used to put two tables together to make a stage and i’d stand up there with my little busking amp in front of 50 people (some of whom i saw in the front row last night !!) i don’t think i will ever truly understand how fortunate i am but last night i think i glimpsed it for a second .
so much love and thanks . mike xx

PARIS – tuesdays gig was special for a number of reasons . first of all to be able to play at the Olympia (Paris) was incredible – its amazing to see how many legends have played at that venue and to be able to do the same felt pretty surreal 

secondly , to nearly sell it out and to play to such an attentive crowd was a total pleasure . a massive thanks to everyone that came down !!!!!

thirdly , my mum and dad came from england to watch the show . my dad used to live in paris in the early 70’s and when i told him months ago that i’d be playing at the olympia he laughed and told me that he’d seen Leonard Cohen play there in 1972 .

it just so happens that both my mum and dad have birthdays around this time of year so for a joint birthday present i booked them a little trip to paris to coincide with the show .

it was an amazingly emotional experience for me and i think for them too . what a crazy world this is – for my dad to have been in a room in paris as a man in his twenties watching leonard cohen and then forty years later to go back to the same place to watch his son perform …. bizarre and pretty cool !! anyway , sorry if this is a bit self indulgent but just wanted to share it with you all .

here they are taking an adorable selfie on the eurostar 

BARCELONA – can.not.wait.
