Day 1, Sat June 7th:
First of all, it’s great to be back out on the road again! To join the great Clutch on this round in Austria and Germany is truly a very cool thing for us. Second, it’s also very cool to share some of what’s happening on this tour with the readers of Metal Hammer. I’m gonna give you some of the highlights, and hopefully give you an idea of what it’s like being on the road with Sahg. ‚Cos it is great fun!
Our little trip had a kind of a rough start. We all showed up at the airport as planned, got checked in smoothly, and even had time for a couple of the world’s most expensive beers before boarding. You have no idea, the beers at Bergen airport, Norway, cost 10 euros for 0.4 liters. It’s a scandal, I know! But we had a few anyway, to celebrate the start of a great tour to come. The rough start kicked in after everyone had boarded the plane, all the baggage was loaded, and we were ready for take-off. That’s when the captain tells us there is an oil leak in one of the engines, that had been discovered in the last minute. All the passengers and baggage had to get out and be transported to a different airplane. This took some time, of course. But better late than dead in a plane crash. 1,5 hours delayed we finally got off the ground, and we were on our way!
