KANGAROOS, GODZILLA AND SUNBURN: SHADOWS FALL’S BRIAN FAIR GUEST BLOGS FOR METALSUCKS [ENTRY #2 – KOREA]
[Massachusetts metallers (and perennial MetalSucks faves) Shadows Fall have just completed an exhausting run of shows on the far side of the globe in Australia, Korea, Japan and the Philippines. Each day this week vocalist Brian Fair will be recapping stories from the road in a guest-blog for MetalSucks. The second entry follows; be sure to read yesterday’s entry about the Australian tour stop. -Ed.]
Right after the final Soundwave show in Perth, we headed right to the airport to begin a long trip to Seoul, Korea for a headlining show. This would be our second time playing in Korea and our anticipation of a killer show was very high. The fans in Korea welcomed us with a very loud reaction and lots of energy. We responded with a marathon set that included some songs from Of One Blood that we had not played in years and “Stormwinds” from Threads Of Life that had never been played live before. After the set, we headed to an amazing rock bar for a meet and greet with a ton of kids from the show. The Jager was flowing like water and people started getting quite loose. Jason took over the DJ booth and kept the hits from the 80’s rolling. The bar had a stage with a full backline set up and it was only a matter of time before a drunken karaoke session broke out. Nothing says party like a Jager soaked Men At Work sing along. A big thank you to Kevin Kim and everyone at Dope Entertainment.
Everyone had a blast until we realized we had to be up at 6AM for our flight to Japan. Ouch.
