Exclusive Tour Blog: Starters (Days 9 & 10)

Recently Ireland's Starters kicked off a UK and European tour with Rochester, New York natives Such Gold.

Throughout the tour, Starters will be writing exclusive updates from the tour especially for Alter The Press!

Bassist Ian Kelly has checked in with an update of events over the past few days.

February 25th - Huddersfield
We had a short drive today, so we slept until midday and then headed to town for lunch. I got some sweet curry thing and some delish cupcakes. After that we hit the road and headed to Huddersfield. The venue tonight was called The Parish. It was pretty sweet.

The dude running the show was the best and hooked us up with the best food of tour. Pizza, Nachos and giant cookies that had oreos inside them. Incredible. Stay Home were playing tonight. They are a new band from the UK and I was really looking forward to seeing them. They did not disappoint. Great band.

Like I said before its a completely pleasure watching Koji and Such Gold every night. They both ruled tonight. After the show we went back to a really nice house and I drank water from a jar! I got to sleep beside a radiator tonight. Toasty warm.

February 26th - London
Best show of tour. It was packed out. Some kids traveled from Greece, it blew my mind. I can't even put into words how much I enjoyed this show. I was pretty happy with how we played. We played a cover for the first time on the tour. It was 'You Know How I Do' by Taking Back Sunday. Such Gold covered Saves The Day also. It ruled! A few friends came out to hang so that was also cool. The show was called 'What Ever Happened to P-Rock' and the club night after was banging.
