I had the idea to write‐up a little post summarizing the North American leg of the Get Lucky tour. You may find it interesting.
So, here we go:
- Total distance travelled by car: 8,831 miles (or 14,212.11 kilometres).
- Number of Canadian provinces visited: 3 (British Columbia, Ontario, Québec).
- Number of USA states visited: 21 (Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New‐Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Vermont, New‐York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New‐Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia) + Washington DC.
- Top 3 restaurants: Buenos Aires, Manhattan, NY; Blue Sage, Southampton, PA; Louise’s, Milwaukee, WI.
- Worst meal: Milford Diner, Milford, PA.
- Best coffee experience: The cappuccino that Hadar prepared for me in her house in Kirkland, WA.
- Best commercial coffee experience: Kahili Coffee, 105 Lake Street South, Kirkland, WA.
- Most boring town: Winslow, AZ.
- Most boring drive: The entire state of Kansas.
- Number of times being pulled over by police due to speeding: 1 (Jeroen).
- Number of concerts: 28.
- Best concert experience: Massey Hall, Toronto, Ontario (April 29).
- Best setlist surprise: A Night in Summer Long Ago, played twice or three times during the North American leg.
- Most exciting concert moment: Mark telling John Monteleone’s story before playing Monteleone for the first (and only, so far) time during the tour, in NYC.
- Most exciting non‐concert moment: Meeting my cousin David in Philadelphia, whom I had never seen before.
- Best buddy to travel through thousands of Kilometres in a silver Ford Mustang convertible: Mr. Jeroen Gerrits, Delft, The Netherlands. Jeroen is currently making his way to the airport, where he will depart to The Netherlands in about an hour. Stay strong, buddy, it was an absolute pleasure to share this trip with you. See you in London on May 30.
See you all again soon,
