Seven months ago, we left Germany for a trip to India. We did not know what to expect from the country, at least the “German part” of Fire On Dawson. It was like a blank canvas. Damn it! – We did not even have any dates for concerts (ok – we had one…) when we left Germany and were quite concerned about the overall success of our plans going to India and performing in front of an Indian audience as a German band.
But now after all, coming back to Germany, reviewing our pictures and video material, it is dawning that even if we thought there were a lot of uncertainties (think of lost instruments on flights, broken equipment – how to get a proper replacement, the adventurous wiring….the traffic) this ”thing” we just experienced was huge and will continue to affect our personalities our whole life.
I personally still can’t grasp it. In this video accompanying this text we show you some of our personal footage, behind the scenes shots as well as parts which were recorded by professionals. Putting together this video and seeing the overwhelming response again and again…it felt surreal. We were a part of what happened and YOU made it happen!
Speaking for all the band members, I want to thank all of you who got in touch with us – either in person, or via the various way the modern internet platforms allow to stay in contact, or if you just have heard of us or spoke with us on the phone during organization of transport or if you only saw us in one of our various performances or whatever.
Have fun watching the video, look out for yourself: maybe some of you guys will find yourselves somewhere in there. We definitely had fun making it and even more fun being filmed during our journey! You were not only part of this, you made this happen.
Thank you most sincerely, India!
