The Fiesta Tour, which began on 28 September 2012 at Helsinki’s TAVASTIA-klubi, came full circle last Saturday at the very same venue with the 11th edition of the traditional Don Johnson Big Band Xmas Show.
Beatboxer Felix Zenger and guitar heroes Petteri Sariola & Mike Dawes joined forces with us for the final show, and it couldn’t have been a bigger blast. A packed house in festive spirits, partying away into the night. When it was time to hand out the gingerbread cookies, just one song remained that could wrap up the year and the 2012–2013 Fiesta Tour: ZZ Top’s “Rough Boy”. And with that, Tavastia turned into a sea of lights and happy faces.
We want to thank each and errrryone that came to the shows, near and far. There were plenty of them in the last 15 months, from small clubs to big festival stages. We made a quick run through of all the set lists, and calculated a total number of 30 unique tracks played during the tour. The 30th of them being “Dirt”, which was played at Tavastia for the first time ever. A nice even tally.
KIITOS, Friends! It was a good year. May there be many more like it to come. Enjoy the Holidays & Happy New Year!
