Day 10: Oct. 14 - Schio show day
Another early morning hotel checkout - heading for Schio, up north in Italy.
We arrived, to the house of one of the promoters, where they had laid out a fabulous lunch for us. The promoters of this show
are 6 friends who share a love of music, and are experts on the history of Peter Gabriel and Genesis. They've done a

A great show - our equipment finally gave us a break, and we could hear well on stage. The audience was wonderful. And I'm
finally comfortable with doing the show in Italian. (Hah... it came together just at the end of the Italian tour - we're
heading for Switzerland after this, and won't be back until next year.)

closeup photos I'd taken while on the road with Peter Gabriel. The setup is beautiful, with real flowers so
spectacular they almost out-do the photos.
I was pretty busy before the show, but managed to visit a few times (and of course, take photos people with my
