PAIN, fronted by HYPOCRISY's Peter Tägtgren, has checked in from the NIGHTWISH tour with the following update:
"We left Manchester early this day off to travel to the English border and take the underground train back to the European continent. When we got to the border we got a phone call from Pekka, one of Nightwish truck drivers. He told us that he was two hours north of London and that a wheel axle had broke on his 35 ton truck. He noticed it because one of the wheels exploded from the heat generated from the fire that started and jeopardised the whole truckload. Since we were closest we canceled our train and went back to London to help Pekka reload the whole trailer into a new one he managed to find. It's a good thing this happened on a day off, otherwise something else would. We only hope we'll be in time in Paris tomorrow.
Otherwise, the show in Manchester yesterday was awesome; 3,400 people can't be wrong. Tomorrow we'll have our catering back. That means no more starving.
Everything taste better with fire in your mouth!"
