Dear everyone, I have decided to make the next tour my last. At least for now. The Traveller show is very intimate and through me talking about my life so much,
I started to reflect a lot on the past and on the recent years. This made me realise that my life used to be a very alternative one until I was 12 years old.
That was when we became very successful and famous. Our life changed completely and after a while we started to lose our way.
I mean living in Hotels and in a castle just wasn't the same as on a boat in Amsterdam or travelling in busses around the world.
In the last few years I have spent a lot of time establishing myself as a solo artist and have enjoyed most of the projects that I was able to do.
Still lately I have felt that the way that my father chose to live and to give us when we were small, doesn't have much in common with my current one.
I mean even if I don't have a manager telling me what to do or a major record company telling me what kind of music to play.
I still feel that I am not as independent and free as my family once was.
For this reason I have decided to change my life dramatically but this also means that I won't be giving any concerts next year and won't be releasing a new studio album.
I can only tell you that my family (wife & kids) and I will be travelling a lot and will try to live a very alternative life for at least one year.
I will not be active as a solo artist and also won't be working with my brothers and sisters or with any bands in 2010. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do in 2011.
We will see.
I know that this will be a shock for some of you and I am very sorry for that, but you should know that I am very thankful for every one of you who
has joined me on my musical journey. From the ''Piano Drums'' project to ''The Traveller''. You have been a great crowd and have given me so much strength and inspiration.
If you know me and my past, then I think and hope that you will understand why I need to do this. My children are not getting any younger and if I don't at
least try to give them a life similiar to the one I was able to live, then I'm afraid that I will regret it. If you listen to the lyrics of ''Out There'' you will
realise that I have been thinking about this for a while.
I will try to give you a update every once in a while, but you should know that starting next year their won't be much news about me on the homepage.
So for now, this up coming tour will be my last one and I'm sure I will enjoy each concert like if it were my last.
Thank you so much for your understanding and all your support. I won't forget it.
All the Best.
