Continuing with our series on the premier of the new movie Detours to Paradise, we will bring you….
On Sunday we headed up to Taipei Main Station to perform the second premier show.
Our day began at the Blue Sky restaurant, where we spent a few hours rehearsing some new songs for the show later in the day.
Of course, where was delicious Thai food in attendance!
I should say plenty of delicious Thai food!
After lunch we rehearsed for awhile longer and then packed up for Taipei.
The show outside of the #2 South entrance to the station.
This was the scene outside the station.
Quite a nice sized crowd had gathered to watch the show.
A few technical adjustments and we were ready to go on!
Here we are on the opening song.
Many people preferred to listen from back near the station.
I’m taking a solo with the Brian May guitar.
This is Peter, the other guitar player for the Blue Sky band. Peter is really good.
We had literally hundreds of adoring fans fawning over us. Actually, the audience is reaching for some coupons for free phone cards that had been thrown from the stage.
The Blue Sky band played 3 songs and then they brought the actors from the movie onstage.
The 2 people in the center are the actors from the movie (and from the previous article). The gentleman on the right is an Indonesian translator for the female lead actor.
The crowd was largely Indonesian and they went wild over the female lead actor from their home country.
The band went back onstage for the second part of the show. This is Mr. Oath, singing the famous Taiwanese song “Shao Wei.” What’s notable is that Mr. Oath is Thai and is singing in Chinese.
He did a fantastic job with the song.
We ended our show with a rousing song and then ran off the stage ASAP.
These are fans lining up to get autographs.
This is the autograph table.
The line went on for some distance.
In the meantime we went around to the back of the stage to relax. Several fans wanted to have their photos taken with the band and we were just too happy to do that for them.

As soon as we play the Taichung and Kaohsiung premier shows, we will bring you the stories. In the meantime, be sure to check our Events page to find out the dates. Hopefully you can attend one of these shows. If you do, please be sure to introduce yourselves to us.
