Hi All
As i write this we have only 4 more shows in this tour!.  I can hardly believe it.  Whilst it's been one of our longest tours, it has gone by really quickly.  The last month has been quite busy however.  After our lovely break in May, which I spent in the gorgeous Ft Lauderdale we spent a few days in Ft Myers and West Palm Beach.  I know many of you attended the show in WPB and it was great to see so many familiar faces there.  I love WPB, it's probably one of my favourite parts of Florida and the Kravis Centre is an amazing venue.  After that we headed to Savannah, GA and in the 9 years I have toured the USA, I can't believe that I have never visited this beautiful city.  It is so quaint and of course the southern hospitality is alive and kicking there.  They even have an island called "Isle of Hope".  I wish I could have spent more time there.  We then hit the good ol reliable cities of Charlotte, Roanoke and Raleigh.  We even got to have a "cook out" in Roanoke on our day off, which was lovely.  Then on to lovely Portsmouth which was an outdoor venue right on the water and of course the gorgeous Wolf Trap!.  It's always so nice to for me to go back there as it was the first outdoor venue i'd ever played in back in my Riverdance days.  It's so special to me.
We spend Chloe's birthday in Cincinnati and had a fantastic night there and then moved on to Youngstown, Cleveland, Richmond, Lexington and Nashville, where I received the honour of being appointed, "Honorary Chief of Police".  I'm not sure what that entitles me to, but i can assure you, there is no living with me now on tour!!!!.  The girls are terrified of me!.
We spent a good few days in Philadelphia last week and then headed to Trenton, Penn State University and Ft Wayne.  So this month has been quite hectic for us and it's not over yet!.  We played Kansas City last night, which was fantastic. I love that city and tonight we're in Little Rock.  Then it's on to Tulsa and on Monday we fly to New York to do a Good Morning America slot on Tuesday morning - very exciting and then fly back to Denver for RED ROCKS on Wednesday and Thursday.  Red Rocks is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we love ending the tour there!!! So there you have it, i hope you are all well.  Thanks so much for your endless support, gifts and letters of encouragement.  You have no idea how much it means to me!!!!.  I hope you've enjoyed this tour.  I'll write after the DVD shoot in Powerscourt and I'll even try to post a few photos, if i learn how to use my computer properly!!!! 
Thanks again for everything.
Lots of love
