Amy Macdonald updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@amymacdonald) on Wednesday (October 22) while touring in support of her debut album ‘This Is the Life’. The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
Good Afternoon from backstage at the Palladium in Cologne, Germany.
I’m just about to soundcheck for what will be my biggest headline gig to date.
I’ve played to huge crowds at festivals and stuff but this is my biggest personal gig.
The Venue holds around 4000 people and it’s been sold out for a while now. The place is huge!!
However next month I’m gonna break the record again and play to 5500 in Amsterdam!
Things are going so well over here, and I could never have dreamed I’d be this successful.
Every country we visit presents me with a platinum disc when I arrive, I don’t think I have enough wall space for them anymore ;-) The album is going from strength to strength in mainland Europe and we’re currently on 1.6million sold, which is incredible. We have had so many requests for a live album so we’ve put together a deluxe CD with a selection of songs live from the Barrowlands, which I think is out on Monday.
