The 777 Tour with Rihanna: Paris

November 22, 2012

Paris at night is so beautiful. When we arrived the sun was still up but by the time we had got our luggage from CDG the sun had fully set, we quickly made our way to The Westin Hotel situated on Rue Castiglione and after a speedy check in and fast dining thanks to room service, I had enough time to change and meet the rest of the crew downstairs. We headed to Le Trenion which already had queues winding around the corners, the French Navy was out in full force for the Paris leg of the tour.

The curfew was strict a the venue so Rihanna was perfectly on time after a set by DJ Reflex. She rocked up wearing an oversized printed silk tee with over the knew boots with not much else. At this point I’m starting to see a bit of a uniform with her stage looks and after talking to Adam steleman (her stage designer), I’m starting to understand a little bit more about her choice of looks. I’m really looking forward to telling you all about each look individuall after the tour. I’m really sorry about the lack of tweets in Paris but the the WiFi connection was non existent and for some reason my roaming decided to stop working.

The set was great but I decided to skip the after party and opt for a night of sleep. I actually managed to get eight hours and after having a delicious breakfast in the morning I felt more energetic then ever before on this tour. It’s crazy how accustom you become to no sleep when doing a job like this. After breakfast we headed back to CDG airport and geared up for Berlin. As I type this I’m sitting in my seat on the jet and anticipating in excitement for tonight’s gig.
