Chui Wan did their first tour abroad in March when Club Niubi brought them to Scandinavia (read about their feelings before the tour here). The Chinese band toured around Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark and loved them all! Read the enthusiastic after moods now that they’re home.
What expectations did you have before the trip?
”We expected to get to meet and listen to many good local bands and experience the cultures of the different countries we toured through.”
How did your expectations meet?
”We did find out about many good local bands and learned a lot about the respective culture of each country we went to!”
You toured in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Did the gigs differ somehow in these countries?
”From the differences between the venues and audiences we could tell the differences between the countries we played in. We enjoyed these differences a lot and found them very enriching!”
What was the most surprising thing you came across during your tour?
”There were so many surprising things! To mention one, for example, we loved each and every song the DJ Henning Lindahl played after our shows in Stockholm and Gothenburg! ”
What were the highlights in the tour?
”It’s difficult to answer this one. But we can honestly say that we enjoyed each gig we played in every country and venue. Also, we have to say that the audience in all places we played in Europe was very enthusiastic and very polite! ”
How it feels to be back home now?
”It wasn’t easy to leave. It’s good to be back home now but we still miss Europe!”
