I get the feeling there may be a future for us in South America.

NB: Obv I’m choosing the point of the set that makes folk the most roudy, to impress people.

Also, I’m not being funny, but we’ve never had a fireworks display happen right after leaving the stage of a Barfly:

Everybody I met last night, it was a complete pleasure. I’m sorry I never made it to El Teatro. We went for food, and then it got late and drunk and tired, and I had no idea how to get to the place.

Everybody we have met at these last three shows has been amazing. You have been the warmest, friendliest, most beautiful people and I wish you could come to every show we play. I am kind of stuck for words, but please know how grateful we are that you have cared about our band, and allowed is to come to your countries.

Thank you x One Million.

PS. We head back to America today. Seattle via LA. We get to go watch My Bloody Valentine, and then on about Wednesday (I think) we start recording again. I promise this will coincide with these blog posts becoming less saccharine. Cheers.

Comment by Ricardo

no, thank YOU Campesinos! for giving us South Americans the best show of our lives, in comparison to other bands, you are the only ones who really care about their fans, talking to them and making them feel warm and thanked.

So, Aleks, Ellen, Hariet, Gareth, Ollie, Tom and Neil:

Thank you

[…] y de que no tocaron “Don’t Tell Me To Do The Math(s)” me encantó y al parecer ellos mismos disfrutaron mucho sus 3 presentaciones en Sudamérica. Ojalá podamos verlos en otra […]

Hi Neil, I’m Veronica, I had an interview with you for a magazine, I think I was the first one, hope you can remember!. I could get on time to the concert, but I saw it from outside because I got a better view and I wanted to dance, but after that I didn’t have the chance to go to the backstage and say hello!!!

Great concert!, and congratulations, and thanks for coming, you will always be welcome! Anyway, I would like to send you my article when it’s ready, and maybe I will be able to send some orange rum to your friend!

I posted here my email and the link for the website from the magazine!

I hope I can get some answer from you!!

Trying to emulate the setlist in my iTunes to keep dancing and remembering. Can’t wait for you guys to come back. Ahh, and there’s a group picture that you should post here 🙂 (Ollie, you’re not in it, though; I think you had already got into the van).

Comment by Alex K.

that’s cause you didn’t hang out after the show in guadalajara 😦
i was there before the show, maybe you remember me, i told you how i basically ran away from home to see you? and it was SO worth it!

LOVED THE SHOW! i don’t know if you remember me, me and my friends were the ones screaming aleksandraaa!!! and we talk to you later..
i told gareth that most of the girls there, were not venezuelan, because they were hideous haha jk jk.. (well some of them were), we called tom and aleksandra because they wouldn’t come outside, but finally they did and we took like 376482 pictures! xD
we were so exited after that night xD
