Allen Karl and Donna Cunningham European Tour Update
Austria was a tremendous success. Our next stop on the tour was Frankfurt, Germany where we were greeted at the airport by DJ and promoter Lutz Adams, better known as L.A. He laid out our schedule and drove us to our hotel. Due to our hotel being located in a very remote area, we only stayed one night and then we were moved to a more centralized area. The venues were fantastic and the sound checks went exceptionally well, the concerts were great with many country music fans attending and having a wonderful time, many of the fans actually joined in with Allen and Donna when they were performing the great standards, it was wonderful to see these people enjoying the music so much. DJ and promoter, Patty Patrick, was present at all of the concerts and made the comment several times how much she loved the music from both Allen and Donna, Patty seemed to be very happy with the whole event, from the stage layout to the fans that showed up and enjoyed an evening of great music. Spending time with Patty Patrick was a real pleasure. We all fell in love with her enthusiasm for life and country music. We had such a wonderful time together. Allen and Donna did a great radio show with L.A. and we were introduced to some delicious German foods. After a very emotional goodbye to all the wonderful friends we made in Germany, it was off to the airport to fly to Spain. Landing in Gerona, Spain we were met at the airport by Rafel Corbi and his daughter Ariadna. From the airport they took us directly to the venue where we did a concert that night. The concert was great, there was a wonderful crowd and Allen and Donna met many adoring fans. All the concerts went well in Spain and on the night of the final concert in Barcelona we were warmed to find that Rafel’s line dancers had prepared a surprise for us. There was a reception, held in our honor, with homemade food, wine and desserts. We used that time to get to talk to everyone, one on one. They are such nice people and they were very pleased with the concert.
Saying goodbye to all the wonderful people that we met in all five countries has truly been the hardest thing to do on this tour; saying goodbye to Rafel, Ariadna and Sierra was also a very emotional time. We will miss them all so much. We had a very successful tour and the loving and caring people that we met will live in our hearts forever.
