This will all be captured on the new televsion series Band Without Borders.
Musical highlights to date include: opening for Ministry in Paris, playing with Queensryche outside Amsterdam, performing at Download Festival in the U.K and Best Festival in Romania, and also sharing the stage with the Allan Parsons Project in Holland and Uriah Heep in the Czech Republic. Additionally, they were the first Canadian Rock Band to perform in Mozambique and Swaziland in Africa. The biggest highlight so far has been playing at the base of The Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt. The band played in a rare sandstorm with the taste of sand in their mouths as they rocked on.The journey has produced unbelievable highs and lows while traveling to the various destinations. Logistical nightmares, financial struggles, and drama ensue as the band follows their dream to become the first musicians to perform in 100 countries. Some of the encounters so far: blowing the motor out of the tour van and being stranded for 10 hours in a storm, half of the band missing flights to Ireland, the singer being attacked by a pack of wild dogs, playing at a palastinean refugee school, crazy border crossings, long drives and sleepless nights, along with the band partying with the fans. The experience is also enhanced by all of the fascinating people, culture and music the band members have encountered along the way.
The Last Supper has a rigorous tour schedule ahead, attempting to play in 79 countries by December 21st, 2012. So keep your eyes out for these independent globetrotting rockers coming to your country soon! CHECK OUT BAND WITHOUT BORDERS CHANNEL AT www.youtube.com/bandwithoutborders
