I’m back with recap of day four of LP’s tour. She and her band arrived to Vienna in Austria yesterday (29th March) in the early morning. They had some time to explore the city, they visited Mozart’s house. According to wikipedia, this building is in Vienna’s Old Town, not far from St. Stephen’s Cathedral and is Mozart’s only surviving Viennese residence (now a museum).
As for the concert, not sure on the setlist, but I think the crowd was huge and it must have been very special evening, as both LP and Elias (drummer) shared pics of the night. Concert took place at Planet TT Bank Austria Halle – this venue is located in Gasometer B, that originally opened in 1899. After all 4 gasometers went out of order, they were changed into a new urban complex. I think this place is amazing and must have spoken to LP as an artist. You can learn more about this place here.
Today I wanted to share a quote from a long-time fan of LP, Alex, who written after the concert: “LP rocked Vienna once again ❤️ @iamlpofficial thank you for all the smiles and the awesome energy ? I can only say it’s been an honor to be your fan since 2004 and watch you grow like that. The sky is the limit ? See you again!”. I keep repeating, that I should have know LP and her music a LOT sooner…
Instagram was flooded with pics and short videos after the show. I always find so many that it’s hard for me to choose only few that would go with the post, so just go to Instagram & use hashtag #gasometer. Here‘s great gallery of pics taken by a professional photographer, Amanda Peniston-Bird for Planet TT (where concert took place).
Also, the interview with LP for ÓČKO (that I mentioned yesterday) is up on youtube. As you will notice, the video was not make public, but Blanka who interviewed LP has kindly sent me a link to the video and now I can share it with you. Interview is really nice, LP is speaking about Keith Richards and her rings in it, amongst other things. You can watch it by clicking here. Second, shorter video can be found here.

I still do not know who exactly made her crown ring, though I swear I’ve seen it being described as king’s ring, but maybe I have imagined it? Anyway, it was a gift from a friend who made it for LP. Her skull ring is one that she has had forever (by Alex Streeter I believe). And her newest one is with garnet – LP got it as she wanted something regal. Also garnet is birthstone of the month of LP and her girlfriend’s anniversary. I have no idea where LP got it, but it is very regal!
Today LP is playing her second concert in Austria, this time in Posthof, Linz. Posthof shared a quick video of LP inviting her fans to come and see her. Tomorrow LP will have a quick break from the tour, as she will be joined by her girlfriend Lauren. Lauren who is also a great singer, will be opening for LP on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of April in Italy, and then again, on the 13th in Paris. Italy & France, you got lucky!
But LP is still in Austria and soon her concert is starting, Posthof, have fun!
