Hey all, sorry for the delay but been settling into the swing on the Brandon Tour. Team Brandon are sweet and so kind and helpful, it’s been super cool so far. This is helpful because on this tour I’m traveling alone. No tour manager. It’s exciting. I am flying from city to city. I feel like Chuck Berry. My friend Demetri doesn’t use a tour manager. It seems easier as a one man show. One can avoid massive drives and fly from city to city staying in nice hotels. It’s a real American roadtrip with a 35 minute set 5 nights a week.
Been meeting folks at the merch stand after the shows. So nice to see y’all. There is vinyl and Cd’s and today we received some badges. And I believe Tee Shirts are coming in a couple of days. Below are some pics from my travels. As I write, I’m on board Brandons bus. There’s a day ff tomorrow from Vancouver to Salt Lake and activities will ensue. Nice to be on a bus. Bunk sleep is the best sleep. Buuuuunk. Seattle was fantastic last night. Today is Vancouver and it’s wet wet wet. INTERESTING FACT. The little baby girl in the pic is called Fran Healy too!!! Total coincidence!

    It was nice to meet you again at the Portland in-store! Great show! Also, I meant to tell you (but forgot) that the new album is so good. Thanks, once again, for the great music.

    Fran, what a great show tonight in Vancouver. I wish we had more time with you! I was quite angry with alot of the young punks in the crowd though. Someone yelled out “We want Brandon!” and I swear, Fran, I wanted to punch them. But us Fran Healy fans are better than that!!! So lucky I’ve seen you twice in 2 months. Please come back to Vancouver again. xo

    So glad to hear the tour is going great Fran! We are so excited to see you in Lawrence, KS this Saturday night! We’ll be sure to come by and visit you at the merch stand! I’d love to get a picture with you and my 11 week old boy Henry! He’s already a Fran/Travis fan! “Buttercups” makes him smile ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Fran…will you have support on your headlining dates?

    badly wanted to see you at the Ogden tomorrow in Denver but have to work and will miss the show. i saw you with the lads there years agao and got a chance to meet the whole lot. was listening to the two Travis covers of Joni Mitchell tunes and was wondering if you have ever/would ever consider covering Brandi Carlile’s “The Story”? i think your voice is suited for it.

    I wish I could have been there to see your show in Oakland, but I’m so glad to hear that my dad got to see you in Salt Lake – all of us in our family have loved listening to Travis and make sure we have the music with us whenever we go on road trips together, and it almost always makes it on to my mix tapes to friends. The couple of times that we’ve seen you and the band live have been nothing short of wonderful, and I can’t thank you and the band enough for giving me the chance to share your music with my family. Good luck with the rest of your tour!

    Hey, was that your papa I met today in the airport? I think it was. I signed a set list for you. Good luck with your freshman year. Best Fran

    Hello, I wanted to share a link to a great video that I took at the Vancouver show, Nov.15. Fran is explaining how he Paul Mcartney to play on his song! Truly great clip!

  15. Kathy says:

    Hey Fran, I’ve missed your last few stops in Minneapolis due to work (out on other assignments) and I’m hoping to catch you here this Sunday. I know Brandon Flowers isn’t allowing photographers, is there any chance of shooting your performance?


  16. Sanjana Bijlani says:

    That was my dad, and I saw the pictures – it was such a crazy coincidence that he met you there! The pictures were great and thanks for the well wishes!

  17. Wendy B. says:

    Fran – Thanks for making it back to Minnie. I caught your Electric Fetus in-store performance (with your 3 layers of clothes) and had you sign the “Coming Around” single. Uh…completely forgot to mention how fantastic your new album is. “Anything” and “Sierra Leone” are brilliant. And yes, Macca doesn’t contribute bass to just any person’s album!

    Stay Warm,

    Hi Fran!

    Just thought I would drop in and give you some “positive feedback.” ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband and I really enjoyed seeing you live in Lawrence, KS the other night and it was a pleasure to meet you. Your music got me through some tough times as a teenager, so it was such a neat experience to finally see you live and to hear the very songs that once comforted me!

    I do hope to have the opportunity to see you again live in the future. You are such a talented man and a true delight!

    Fran, it’s late, but the sentiments remain the same. You are fantastic. I had the pleasure of seeing you in Pomona, L.A., and Oakland and you were amazing. You have been a part of my musicla landscape since Good Feeling and it was so great to get to see you again playing with one of my other favorites, Brandon. I have to tell you that I was shaking and on the verge of tears when you did the duet in Oakland to “Side”. My musical worlds collided. It was such a beautiful moment. And I know that many people have come away as new fans after these shows. It warms my heart to see that someboy like Brandon, who was influenced by you, is continuing to pass on your music to younger fans.

    And thanks for taking a picture with me and my sisters after the Pomona show. AND… for signing my friend’s picture of you, Anton Corbijn, and Dave Gahan after the Oakland show. You are fantastic! Cannot wait for some solo dates on the West Coast. We love you Fran! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxxx
