It’s fourteen days of bus, gig, bus, gig, from San Francisco via Las Vegas to the Mexican border; fourteen appearances as Wesley’s support band playing to an audience that doesn’t speak any German. Every evening, the dark colossus sits at his keyboard bemoaning his fate. The audience is partly bemused, partly disturbed, by his opening number, entitled ‘Osama Bin Laden’. His songs consist of no more than three chords and are all based on the same mathematical principles, but you can guarantee that the entire will be moved by the end of the show.
For both ‘The Golden Lemons’ and Wesley, the tour is a marriage.r both ‘The Golden Lemons’ and Wesley, the tour is a marriage.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]www.realfictionfilme.de
