A Note from Suz
Hey everyone! I thought I’d send a quick update about life on the road at 35 weeks pregnant. I’m actually feeling remarkably well. The guys have been an incredible help — never letting me lift anything, obliging to my frequent rest stops, and even letting me take a break mid-set to get a snack or put my feet up. I’ve also been sitting down for the first time while I play — just for a few songs. But that doesn’t usually last long since it’s more fun to dance to our songs. Jordan’s been playing most of the accordion parts for me. It’s not that my belly is too big to play it, but more the exertion of lifting it up and the arm workout feels like too much at this stage.
The most important things I’ve had with me: my super-duper-10-foot-long body pillow, a stash of sardines, almonds and yogurt for emergency snacking, a huge jug of water and my stretchy red dress for performing in. The other thing which has saved me on the road is taking advantage of hotels that have swimming pools. What a relief to take off the pressure of the belly!
I think the main question I get is “Isn’t it so tiring??” But the truth of it is that touring is tiring for all of us. But the energy I gain from playing and from interacting with you, our fans, outweighs the fatigue factor. So thank you for bringing all your spirit to our shows. It really is why we’re doing what we’re doing!
