We finished off our tour in Europe Monday night at Munich TonHalle. What a great finale! We saw a lot of familiar faces and a lot of new ones too. Hopefully you all enjoyed the show as much as we did. Thanks to everyone who came and thanks to all the great people at Wizard Promotions for their incredibly good work. We can’t imagine coming over and not working with them. They are the best! They are like family and so are our faithful fans who come back over and over again to see us. We flew back to the USA with mixed emotions – glad to be going home – sad to leave.
Kevin is in Romania as you probably know. It is looking good that we may come over there and do a couple of shows before Kevin leaves in the middle of December.
Kevin Costner & Modern West were recently special guests on a Swedish Television show called, Skavlan. Be sure to check out Kevin’s sit down interview and KCMW’s live performance of “Cleo At The Wheel.”
We played our last show in Scandinavia in Skive on the 24th. Before Skive, we were in Odense, Stockhom, and Copenhagen. In Stockholm, in case you didn’t see, we played “Cleo At The Wheel” on national television to 3 million people. The crowds at all our shows were loud and enthusiastic and we very much want to come back to play for all our new and old fans again next year. After Skive we drove 16 hours overnight to Munich where we will play at Tonhalle tonight. We had a welcome day off after our arrival in Munich. Some of the band and crew went to Octoberfest to celebrate. We haven’t seen them since. They are presumed lost.
After our USO show tomorrow we are all flying home except for Kevin who is headed to Romania for two and a half months to film The Hatfields And McCoys. It is possible the band will come there to play a few shows.
Kevin Costner and his Rock/Country Band Modern West are set to perform their second USO concert for Troops and Military Families in Germany on September 27th.
Last year, Costner and his band put on a show for military families at U.S. Army Garrison Grafenwoehr and entertained 800 service men and women and their families.
“Last year’s experience was so amazing that we knew right then that we’d have to do it again,” said Costner. “We are in the middle of a big European tour but decided to take a break to perform another USO show for troops and their families serving abroad because this was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.”

We drove all night after the Offenbach show on the 19th and landed in beautiful Odense, Denmark at around noon on the 20th and had the rest of the day off. Here we play Magasinet tonight and then drive all night to Stockholm. The show at the Capitol club in Offenbach was invigorating and loud. The club used to be a synagogue and now has the look of an opera house. Check out the picture of us in Facebook on stage there. The band and crew had a nice day off; however, Kevin went to Hamburg where he did a bunch of interviews. He, Mark, Tim, and Dave didn’t get to Odense until sometime late last night. He’s always working hard and we appreciate it. The band and crew are headed to the Magasinet now to load in and sound check.
Thanks Offenbach for giving us such a warm welcome!
