Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike in Zurich, 20 Dec. 2008

Thanks to Lilly Pavlak for these photos, taken at the Restaurant Lerchenberg, Zürich, Switzerland, on Saturday 20 December, showing Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike playing the last show in their December 2008 European tour. The band had had two free days since the tour began on 2 December, and had travelled long distances (sometimes in snow) through Germany, Holland, and Switzerland.

Lilly adds that the Zurich audience was 'just crazy about them', and insisted on seven encores before the band left the stage. Valerie Smith and Becky Buller sang Christmas carols in German, and everyone joined them in 'Silent night/ Stille Nacht'.

A happy band at the end of a hectic tour
