The Burning Hell, a band from St. John’s, Newfoundland, set a world record (albeit an unofficial one) back in July for playing the greatest number of gigs in the most countries over a 24 hour period.
How many? Try ten 30-minute sets in 10 countries.
The trek started in Aachen, Germany, at 7pm on July 6 and ended in a medieval castle in Šmartno, Slovenia, 24 hours later.
How’d they do it? First, the line-up of the band was cut from 14 to five. Second, all show were acoustic. Third, they had a van that refused to break down. And fourth, they used a booking agent in Berlin who really knew what he was doing.
In fact, things went so smoothly that they had 17 minutes to spare.
