'You love this town even if it doesn't ring true, You've been all over and it's been all over you.'

You're on the road with U2 for Elevation 2001... at least you are if you're Willie Williams, U2's longtime Lighting Director and Show Designer who doubles up as U2.COM's travelling diarist.

Want to get the inside track on life on the road with the world's greatest band? Who's at the mixing desk to watch the show, who's on the plane afterwards, what goes wrong in rehearsals - what goes right on the night?

From showdays to low days, Willie's diary keeps you up to date on the travelling caravan that is Elevation 2001.

We now have the first 20 entries of the current tour diary online - and we also have almost 150 entries for the POPMART tour. A treasure trove of U2 stories and people, exclusive to U2.COM

Backstage, behind the scenes, life on the road with U2.
