'At home it's still yesterday...'
Travel day.  London to Auckland (day 2)

Leg one of the journey completed and I headed for the B.A. lounge at Singapore€™s Changi Airport.  It€™s only an hour€™s stop-over but I took advantage of the free wifi, as there are some new renders of show video I needed to look at.   I also ran into Darren Hayes on iChat which was a nice surprise.  Skype & iChat make the world a much smaller place.

LHR-SIN was fine, I ate, I slept, I read (The Elegance of the Hedgehog €“ promising, but I€™m not sure it€™s in-flight friendly), I movied (The Kids are All Right which was€¦all right, and Shrek, Forever After which was hilarious.  The writing is so good.  When Eddie Murphy called the Gingerbread Man €œHey, cracker€, I snorted so loudly I woke up the bloke in the next seat.)

Met the lads back at Gate 26.  Next call is Sydney for a longer stop, I think.  Steff gets a monumentally long layover, though we don€™t know why.  Craig points out that it€™s already tomorrow in New Zealand, so therefore we are in the final day of this journey.  I phoned home, where it€™s still yesterday.  What time is it in the world?

Latest Willie's Diary

21 Nov, 2006
Within the bands entourage (certainly by comparison to the crews clockwork scheduling) travel departure times are often a little loose. This morning was especially so, due to three contradictory memos which had been emailed out last night and this morning.

There was a 6.30pm conference call arranged between Bono (Dublin), The Edge (Los Angeles), Steve Matthews (London) and myself (also London) to blow the cobwebs off our brains and discuss the reincarnation of the Vertigo Tour.

I was planning on resurrecting the tour diary today, being the day we were scheduled to fly to Auckland for the load-in tomorrow. However, its now old news that the remainder of the tour dates have been postponed, so Im not going anywhere further than the corner cafe. Its been a very weird week indeed - much akin to driving into a wall.
