Atlanta post-show - Talking turkey.

Atlanta post-show - Talking turkey. Thanksgiving in the land of the free and Joe finds a friend.

Thanksgiving. Atlanta. Thanksgiving has no resonance for the Europeans on the tour, but "being the day that's in it", as the Irish say, we decided to have a dinner anyway. The U.S. citizens amongst us appreciated it, and hey, any excuse for a party.

After a nice Turkey dinner we all headed to a local Irish bar. Sitting with Joe O'Herlihy, the bar tender comes over and in a broad Cork accent says "are you Joe?", "er...yes", "I used to work for your cousin..." It's a global mafia, I tell you.

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.
