Boston show - School's out. Last show of the US leg, satisfaction at a having seen the PopMart creation born, nurtured and on its two feet ready to take on Europe.

Boston show number two and the last day of school, so everyone is in a state of great excitement. I actually couldn't get to sleep last night I was so excited. Getting to the end of the first leg of a tour is always particularly significant. You get to go home knowing that you have successfully given birth to this new creation, watched it develop, get up and walk. When we start in Europe, there will be so much we can take for granted - all the rehearsal and construction nightmares of Vegas can drift into a dim and distant memory. PopMart lives and its ready to bite your ears off.

Our own tour football team, "PopMartyrs F.C." played their first game this morning, against a local over 35 team in Boston. We didn't actually win, but we did come second, which I guess isn't so bad.

Great show to finish on. The Fun Lovin' Criminals wound up on stage, doing backing vocals for Edge on his karaoke version of "Suspicious Minds", until they were apprehended by security. Toward the very end of the show, a light rain started to fall, gradually increasing. After One/MLK, the band went into a rocked out "When the rain comes" to finish the show, to finish this leg of the tour.
