Boston show - Undress rehearsal.
Boston show - Undress rehearsal. Rocking show and one audience member all but bares all.

Rabbits. Boston show - "honey, we're home". We continue from strength to strength with another absolutely rocking show. It seemed to be punter stage invasion night in a major way which was, on the whole, very funny. One woman caused a minor sensation by getting on stage wearing a sequined mini-backless-frontless-gownless evening strap, which practically brought Bono to a standstill. Camera operator Mark O'Herlihy unconsciously followed his primal instinct and zoomed his camera shot into her heavily rhinestoned butt. This would have gone unnoticed, had his camera not been live to the screen at the time, so this special close-up moment was amplified to 50 feet high. Oh how we laughed. Mark was acutely embarrassed, not least because his own mother was in the audience at the time.

Rigger's Arms party after the show. A more mellow affair than Edmonton, but extremely enjoyable. Howie and Fast sharing the DJing - Howie in a mode I'd never witnessed before, featuring 80's chart hits mingled in with his endless groove sensation.
