Day off - Boston-2

It's a beautiful day and I wasn't about to let it get away. Boston has glorious parks, greenery and architecture and as long as you don't attempt to drive anywhere it is one of the most charming cities in the USA. I spent most of the day out just strolling with friends. Even stumbled across the gargoyle shop I visited here about ten years ago - an extraordinarily atmospheric little shop selling gargoyles and other assorted ecclesiastical architectural elements (real and replicas) from around the world. That place and 'Avenue Victor Hugo' second hand bookstore occupied most of the afternoon. Early evening drinks, a sunset stroll across the Public Gardens, dinner in Beacon HillĂ– Touring's hell, 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.
