Denver show - New venue, new government.
Denver show - New venue, new government. A musical stumble in a cold, non-packed stadium, but itís getting there. Back home in the UK there's a Labour lanslide in the General Election. The Tories are history.

Denver show. Cold!
It was freezing here today, which comes as a bit of a shock after the desert. Another uphill show - bit of a stumble through musically and a non-packed stadium is tough on the vibe. Still, technically the lumps are starting to be ironed out and we have got many of the routines down now - the Lemon sequence is much slicker, and generally the segues, entrances and exits are becoming easier and more natural.

During the show election results were coming in from Britain. What a day for the home country as Labour wipe the smug complacent Tories off the map. It was an absolute landslide and getting the information in snippets it was quite magical, hearing these impossible statistics of Labourís ongoing victories. Everyone was so vibed up and loving it - it was really beyond anyoneís hopes or expectations. Tony Blair has his work cut out for him, but what a joy to see the apple cart upset so spectacularly. Thereíll be some good reading in the papers this week.
