Mexico City show - Looking good on TV.
Mexico City show - Looking good on TV. The show was great so was the shoot, phew!

Mexico City. Two nights at the Autodromo, the second of which (tonight) went out on live television to most of the planet. Mercifully, we won. The show was great and the shoot was great too. This stage production looks like it was made for television - I think its because despite being huge it is a very simple design - just an arch and a line, really. All were pleased and in which is now becoming a tradition, we all jammed into the band's dressing room to watch the tape playback. We cheered at our favourite moments and pointed fingers and laughed at each other's greatest mistakes of the night. Back to the crew hotel we watch the sun rise through the viscous pollution which hangs over Mexico City. So there it is, its printed, PopMart is on video tape and just two shows to go before our Christmas holidays. Any excuse for a party.

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
