Montpelier show - Chill out. Two days in the south of France and breathing space.

Montpellier, in the glorious South of France. There was a time many years ago, when U2 tours appeared to be organised specifically in order to follow the Winter around the planet. We'd do Scandinavia in January, Canada in November, etc. Even the videos in those days seemed to require either a monsoon or a snow storm.

Fortunately those days seem to be behind us, and we find ourselves in the middle of a run of gorgeous climates. We'll have a couple of days here, so all are hoping to chill out for a while. The end of this leg of the tour is now firmly in our sights, and once you can see a break coming, an odd kind of tiredness begins to set in. Like your body knows there may be a chance to slow down, so starts making early appointments.

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.
