New York post-show

New York post-show - Willie "pops" down the village with Warhol as companion.

Popism down the Village. Been reading Andy Warhol's "Popism", because it seemed like the perfect time to do it - in New York after a week of mad parties. That 60's NY era with all its 'happenings' all seems so fantastically silly now, but I bet you it was a lot of fun at the time. Warhol's basic premise of Pop was that 'anybody can do anything', of which we would appear to be living proof. Evening movie - "Kolya" the Czech Oscar winner. Wonderful story and beautifully made film. Loved it.

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.
