Paris post-show - Happy birthday Willie.

Paris post-show - Happy birthday Willie. Bono treats our hero to a river trip.

Its my birthday, so Bono bought me a bunch of flowers and a midnight river trip with a couple of dozen of my closest friends. Floating up and down the River Seine after midnight, on a boat that used to belong to Winston Churchill, the moon above, the great illuminated buildings of Paris to either side... Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Ile de la Cite... 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.
