Went to the venue uncharacteristically early for a second show day, as theres still a lot to decide about how we approach the Milan video shoot (even though its barely a week and a half away). Hamish, the director, Allen, the TV lighting consultant, Bruce and I spent a good while talking through the proposals and walking the stage. Its a very particular skill to transfer the energy and aesthetic of a big show onto a small screen, but these guys are the experts so I have confidence that we will be able to make it work as well as we have in the past.
The band came in and spent a couple of hours in their rehearsal room, which was again very commendable for a second show day. They are keen to work up some different songs and generally keep moving the show forward, with a view to committing it to celluloid, or hard drive, or whatever it is that hi-def goes to.
