Rio de Janeiro pre-show - Hot and howling.
Rio de Janeiro pre-show - Hot and howling. The fans and the weather keep up the temperature.
Rio de Janeiro, rehearsal day. Was awoken this morning by the throng of fans outside the hotel howling "...een-nuh naaaaim oh luuuuurve..." at the tops of their voices. Well, at least they're keen. Down to the venue once more to get to grips with being back to work and to try to remember just how a PopMart show goes. The band showed up and we did a fairly respectable run through, given that its still 30 degrees in the middle of the night. Our head security guy, Jerry Mele, had his 50th birthday today, once again blowing the myth that "you can't do this touring lark for ever". Quite encouraging to think that I might never have to get a proper job.
