San Antonio show - Hutchence dies. An emotional day, Bono pays tribute to a friend.

San Antonio show day. Tonight's show was an emotional one, due to the news of Michael Hutchence's suicide in Australia. It was hard to take in as it seemed so unlikely and so pointless. During the show, Bono paid tribute to him a couple of times. It was particularly hard for Bono as they'd been friends, and he was clearly upset by the whole ordeal.

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.
