Show day: Anaheim - The Pond 3rd Night
I shall not miss the commute from Hollywood to Anaheim, I must confess. The band didn't soundcheck today, so we were able to come in a little later than usual, the downside of which was that we were able to sample first hand an authentic L.A. freeway traffic jam. Still, we finished this run of shows in style, with a suitably starstudded cast of guests including, incredibly, Queen Noor of Jordan, widow of King Hussein, who apparently is a longterm U2 fan. Other luminaries included Depeche Mode, Counting Crows, Meg Ryan, Melissa Etheridge, Wim Wenders, Dennis Hopper and somewhat unbelievably, Neil Diamond. Janet Jackson was on the list, though I didn't see her myself, unlike Cher, who not only came to the gig, but ended up in the mosh pit which was highly commendable.
