Show Day: Arnhem - Gelredome, Show Three
Made it to the Ryksmuseum this morning, which I felt rather proud of. It's been a while since I found the time for anything vaguely cultural. Final show in Arnhem and its been three for three in terms of highly charged vibe-gigs.

On another note, photographs of the party have started to emerge and are nothing short of hilarious & the blackmail potential is enormous. The party was in a large room at the venue, so there were very few people present who aren't on the tour (tour parties in night clubs tend to be diluted by countless friends of friends). Consequently, nights like Wednesday tend to turn into rock & roll's answer to the office party, with all attendant shenanigans. The wigs also seemed to have served as Venetian carnival masks, providing not only new looks, but also new personalities in some cases. Dinner table talk tonight has rarely been so intriguing.

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.
