Show Day: Boston - Fleet Center, Show 1

Show Day: Boston - Fleet Center, Show 1
Went into the venue at noon to watch the madness continue. All seemed to be going OK and keeping loosely to schedule. Cameras were up and running by 2pm, crew soundcheck till 3pm, then a full dress rehearsal and camera check from 3.30pm.

The show itself was a little strange - it was all a bit polite. Except of course for the moment at the end of 'Gone', when The Edge smashed his guitar to pieces on stage, but it was a full moon after all.

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.
