Show Day: Vienna - Stadthalle, Show Two
It is always a great bonus for me if, in any given city, I can find the "great little cafe" to have breakfast, read the papers and generally hang out. There's a great one in Vienna, just off a small cobbled square with old green wooden tables and chairs outside, serving breakfast till late. I found it several years ago and it's really a good one. The only teensy weensy problemette this morning was that I couldn't find it. I wandered round for ages down familiar looking old cobbled streets, but just couldn't locate the square. En route I did come across Mozart's house, so took a quick look around that which was quite exciting, but could I find my coffee shop? Not a hope. Gutted.

Second show at the Vienna School Gymnasium, noisy crowd, super sweaty gig & a runner to Berlin afterwards. Arrived very late, of course, but it was exciting to be coming into Berlin knowing we'd be here for a few days and perhaps have a chance to look around.

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
