Show Day: Washington D.C. - MCI Center, Show 2

Show Day: Washington D.C. - MCI Center, Show 2
Went into the gig early again today as there is a lot to get done in preparation for going to Europe next week. Second show days usually have a very pleasant sense of calm, at least in comparison to first show days, as everyones had a bit of a lie in and hasnt spent the whole day pushing boxes about.

I did a TV interview for a teenage educational programme called "Starting Now". I never really pictured myself a role model for the youth of America but it was fun to do and I think I managed to not bore the arse off them too badly.

Another good gig, which is helpful for confidence building as we head into New York for the big finish. Cant believe were about to enter the final port of call on this leg. How time flies when you're having fun.

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.
