Toronto show - Hir and flowers. Nice loose show, audiences are flinging flowers and road crew wearing wigs!

Toronto SkyDome show #2. Second shows are such a luxury for everybody, because there's time to get a lot more things done than during a set-up-and-do-a-show day. Consequently the day was useful for general maintenance and getting back on our feet. I even had time to watch 'Third Eye Blind' who are our opening act at the moment. They've got some good songs, I enjoyed them. Sounded good too, which is commendable given how disorientating it must be for a band playing to such a vast building for the first time.

Later, U2 seemed to have retained some of the looseness of yesterday, which is making these shows very enjoyable to watch. I notice that the b-stage audience flower-flinging ritual for Staring at the Sun still seems to be in full swing. I also notice that a lot of wigs seem to be appearing amongst the road crew. There was some evidence of this on the first American leg of the tour, but sightings of grown roadies sporting curious hairpieces are definitely on the increase. I can only imagine what state they'll be in by the time we get to Mexico.
