Toronto show - On yer bike. Back in business and inside the noise is deafening.

Toronto SkyDome show #1. Hee hee... I guess its like riding a bike. When you do a show like this often enough, you never really forget how it goes. Except sometimes you remember the cue or the chord just a split second after it should have happened.

This made for a very loose show all round, but that was no bad thing - it was a good deal more spontaneous and actually more fun than a lot of shows we've done. We all had a good time. I'd been a little concerned that the seated venues and non-Italian audiences would mean that the energy-level of the crowd would be lower than we'd got used to in Europe. However, I hadn't taken into account the effect of having a roof over our heads, which made the crowd noise deafening. It was all really very exciting, and in a moment it was like we'd never been away. Edge played Sunday Bloody Sunday again, as he did in Sarajevo. It was very well received, as you'd expect, so I hope it becomes a regular item.

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.
