Travel Day

We all looked like death warmed up at 11am when headed off this morning. I was with Amanda our press officer and Todd Lynn our stylist as we rolled toward the airport in a complete daze. At check in we ran into a whole lot more of our staff - mostly the lampies and caterers, many of whom were on the same flight which was nice. It's a funny thing when everybody goes home - a bit like the last day of school where you know its all over, but today's still just a regular day like any other. A few drinks on the plane, despite the hour. A safe landing and goodbyes at baggage claim as folks bail for the taxi rank when their bags appear one by one. Take care. See you soon.

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.
