Travel Day-7

Up with the lark and out to Heathrow with Joe O' to get a flight to Dublin. Already the whole city is buzzing with "the gig". U2 is the primary topic of conversation, closely followed by the weather forecast.

Checked into the Clarence Hotel, which is as tastefully minimal as ever, and got on the phone for updates from the site. Things seem to be running to plan, so I don't imagine I'll go out there tonight if I can help it. Tomorrow promises to be A Long Day.

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.
