Washington post-show - Raeleigh cancelled

Washington post-show - Raeleigh cancelled
Washington post-show - Raleigh cancelled. Screen goes of to be waterproofed.

Washington D.C. day off.
The upshot of the screen disaster is that the Raleigh show is canceled. This reaps several benefits. The screen will go somewhere to be "fixed and waterproofed" (God help us) & U2 will spend four days in D.C. rehearsing for the New York shows. Good deal all round, so much good comes out of yesterday's trauma.

I have my friends John & Jo in town, which is wonderful relief for me and a chance to empty my head of all the pressures of the past month. Good friends. Breakfast. Chat. That's what its all about, really.

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.
