It was like playing in an oven while a turkey was roasting, each time i raised an eye brow i broke into sweat. Not our normal full house for this city but in the end i think the show was ok. Next door Neil Diamond in a larger venue as you would expect. Tomorrow Chesney someone and Randy someone else playing in Soldier Field to about 100,00 country fans, the car park full of tour buses and shiny trucks. I want one of those shows. Off to my hotel, no A/C so i had to be moved to another hotel a few blocks away, and floor 42, i can’t sleep that high up so the woman on the desk went up and drew the blinds and we decided that i would pretend i was on the ground floor. I was so hot so tired that i just went with it. Fuck sprung to mind several times, it was all there to test me, find me tested.
