Montreal, Quebec, Canada

We played in this venue during the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2005 for the Shangri-La tour. The Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier is a beautiful modern theatre seating close to 3,000 and striking in white, red and black with three balconies. Another sit down for MK who's in great spirits but not yet out of the woods with the pinched nerve. You'd never know anything was up by the quality of these shows....absolutely steaming great performances and another warm enthusiastic audience. Sorry we're not spending the night in Montreal but it's a runner and on to Boston following tonight's show.

Diane had an feast of chicken tikka masala, sag paneer (creamed spinach with cheese), vegetable biryani and naan. Magically, monstrously, maniacally delicious. Platefuls consumed, washed down with creamy Lienenkugle Amber.

We landed in Boston and an American passport agent met and cleared the Yanks on the tarmac. Perhaps recalling the Boston Tea Party, the Brits were taken by van to an undisclosed location for identity verification!

We'll base from Boston for the next several days and fly tomorrow to our gig at MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut.

So long,
