Las Vegas, Nevada
It was an hour and a half of humiliation at the gym then out for a stroll down Main Street in Santa Monica with MK and Glenn. We ended up in a surf shop and I bought a pair of swim trunks which I'll make good use of this week in LA, not to mention the couple of weeks of holiday on the Gulf of Mexico coming up. Stopped in at Peet's Coffee shop for the largest and strongest latte they could manage and it was just what the doc ordered.
We flew to Las Vegas where we played the Hard Rock Cafe Hotel's "The Joint", basically a large club within the hotel with a capacity of about 1,500. The whole thing was so casual and at some point during Sultans of Swing I felt like we were playing in a Dire Straits cover band with the waitresses delivering drinks and the neon signs behind the bar. It was a terrific show, the sound was really great because the place was so small we could hear every single note and the audience was there to hear some music. A success on all fronts.
We flew back to LA where we play the Greek Theatre tomorrow.
