Tuesday nights dinner….

Last night about 25 of us met up for dinner in Greek town, some of us had met before in 2006 when we were here for Rogers shows and some of us had known each other over 10 years, all through being fans of Rogers music.

My friends Gail and Joe who had flow in from Phoenix came over to the UK for Rogers 2002 tour, Bob and Andy had done the same but Bob being a huge Dave Gilmour fan had also flown over for some Gilmour shows 3 or 4 years ago and of course for Live 8 in 2005. Philippe, Jens and i had travelled extensively through Europe in 2002 together plus seen shows all over the world in together over the last 10 years. It was great to meet up with everyone again, i guess were all there for the same thing and relate to the same thoughts we all have about Rogers shows and the music which is why we all get along so well together, kind of hard to explain but the people that “get it” will understand what i mean.

Click on pics below for more images from last nights dinner.

 
By the time we all left the restaurant it was going up to midnight and most of us that had flown in that day (Jens and Thomas from Copenhagen, Philippe from Belgium and Anders and his friend from Sweden ) had been up for 24 hours and were starting to feel the jetlag creep in. Just for the record, i had two Long Island Iced tea’s, these will probably be the last and only ones I'll have while I'm over here (seriously) as most people know, i drink very little at all and it wouldn't bother me if alcohol disappeared off the earth tomorrow!
 
Its now about 8am Wednesday morning, woke up a few times in the night but managed to get back to sleep for a few hours, cant wait till I'm on North American time though, hopefully shouldn't take more than a week or so.
I'm gonna get up and go for a run then get some breakfast with Bob, apart from the obvious tonight I'm not sure what's planned for today, there's a few people due to fly in today that we wont see till tonight, Elliot's coming in from New York, Maria is driving over from Montreal and my good friend Zo is driving over from Quebec,  but were all kind of separated and staying in different places around Toronto. Bobs off work for the next 3 days so i think were driving downtown to see a few sites and few of us will probably meet up for lunch and then were all meeting up in a  bar before the first show tonight at 5pm
