Monday 12/12/05: Had today off too, Beau and I walk around most of the day. Eat at Wagamama's again, this time with our keyboard player. get back to my room early evening, decide to read. Fall asleep till about 5:30am. Oops.

Tuesday 12/13/05: Production Day. Up early today(see above), hit the Starbucks around 8am. Off to the gig for lunch and set-up. We're playing the Sydney Cricket Grounds. Set-up after lunch, don't linecheck till 6pm (lots of waiting around), band soundchecks 7pm to 8pm. Back to the hotel by 11pm. Hang with the backline crew guys till almost 2am. Up to bed, fall asleep before I can read a page.

Wednesday 12/14/05: Show Day. Down to the gig for lunch, doors at 4:30pm and first band at 6:30pm. We hit about 8:30 and play till the 10:30 curfew. Show is sold-out, about 35,000 kids. Show ends with a big pyro finale. Back to the hotel about 1am. Lobby call at 10:30am tomorrow for our flight to Melbourne.
