Up at 5:30. Suppose to be in the lobby at 6:45. Ugh!
I finally hit the lobby around 7:30. No big deal as the load-in's not scheduled until 8am. I check out and wheel my shit 4 blocks to the gig. Our show today is at Radio City Music Hall. What an awesome venue.
When I was tour managing the Squirrel Nut Zippers back in the 90's, we opened a show here for Tony Bennett. How cool is that? He even came into my production office and introduced himself that afternoon. A true gentleman.
Anyway, I'm in the building around 7:45. I don't leave again until around 1am. Since we're in New York, we have Ray's pizza on the bus for aftershow food. Mmmmm…
