With bands still enthusing about recording for vinyl and a new generation embracing the physicality of a 7" single it looks like there is still a future and despite it still being the preserve of the few with downloads clocking in to the billions a year, at least it hasn't been dead and buried.

Some guy at one of the shows had a placard held what said: "WHAT COLOUR UNDERPANTS ARE YOU WEARING?". I'd like to say the crowd were stunned into silence when I told them I don't wear underwear onstage, but as it was quieter than a comedy club that Madonna's doing stand up at (did you see that thing? Holy sh** balls!!) I'm not sure anyone noticed, least of all me!

The first of the two nights was very strange. I've been coming here to Japan for well over 20 yrs now and I can safely say that was the oddest gig I've EVER done. The crowd were silent in between songs. They usually are quiet but this mob were SILENT!!

After about six months we left the TV studio and were taken out to some swanky restaurant, which was indeed a night club, which was indeed the preferred hang out for yer Milanese footballer. All the women (and there was a LOT of women) looked like Mick Jagger when Mick Jagger looked like an Italian woman (1965-1969!).

Paris in the spring is quite frankly... well just beautiful. The sun was out. It was warm... all I'm missing is my girl. The gig was great too. Bit of a come down from all the razzmatazz of the big shows in the UK. Great crowd... Some people actually flew in from The Lebanon especially for it, which was nice.

I do let a few people in to watch the soundcheck from time to time... We had to cut this particular one short and kick everyone out as Johnny Marr was to get up with us that night to perform The Mighty I. I didn't want to spoil the surprise for everyone by having some trigger happy social media kid putting it out there...

I've seen and done some sh*t in my time but I'm damned if I can remember anything to match that Saturday night!?! One of THE BEST nights I've ever done, ANYWHERE. The kind of night you live for... A real privilege to have been there, nevermind actually being onstage. All downhill from that now surely?

So, Singapore then? It was great. I do like that gaff. Very exotic. It pretty much amounts to a gigantic shopping mall. Nice place. Nice people. Very hot. Very wet.

I have to say when the toffs what run our country started spouting waffle about the Olympics and how it would bring out the best in us blah, blah, blah I was - like most of us I expect - thinking "oh f**k off!"... but I have to say they were right. You couldn't fail to be moved.

It was my 100th show as a solo artist thing and I have to say it was definitely the best gig of the tour no question, but I tell you this, it might well have been one of the best shows I've ever done, EVER. It was that good.

The best thing about (the Belgium show) was it was I was introduced onstage by Vincent Kompany, Manchester City's captain. He's from Brussels see? And me and him were going to do the launch of the new Manchester City kits for next season. Both of these occurrences were a true honour.

Got dosed up on hot whisky and Lemsip (the blackcurrant ones!) and sleeping tablets (to be taken responsibly young 'uns... just saying). Woke up the next afternoon in a very damp bed, freezing cold. It did the trick though.

At 6am on the dot the f***ing fire alarm goes off in the hotel!!! Now usually these things don't last for more than five minutes but this time the b*****d hotel was EVACUATED!!!!!! It was barely getting light AND it was raining. So I'm stood outside in a proper fury.

You currently find me in the great city of Moscow. Did a festival last night with that band The Cure and a load of other bands no-one's ever heard of (Everything Is Made In China?? Nope me neither!!). Had a pretty good one. Not sure the Cure fans down the front enjoyed it though.

So... back to Friday was it? Or Saturday? F***** if I know anymore... I've had about 16 hours kip in a week!! So spaced out now it's getting psychedelic (I used to pay £20 to feel like this back in the 80s!!). Right well... I remember waking up in Tokyo whenever it was.
