Well, they were 2 great nights at the Beacon in NYC. Yet another beautiful old theatre. Really stunning. Met some wildly enthusiastic fans. One or two were very intense. Someone actually squeezed my arm so much it hurt!!

I'm currently being a sloth watching some NFL game or other. I quite like American Football. Not quite sure why. And before you ask, no I don't have a favourite team or player. I don't know anything about it.

Needless to say the last two days have been spent on the verge of a nervous breakdown. All good though and it was well worth it. Did have some great news yesterday though. Grazia magazine have me at the top of this weeks 'Chart of Lust'!!!!!! That's right, LUST!!!! Eat that Coldplay.
The former Oasis songsmith is currently launching his solo career. His first single in July, The Death Of You And Me, charted at 15 and was followed last month by AKA...What A Life, which reached 20. Next week they are both followed by his rather excellent debut album High Flying Birds.
