"...here are our in-ear monitors that we have to put on. The show will sound terrible without them"
"Karen is amazing and keeps everything shipshape for us."
"We have really been getting into playing ping-pong on this tour. We have been playing some fans too, which has been hilarious!"
"...here is the view from Chris’s hotel room in Santa Monica …"

"Chris plays football as often as possible. We often tweet to fans and play against them, which is great fun."

Some have been with us for years, and some are new, fresh faces … [Clockwise from top left:] Adam Taylor (our monitoring engineer), Glen Rowe (our tour manager—brought of out retirement for this campaign), Paul English (the best stage manager in the business; Paul has been with us a long time), Zoe Hodge (assistant stage manager who makes sure all the local crew members know what they are doing), and Maya Gas (the production assistant who keeps the crew in order)."
"Here is Jason, who looks after our security on the road."
