But last night in Toronto .... has to be the most communicative and uplifting audience we have had yet. Wonderful ... I'm thrilled we could make contact with Canada again after all these years. Quite a different character to the feeling up here ... not like England OR America .... something very much Canada ... I felt very humbled by that response to me coming out with a little trepidation (always!) to sit and play acoustic ... a GREAT NIGHT !

He also says...

Thanks folks ...

I had in my mind all kinds of things at various times .... during the guitar solo especially ... my mind plays tricks on me sometimes ... somewhere around the Whale Noises bit ... I fell to thinking about the animals in cages being tortured all over the world, at that very moment .... it haunts me .... and of course then the image of baby seals being clubbed to death came into my head .... please .... good folks, friends, who were so warmly with us last night ... if you have any influence with YOUR Government ... please try to stop this appalling slaughter ... we can make a difference around the world if we really care .... tell 'em from me ... Just STOP IT. For God's sake. Our fellow creatures deserve better treatment from us ..... and yes, I know that we treat our own race just as appallingly .... apparently it is our God-Given right to attack anyone who MIGHT attack us .... I have never heard a clearer statement (from the US gov, not Canada, of course) of merciless warlike intent. Presumably our own Mr Blair feels the same - I don't hear any dissent. God help us all.
