One of my favourite things - being enveloped by smoke (actually vegetable oil) on stage.
And yes - enveloped by menthol steam in the Steam Room. Sure clears the head !! Yes, I'm probably the only rock star dumb enough to take my iPhone in the steam room ! But it seems to have survived ! Ha ha !
Got ma self a new selfie stick with a wire remote ! Cool ! Fare well Amsterdam - and thanks !

**Wed 27 Jun 18** FIRST EVER STEREO PHOTO OF ASTEROID RYUGU !!! Direct link
This is the very first (official!) stereo close-up of Asteroid 162173 RYUGU.
The Japanese Hayabashi2 team have scored a new triumph by parking their probe only tens of kilometres away from this extremely dark near-Earth-orbit asteroid.
Dr Patrick Michel brought the two component parts of this stereo to our concert Monday night. I was honoured to have the opportunity to make this very first stereo compilation - not only of Ryugu, but of any C-type asteroid - in history. Very exciting for us all ! I asked the team for two exposures around 10 minutes apart. They sent me these two lovely images separated by 13 minutes. I’ve applied a few ‘polishes’ to this tonight, and offer it – as authorised – to be published after 5am.
This is to coincide with the JAXA official announcement that the probe has reached its destination.
Good mornin' folks from sunny Milan !!! Meeting Hayabusa astrophysicists and friends and making plans for Las Vegas production. Oh - and a bit of a show tonight !!! Tutto bene !!! See you there, amici !
Thanks good folks of Milano !!! You were great tonight. I wanted to give more. Bless ya ... Grazie Mille ... sweet dreams. Bri. And thanks Rob !!!
