Michael, Andrew and Kirk performed in front of a crowd of about 50 listeners
and station personnel on the Mark & Brian show at KLOS in LA. (According
to Kirk, the other members of the band had gotten into L.A. late last
night and were probably still sleeping.) They performed Need You Tonight,
Searching, I'm Just A Man and Never Tear Us Apart. In addition to performing
they answered questions from the live audience and callers. They also
took time during commercial breaks and at the end of the broadcast to
sign autographs and pose for pictures. Later that day, the band performed
"Don't Lose Your Head" for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Reactions have
been decidedly mixed for the performance. Jet lag may have been a factor...
today, KROQ broadcast their "Flashback Lunch with Richard Blade" from
the Greek Theater. The band performed a free semi-acoustic set (identical
to the KLOS performance) for a couple of hundred fans. The show was in
anticipation of tonight's big opening night for the US tour.

than Oasis" as opposed to "Elegantly Wasted" in the chorus of the hit

he's indisputably saying the phrase. He finnaly responded with a grin
and "What a strange phenomenon. I wonder how that got there.."
