My tour has started with some preliminary warm-up dates in the West End of London. As someone has pointed out, the normal thing is to warm up stuff miles from nowhere and get a show "ready" before bringing it to London.

The celebrity old guard was busy anointing its successors at the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend. Fresh from his undignified spat with Sir Patrick Stewart, James Corden found a fan in another ageing knight. Sir Paul McCartney asked the young comic to introduce his slot at the festival, only to find Corden too busy monopolising print and TV World Cup coverage to attend. He recorded a video instead. Elsewhere on the Wight site, our celebrity mole – yes, we have one of those – witnessed Florence Welch's shock at being accosted by Beyonce Knowles, who was keen to inform Flo that she's her biggest fan, and "honoured" to meet her. (Presumably the feeling's mutual.) Finally, Kate Moss flung herself in front of a cameraphone to capture her meeting with Dappy of N-Dubz, who somehow earns himself more mentions in the diary than anyone else. Kate missed the England match to see her favourite hip-hop controversialists play. So she even likes their music.

With 2,600 concerts under their belt since they formed in Sayreville, New Jersey, 26 years ago, Bon Jovi have probably filled more stadiums in their time than any other rock band. Now the group that opened London's O2 Arena to mark its conversion from the Millennium Dome are to take up residency there.
