The concert and gig thread


#561

doh! Saturday night!


#562

was thinking about going for Slayer, Anthrax, and Twelve Foot Ninja (saw them open for Disturbed and really enjoyed them!)


#563

Yeah I think they did…then For Amusement Only took over haha


#564

Yeah they are solid.

I want to see a fair few bands at Download…might just have a few beers and cruise around.


#565

Anyone doing either The Prodigy or Slash w Myles Kennedy & Conspirators tonight in Melbourne town?


#566

I currently run a pub up in Cairns, but hope to run a larger touring venue back down in Victoria one day. We’ve got Creedence Tribute act, The Wolfe Brothers, DZ Deathrays, Heath (Chopper) Franklin just to name a few on the horizon :slight_smile:


#567

Sounds like the Edge Hill Tavern


#568

Or The Jack.


#569

Righto thanks mate - thought you may have been in Vic now. I organise entertainment in Albury and am always looking for venues with which to share ideas and artists.

Earthless additional show at the Tote, March 9th. Probably play 5 songs, 20min each. Get on it


#571

well Phil was disappointing…

only because he didn’t sing Groovy Kind of Love which is one of my fave all time songs!

but other than that, he was terrific! His voice is a little weaker, particularly with the higher notes, but he still sounds amazing, and even though he sat for the whole time (recent back surgery), he still managed to create an amazing party like atmosphere. Was awesome seeing his 17 year old son playing the drums too!


#572

Yep - Groovy kind of love was our Wedding song so disappointing not to hear it but the rest of the show was very good. You’ll be in my heart, Don’t lose my number, One more night & Two Hearts were the others I would have liked but when you’ve had a career like his its understandable some faves will miss out. Rapt he sang Separate Lives & the duet with Nicholas had Simone & plenty of others nearby tearing up. I couldn’t really think of another child of a superstar who I’ve seen perform like that. At 17 to carry the drums for the entire show & also play a piano duet with his Dad was awesome. Like you said his voice didn’t quite reach some of the higher notes but the tone is still there. Great night.


#573

annnnnd next on the list of artists that are different…

just got tickets to see Sir Elton in December :slight_smile:


#574

Lazy 80k for Eminem at the ‘G tonight.


#575

Son just took HIS Son to it for his first Concert,

Just got of the phone with 'em, … both rapt to the back teeth with it all.

4 acts, Em did 32 songs or something. They are both rooted! ha ha. :+1:


#576

It took me thirty years to see 'em, the last few waiting for LMW to turn 18, but finally got to see They Might Be Giants at the Croxton Bandroom last night.
It was awesome.
They were awesome.
I should have gone to both gigs.


#577

Beasts at the Triffid were very good last night.


#578

That’s BRISBANE right? What’s it like as a venue?


#579

Great venue, great sound. Hadn’t been there before but will definitely go back.


#580

Apparently an old hangar, transformed by Powderfinger’s bass player. Loud as ■■■■, and clear. Done a good job
