TRY THIS AT HOME;
#109-Apr 17, 2003-Sydney, Australia-Gaelic Club
we arrived in Sydney it was raining off and on. The promoter took
Thai dinner on that first day off (after a bloody 15 hour flight!
this in mind; I had just flown from Athens to London to L.A. to
Sydney in less
than 36 REAL TIME - not flight - hours!) The show was real fun and
was cool. They provided us with Go-Go-dancers and stuff so, you
can't really go wrong there. The Singer was spot on all night and
was in disbelief as we plowed through a 24 song set.
#110-Apr 19, 2003-Byron Bay, Australia-East Coast Blues & Roots
we left Sydney we were flown to the Gold Coast (they ought to call
'Babe Coast') where we checked in our hotel. The next day we were
90 minutes to Byron Bay, where it was muddy and dark. Lots of people
the festival and i think it was this show that convinced us (including
Singer) that we should never do FOREVER CHANGES at a festival with
and such. Most of the people seemed to want the Grateful Dead or
I couldn't really figure it out. It stands as one of my least favorite
I don't think i'm alone.
#111-Apr 20, 2003-Melbourne, Australia-Corner Hotel
the minute we landed in Melbourne it was love at first sight. Everything
about the city just captured my attention. It reminded me a lot
Beach in Los Angeles. Very bohemian. But when we took the stage
that night I
didn't know what to expect. Especially since the amplifier company
ran out of
Fenders and I had to use a Marshall stack (except i laid 'em side
by side.) It
was one of the best mistakes ever cause we rocked the hell out of
Hotel. That show stands as 1 of my top 5 shows ever. We sounded
sound was great and everyone had a wonderful time. The Australian
just unbelievably mad for us. it reminded me, in some ways, of Manchester.
But of course there is no substitution for the Mancurians but the
were not far behind.
