Hey welcome, fellow Adelaidian!

I thought your band name sounded familiar, and when I saw your site I knew I'd seen you on Ch 31! Looks like I missed your last gig but I'll keep an eye out for future dates.

See you around! (on here and in town maybe?)

Hey BlueEyedGirl!

Nice to meet you - good to hear someone actually watches CH 31 too! We are having a couple of months break from gigging at the moment (which sucks quite badly!) cos a couple of us are going away..... We'll be back at it late June and recording again too....

Did u see U2 when they were here in 93?

Taking a break? Bummer, looking forward to seeing your band, but good news about recording!

As for U2, I'm proud to have seen them every time they've been in Australia, going back to '84 (yes, I'm THAT old! ) I saw them at the shit hole that is Football Park and I was quite disappointed with the gig - I thought the band were not really firing that night, and the crowd, well, where I was anyway, had just been dug up from the nearest cemetery they were so dead. I went to see them in Sydney the next week, THAT was brilliant.

Also saw Popmart in Sydney - what a great week that was, U2, Oasis and Mardi Gras!

If you go to Band Sightings and Meetings, you'll find my longwinded account of my meeting with Bono!!!!

I am SO bloody jealous!!!
I was only 8 in '84 and hadnt yet caught the U2 bug but was bitterly disappointed about missing the Love Town show - I had only just discovered the band and being only 12 or 13, I hadnt started going to concerts yet

I have much better memories of 93 by the sounds of it - but Im sure time has glorified some of them - I was one of the 1st 10 people who camped out all night with about 50 other people, playing U2 songs on the guitar, drinking, smoking blah blah - by the time I got home from the concert 38 hours later I was so weak!

Where were u in the crowd? I was in the front corner to the left of stage where it met the catwalk......

I will now go and read yer thread on meeting Bono and have a good cry about the fact he was not home (or ignoring me) when I rang the intercom at his house in Killiney......

Ringing the intercom!!! Be thankful he didn't set the dogs on you

Nah, I was up the back for Zoo (well, waiting outside for soundcheck means you can't line up!) I did the whole camp out thing for Lovetown, and when you've had the automatic sprinklers come on at 1.00 am outside Memorial Drive, the whole thing tends to lose its gloss.....

I don't think getting U2 tickets will ever be like it was in '84 - go to Myer at 8.30 am, line up at the BASS outlet with 15 or so people and get SECOND ROW CENTRE TICKETS!!!! Not to blow my own horn or anything.......

You know, now that you say that, I may have had a really crappy one.... I cant remember!

I remember spending most of the night taking turns on one of the dude's bikes and blitzing around the mall to keep warm!

.... and yes, I am a fool

It was all worth it!
One of the best nights of my life by far...... the concert that is - not the Freezing-weird-icicle-toes-cycle-blitzing-burning-bin campout!
