I'm sure you'd also find a dustbowl rather unenjoyable. Here's an illustration of just how amazingly dry it is here. This was Royal Park in January this year. It has not improved since.



And REM and The Verve? Awesome.

Agreed. And yes, he's one of the all-time live greats. I saw him early on this tour in Philly. It was intense.

I've never seen anything like that except when I was in Cyprus and we went to that amusement park in the middle of nowhere and then the taxi left, and the park was closed, and we had to walk back to the nearest road with cars on it several miles away in what looked and felt like a desert

And yes the Verve and REM, should be incredible, I'm hoping REM don't play much from their new album...they need to break out into These Days (I think that's the name lol) that'd be incredible

He was well worth the incredibly high prices I had to pay...80 something euro...

Heh, that doesn't sound like too fun an adventure. That photo is just a bit north of central Melbourne in the inner suburbs. I'm told that eight years ago, it was lush and green and a very beautiful park. But now - yeah, it looks like a desert.

These Days, on Life's Rich Pageant? I've only just got that album, and that's a great track. The first four songs on that album are amazing. As for The Verve, I bloody well hope they decide to hit Australia on this reunion.

I was told that eight years ago, the sky was blue, but that was clearly a nasty rumour well actually Ireland's not that bad, the sky is blue when the temperature drops below 10C

Yeah I think it is although I'm not sure, I have it on their Best of, the one of the IRS years, 2 CD edition.


Hey Khan

The man turns 59 this year and is currently performing 29 song sets that are lasting close to three hours.

Just unreal.

I'm so used to living in drought that when I was in New Zealand in 2006 for U2 at Mount Smart Stadium, I was just about fascinated by sitting on lush green grass and how it felt under foot or to twirl in my fingers. I expect grass to be dead and crackly.

Ah, right. I don't normally do Best Ofs. Lately I've been fleshing out my collection of REM albums - for some bizarre reason, I didn't have Life's Rich Pageant, and more understandably, I hadn't gotten around to most of their 1990s/2000s albums.

Hey Khan Quick question before I duck back out. Are there any site's you know of that have setlists from earlier Enz concerts. Didn't notice it on the Frenz site. Maybe those lists weren't saved?

Oh, and to everyone else
