that's crazy. he's worked with some great artists, including their peers. inxs, for one. i'll admit, that's how i first heard of him.

good lord how times have changed. although the closest i would've come to seeing tom petty was back in...81 i think it was?...when split enz of all people opened for him when they toured here in support of the waiata album.

they (split enz) headlined in canada, btw. just to give an idea of how different the two bordering countries were even back then in terms of music.

and i've never paid that much for a concert ticket!

Well, it could potentially directly benefit you, if it were built on the route of your journey. But indirectly, it would get cars off the streets, reducing your travel time and reducing wear and tear on the road so that you get a nicer drive that's easier on your car.

That U2 situation was...my own fault, damn if I had only realized that St. Louis was just as far away as Cleveland, I could've seen them for nearly face value, but I took my mom for Christmas, and she had the time of her life, so that's...what's important I spose *triestoforgetthe$500*

I think Smile was with Lillywhite; if memory serves correctly, it's one of the last songs they came up with.

But things like Native Son and the alternate versions of ABOY, Yahweh, and SYCMIOYO were with Chris Thomas.

The most I've ever paid to see a band is $106, for Dream Theater.

Make them build a local tram network for you. You've got some Melbourne trams there already.

Is it cool that I've kind of been observing the conversation but haven't found an opening or reason to come into it?

I haven't heard any of the alt. versions (HTDAAB hasn't exactly got me excited to hear other material from the era) but from what I've heard about them, and based on Native Son, that REALLY sucks.

Were the Alt. Versions released? If they were, coupled with the fact that Native Son was, it almost makes me wonder if it wasn't a unanimous decision to scrap the Thomas material then, and someone at least wanted it all out there That's a 5:00AM conspiracy theory for you.

Yes, though the alternate SYCMIOYO was absolute SHIT, one of the very worst U2 songs ever.

i think the most i ever paid is right around there for duran duran. i don't remember what U2's ticket prices are even like these days because i didn't pay for my vertigo ticket. and popmart was pretty cheap, like $50? kinda made up for the fact that i had nosebleed seats but then again i was also 14 and didn't even have my first job yet

everyone else has been right around $50 or less.
