Great story Khanada
Really happy for you

I haven't been visiting the Frenz forum lately, but I'm sure there's info & setlists over there. And of course there is YouTube

I gave the new album a full spin for the first time last night. It's really, really good! There's a one or two clunkers, but most of the songs are great! What's everyone think? The second half is espesh good.

actually, i'm a member there too and i've not seen an official setlist there or over at crowdedhouse.com. the closest i've seen is a picture someone posted of the printed setlist the band had, but some posted they deviated from it, but of course no one can remember specifics oh well, it's not really that important to me to know every single song. i do know i had a blast.

i did record a couple videos at the concert, i should check those out and see how they came out

Time On Earth has grown on me. It's too long and should have been edited down, but tracks like Nobody Wants To, Pour Le Monde, Silent House, and Even A Child are great. I normally stop after English Trees though, and Heaven That I'm Making/A Sigh is a clunker of a duo.

My friend and I are going on the 8th, but I'm not sure I'll have time to meet up with anyone. We've both got uni assessments that day, so we're treating ourselves to an early dinner on Lygon St and then heading straight to the gig. What time should we aim to be there, anybody know what Rod Laver Arena's like to get into? I've never been there before.

I swear, they better play Recurring Dream. Anybody know the sets from their recent gigs in New Zealand?

rod laver for crowdies should be pretty relaxed security wise , parking is good , prices on drinks and food are astrinomical, if you are GA you need to get a wrist band early in a designanted zone from secutiy and get in line at door 5 ususally. remember that its important. if you go in the gates they will be metal detecting and bag searching but if you go up from the car park its very lax.
there are heaps of vendors for merch, food and drinks, its set out in a circle.

you cant take any grog into the actual arena you have to drink it on the concourse.

i have seats and am comming from geelong so i might not get there till 7, doors open at 5.30 and it should finish about 11pm.

I'll be there on Thursday

I'm absolutely cluless about anything Crowded House has put out since the Recurring Dream best-of, I'm ashamed to admit. I'll probably want to go and get all the CDs after this gig, cos I probably won't recognise half the songs.

I'll be the tall one, looking confused

That's great, cheers for that. My friend's exam is done at 4:15, so I think that we should be able to eat dinner fast enough to get to Rod Laver by tram by 7pm. We're seated too. I guess I'm just nervous after what happened for U2 in Brisbane. The concert began half an hour late because they were taking so long to let seated people into the venue. But that was a much bigger gig. When I saw Split Enz and Finn Brothers in Brisbane, we rocked up at 7pm both times with no troubles.

Anyhow, I'll be the shortish, glasses-wearing albino guy with the somewhat taller, brown haired American girl. If anybody sees me, say hi. You're almost certain it's me if they play Recurring Dream and you see someone absolutely explode and sing it word for word. I know I'm fairly recognisable after how many Interferencers spotted me during the Vertigo Tour!
