I bet it is...

I must go see the Barrier Reef before it dies.

Oh, come on, you Aussies normally win the tri-series. Let somebody else have it! You already have home ground advantage.

ORCHIDIA FOR THE ROCKED OUT WIN!

So, have I convinced you to come to PT too?

Well, the top shelf of my freezer currently has a lot of lasagne ...
I don't think I saw many setlist parties from the Europe leg, but from memory they were great times

And....

Yeah, the European parties were at a shithouse time for us, I got up at 6am for them and that was usually a few songs into the set. The US ones were pretty well timed, especially those on the west coast.

Hey....now.....England beat us last year!



I would come, but : A the lack of funds, B the fact that they might not play all that many songs.

If it was say $50, I'd have gotten my tickets already.

Have you jumped on that Muse torrent?

I remember you mentioning that...

I could have spent two weeks in year 12 going through the red centre (via Coober Pedy!!), but the trip fell through cos not enough parents were willing to pay $400. That was a frickin BARGAIN, people!!

I loved the year that the final was South Africa vs New Zealand, with Australia not making it. I didn't so much love how South Africa thumped the Black Caps.

Not quite sure where you get B from. They play about two hours, definitely longer than Muse anyway! Haven't jumped on the torrent yet. Will soon.

... wow, that's made of epic phailure, on the Phail Collins level. I'd love to do a trip like that. Especially if someone could just turn a dial and lower the temperatures out there.

Ah damn my dyslexicness!

I was meaning to say "The fact that they might not play too many songs that I like"

Torrent just finished for me. going to grab my headphones and rock the fuck out!

If Muse have one downfall live, its the length of their setlists.

however if you were lucky to see them at Wembley or Europe last year on their short stadium tour...they played for a good two hours most of the time.

The next tour I have a lot of hope, as Matt's been saying they want to play more bigger stadiums. Which hopefully means longer shows.

Also, they are due for a new album at some point this year.

Here's hoping

Ooh, right. Well, I can guarantee you right now that the following songs will be played: Blackest Eyes, Trains, Halo, Open Car, Fear Of A Blank Planet, Anesthetize. That's like saying "U2 will play Pride, Streets, and Vertigo". I'm also willing to bet we'll get Normal - it's only been done once before, and even then just half of the song by less than half of the band, but it's being used to promote the latest EP and I expect the band will have fully rehearsed it by now.

Now, personally, I'm hoping that, out of songs they've played this tour, we'll get Waiting, Sever, Dark Matter, The Sky Moves Sideways, Even Less, and Drown With Me.

And yes, Muse definitely need longer sets. They play so well that I wasn't disappointed by their short set in Melbourne, but I really don't think any band playing decent sized venues should do any less than two hours.

I also hope their new album is a return to form after Black Holes And Revelations.
