Metallica and the Big Day Out

I just got the timetable

so now I can make plans. I want maximum.....everything!

http://www.bigdayout.com/timetables/...-GOLDCOAST.pdf

and to think I was going to sell my ticket.
I'm glad Jet are on the Green Stage, makes them more accessible. It's a shame they are on at the same time as Muse.
The Lilypad has it's usual high standard of entertainment I see
There's such a good vibe as everyone piles through the gate at the Big Day Out.....I'm looking forward to this.

thanks for the info....I always enjoy them when I hear them on the radio.
I probably should check them out in that time slot. Jet are Australian and I may get the chance to see them another time.
It takes some planning
It's one of those ocassions when you wish you could be in two...no...five , places at once.

I've checked out the timetable from every angle. I just can't fit Aphex Twin in
and I've decided to sacrifice Jet for Muse
and I won't get to the lilypad at all.
so much to see and hear, so little time
Metallica are recording on this day. They are going to have a live Bside on a new single they have planned. They have asked an Aussie to do the cover art. A gift for the down under fans.
I was reading how Kirk has taken up surfing for R&R...now THAT is something I'd like to see.

there was no room for them
the bill is jam-packed.

I did think I saw Rancid listed, but they are not on.
One of the BIG names withdrew early on...can't recall who now.
I plan to see The Darkness, Salmonella Dub, Black-eyed Peas, Gerling, Dandy Warhols, Muse, Hoodoo Gurus and Metallica.
and lots and lots of people
I have to high tail it out of there when Metallica end. I'd like to see Basement Jaxx, but 2 of the 3 young guys i am taking with me have to be at work at 6 am the next day
Actually they are all 18( one of them is my son) I have cared for them all since they were born and I like to think they all play guitar quite well now because of their early influences....moi
It will be very special to take them to see METALLICA LIVE!!!

aww shucks martha well I like to think so , I just rule in my own little neck of the woods . Queen Mum

A fly just flew into the ointment...or was it a spanner.
My son has decided he really can't handle a Big Day Out ( long day, long drive, lots of sun, it's tiring). He works a hard hot 10 hour day, it could be dangerous. He didn't have that job when we bought the tickets, he was still at school. I feel so sorry for him...he is my child that loves Metallica the most. He went and saw the people at work and they said there are plenty of other people who would take his job. Too true. There is no chance of a day off. His mate has been put on the afternoon shift, he can manage.
So, it might be us oldies going, except hub is playing in his band the night before and he'll be tired...oh gings.
Maybe I should sell both tickets and go to the cricket.....??


NO WAY

stow away on Metallica's jet

or Jet's metallica???

it would be a bit like Salome going to the cricket at the Gabba....a culture shock, Australians in the raw en masse.
I must say I feel very disappointed about BB not being able to go. I remember the day I impulsively bought the tickets. I saw a pic of james hetfield in a magazine and thought "BB just has to see this band" I'd already tried to get tickets to their individual concert tour, but they were sold out. The BDO was the only other option.
He only told me about his decision last night, it's just sinking in.
HUGE disappointment.
