U2's GA here were the cheapest at 50usd. Except the ones I had to go through an agency to get...those were 200. But I got on stage so it was totally worth it
I have heard of some bands being that cheap here, but it's usually some shitty thrash metal band nobody's heard of that thinks it's cool because they have a song called Pissing On Your Mother or something childish like that. They probably have just a demo disc out, on CD-Rs, recorded in their friend's basement, without any mixing.

Any band of any note is sure to cost you at least $25, and any coming from further afield than New Zealand is sure to cost even more.

I can't fucking wait for Porcupine Tree, that's going to make my year.

Djibouti kind of looks like a messed up Pac Man trying to eat the sea.

Maybe they charge more to compensate for their airfare? Maybe EITS is not as big here so they couldn't hcarge as much? (despite writing the soundtrack to a very popular football show.)

what's the xrate anyway?

I go to movies so little that I don't even know if a student discount exists at cinemas here. I'm expecting to pay about $20 here since it's Imax, and I'll be pleasantly surprised if it's less.

Whatever the case, it looks like I'll get to hang out with a really cool group of Melburnian Interferencers.

Part of it was likely to do with the fact it's the first time EITS has come to Australia. Then yeah, there's the expense of flying themselves and their gear here, then the further expenses incurred due to how sparsely populated Australia is and how far they have to travel between each show.

and it's a truly amazing cinematic experience. Even if I didn't like u2 I'd have been impressed with the 3d part - it really is like you're right there.

Wow, that's really good. I remember when US$1 = AUS$2. But the wheels are really spectacularly coming off your economy, it seems.

It will be our next chat thread. We have decided that if we can't hijack other threads, we can have a world tour instead.

WE DID IT!

Making the Djibouti thread is all yours, Vazza, if you want/have time to do it.
